Intense Pulse Light (IPL) photofacial is a non-invasive cosmetic treatment designed to produce younger and healthier looking skin. IPL is robust for brightening complexion and evening pigmentation.
Sun damage can quickly age the face, leaving dark spots, uneven pigmentation, and fine lines. Just a single IPL treatment will quickly clarify these pestering problems. IPL specifically targets the melanin chromophores in the skin to only destroy the pigmented regions without affecting the healthy surrounding skin.
IPL can also treat red spots and diffuse redness from broken capillaries.
What to expect:
Patients experience minimal to no pain during this treatment. A topical numbing cream may be applied for complete comfort. Beginning at the time of your treatment, pigment will visibly come to the surface of the skin. Thus, the brown and red pigmented areas of treatment will darken, and through the course of a week these spots will scab over and slough off. After just one treatment, patients will see significant lightening of treated spots and total brightening of the skin. Typically, it takes 2-3 sessions for drastic clarification.
