About IPL Photorejuvenation
Intense pulsed light (IPL) skin rejuvenation uses high-energy pulses of light to improve the skin’s appearance. Also referred to as IPL photorejuvenation, photofacial therapy, and pulsed-light therapy, IPL skin rejuvenation is a nonabrasive and noninvasive treatment option for removing red and brown pigment from the skin. IPL penetrates below the surface of the skin, leaving the top layer of skin intact, which means that there is no post-treatment recovery period. The light is absorbed by the pigment in sun spots and the blood in the visible vessels and converted to heat. The heat dissolves the cells that create the pigment and shrinks the vessels.
IPL is used to treat age spots, birthmarks, freckles caused by the sun, symptoms of rosacea, spider veins, and scarring from acne; it is also an effective tool for hair removal.
IPL Photorejuvenation Reviews
How much does IPL cost?
Your skin is unique so the cost of a photofacial is dependent on your condition. Sometimes, About Face & Body Medical Spa offers specials on treatments, like IPL, and we accept several payment options. During your consultation, one of our team members can estimate your cost and recommend the number of treatments.
How quick are the results from IPL?
Patients can see visible improvements following their appointments, but optimal results take about one month after finishing all of your treatments. After each session, you should begin to see gradual improvement, which reduces blotchiness, redness, sun spots, and age spots over time.
What are the possible side effects of IPL?
Most patients have mild side effects, like temporary redness, swelling, crusting, bruising, or superficial blisters. These fade 2 – 3 days following your treatment. Your skin will be photosensitive. Please keep in mind that excessive sun exposure will affect your results. Whenever you go outside, you should always wear sunscreen to prevent issues, like spots and redness.
