- Broken capillaries
- Brown sun spots (hyperpigmentation)
How does the Photofacial treatment work?
IPL Photofacials use a broad spectrum of light targeted to the lower layers of the epidermis causing the skin to produce new collagen and connective tissue while reducing abnormal pigmentations. They thus support the upper skin layer better and makes the skin surface smoother and with a more uniform color. IPL Photofacials also targets vascular lesions and symptoms of rosacea and signs of photoaging.
What skin conditions does a Photofacial treat?
IPL Photofacials improves vascular complexion problems such as vascular redness (telangiectasias) and rosacea by up to 80 to 90%. They also treat sun-damaged skin, large pores, hyperpigmentation. IPL Photofacials are also used as a preventative measure against common signs of aging and a wide range of skin types can be treated.
What are Photofacial treatments Like?
IPL Photofacial treatments usually take less than thirty minutes in our office. Most patients will have a series of 3 to 5 treatments and each treatment is about 2-3 weeks apart. Photofacials have low levels of discomfort. Topical anesthetics are usually not required, but can be used if the patient chooses to do so. A cooled hand piece is placed over the treatment area and delivers the light energy which can feel like a rubber band snapping against your skin. Once the treatment is completed sunscreen is applied and patients leave with generally no noticeable visible signs of the treatment. Many patients do the treatment and return to work the same day.
What should I expect from a Photofacial treatment?
Since Photofacials are performed in a series, you will see more improvement after each consecutive treatment. After the first session, skin will already look and feel smoother and will have a more even skin tone. Over time sunspots will fade, pore size will reduce and fine lines and wrinkles will smooth out. Rosacea patients will see a progressive improvement with each appointment. Abnormal sun spots, aging spots will fade with each session. At first these spots darken and within a day or two they flake away revealing lighter skin underneath.
Gone are the days of needing to hide behind make-up or just ‘living’ with skin discolorations.
