Photo Facial (IPL)
A Photo Facial is an intense pulsed light treatment that effectively treats men and women to remove brown spots and sun damage from your face, chest, arms, hands, and back. Uneven skin tone and signs of sun damage can be reversed in as little as 1-2 treatments, leaving you with youthful, even-toned skin.
What do I need to know before my Photo Facial treatment?
Photo Facial cannot be performed on skin that is tan or burned from sun exposure. Self-tanner should not be used 2 weeks prior to your Photo Facial treatment. Discontinue the use of any topical prescription medications 7 days before treatment. For example, Retin-A, Trilumen, Differin, etc.
How many treatments will I need?
Dramatic results can be achieved in 1-2 treatments. Very large or dark spots, heavily freckled areas, or excessively sun damaged skin may require more treatments.
What should I expect after a Photo Facial Treatment?
At first the spots may darken and the surrounding skin might be a little red which should subside in a couple hours post treatment. The darkened spots will fade and flake off 1 to 3 weeks after treatment, giving way to a clearer complexion.
When will I see the results?
The majority of patients will see a significant improvement 2-3 weeks following treatment as their complexion will look clearer and younger. The final result may take up to a month.
