What is IPL Photofacial?

Intense Pulsed Light Photofacial is a laser skin treatment that uses light to go beneath the surface of your skin to smooth out and reduce discoloration. It works by lightening the discolored areas and produces new collagen under the skin epidermis to improve the skin tone and texture.

IPL Photofacial is an in-office, safe, and effective treatment that requires no anesthesia. It removes dark spots, skin discoloration, and other ailments created by environmental factors by targeting pigmented cells only and not touching the other cells in your skin.

How does IPL Photofacial treatment work?

IPL photofacial treatment is minimally invasive. Our clinic is designed in a way to give our clients a relaxing, soothing, and comfortable atmosphere while your skin is treated with the photofacial procedure.

Photofacial treatment involves a broad range of light colors to treat skin conditions. Filters are used to deliver light of different wavelengths to different layers of the skin. The wavelength can be adjusted and managed to depend upon the skin and what part to target.

Your eyes are protected by special eyewear to protect them from the light used during the procedure. The doctor uses handheld equipment to focus on high energy light beams on targeted areas. There is little to no pain involved during the photofacial treatment. However, you may experience inflammation, mild swelling, and discomfort but these can be healed by icing down or applying cooling gel to the area.

What skin conditions are treated by IPL Photofacials?

  • Sun Spots or Age Spots
  • Wrinkles and fine lines
  • Large pores
  • Broken blood vessels- capillaries or spider veins
  • Mild acne scarring
  • Melasma

This treatment is ideal for delicate areas of the face such as cheeks, sides of your skin, upper lip, and upper and lower eyelids. It stimulates the growth of both hyaluronic acid and collagen.
