Restore Your Youthful Appearance with IPL Photofacial Skin Rejuvenation
IPL photofacial involves the use of a very high-powered short-pulsed, multi wavelength light source, which helps with skin rejuvenation by lightening pigmented areas, alleviating facial redness, and shrinking dilated blood vessels. The IPL photofacial laser facial treatment helps with cosmetic conditions that occur as a result of the natural aging process, sunlight exposure or sun damage, rosacea, and other environmental effects.
What’s Involved in Skin Rejuvenation Using IPL Photofacial?
IPL photofacial is performed by our trained laser facial treatment nurses and involve a series of treatments scheduled every 3-4 weeks. The skin rejuvenation procedure itself lasts from 20 minutes up to 1 hour depending on the extent of the areas treated at each session.
After the IPL photofacial procedure, the area appears pink in a uniform or blotchy manner and patients may experience a mild to moderate “sunburn” feeling lasting from 2 to 24 hours. Cool compresses may be applied after laser facial treatment. Makeup may be worn after the IPL photofacial procedure in order to lessen the pinkness. Brown spots will darken and become flaky before exfoliation and ultimate rejuvenation of the skin’s appearance; this can be covered using light makeup. Redness and broken capillaries resulting from laser facial treatment may darken initially then fade over 1-2 weeks. Although patients may notice a significant improvement after one IPL photofacial skin rejuvenation treatment, most note a gradual improvement over the weeks during which treatment sessions are scheduled.
Capitol Vein and Laser Center uses the Palomar Pulsed Light System for IPL photofacial treatment because it offers the most versatile, effective, and comfortable aesthetic skin rejuvenation treatment available. This system safely treats the face, neck, chest and hands.
