You care about your skin, especially on your face, but there are some harsh realities that cannot be avoided. Sometimes you miss a spot when applying sunscreen, or maybe you find yourself blushing and the redness taking longer than you’d like to fade. While it may feel like you’ve tried everything, an IPL Photofacial may be the answer to your problems.
A Photofacial using intense pulsed light, or IPL, laser is a specialized treatment that can improve the appearance of wrinkles as well as discolorations.
What an IPL Facial Can Treat
There are a variety of reasons to choose an IPL Photofacial as the treatment for you, and our team of experts are happy to help you make your decision. It is highly recommended if you have rosacea, or facial redness, because of how the wavelength spectrum during an IPL Photofacial interacts with vessels in the skin. This treatment is also good for pigment inconsistencies, sun damage or brown spots, fine lines and wrinkles, broken capillaries, spider veins, acne scars, enlarged pores, and rough skin.
How an IPL Facial Works
IPL laser treatments utilize high-intensity light pulses to target problem areas, such as dark spots or blemishes, that exist through multiple layers of tissue. The light changes these unwanted pigments into heat energy, which your body will either naturally absorb or shed. New skin that is more even in color and smoother in texture will work to take its place.
What is the Treatment Like?
Our medical professionals will help you determine if you are a good candidate for an IPL Photofacial. Together, you can address what you feel are your concerns with your skin, and a treatment plan will be developed.
Because IPL Photofacials target dark skin spots as problem areas, they may not be a good treatment for you if you have naturally darker skin. It is critical to consult our team of experts before pursuing this treatment.
IPL Photofacials are non-invasive, non-ablative procedures, and they are alternatives to treatments like deeper chemical peels. They are also an outpatient treatment performed in the comfort of our office, allowing you to relax then return to your daily routine.
