IPL Photofacial treatments involve the application of intense pulses of light that deeply penetrate the skin. This is an effective treatment to help a range of skin issues, including wrinkles, sun damage, and hyperpigmentation. At Skin Deep MD, we use the IPL laser to transform dull, red, blotchy, or aging skin to a more radiant, healthy, evenly-toned appearance. Our treatments are all overseen by our physician, Dr. Melody Denham to ensure patient safety and to achieve the highest quality results with an IPL Photofacial – we want you to have the best experience and results possible.
What Is an IPL Photofacial?
Photorejuvenation uses intense pulsed light therapy to trigger regeneration. The technique involves the application of intense, pulsed light to the skin areas that are showing the signs of damage. An IPL device is used to treat surface flaws and simultaneously heat the collagen beneath the skin, stimulating natural collagen production. Increased collagen production is the perfect way to smooth lines and wrinkles and reduce the appearance of shallow acne scars. IPL technology can also reduce skin discoloration or skin flushing.
Am I a Good Candidate for IPL Photofacial?
IPL is a minimally-invasive procedure that can reduce the signs of aging and effectively treat a range of skin conditions. If you are in good general health, you may be a good candidate for this procedure if you:
- Have sun or age spots, scarring, or reddened skin
- Want to reduce pore size, minimize fine wrinkles, or improve skin texture
- Want to improve the appearance of your skin without an invasive procedure
What Skin Conditions Can Be Addressed with IPL Photofacial?
IPL Photofacial is an effective treatment for a range of skin issues, including:
- Stretch marks
- Age spots and sun spots
- Spider veins
- Large pores
- Broken capillaries
- Rough texture
What Is Recovery Like after IPL Photofacial?
As there is little damage to the skin in IPL photorejuvenation, recovery time is minimal. You may experience reddened skin after treatment, which typically dissipates within a few hours. Patients treated with our photofacial for severe acne may have a longer recovery time, but it is well worth it – they are typically amazed with the results.
It is important to avoid the sun for several days after IPL Photofacial and to use a good broad-spectrum sunblock for a minimum of two weeks following treatment. IPL photorejuvenation can produce truly impressive improvements but you must carefully protect your skin from ultraviolet rays for a few weeks following treatment.
What Are the Benefits of IPL Photofacial
IPL photorejuvenation is a minimally-invasive treatment with little discomfort and no downtime. It is nonablative (no skin is removed in the procedure) which means low risk and an easy recovery. An IPL Photofacial can address a wide range of skin problems, and this allows patients to treat multiple conditions in just one procedure.
Our medical professionals at Skin Deep MD use IPL laser with a high level of technical skill and an exceptional level of professionalism and care.
