Our Intense Pulse Light (IPL Photofacial) utilizes a broad band of light, comprised of different wavelengths to target and treat multiple skin conditions at once. This treatment is highly effective for treating pigment problems as well as texture problems in your skin. Pigment problems such as brown spots from acne and sun-damage in addition to blotchy red spots from broken capillaries or rosacea can be effectively treated. Texture problems such as wrinkles and enlarged pores are targeted and treated. The overall result is smoother skin with improved skin tone and complexion.
Radiofrequency Skin tightening:
Radiofrequency energy will heat deeper layers of the skin to stimulate collagen, as a result the skin is tightened with improvement in wrinkles and enlarged pores. The goal is to achieve smoother, even textured skin for a “photo-finish” appearance,

What happens at my appointment?
After a detailed skin analysis, we will cleanse your skin. A test shot is performed in an area of the skin close to the treatment area. As such, we can select the best energy level and filter for your particular skin concern.
You are required to wear protective eye shields for the duration of your IPL-photofacial treatment. Cooling gel will be applied to your skin. The RF-IPL device is passed over the entire treatment area. Cold air is applied over the skin at the same time to cool and protect the skin. Thus, allowing for a comfortable experience. You may experience a warm tingle, but most patients are quite comfortable and and experience zero discomfort. However if desired, numbing cream is available for you. The treatment will take about 20 minutes.
