IPL Photo Facial

IPL Photo Facial

Photo facials use a series of Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) treatments to correct an array of textural and pigmentation skin issues. This non-ablative and non-invasive treatment yields excellent results in a short amount of time. After a few treatment sessions, you’ll notice a drastic reduction in the appearance of dark spots, fine lines, and visible blood vessels or veins. Everyone will take notice of how even-toned your skin has become. IPL Photo facials can be performed on all most any area of the body and face.

How IPL Photo Facial Works?

This intense pulsed light system releases highly controlled light energy into areas of skin imperfection. When the pulses of light are applied to the skin, some patients report feeling some stinging, similar to a small rubber band being snapped against the skin. Therefore, we recommend applying an anesthetic cream to the area 30-60 minutes before the procedure. To achieve the best long-term results, we recommend our patients undergo four to six treatment sessions.
