ABOUT IPL PHOTOFACIAL
Also called a “photofacial,” IPL stands for Intense Pulsed Light, which is a type of dermal photorejuvenation administered via a device similar to a laser in order to remove pigment-related skin concerns. Whether you’d like to remove hyper or irregular pigmentation, sun damage, freckles, liver spots, melasma, spider veins, rosacea, or broken capillaries, IPL uses targeted light therapy to heat and break up pigmentation, which is then eliminated through the body’s lymphatic system.
Your body may take a month or more to process the pigment, as the discoloration rises to the surface then flakes off or fades away. This means multiple treatments over a period of months are necessary in order to achieve ideal results. In between treatments, it is imperative that you avoid sun exposure.
IPL is commonly used on the face to rejuvenate the skin, but it can used anywhere where you experience discoloration including the neck, chest, arms and hands. It can also be used as a targeted treatment for smaller areas.
Where can it be used?
