Achieve Smoother Skin with the IPL Photofacial

One of the gentlest laser treatments available today, the IPL Photofacial uses pulses of either IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) to affect skin at the cellular level, reversing various signs of aging. Whether you are suffering from acne, vascular lesions, rosacea, or other skin conditions, the IPL Photofacial can help you address it. 

What is an IPL Photofacial?

This photofacial treatment uses pulses of IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) to affect skin at the cellular level, resulting in a reduction in signs of aging. Photofacial treatments are usually painless and are typically compared to the feeling of a rubber band snap. FDA-approved since the 1990’s, this treatment has helped countless patients address their skin imperfections. It is also widely considered to be one of the most effective non-invasive treatments for rejuvenation. Photofacials can address various skin imperfections, such as hyperpigmentation, sun damage, brown spots, scarring, or rosacea. 

How does a Photofacial work?

Over time, aging and environmental factors break down the lower layers of our skin, leaving it looking thin, wrinkled, and discolored. Photofacials can treat these imperfections safely and effectively, providing results that gradually improve over time as the skin becomes fortified and healthy.

When pulses of light are emitted into the skin, they reach the deeper layers, effectively repairing damage and preventing new signs of aging from developing. This process involves the shedding of the top layer of the skin to reveal a youthful glow, the stimulation of collagen growth for stronger skin, and the rejuvenation of skin cells. After undergoing three to four treatments, patients find that their skin looks better than ever. 

What are the benefits of IPL Photofacial treatments?

  • Targets pigmentation irregularities, leading to a more even and uniform skin tone
  • Addresses sun-induced damage, such as sunspots and freckles, resulting in a clearer complexion
  • Targets age spots, reducing their appearance and promoting a more youthful look
  • Effective in reducing redness associated with conditions like rosacea, providing a calmer complexion
  • Stimulates collagen production, enhancing skin elasticity and reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Contributes to a reduction in pore size, promoting a smoother and more refined skin texture
  • A non-invasive procedure with minimal downtime, allowing for a swift return to regular activities.
  • Suitable for various skin types and areas of the body
  • Helps improve overall skin clarity, resulting in a fresher and healthier complexion
  • Can be tailored to address specific issues and cater to individual skincare goals

Who is an ideal candidate?

Virtually all patients looking to address signs of aging are considered candidates for this procedure. By targeting the deeper layers of the skin and causing micro-injuries, IPL Photofacials are effective at stimulating collagen production, improving the patient’s overall skin texture. The treatment can also repair small blood vessels that have become visible and address other skin irregularities. Photofacials can reduce fine lines, wrinkles, and sunspots with results that are long-lasting. 

What does the procedure entail?

While most facial treatments are time-consuming and disruptive to our lives, IPL Photofacial treatments can be carried out in as little as 30 minutes, making them incredibly convenient for those with busy schedules. Following the treatment, it is normal for patients to develop some redness and swelling, but these effects will dissipate over the course of a few days. Overall, there is no downtime following the treatment, ensuring that patients are able to get back to their regular routines immediately. This is ideal for patients who have jobs, children, or other life responsibilities. 

When will I see the results?

After just one treatment, patients already notice that their skin feels smoother. Age spots will become somewhat darker before they rise to the skin’s surface and are naturally eliminated from the body. Loose skin tightens up, and fine lines fade away, leaving you with smaller pores and a smoother look. Patients can achieve fantastic results by following all the guidelines laid out by Dr. Poulos.
