IPL Photofacials

What is it?

The state of the art Palomar Starlux 500 laser comprehensively removes sun damaged skin cells, shrinks broken blood vessels and capillaries and stimulates skin to produce new healthy cells! Pulses of  light of varying wave lengths target pigmented skin cells beneath the top layer of skin. We use the latest technology available, the Max G is able to penetrate much deeper and with more power than we have been able to safely accomplish with any other IPL device.

Who should get it?

IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) Photofacials are for adult woman and men who have uneven skin tone, spots, freckles, or who just need to keep the collagen stimulated. IPL is fantastic for those with rosacea, melasma, acne, sun damage, or irregular pigmentation. It has very little downtime so it is an easy way to get the collagen fires burning before you are ready to do more intensive laser treatments. IPL Photofacial can be performed to correct pigmentation irregularities from any part of the face or body, and is extremely effective at removing brown spots caused by sun exposure and eliminates redness from rosacea or broken capillaries. A bonus benefit of this treatment is that it also stimulate collagen production to keep the skins motor fully reved up!

What can I expect?

Patients typically experience a mild “rubber band snapping” sensation during the treatment and can expect a day or two of redness and blotchiness following the procedure.* (Uneven skin tone can be easily covered with mineral powder while awaiting results.)

How Many Treatments Will I Need?

Usually a series of 3-6 treatments are recommended, one every 2 weeks until complete and a protocol of a maintenance treatment every 4 months highly suggested.
