How Does the IPL Photo Facial Work?
IPL, or intense pulsed light, delivers a specific amount of light output to treat various skin conditions. Without damaging the skin, the light penetrates the sub-surface skin layers and is absorbed by the blood vessels or by pigmentation. The heat absorbed by the targeted areas works to stimulate your skin cells to promote new collagen, which in turn can fade age spots, improve fine lines and wrinkles, shrink large pores, and lift tired-looking skin. The goal of this process is to restore your skin to its natural beauty, blending its natural colors, and making it smoother, vibrant and younger-looking.
This treatment can address a wide range of challenges, including:
- Sun damage (face, chest, shoulders)
- Acne scarring
- Skin texture
- Facial redness
- Broken capillaries
- Brown spots
- Age spots
- Dark circles around the eyes
- Small blood vessels
- Sun-induced freckles on the hands, chest, and face
- Broken capillaries around the nose
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Large pores
A series of microdermabrasions or chemical peels prior to the laser treatment can result in better stimulation of the collagen and elastin fibers. New collagen growth can continue for four to six months post-treatment. Photofacials can also be combined with our plasma facelifts for more dramatic results!
