Photofacials are a safe and gentle alternative that tend to produce gradual improvements over a brief series of treatments. This is an ideal option for those whose busy lives will not allow for significant “down time”.
The treatment is also an excellent choice for those with healthy looking skin who simply want to maintain their appearance with a minimal risk treatment that produces nice results.
Intense pulsed light (IPL) devices are used to improve the appearance of the skin by gradually reducing unwanted pigmentation and redness (vascularity) through a series of non-invasive treatments.
Some patients also experience an improvement in overall skin tone and texture. IPL delivers light energy in short, gentle, adjustable pulses that minimize the risks of bruising or other problems while targeting unwanted skin pigment and redness.
The device produces a broad band of light that is absorbed by a variety of color imperfections in the skin and helps encourage the body to remove them, resulting in skin that is more uniform and youthful appearing.
