IPL PhotoFacialTM

If you spend a lot of time outdoors, which many in the valley do, your skin and appearance can be dramatically affected. Common signs of sun damage include rough dull texture, fine lines and wrinkles, brown spots and patches, visible blood vessels, and diffuse skin redness. An M22 IPL photofacial can address all of these issues. 

The Lumenis M22 IPL works by penetrating the dermis layer of the skin to create heat. The heat creates small controlled wounds called micro-injuries. When the wound heals, the body removes damaged blood vessels and old skin cells, replacing them with healthier, more desirable cells. As the skin heals itself, it also produces collagen and elastin, promoting skin tone and texture. However, these are minor and part of the healing process. The tiny injuries that are created by the procedure will quickly close up, causing no lasting damage to the tissue. The final result will be new, radiant skin that has reversed the hands of time.

Treatment

What is IPL Photofacial?

IPL Photofacial is a skin laser resurfacing treatment that treats skin aging and other skin conditions, including sun damage, brown spots and rosacea. It transforms your dull, pigmented, and aged skin into an even-toned, bright and radiant complexion. Plus, it stimulates the production of collagen within the skin, giving it a smooth and firm texture.

What to Expect After the IPL Photofacial?

Following your treatment, it’s normal to notice skin flushing for up to 24 hours. Also, swelling is common, especially if you have sensitive skin. You may also notice that some areas of the skin darken and feel dry, but it will return to its natural state in less than a week.
