Treatment for Many Skin Conditions
IPL photofacials are a good treatment option for myriad common skin concerns and imperfections such as brown spots, vascular lesions, uneven skin tone, premature aging, pigmented lesions, and sun damage. These are skin rejuvenation treatments that use intense pulsed light found in our UV spectrum to penetrate to our dermis layer of the skin. Usually, topical anesthetics or numbing creams are not required as patients just feel a slight warming on their skin.
Improved Skin Tone & Texture
IPL photofacials work by targeting the melanin in your skin to reduce the appearance of any vascular and pigmented lesions, resulting in an even skin tone. It also stimulates collagen production, which improves skin texture and reduces fine lines and wrinkles. IPL photofacials results in a bright complexion that aligns with your natural complexion.
Quick, Convenient and Minimal Downtime
Unlike other cosmetic procedures that require significant downtime, IPL photofacials have minimal downtime, and you can return to your daily routine and normal activities immediately afterwards. Treatments typically take around 30 minutes to an hour, making them a quick and convenient solution for those with busy schedules. Though skin improvements can be noticed even after a single treatment, usually 3 treatments provide optimal results.
IPL Photofacials: Safe & Effective Skin Treatments
IPL photofacials have numerous advantages when it comes to dealing with a variety of skin concerns. At our clinic, IPL photofacials are performed by our highly trained and experienced cosmetic treatment professionals. However, it is essential to note that IPL photofacials are not suitable for everyone. If you have a history of skin cancer, are pregnant, taking certain medications, or have an active skin infection, IPL photofacial procedures may not be suitable for you.
And although IPL photofacials are safe and effective, there are some possible complications and unwanted side effects that you should be aware of, including:
Some patients may experience mild redness, swelling, or bruising immediately after treatment, and mild discomfort that subsides within a few hours.
In rare cases, IPL can cause skin discoloration, which usually resolves within a few weeks. In comparison to patients with fair skin, patients with darker skin or brown skin seem more susceptible to this.
Patients are advised to avoid sun exposure and wear broad-spectrum sunscreen for at least two weeks after treatment to prevent sun sensitivity.
