IPL Photofacial

The intense pulsed light (IPL) Photofacial was designed to combat the effects of aging and sun damaged skin in a softer, gentler way. The redness and flushing of rosacea can be reduced 80 to 90 percent after several treatments. IPL Photofacial treatments can be used to treat sun damaged, brown “age spots” or red skin anywhere on the body.

If you would like to learn more about Photofacials, request a consultation online, or call South Bay Plastic Surgeons at (310) 784-0644 and one of our helpful staff members will schedule your appointment.

About IPL

Using the advanced IPL system, our laser nurse specialists will gently deliver a precise amount of light energy through your skin. Treatments are spaced out at 3-week intervals. The energy is delivered at specific settings for each treatment to maximize your results.

The light energy stimulates the production of collagen. As the new collagen forms, it softens the appearance of aging skin. Fine lines and wrinkles are decreased. Brown “age spots” diminish or disappear, and the redness associated with rosacea can be dramatically reduced.

The IPL photorejuvenation program generally consists of 4 to 6 treatment sessions at 3-week intervals. Similar to many spa services like our BOTOX® Cosmetic and dermal filler treatments, a typical session lasts about 20 minutes so you can actually schedule an appointment during the lunch hour. A major advantage of IPL technology is its broad, adjustable spectrum of light. This unique feature allows your doctor to customize treatment according to your specific condition and skin type, producing a more pleasing and natural-looking result than can be achieved with laser systems.

Prior to treatment, a cool gel is applied to the skin, and you may be given dark glasses to protect your eyes from the bright light. The smooth glass surface of the IPL handpiece is then used to administer pulses of light to your face. You may a feel a slight sting, like the snap of a rubber band. However, local anesthesia or pain medication is seldom required. It’s quick, easy and virtually painless.

Plan Your Treatment

Another reason why IPL photorejuvenation is so successful is that it is a true “multi-tasker.” It improves redness and broken blood vessels, erases age spots and areas of skin discoloration, as well as reaches down to the level of collagen to enhance your skin tone and texture. More effective than creams and medications, IPL also offers relief from the symptoms of rosacea, including flushing. Furthermore, results are excellent on other sensitive body areas, like the back of your hands, chest and neck. This versatility sets IPL photorejuvenation apart from any other treatment approach.
