IPL  PHOTOFACIALS

What is IPL/Photofacial?

IPL or Intense Pulsed Light treatments effectively target pigment under the skin’s surface to reduce the appearance of discoloration. This treatment works on vascular marks (distended blood vessels often caused by UV exposure), such as spider veins and port wine stains. This treatment utilizes concentrated pulses of light, which instigate a chemical change in the skin cells and/or blood vessels. The light waves an also be employed to help acne and boost collagen production. The Venus Concept IPL uses SmartPulse technology to ensure precise and consistent delivery as well as a real-time cooling system for optimal patient safety and comfort.

What to expect:
 Immediately following your IPL
treatment, you may notice some
darkening of brown spots.
Broken capillaries may be reduced
but are sometimes initially darker or
bruised. Depending on what
condition is being treated, you will 
notice some pinkness. Most brown
spots take from 3-10 days to
completely slough off. It is important
to resist picking, peeling or scrubbing
the darkened areas for at least 2 weeks.
For some, swelling of the treated area,
particularly around the eyes is possible
and considered a normal side effect,
which should resolve in 3-4 days.
 
Before Treatment:
  • Avoid the sun completely or wait 1-2 months after your last sun exposure. Fall, winter and early spring are the best times for IPL treatments.

  • Avoid using Accutane for 12 months prior to treatments.
    A 2 weeks pre-treatment regimen may be required in some cases.
