IPL - Intense Pulsed Light
(PhotoDerm, PhotoFacial, FotoFacial, EpiLight)

This procedure is not done with a laser, but instead involves a process called photo-rejuvenation.  It is a safe, non-invasive procedure that uses a broadband of intense light pulses to help correct facial skin imperfections from chronic sun exposure (sun damage).  The dermis is gently heated to stimulate fibroblasts, which generates more collagen.  Existing collagen becomes remodeled so that the skin feels and appears smoother after treatments and the treatments are quick and relatively painless.

The IPL is used to treat a variety of skin conditions, such as sun damage, brown spots, dilated vessels, fine wrinkles, large pores, rough textured skin, rosacea, flushing and ruddiness.

You may need four to six treatments to treat your specific skin condition. Each treatment lasts approximately 20 minutes.  The benefit of IPL is that it treats skin damage without disrupting the skin’s surface, so there is no downtime. Treated skin appears lighter, brighter and more luminous, because more light is reflected from the surface of even, smoother skin.  As with any medical treatment, there could be complications from this procedure, the most common being skin discoloration.  If you are interested in more information regarding this procedure, please call our office to schedule a consultation.
