IPL photofacial treatments transform red, blotchy skin into a radiant complexion
Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) photorejuvenation 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. IPL treatments are both safe and non-invasive and can easily be tailored to your condition and skin type.
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.
IPL Photofacial Skin Rejuvenation
The IPL Photofacial Process
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. Each treatment takes 20-60 minutes.
Each patient and skin problem is unique and we recommend you talk with us to create a treatment plan that is right for your skin. It is recommended that you have a series of 3 to 6 sessions that provide excellent long-term results, minimal adverse effects and high satisfaction. By dividing the treatments into several visits, the procedure provides gradual improvement with very low risk, and it preserves the wonderful “no downtime” feature that people appreciate so much. In fact, you can even return to work the same day and resume all your regular activities.
