IPL, or Photo Facial, uses many wavelengths to fix unwanted skin pigment conditions or vein changes. The light waves pass through the top layer of skin to the targeted lesion, either pigmented or vascular. In IPL treatment for pigment issues: The light heats the pigment cells and destroys them.
IPL is a versatile and effective non-invasive procedure that uses light energy to target the skin without damaging the surrounding tissues. IPL can be used to address pigmentation issues, vascular lesions, redness, and acne.
Common areas of the body where IPL can be used include:
Good candidates for IPL are individuals who have photo-aged or sun damaged skin. IPL is most effective for people with lower Fitzpatrick's and is more likely to cause hyperpigmentation and discoloration in people with high Fitzpatrick's. Consult your technician to determine if your skin may benefit from IPL. Together, you can discuss ideal treatments options if IPL is not well suited for you.
Your technician will begin by consulting with you to determine the primary area of concern and best treatment options before starting your procedure. We’ll review your medical history to ensure you are a candidate for IPL. In order to track the progress of the targeted area, we’ll take photos of the area of treatment. Your expert technician will then clean the treatment area, and begin the IPL procedure. The procedure duration is dependent on the size of the area being treated, but most patients can expect to be in the office for 30 minutes to 1 hour on average. This treatment has little to no down time, and regular activity may be resumed the following day.
