IPL PHOTO FACIAL

What is IPL Photofacial?

IPL Photofacial is intense pulsed light that emits multiple wavelengths into the skin and effectively targets pigment producing cells below the surface of the skin.  The light energy is converted to heat energy and destroys the hyperactive melanin producing cells in the layers of your skin, eventually dispersing pigmented areas. The spots are pulled to the surface, eventually turning into coffee- ground like texture that eventually flakes off revealing beautiful, radiant, skin beneath.

 

What does IPL Photofacial treat?

  • Brown and Red Spots

  • Freckles

  • Sun Damage

  • Spider Veins

  • Redness

  • Rosacea (enlarged facial blood vessels)

  • Pigmented Imperfection

 

Who is/isn't a good candidate for IPL?

Those with higher Fitzpatrick score,  those with a tan and those with melasma are NOT good candidates. Because the light rays are attracted to pigment, darker skin tones can actually become discolored and melasma patches can become darker.

 

For the best results, 3-5 Treatments are typically recommended - about four weeks apart.
