IPL Photo Facial
Say goodbye to the effects of sun damage, rosacea, hyperpigmentation, and more. With the innovative Intense Pulsed Light (IPL™) photofacial procedure, gentle skin rejuvenation is now easier than ever. IPL™ photofacial rejuvenation is the latest in modern dermatology, allowing patients to transform splotchy, discolored skin into a radiant complexion. If you suffer from any of these problems, photofacial treatments may be the dermatological approach you’ve been looking for.
How does the IPL Photofacial work:
The light penetrates the skin at a range of wavelengths that targets red and brown spots, resulting in a more even skin tone. IPL also brightens the skin. Depending on the severity of the symptoms, results can be seen in three to six treatments.
The technology uses a high-powered, hand-held, computer-controlled flashgun to deliver an intense, visible, broad-spectrum pulse of light, generally in the visible spectral range of 400 to 1200 nm. Various cutoff filters are commonly used to selectively filter out lower wavelengths, especially potentially damaging ultra violet light. The resulting light has a spectral range that targets specific structures and chromophores (e.g. melanin in hair, or oxyhemoglobin in blood vessels) that are heated to destruction and reabsorbed by the body. IPL shares some similarities with laser treatments, in that they both use light to heat and destroy their targets. But unlike lasers that use a single wavelength (color) of light which typically matches only one chromophore, and hence only one condition, IPL uses a broad spectrum that when used with filters, allows it to be used against several conditions. This can be achieved when the IPL technician selects the appropriate filter that matches a specific chromophore.
