What is an IPL® Photofacial?
The IPL® photofacial is an innovative procedure to treat many common skin problems. Unlike alternatives, IPL® photofacial treatments do not require surgery or the use of lasers. Instead, this treatment utilizes intense pulsed light (IPL®), a broad-spectrum light, to safely and effectively treat common skin disorders.
What Does the IPL® Photofacial Treat?
During an IPL® photofacial, high-energy, board-spectrum light waves are used on the skin to treat problem areas. The light can be used to restore the skin’s condition and stimulate collagen growth for maximum radiance. The treatment is usually done over the course of several sessions and can be used to treat the following:
- Acne scarring
- Sun damage
- Large pores
- Age spots
- Spider and varicose veins
This procedure can also be used to remove unwanted body hair. Unlike treatments which require the use of lasers, the IPL® treatment is not dependent on hair color for success. The IPL® photofacial is effective to remove unwanted hair of any color, with minimal discomfort.
What is the IPL® Photofacial Procedure Like?
The IPL® photofacial is typically performed over the course of several office visits. Because it is gentle, yet effective, the results continue to develop over the course of multiple treatments. At each office visit, our doctor will apply a cooling gel to the skin to be treated. Then, using the specialized, handheld IPL® device, Dr. Wallace will target the light to treat pigmentation, visible veins or hair. The treatment typically lasts no longer than 30 minutes, and you can continue with your day as planned.
Who is a Strong Candidate for an IPL® Photofacial?
The IPL® photofacial procedure is low risk and very effective. Unlike surgical procedures, harsh facials, and lasers, this treatment is fast and requires no downtime. If you continue to struggle with pigmentation issues, uneven tone or unwanted hair, this procedure may be the safest and most effective option. Because it is highly effective and minimally invasive, this procedure is an option for most people who suffer from discoloration, spots and/or unwanted hair.
How Much Does an IPL® Photofacial Cost?
