IPL Photofacial treatments utilize the latest advances in laser technology to help treat:
- Sun Damaged Skin
- Age Spots
- Premature Wrinkles
- Large Pores
- Unwanted Hair
On the face, neck, chest, hands, and most places on the body. Photofacial treatments utilize intense pulsed light of different wavelengths which penetrate deep below the skin’s surface to help start the production of new collagen and other connection tissues. This process leaves the skin rejuvenated and smooth with results being seen at the very first treatment.
The typical IPL Photofacial treatment lasts about 30 minutes, and they are typically scheduled across 3 week intervals. Most patients need between 5 to 8 treatments to get the optimum results. The actual treatment can be uncomfortable for some and has been compared to the snapping of a rubber band on the skin. Numbing creams can be placed on the skin 20 minutes before the treatment to decrease the discomfort. The discomfort subsides very quickly after the treatment.
