Intense pulsed light (IPL) therapy, also known as photofacial, is a treatment to improve the color and texture of your skin without surgery. It can decrease some of the visible damage caused by sun exposure including brown spots, broken capillaries, rosacea and cherry hemangioma.
A Photo Facial is a skin treatment that uses light-based technology. Photo
facials (sometimes called foto facials) have a number of different uses, but are mostly used for treating brown spots, broken capillaries, and boosting collagen in your face.
IPL Photofacial is Intense Pulsed Light that emits multiple wavelengths into the skin and effectively targets pigment producing cells below the surface of the skin. The light energy is converted to heat energy and destroys the hyperactive melanin producing cells in the layers of your skin, eventually dispersing pigmented areas. The spots are pulled to the surface, eventually turning into a coffee-ground-like texture that eventually flakes off revealing beautiful, radiant skin beneath.
