How IPL Photofacial Treatment Works

While other varieties of laser treatment utilize a single wavelength, IPL makes use of an assortment of different wavelengths of light. This results in a light that is not as focused and that can target broader areas. IPL can address the entire chest, face, neck, or hands.

Other forms of esthetic treatment cause more damage to the skin. IPL avoids this by penetrating the dermis’s second layer without damaging the top surface of the skin. In cases of acne, IPL oxygenates the skin’s pores and kills the bacteria responsible for the blemishes.

In IPL, the cells of pigment that provide your skin tones with color absorb light energy; this is converted into heat. Those pigment cells, when subjected to such heat, die. This removes the source of skin discoloration and provides new skin that lacks the previous blemish problems.

Time puts its stamp on the skin due to aging, among other factors. Skin layers weaken; they can appear thin, rough, wrinkled, and blemished. IPL photo rejuvenation tackles these imperfections gently and safely. With treatments, the skin grows healthier and thicker, meaning results improve over time.

The skin is rejuvenated in several ways. Pulses of light reach the deeper layers, repairing damage to prevent signs of aging in the future. The skin’s superficial layer sloughs off and reveals young cells. Collagen growth stimulation makes your skin cells start to behave as though they are younger again.

When to Expect Results

After a single photofacial treatment, you can expect the sight and sensation of smoother skin. With age spots, they darken first, then pass to the surface of the skin. There they fall away with the skin’s natural process of exfoliation.
