What is an IPL PhotoFacial?

If you have skin discoloration, uneven skin tone, hyperpigmentation, Facial Veins, and other complexion concerns, you may see your best results with an IPL PhotoFacial treatment at Skinatomy Laser Clinic.

How Does IPL PhotoFacial Work?

Intense Pulsed Light therapy is a treatment that can help even out skin discoloration, reduce hyperpigmentation, get rid of freckles, improve rosacea, and remove spider veins. A technician starts by targeting specific cells with light energy. These cells consume the energy and the light is transformed into heat; resulting in damage to the problem cells to prevent further cellular regeneration.

What makes IPL different from laser treatment is that it is able to target cells without damaging any other skin tissue. Intense Pulsed Light therapy can produce and distribute multiple wavelengths three times stronger than regular laser therapy. This procedure targets the second layer of skin and keeps the first layer of your skin looking smooth and healthy. This procedure is generally non-invasive with little to no recovery time. Since the treatment only targets the second layer of skin it doesn’t leave behind any signs of treatment allowing you to resume your daily activities right away. These technologies can give you soft, supple, healthy and even skin.

Am I a Good Candidate For IPL PhotoFacial?

You’re a good candidate for this treatment if you have hyperpigmentation, spider veins, uneven skin tone, scarring, and other pigmented lesions that are preventing you from achieving your best complexion.

How Long Does a Typical Treatment Take?*

A typical IPL PhotoFacial procedure takes about 45 to an hour to perform, depending on the treatment area and what’s being treated.

What Results Will I See?*

Treatment options and visits are dependants on your skin condition and color. You may also need 3 to 5 IPL PhotoFacial treatments in order to see your ideal results. Your skin will start to improve its appearance about 2 to 3 weeks after each IPL PhotoFacial procedure.

Is There Any Downtime?

There’s no downtime, but clients may experience a little bit of redness and peel after the treatments, which is normal. You should also wear sunscreen after your procedure, as your skin will be very sensitive to the sun’s UV rays.
