What is a photofacial?
An IPL Photofacial is a type of skin treatment that uses light to rejuvenate and repair damaged skin. IPL Photofacials involve using a very strong light source, called an Intense Pulse Light (IPL), to heat the skin and, in turn, stimulate healing of the skin.
What conditions are IPL Photofacials used to treat?
IPL Photofacials are typically used to treat sun damaged skin, such as age/sun spots, as well as small blood vessels known as vascular lesions. In addition, IPL photofacials may be used to treat redness of the skin, or Rosacea, and sometimes small wrinkles known as Rhytides. Lastly, IPL Photofacials may be beneficial in treating acne.
What body parts do photofacials typically treat?
The most common areas treated with IPL Photofacials are those that get the most sun exposure. These include the face, upper chest, shoulders and back.
How is the IPL Photofacial treatment performed?
IPL Photofacials are simple procedures. An intense light source is applied directly next to, or on to, the skin to generate a heating effect. This heat in turn triggers an immune and repair mechanism within the skin, ultimately resulting in skin turnover and new skin growth.
How much do IPL Photofacials cost?
IPL Photofacials are priced by the treatment or by packages, and are priced by the amount of treatment area applied. Photofacials for a small area start at $199/ visit, or $599 for a package of 4 sessions.
How long do results from IPL Photofacials last?
IPL Photofacial results may persist indefinitely if proper sun protection is applied. Many clients feel that their Photofacial treatments benefit from yearly maintenance.
