What is an IPL Photofacial?
The Intense Pulse Light (IPL) Photofacial procedure is designed to transform the appearance of red, pigmented skin to help you achieve the beautiful, radiant complexion you’ve been longing for. If you are tired of living with sun damaged skin, Rosacea or hyperpigmentation and are looking for a safe and effective treatment, the Photofacial treatment may be exactly what you need.
Not to be confused with laser treatments, the Photofacial reduces many of the effects of aging and increases the production collagen using pulses of light.
Fast and virtually pain free, it’s not uncommon for patients to schedule this procedure during their lunch break. Unlike more invasive procedures that require a recovery period, patients who receive Photofacials are able to return to most of their normal daily activities immediately after the treatment is finished. That said, we recommend that patients avoid working outside for 24 hours or doing anything that ads heat to the skin.
Typically each patient will receive a series of three to five treatments performed at four to six week intervals. The treatments, however, are customized for each patient’s skin type and condition, which means you’ll achieve the best possible results for your individual needs.
