Intense Pulsed Light (IPL™) technology is a treatment breakthrough that can correct a variety of benign skin conditions, such as: facial skin imperfections, the signs of photo-aging, birthmarks, unwanted hair, unsightly small veins, sun-induced freckles, lentigo’s, broken capillaries, and other blemishes. This original “fotofacial” offers a safe, non-invasive solution that can be tailored to your individual condition and skin type, providing superior cosmetic results and outstanding satisfaction, through a new process called photo-rejuvenation.
A cold gel is usually applied to the area to be treated, and the smooth glass surface of the IPL™ hand piece is gently applied to your skin and pulses of light are applied. You may feel a slight sting, like the snapping of a small rubber band. Treatment is generally administered in a series of 4 to 6 sessions that provide excellent long-term results, minimal adverse effects and high satisfaction. Each treatment takes about 20 minutes.
IPL™ technology helps create smoother-looking skin. After a series of treatments (typically three), you can see a significant reduction of unwanted pigmentation. The same treatment can be used effectively on the neck, chest, arms, and hands. IPL™ therapy can also eliminate damaged veins and capillaries by removing virtually all traces of these unsightly vascular lesions. For both women and men, IPL™ can successfully treat dilated blood vessels without injuring the surrounding healthy skin.
