IPL-Photofacial in Scottsdale & Avondale
WHAT IS INTENSE PULSED LIGHT?
Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) technology is a treatment breakthrough that can correct a variety of benign skin conditions, such as facial skin imperfections, the signs of photo-aging, birthmarks, unsightly small veins, and other blemishes. It offers a safe, non-invasive solution that can be tailored to your individual condition and skin type. IPL provides superior cosmetic results and outstanding satisfaction, through a new process called photorejuvenation.
HOW IS PHOTOREJUVENATION PERFORMED?
A cold gel is usually applied to the area to be treated, and you will be given dark glasses to protect your eyes from the bright light. The smooth glass surface of the IPL handpiece is gently placed on your skin and pulses of light are applied. You may feel a slight sting, like the snap of a small rubber band. Treatment is generally administered in a series of 3 to 6 sessions that provide excellent long-term results, minimal adverse effects and high satisfaction. Each treatment takes 20-60 minutes.
WHY ARE MULTIPLE TREATMENTS NECESSARY?
Depending on the number of conditions we are treating, and the severity of the individual problem, a series of 3 to 6 treatment sessions may be recommended. You can return to work the same day and resume all your regular activities. IPL treatments do require limited sun exposure and our Aestheticians will go over the precautions prior to your treatment. Wearing sunscreen and avoiding sun exposure after the treatment will be very important.
By dividing the treatments into several visits, the procedure provides gradual improvement with very low risk and it preserves the wonderful "no down time" feature that people appreciate so much.
WHAT CONDITIONS CAN IPL TREAT?
Facial imperfections and abnormalities can detract from your well being and appearance, no matter how healthy and young you feel. IPL technology helps create smoother-looking skin. After a series of treatments, you can see a significant reduction of unwanted pigmentation. The same treatment can be used effectively on the neck, chest, and hands.
The face has an extensive network of veins and tiny blood vessels called capillaries. Over time, aging, trauma, sun exposure, and certain lifestyle factors cause capillaries to break appearing as red streaks or blotches on the face. IPL therapy can eliminate damaged veins and capillaries thus removing virtually all traces of these unsightly blemishes.
