The IPL Facial is a new, non-invasive approach to skin rejuvenation which improves skin tone and the surface imperfections associated with aging and photodamage. The IPL Facial is ideal for any part of the face and neck with skin redness, tiny veins, or brown spots. Light brown spots also respond very well to treatment.*
How does the IPL Facial work?
By selecting Program A, B or C, your practitioner can customize your IPL Facial to your skin type and selectively treat the brown and/or red pigmented areas on your skin. It’s the heating of the pigmented brown or red cells that causes the therapeutic effect.
What should I expect?
One to three treatments are usually sufficient, although additional sessions are recommended for excessively sundamaged skin.* Treatments typically take less than an hour depending on the area of the body being treated. Immediately following your session, brown spots will darken, your skin may slightly redden, and the treated area may swell slightly. This typically only lasts a few hours, and within one to three weeks the darkened spots will flake off and fade. Diffuse redness will decrease and your complexion will show a marked improvement.*
Will the spots and redness reappear over time?
New brown spots, telangiectasia and diffuse redness may appear with new sun damage; however they too can be treated.* Remember to always apply broad-spectrum sunscreen when outdoors to minimize sun damage and the appearance of new spots and diffuse redness. Rosacea is chronic and cannot be “cured” with any laser or light source; however, its appearance can be improved.
