An IPL® photofacial involves using intense pulsed light to erase skin defects. Patients in Jupiter, West Palm Beach, and Palm Beach County can undergo this treatment at Supriya Aesthetic Dermatology.
Lasers can successfully resurface the skin while also helping tighten and tone it. An IPL® photofacial is one laser treatment that has been proven to be very safe and effective at doing so.
What is an IPL® photofacial?
An IPL® photofacial is an outpatient procedure that is performed with the use of an Intense Pulsed Light laser. A special wand is used to deliver light beams to precisely the right area of the face or body. These light beams work to erase imperfections, while also tightening the connective bands that are in deep tissue layers. Each session takes around 30 minutes to complete.
What conditions can be treated with an IPL® photofacial?
- Sun spots and sun damage
- Redness in the facial area
- Enlarged pores
- Broken capillaries
What does the skin normally look like afterward?
Right after an IPL® photofacial, the skin may be slightly red and swollen. There can also be blisters on the skin, but these normally go away within a few days.
How many treatments are typically necessary?
Up to four treatments could be needed depending on the condition of the skin. These are usually scheduled approximately four weeks apart.
How long does it take for results to become noticeable?
Some improvement can typically be seen in two to three weeks, but it could take until the end of a treatment program before the desired results are achieved.
Do any precautions need to be taken during the recovery period?
Patients may be more prone to sunburns than before. As a result, wearing sunscreen when outdoors is especially important. Individuals should also contact a physician if any usual swelling occurs since this could be a sign of an infection.
How long will the results last?
No exact results can be guaranteed; however, many people are able to enjoy the benefits of their IPL® photofacial for about two years.
Who should not undergo an IPL® photofacial?
- Dark-skinned individuals
- Those who scar easily
- Patients with Lupus
- Pregnant or nursing mothers
An IPL® photofacial allows people to notice improved skin tone and texture over a period of time. This is good news for those who want to look more polished yet do not want others to notice they have had a procedure performed.
