Many patients wish that there is a safe, easy and quick way to get rid of their freckles, sun damages, red complexion, broken capilaires, fine lines, and large pores. IPL Photofacial is one of our most exciting anti-aging solution to treat skin imperfection.

Using the advanced non-laser Intense Pulse Light technology, skincare professional gently delivers precise amounts of light energy through the skin’s surface to stimulate the production of collagen. As the new collagen forms, it softens the appearance of aging skin. Fine lines and wrinkles are decreased and the redness associated with rosacea and redness can be dramatically reduced. IPL Photofacial treatments restore a more youthful appearance and improve skin texture without any downtime – allowing you to return to work or leisure activities immediately.

Common Questions about IPL Photofacial

What are IPL Photo Rejuvenation or Photofacials?

IPL PhotoFacials remove discoloration and textural irregularities resulting in the appearance of healthier, clear and more vibrant skin.

Who should get treatment for photo rejuvenation?
If you suffer from photo damage, sun damage, freckles, broken capillaries or other environmental damage, PhotoFacials work exceptionally well to remove discoloration, improve skin texture and tone while providing a subtle tightening effect to the skin. Years of sun bathing and exposure to the natural elements can be removed after a short, no-down-time procedure.

How frequently do I need treatments?
A typical procedure would be four to six sessions, spaced one to four weeks apart. For discrete vascular areas such as spider veins and broken capillaries, a more aggressive approach may be determined.

How does a IPL photo rejuvenation rejuvenate my skin?
IPL Photo Facial uses gentle light and thermal energy to promote collagen production in the dermis and restore skin to a more youthful state. Brown spots (pigmented imperfections) from sun damage and aging, red blotching from spider vessels or rosacea (vascular imperfections), and rough porous skin texture will improve over a treatment series. Treatments consistently achieve visible improvement with little discomfort. Studies have concluded that flushing, redness and symptoms of rosacea improve more than 75% on average.

Does the treatment hurt?
There is little to no discomfort involved in the photo rejuvenation process. Our cutera limelight systems employ a sapphire chill tip that minimizes any discomfort.

What happens after each treatment?
Temporary pinkness of the skin can last a very short time (minutes, hours, a day) but the improvement in pigment and vascular irregularities can often be appreciated by the time you return for your next treatment. Brown spots and freckles temporarily become darker before they lighten. Particularly sensitive areas may crust.

Is IPL photo rejuvenation safe?
Treatment is very safe for the skin. There are no known long term health hazards from the light or thermal energy used. Both have been used for decades in medicine, surgery, and aesthetics without adverse effects.

What kind of results can I expect from a photo rejuvenation treatment?
Each treatment will result in gradual lightening and improvement of pigmented and vascular imperfections. Textural improvements are realized towards the end of the treatment series.
