Are you struggling with an uneven facial tone? Acne scars, too much sun, or simply the natural aging process can cause your skin to look tired and worn. Our IPL Photofacial treatment can provide relief from a wide range of skin concerns. This potent procedure heats your skin to improve your tone and reduce surface imperfections associated with aging and sun damage such as redness, veins, and lightly pigmented brown spots. IPL stands for Intense Pulsed Light; our technique takes advantage of the latest in skincare technology by utilizing multiple wavelengths that target cells beneath the surface of your skin. These wavelengths help remove hyperactive melanin-producing cells, resulting in a more uniform facial appearance.
What Does an IPL Photofacial Address?
IPL Photofacials are designed to treat a wide variety of skin conditions. At Horizons Health & Wellness, we address age spots, rosacea, sun damage, and more at our Bridgewater location. When you arrive, we will provide you with a thorough evaluation to determine if this treatment is the best fit for your needs. Even if you have some mild sun damage or an uneven skin texture, our system may help you improve your skin in a way that you’ve never considered before.
Am I a Candidate?
At Horizons Health & Wellness, our team will customize your IPL Photofacial to your skin type and selectively treat the areas of concern. This treatment is best for people seeking to minimize the appearance of brown and red spots, as well as prominent blood vessels on their skin. If you have rosacea, sun damage, or other pigmented lesions, this option may be a great choice.
How Does This Treatment Work?
Treatment time depends on the size and number of areas treated. A typical photofacial takes approximately 30 minutes. There may be momentary discomfort, which is assuaged with a cooling gel that helps relieve it. Following your treatment, brown spots will immediately darken and skin may appear slightly red. Any redness will dissipate within a few hours. Within 1-3 weeks, the darkened spots will flake off and fade, redness or veins will decrease, and skin tone will become much more even.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
One treatment for every decade of life is generally recommended (for example, a 40-year-old would have 4 treatments recommended). However, additional treatments may be recommended for excessively sun-damaged skin. To avoid new brown spots, veins, and to diffuse redness, remember to always apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen every day. IPL Photofacial treatments can be done on the face, neck, chest, and hands.
