What conditions does IPL Fotofacial treat?
Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) treatment, which is also sometimes referred to as Fotofacial treatment, is a versatile light-based skin rejuvenation treatment designed to treat a number of skin pigmentation problems, including:
- Sun damage
- Age spots or sun spots
- Broken capillaries
- Redness or flushing
- Vascular birthmarks (telangiectasias)
Benefits of IPL Fotofacial:
- Enhances your skin’s natural circulation to bring out a youthful, well-nourished glow
- Can be completed in less than 30 minutes, making it easy to schedule after work or even during your lunch break
- Requires no downtime; patients can return to normal activities immediately
PHOTOFACIAL BEFORE & AFTER
What areas of the body can be treated?
IPL Fotofacial can be used on all parts of the body, including the: face, neck, décolleté, arms, hands, legs, abdomen and back.
How will my skin feel after treatment?
Recovering from IPL is similar to recovering from a mild sunburn. Depending on the aggressiveness of your treatment, you may experience varying degrees of redness and swelling following your Fotofacial. With more aggressive treatment, some mild bruising may also occur.
For a few hours following IPL treatment, you may feel a slight burning sensation. As skin heals over the next one to two weeks, your skin may darken and begin peeling or flaking. It is not uncommon for your skin to become itchy during the recovery period, but it is important not to scratch or pick at your skin, as this may cause scarring.
Although complete IPL recovery typically takes one to two weeks, there is no downtime, so you may return to work and normal daily activities immediately after IPL. Be sure to utilize sun protection and avoid sun exposure as much as possible to prevent skin damage immediately following IPL treatment, as well as to maintain your IPL results in the long term.
Most patients achieve optimal results with a series of 3 to 5 treatments.
