A Photofacial is an FDA approved, non-invasive skincare treatment that utilizes laser light-based technology to diminish the signs of aging, treat sun damage, correct hyper pigmentation, and get rid of Rosacea and vascular imperfections. Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) (sometimes called broadband light or photofacials) treatments are an extremely popular procedure.

How Is It? How Does It Work?

Using the latest technology in laser skin resurfacing and skin rejuvenation, a Photofacial works by safely emitting an intense pulsed light, also known as an IPL Photofacial, over targeted areas of the skin.

Short, pulsating blasts focus a high energy light below the surface of the skin. This stimulates your skin’s natural collagen production. It also destroys any melin that cause age spots and uneven skin tone. IPL light floods over a large area (as opposed to a direct, narrow-focused laser) and attracts superficial dark pigmentation, drawing it to the surface rapidly. They are highly effective in clearing up dark spots, spider veins, and pigmentation imperfections.

Benefit Breakdown

The benefits of intense pulsed light therapy cover almost the entire spectrum of cosmetic dermatology. When performed by a qualified skin care specialist, IPL photofacial treatment can help nearly all aspects of skin aesthetics and structure.

Another benefit of IPL photorejuvenation procedures is that they allow for additional treatment with chemical peels, microdermabrasion, and other facial skin treatments that target the outermost layer of skin, the epidermis.

Since IPL photofacials target deeper layers of the skin, they can be safely performed in conjunction with other, more superficial treatments.
