Intense Pulse Light Photo Facial
IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) treatment can harness the power of light to address and correct an array of skin pigmentation issues. Sometimes referred to as Fotofacial or Photofacial, IPL is also used to treat acne-prone skin. IPL Photo Facial is an intense pulsed light treatment that effectively treats men and women to remove brown spots and sun damage. IPL skin rejuvenation can improve uneven skin tone and signs of sun damage can be reversed in as little as 1-4 treatments, leaving you with youthful, even-toned skin. Treatments gently reduce excess pigmentation on sun exposed areas of the body including the face, neck, chest, back, hands, and arms. In addition to treating brown spots this light source treats redness, broken blood vessels, shrinks pore size, tightens skin, and can help with acne and rosacea. According to Stanford Medical University, the long-term effects of Photofacial actually reverse the signs of aging.
Skin Rejuvenation: Photo-rejuvenation targets skin cells by coagulation and necrosis of dermal and epidermal layers. The body naturally responds to this by creating new cells causing an overall skin renewal to the treatment area.
Pigmentation Reduction: The pigmented lesion contains high concentrations of melanocytes. The light absorbed in the lesion creates a controlled burn localized to the target which peels away along with the spot a few days after treatment leaving an even skin tone.
Vascular treatment: Targeting the epidermal and dermal layers, light heats the target blood vessels, causing coagulation of specific proteins in blood vessels, and in turn leading the body to naturally remove them.
What is IPL used to treat?
IPL can be used to rejuvenate the appearance of your skin and address a wide variety of skin conditions, including:
Uneven skin tone
Brown or red spots
