Intense pulsed light or photo facials can address concerns such as redness and hyperpigmentation with minimal downtime. Light energy is used to reverse the visible signs of aging caused by environmental wear and tear. In addition, it stimulates collagen production, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
The procedure does not involve any surgery or incisions. A handheld device is used to deliver pulses of broad-spectrum light to the layers of your skin. It is not painful, but tiny rubber bands flicking against the skin can feel like tiny rubber bands. The patient may also receive a topical anesthetic before treatment.
People who want to correct sun damage and other superficial skin concerns are usually good candidates for this treatment, regardless of their gender, skin tone, or skin type.
IPL treatments start working right away, but it takes one to two weeks before you see results. You will see the final results after four to six weeks.
