The Intense Pulsed Light (IPL™) Photofacial is a non-invasive treatment for superficial blemishes. It can be very effective in treating a variety of skin issues including discoloration due to Rosacea, sun damage, age spots, freckles, uneven skin tone, and acne. It is one of the safest light-based facial treatments available.
The technique uses broad-spectrum light to penetrate multiple layers of the skin. The light is applied in brief flashes, and as it warms the skin, it stimulates the body to produce collagen in the targeted area.
The procedure takes about 30 minutes. Unlike many laser treatments, no skin is removed during an IPL™ Photofacial, so recovery time is minimal.
The treatment is not recommended for patients with darker skin pigmentation.
Ideal candidates for the procedure can benefit from improved skin texture, more even skin coloration, reduced pore size, and even minimized the appearance of wrinkles. The benefits typically occur gradually over a few weeks following the treatment with long-lasting results.
