What are IPL Photofacials?
Short for Intense Pulsed Light, IPL photofacials utilize light-based energy waves that are emitted directly into the skin, bypassing the surface without damaging healthy skin or tissues. IPL photofacials can effectively target a wide range of skin conditions, including:
- Fine lines
- Facial redness
- Sun damage
- Enlarged pores
- Textural irregularities
- And more!
The light-based therapy of IPL photofacials reduces the appearance of discoloration in the skin while also gently heating underlying collagen, causing coagulation and tightening. Taking from a half hour to an hour depending on your individual condition, IPL photofacials are often ideal for patients who have busy schedules.
Am I a Good Candidate for IPL Photofacials?
Men and women who are experiencing skin discoloration or irregularities and who want to improve the look and feel of their skin without abrasive or harsh treatments may be candidates for IPL photofacials. During your consultation with Dr. Jen, factors such as your individual condition and skin type will be evaluated to determine if IPL photofacials are the best course of treatment for you.
Are There Any Side Effects?
As IPL photofacials do not harm the surface of the skin, the healing time is significantly lower than with other skin rejuvenation procedures. Some minor, temporary flushing or redness may be present in treated areas, which should subside within a day or two depending on the size of the treated area and the severity of the condition.
How Many Sessions Will I Need?
Depending on your skin condition and aesthetic goals, multiple sessions may be necessary to effectively clear and improve your skin. During your consultation, our medical team will create a treatment plan that is customized to your individual needs and let you know how many sessions you may need for your cosmetic goals to be realized.
