There are many ways that age starts to show itself on the face. Fine lines, wrinkles, dark spots, and more can make us look a lot older than we feel. IPL photofacials offer a non-invasive and non-surgical way to address many skin imperfections at once. Using high-intensity pulses of light, collagen production can be stimulated, leaving you looking refreshed.
How Do IPL Photofacials Work?
High-intensity waves of visible light are targeted at the areas of skin you would like treated. The light energy is translated into heat energy, which is what causes your body to start producing collagen. This treatment is designed so that it can reach lower layers of skin without impacting the surface.
Prior to beginning your treatment, you will be given protective eyewear. This is done to protect your eyes from the flashes of light. The treatment can then be carried out in the comfort of our office.
Results develop in the weeks following the treatment. How many sessions you need will depend on what issues you are trying to address. If you have more than one type of skin issue you would like to treat, multiple sessions may be needed to impact different layers of skin. Most issues can be greatly improved by a series of treatments.
After your treatment, there is no set downtime. You will want to avoid too much direct sun exposure and wear plenty of sunscreen for a set amount of time after the treatment.
