IPL Fotofacial

Do you suffer from skin problems such as having a red complexion, sun spots, blemishes, acne scars, age spots, or wrinkles? If so there is a new treatment called IPL Fotofacial that may be able to help.

IPL Fotofacial has had amazing results with sun spots. Sun spots are virtually the same as age spots and liver spots, it doesn't matter what you name them, they are unattractive and no one likes them. For nearly everyone they start to appear in your late 40's or early 50's, they are collections of melanin that have accumulated in the top layer of your skin.

Sun spots differ in size and can bunch together so that they appear even larger, and in most instances they are joined together with other signs of sun damage that include deep wrinkles, dry rough skin, fine red veins on your cheeks, nose and ears, and paper thin skin. IPL Fotofacial can remove your sun spots.

What is IPL?

IPL,(intense pulsed light), like laser treatments uses an intense light beam for treatment, but IPL uses a broad band of light instead of a narrow band used in laser treatments.

This intense light works of the deeper layers of the skin instead of the superficial layers. By targeting the deeper layers of the skin you can treat things like spider veins, vascular birthmarks, melasma, hair, and wrinkles.

When you go in for an IPL treatment they will apply a cool gel to your skin and give you some eye protection. Each session will last from 20-60 minutes. Each treatment usually runs around $350-$600 in price range.

In most cases you will need four to six sessions of IPL therapy in order to see long term results. With good skin protection these results can last up to a year.

After IPL Fotofacial, you may have some redness after treatment, but this should resolve within hours, and you should be able to go back to all of your normal activities right after treatment.
