IPL Photofacials – Photofacial – IPL Treatment
Say goodbye to the effects of sun damage, rosacea, hyperpigmentation, and more. With the innovative Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) photofacial procedure, gentle skin rejuvenation is now easier than ever. *IPL photorejuvenation allows patients to transform red, blotchy and over-pigmented skin into a radiant complexion with no downtime.
A photofacial is a 30-minute procedure in which intense pulses of light are used to penetrate deep into the skin. Photorejuvenation then causes collagen and blood vessels below the epidermis to constrict, reducing redness, pigmentation and age lines. The procedure involves only minimal discomfort, while the redness and swelling that sometimes occur after treatment disappear shortly. Most benefits of a photofacial occur gradually in the weeks following treatment. And for even greater cosmetic enhancement, patients may also opt for a PhotoFacial and RF technology (skin tightening) to achieve excellent anti-aging results.
People who have blotchy, sun-damaged, or discolored skin, or whose skin is affected by large pores, freckles, or wrinkles, can benefit from an IPL. The procedure is also quick and involves no downtime, making it a convenient option for people with busy schedules. People with white, untanned skin that is still somewhat elastic are the best candidates for an IPL photofacial. It is also important for patients to have a realistic understanding about what the procedure can do. *When performed on the right person, it effectively improves skin texture, eliminating discolorations, reducing pore size, and minimizing wrinkles and fine lines. If you have rosacea, a condition that causes blotchy redness in the face, you can also benefit from an IPL photofacial.
While IPL photorejuvenation is generally more costly than procedures like microdermabrasion and chemical peels, it is much less expensive than most cosmetic surgery and laser skin treatment.
During an IPL treatment, high energy light waves are used to reduce or eliminate many common effects of aging, including facial wrinkles and skin discolorations. IPL light also encourages the production of collagen, a natural protein that fills in wrinkles, making the skin smooth and supple. With each treatment, the results of IPL become more pronounced.
Four to Five IPL treatments spaced 3-4 weeks apart are normally required for optimal results. And typically it will be recommended for you to have 1 treatment annually to keep up with your good results. The most important things to remember following IPL treatments are to avoid the sun for several days and to wear plenty of sunscreen.
All pricing is based on a 4-series of treatments spaced 3-4 weeks apart. A four-series should be the right number of treatments to accomplish the needs of most.
