What is IPL Photofacial?
IPL Photofacial is Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) technology that addresses the visible signs of sun damage, such as irregular pigmentation, “age spots,” enlarged pores, increased capillaries and facial redness. It will improve the texture, tone and coloration of your skin on the face, chest, hands or arms.
What are the Latest Advances in Photofacial Treatments?
The LimeLight™ laser advanced technology delivers visible light selectively to the pigmented spots and red areas of the skin. In a week or two, the darkened brown spots will begin to flake off and the skin will clear. Capillaries and redness gradually fade with each treatment. This equipment is able to automatically adjust the settings to skin type and problem areas, resulting in much better results than many other devices in the marketplace.
How Many Treatments Does it Take to See Results?
Usually one to two treatments are recommended to effectively address the needs of most patients. Topical anesthetic is optional and there is usually minimal social “down time.” New spots and redness may occur in time, due to sun exposure, but can be minimized with liberal applications of sunblock. These areas can also be retreated.
