A Photofacial involves a series of Intense Pulse Light (IPL) treatments that improves the appearance of Rosasea flushing and sun damaged skin, suppresses age spots and photo-aging and improves skin texture. IPL also improves the appearance of mild acne scars, reduces large pores, corrects dark circles around the eyes and reduces fine lines. This powerful treatment involves little to no “downtime”; normal activities resume immediately.
Other applications for this exciting new medical technology include hair removal or hair reduction, acne and associated complications, vascular lesions and skin tightening.
The intense light is applied as a series of gentle pulses to the treatment area. Without damaging the skin, the light penetrates the skin and is absorbed by any abnormally dilated vessels or pigmentation. Lesions darken and then slowly they flake off or are absorbed by the body. Treatment can take place as frequently as every 3 weeks.
For optimal results, a series of five treatments is recommended. Some patients see significant improvement with two or three treatments while others might require more. Follow up treatments may be needed once a year to maintain desired results.
