IPL-Photo Facial



Both the pleasures and stresses of life tend to cause our skin to appear older, and the signs of aging and sun-damage are typically most visible on a person`s face. Photo rejuvenation is a process which uses intense pulsed light (IPL) to fade or eliminate benign pigmented spots and vascular lesions while diminishing the size of pores, sun damage, and wrinkles in your skin. Consequently, your skin becomes smoother, with a younger appearance.

Unlike laser resurfacing and chemical peels, the beauty of the noninvasive Photo rejuvenation is that there is virtually no downtime. Photo rejuvenation has minimal discomfort with an absence of scarring, leaving the skin looking younger and healthier immediately.

Photo rejuvenation selectively targets abnormal changes that develop with age and successfully improves fine lines, sun-damage, age spots, the symptoms of rosacea, broken veins, enlarged pores, and numerous other facial flaws by causing new cells to form and stimulating the creation of collagen in the dermis. This gives the skin a better texture and the formation of new collagen results in decreased fine lines and the repair of sun damage.

How Photo facial Rejuvenation works:

Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) is applied in a series of gentle pulses over the treatment area. Without damaging the skin, the light penetrates through the skin and is absorbed by the treated skin imperfection. The heat causes minimal damage to the area and the body begins its natural healing process. Treatments are most effective for improving the appearance of the face, neck, chest, and hands and may vary from 15 to 45 minutes depending on the size of the area to be treated. When the pulse of light is delivered, the sensation is similar to a snap of a rubber band. After treatment the skin is cleansed, cooled with a cool compress, and a sunscreen is applied. Photo Facial is appealing to many because it can rapidly treat the entire face, not just a single problem or area. It is perfect for delicate areas such as the neck and chest and is also very beneficial and effective for the hands. Patients have a high degree of satisfaction with the results and you can expect to see a gradual decrease in redness, broken capillaries, flushing, irregular pigmentation, pore size and fine lines. After each treatment, the skin will feel smoother, look younger, and appear to have a more even tone.


What results can I expect?

After only one treatment, your skin will have a more even tone with a smoother look and feel. Sunspots will fade. Pore sizes will shrink. Fine lines and wrinkles will gradually decrease in size. These improvements will steadily increase with each treatment. Patients with rosacea will see a progressive decrease in redness with every treatment.


What will recovery be like?

Post-operative discomfort is almost nonexistent. After treatment with most light systems, the treated skin may appear a little flushed and capillaries may seem to be more visible. The flushed look soon fades away, and the capillaries appear to vanish, leaving the skin looking younger. It`s that simple.


How many treatments will I need?

Depending on the area treated, there will be a series of five to eight treatments. Treatments usually take from 15 to 30 minutes.
