Laser Skin Care Treatments

What is an ipl photofacial?

An HI LIGHT IPL – Photofacial uses a wide spectrum of light to treat many different skin conditions. It can improve pigmentation caused by sun damage, freckles, natural aging and even scarring. It can also help with redness issues such as rosacea, blood vessels and flushing.

How ipl photofacials work ?

Hi-LightPhotofacials use light and heat energy to target particular areas of the skin. Initially, light is introduced to the skin in many wavelengths. As it penetrates the skin, that light is converted to heat. The heat is strong enough to damage specific chromophores (parts of the skin that absorb light). Those chromophores are related to certain skin conditions such as unwanted pigmentation or facial veins, thereby destroying them.

What to expect during your appointment?

We’ll start by removing all makeup and lotions from your skin. If you choose, we may performan exfoliating treatment prior to the IPL treatment. This allows the IPL light to penetrate deeper into the skin. During the treatment, you will still see flashes of light even with goggles covering your eyes. You may also experience a snapping feeling with each light pulse. You can follow up your IPL with an oxygen facial or EpiFusion to achieve even better results. The treatment ends with a light massage and sunscreen application. Depending on the add-ons, the procedure can take between 30-90 minutes.

Length of results

As with most treatments, results are dependent on the patient’s lifestyle, skin type and how many sessions they have already received. Patients usually need a series of 3-5 sessions spaced 4-6 weeks apart for best results. Although it may sound counterintuitive, people with lighter brown spots need more sessions than people with darker spots. After a series is completed, most people come in once or twice a year for maintenance.
