IPL PHOTOFACIAL

Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) skin rejuvenation employs state-of-the-art technology to return your skin to a younger, healthier-looking state. As we age, small but visible signs of chronic exposure to the sun’s ultraviolet light appear on the skin, with laser-like technology, dramatic improvements can be achieved.

Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) is a form of photorejuvenation which uses a technology called flashlamp to produce high intensity light over broad spectrum visible and infrared wavelengths. For our photofacial patients, IPL is used to treat many skin conditions including rosacea, acne, sun damage, freckles, fine lines/wrinkles, broken capillaries, pigmented lesions and other skin discoloration issues. IPL has been a valued tool in aesthetics to even out skin tone for over a decade.

How does IPL work?

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 a coffee-ground-like texture that eventually flakes off revealing beautiful, radiant skin beneath.

Am I good candidate for a Photofacial?

Those with a 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.

How many treatments will i need?

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

How long will my results last?

Photofacial results perpetually improve over time, with best results being seen three months after the last treatment. Sun protection and skin care maintenance are essential to the longevity of the results. Sunburns and over exposure will bring back old spots and freckles and dullness will return if proper exfoliation during daily routines are neglected. A new series of treatments are recommended every year for optimal results.
