An Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) Photofacial is a convenient, non-invasive skin care technology designed to treat rosacea, hyperpigmentation, sun damage, and loose skin. The Photofacial procedure has the power to dramatically improve the appearance of a patient’s complexion with minimal discomfort and side effects.
During the Photofacial procedure, the face is treated with pulses of intense light that penetrate deep into the inner layers of the skin. This treatment causes collagen fibers in the skin to tighten, improving the skin’s texture and elasticity. It also constricts blood vessels to improve coloration and complexion and reduces the appearance of large pores, acne, and acne scarring.
After completing IPL treatment, patients will have smoother, tighter skin and a clearer, more even complexion. Each IPL Photofacial treatment takes about 30 minutes, though some patients may require repeat treatments to achieve optimum results.
