Pigmented areas and redness selectively absorb the intense pulsated light delivered through the IPL hand piece resulting in a noticeable cosmetic improvement without peeling or burning. After an IPL Fotofacial™, the skin process will leave the skin with a clearer, glowing, youthful appearance – making this one our most popular procedures by volume.
A Fotofacial™ is a non-invasive, FDA approved skincare treatment that uses a laser-light based technology to effectively treat a variety of indications including redness, sun-damage, pigmentation, age spots, fine lines, and large pores.
FotoFacials™ use the latest technology in skin resurfacing and skin rejuvenation. A Fotofacial™ works by safely emitting an intense pulsed light, also known as an IPL Fotofacial™, over specific targeted areas of the skin. The short, pulsating blasts focuses a high energy light that traves below the surface of the skin. The energy traveling through the dermis helps stimulate your skin’s natural collagen production and can even destroy melanin that causes age spots as well as uneven skin tone.
An IPL Fotofacial™ has many benefits and can be used to treat redness caused by acne, rosacea, hyperpigmentation, and facial veins as well as the fine lines and wrinkles caused by aging or sun damage. If your skin has been discolored as a result of smoking, alcohol use, or hormonal changes, an IPL Fotofacial™ can smooth and refine your complexion.
The effect of an IPL Fotofacial™ will largely depend on you and how you maintain your skin using proper medical grade skincare. We normally recommend 3-4 treatments to get a long lasting and very visible change.
