Achieve the Luminous, Even-toned Skin You Desire With Our IPL Photofacials!
Although the terms “IPL,” “phototherapy,” “photorejuvenation,” and “photofacial” may sound a bit technical and abstract, it is important to familiarize yourself with these types of non-invasive skin rejuvenation services, which can offer remarkable benefits for the health and appearance of your skin, and are ideal treatments for aesthetic issues associated with sun-damaged (“photo-aged”) skin.
IPL stands for “intense pulsed light,” and IPL photorejuvenation treatments are performed to enhance the appearance of the skin by exposing sun spots, freckles, and other pigmentation irregularities to short pulses of visible light. In doing so, the collagen and blood vessels below the epidermis begin to constrict, reducing redness and wrinkles. At the same time, the temperature in your skin’s melanin (responsible for creating dark or hyper-pigmented areas of skin) is raised to such a point that it shatters the cells containing the pigment. Your body’s natural, instinctive response is to replace these cells with new, healthy skin cells, thereby giving the complexion a more youthful and even-toned appearance.
IPL photofacials produce dramatic results with little downtime and minimal risk of side effects. These quick, in-office treatments (20-30 minutes) can conveniently fit into even the busiest of schedules, and are optimally suited to treat and improve the following visible signs of aged, sun-damaged skin, such as:
- Wrinkles and fine lines
- Sun spots, age spots, and freckles
- Blotchy, irregular pigmentation
- Rosacea, broken capillaries, and facial redness
- Acne, enlarged pores
On average, a series of 3-5 photofacial treatments scheduled at 4-week intervals is sufficient to address and resolve most patients’ skin concerns.
