Intense Pulse Light (IPL)
IPL (Intense Pulse Light), also known as Photofacial, uses intense pulses of light and heat energy that penetrate deep into the skin to stimulate new collagen growth and to promote the shedding of damaged skin cells. This helps to remove the top layer of sun damaged tissue and boost the skin’s regenerative processes, revealing newer, healthier skin.
IPL uses short pulses of high-intensity light to selectively target sun damage, “age spots”, and the blood vessels that create broken capillaries. The skin repairs the damage, leaving you with a more even skin tone.
At Facial Esthetique we use the HARMONY Lite™ system from Alma to treat a wide range of skin issues such as:
- Sun Damage
- Pigmentation Irregularities
- Age Spots/Liver Spots
- Broken Capillaries
A series of treatments are recommended for optimal results with sessions two to four weeks apart. Occasional maintenance treatments may be needed for patients with pigmentation irregularities and/or rosacea.
IPL is an ideal facial rejuvenation treatment for you if you have a number of concerns, and are looking for a comprehensive treatment that can address multiple issues at the same time.
To find out if you are a good candidate, it’s best to schedule a complimentary consultation with one of our highly trained specialists.
