IPL Photofacial 

This treatment is a safe, non-invasive skin rejuvenation using the technology of Intense Pulsed Light (IPL).  IPL can improve the signs of sun damage, Rosacea and brown spots on the face, hands and body.  It also treats the apprearance of mild acne scars and fine lines around the eyes and mouth.  

The IPL Photofacial handpiece is gently pressed against the skin and intense pulses of light penetrate deep into the skin.  This causes collagen and blood vessels below the epidermis to constrict, reducing redness and age lines.  The procedure involves only minimal discomfort, while the redness and swelling that sometimes occur after treatment disappear shrotly. Most benefits of a IPL Photofacial occur gradually in the weeks following treatment.   

Usually 4-6 sessions lasting about 20 minutes each will provide you with beautiful results.


Before IPL
  • Avoid sun for 4-6 weeks before treatment.  Tan skin cannot be treated with photofacial as you risk burning the skin.  
  • Avoid use of acids (such as: glycolic, salicylic and lactic), retinoids (Retin-A or retinol).
After IPL
  • Avoid excessive heat: For 2 days post-treatment, avoid activities that will heat up your skin, such as strenuous excercies or jacuzzis and saunas.
  • Avoid skin care products that could be irritating such as: glycolic acids, retinoids (Retin-A or retinol), or bleaching creams (hydorquinoine) until your skin is healed.
