Photofacials (photorejuvenation) using Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) are noninvasive therapies that treat skin damage without disruption of the skin’s surface. Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) can simultaneously manage a broad range of facial concerns safely and effectively. Conditions such as benign brown pigmented lesions, broken capillaries, sun-induced freckles known as age spots, mottled pigmentation and poikiloderma can all be addressed with IPL- with no downtime. Multiple treatments may be needed for many conditions.
Facial imperfections and abnormalities can detract from your well-being and appearance, no matter how healthy and young you feel on the inside. IPL technology helps to reveal smooth skin. After a series of these IPL treatments, you will see a significant reduction of any unwanted pigmentation. The same treatment can be used effectively in areas such as the arms, hands, chest, neck and legs.
What is Intense Pulsed Light (IPL)?
Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) treatments can correct a variety of benign skin conditions, such as facial skin imperfections, the signs of photoaging, birthmarks, unsightly veins and other unsightly blemishes. IPL offers a safe, non-invasive solution that can be tailored to your individual condition and skin type, providing superior cosmetic results and outstanding satisfaction, through a process called photorejuvenation.
Why are multiple treatments needed?
A number of conditions may require additional treatments to treat the skin and reverse these signs of photodamage completely. At Spa in the City, we recommend a series of treatments starting at four sessions up to six to see optimal results. Our patients love this treatment because you can return to work the next day without any recovery. To reduce the risk and support gradual improvements in the skin’s tone and texture, we divide these IPL treatments into sessions with three to four weeks in between.
IPL Treats Broken Veins, Capillaries, and Benign Vascular Lesions
IPL reverses the effects of photodamage from the sun. IPL treats Rosacea and Dark or pigmented spots. It also reduces damaged veins and capillaries that appear on the the face. Along with time, aging, trauma, sun exposure, and certain lifestyle factors, some of these capillaries can break – appearing as red streaks or blotches on the face.
