What is IPL Photofacial?

IPL Acne treatments provide a non-invasive therapy that leads to healthier looking skin by targeting pigmentation, excessive redness, broken blood vessels, and reducing pore size. IPL therapy can be used on any area of the body to minimize the signs of sun damage.

Who Can Benefit from IPL Photofacial?

The IPL Photofacial Treatment is able to treat a range of skin concerns. It can improve the appearance of brown and red spots, freckles, redness, sun damage, rosacea, and pigment imperfections. This treatment is best for patients with fair skin. At MDSkin, you will start with a consultation to determine if IPL is the best laser treatment for you.

How Does IPL Acne Photofacial?

IPL Photofacial works by emitting multiple wavelengths into the skin that effectively target cells that produce pigment. This light energy is converted into heat energy to reach the hyperactive melanin-producing cells in the skin, which eventually disperses the pigmented area.  Pigmented spots are pulled to the surface of the skin and eventually flake off. IPL sessions are spaced approximately 4-6 weeks apart. During your consultation, an MDSkin specialist will recommend the number of treatments necessary based on your needs and concerns.

Why Does MDSkin Offer IPL Photofacial Treatement?

MDSkin strives to offer patients quality, effective care that can help with many concerns. The IPL treatment achieves this. It can treat a multitude of areas such as the face, neck, chest, legs, hands, and arms. This range of treatment areas allows us to help our patients achieve an overall rejuvenated appearance if they have pigmented areas in multiple spots.

What Can Be Expected After IPL Photofacial Treatment?

When your treatment is completed, the skin will be cleansed and will appear slightly red and puffy.  There is minimal downtime associated with the IPL treatment and patients are able to go about the rest of their daily activities.  Makeup can be worn the following day. Although downtime is brief, it is important to stay out of the direct sun for at least a week and regularly apply sunscreen.
