Say goodbye to the effects of sun damage, rosacea, hyper-pigmentation, and more. With the innovative Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) photo-facial procedure, gentle skin rejuvenation is now easier than ever. IPL photo rejuvenation transforms red, blotchy skin into a radiant complexion. If your patients suffer from any of these problems, photo-facial treatments may be the approach you’ve been looking for.
What does IPL and PhotoFacial mean?
IPL stands for Intense Pulse Light and Photo-Facial is a generic term for a skin treatment that uses some kind of light-based technology. Photo facials have a number of different uses, but mostly treat brown spots, broken capillaries, and boost collagen production.
How does IPL work?
A PhotoFacial is a 30-minute procedure in which intense pulses of light (IPL) are used to penetrate deep into the skin. IPL uses a broad spectrum of wavelengths. The beams of light are directed at specific areas of damaged skin. IPL photo rejuvenation causes collagen and blood vessels below the epidermis to constrict, reducing redness and age lines.
After the IPL treatment, superficial brown spots will become darker within the first 24 hours and flake off in 7 – 14 days and reveal new, healthier skin.
IPL is noninvasive and requires minimal down time.
Who benefits from IPL/Photo-Facial treatments?
People who have blotchy, sun-damaged, or discolored skin, or whose skin is affected by large pores, freckles, or wrinkles, may benefit from an IPL photo-facial. The procedure is also quick and involves no downtime, making it a convenient option for people with busy schedules.
IPL Photo Facial treats a variety of skin conditions on the face and neck; Photo Body treatments will improve skin conditions affecting other areas such as the arms, back, legs, or chest. The main difference between Photo Facial and Photo Body treatment is the prospective down time. With facial treatments, the downtime is minimal. There may be slight swelling, redness, and increased brown pigmentation for a couple of days. The healing time for Photo Body treatments sometimes take slightly longer as the extremities have reduced circulation.
Conditions that can be treated with IPL:
- Acne scars
- Broken capillaries
- Brown spots
- Sunspots/Sun Damage
- Fine Lines
For best results, most cases require three to five treatments completed two to four weeks apart.
It is natural for your patients to want to look their best, but if they suffer from rosacea, sunspots, or fine lines, then looking great is difficult and sometimes feels impossible. IPL (intense pulsed light) Photo Facial can treat these problems and many more.
