If you want to improve the appearance of your complexion—without harming or removing the upper layer of the skin—consider IPL photofacials.
What is an IPL photofacial?
An IPL photofacial is a gentle, state-of-the-art approach to making your skin look younger and smoother. The process treats the full face, neck, chest or hands, rather than simply one isolated area or imperfection.
A series of IPL photofacial treatments can rejuvenate your complexion without downtime or a prolonged recovery process. And the process is easy to fit into your busy schedule—a full facial treatment can be completed in 30 minutes or less.
What does IPL stand for?
IPL stands for intense pulsed light. This revolutionary facial treatment method is not a laser. Unlike lasers, which operate on one wavelength, IPL photofacials use a broad-spectrum light source called flashlight technology.
How does an IPL photofacial work?
An IPL photofacial uses double and triple pulses of light, depending on your skin type and condition. Using a broad spectrum of light produces a ripple effect that reaches several layers deep into the skin. The depth of this penetration, as well as the specific light wavelength, are carefully controlled.
The intense pulsed light warms up the skin and uses heat to stimulate the body’s natural healing process.
These light pulses not only target superficial pigmentation or redness, but also penetrate to the collagen-stimulating layers of the skin. Result: Your skin is stimulated to produce new collagen and connective tissue, giving your skin a younger, smoother appearance.
