An intense pulsed light (IPL) photofacial is a type of cosmetic dermatology that uses light therapy to improve skin tone, getting rid of brown spots, red marks, and visible veins.
The light therapy works by targeting, heating, and destroying the pigmented cells under the skin. The damaged cells rise to the surface of your skin and create a temporary dark lesion that flakes away.
Central Utah Dermatology can perform IPL photofacials to treat the face, hands, neck, and chest.
An IPL photofacial has many benefits. Most importantly, it’s a non-invasive cosmetic treatment that revitalizes your look without surgery or downtime. The team at Central Utah Dermatology uses IPL photofacials to treat many common skin concerns, including:
An IPL photofacial may also reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The heat energy produced by the IPL tool stimulates the production of collagen, which is a structural protein responsible for your skin’s youthful strength and elasticity.
An IPL photofacial is a safe cosmetic treatment that causes very little discomfort. During your treatment at Central Utah Dermatology, your provider places the handheld IPL device on your skin and activates the light energy.
You may feel a snapping sensation as the light hits your skin. If you’re sensitive to pain, the team at Central Utah Dermatology adjusts your cosmetic treatment to minimize discomfort.
IPL photofacials take 15-20 minutes. Your skin may feel warm and tight and appear slightly reddened following your treatment, but these side effects resolve within a few hours and you can cover any redness with makeup.
You can go back to your usual routine after your photofacial.
You may see improvements in your skin within a week or so after your IPL photofacial, with continued improvements over the next several weeks.
The team at Central Utah Dermatology may recommend a series 2-6 IPL photofacial sessions every four weeks, and then touchup treatments as needed.
