How does an IPL Photofacial work?
IPL Photofacial uses a specialized laser called Intense Pulse Light (IPL). During several treatments, the photofacial fades fine wrinkles and the brown spots caused by the sun in order to improve your skin texture and even reduce pore size. IPL energy offers gentle and steady improvements with minimal side effects and no down time as the IPL energy is being absorbed underneath the skin.
What are other benefits of the IPL Photofacial?
Even if you don’t have Rosacea, you can also undergo this procedure to get rid of facial imperfections brought about by sun damage and hyper-pigmentation. Photofacial is a quick and hassle-free way to treat Rosacea, and get rid of textural irregularities and discoloration that add years to your skin. It only takes about 15 minutes and doesn’t require any downtime. To get optimal results, it’s recommended to come back for touch-up treatments.
How long is the treatment duration?
Each photofacial session of this laser treatment only takes about 15 minutes. The exact duration depends on the patients' individual condition and skin type. Before getting started, we’ll explain each of the treatments you need and how long the interval between treatments is.
Do I need to plan for time off for the treatments?
No. As mentioned earlier, photofacials are non-invasive, thus they don’t require recovery time. You can have the IPL Photo-Rejuvenation treatment today and go back to work right away or the following day.
How long will my results last?
IPL can effectively get rid of discoloration and textural irregularities that make you look older than your age. But even if the procedure gave you excellent results, you will continue to age if you expose yourself to the sun and other environmental elements that cause premature aging. What you can do is minimize exposure and come back regularly for touch-ups.
