Are Red or Brown Sun Spots Ruining Your Overall Complexion?
IPL/Photofacial -Red and Brown Spot Reduction
Photofacial is a unique procedure that’s designed to minimize the appearance of sun damage and aging. IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) therapy uses short bursts of light energy to target and break down pigmented lesions (brown spots), vessels, and diffuse redness. IPL can also be used to clear acne breakouts by targeting the bacteria on the surface of the skin in conjunction with deep heating to calm down overactive sebaceous glands. This non-invasive procedure produces exceptional results with minimal pain, side effects or downtime. Patients can achieve a smoother, blemish-free appearance with IPL/Photofacial.

How Long Does a Typical Treatment Take?
IPL treatments are typically quick and easy. Depending on the severity of your condition and the size of the treatment area you can expect your treatment to take anywhere from 20-30 minutes. For patients with sensitive skin, we may apply a topical anesthetic 30-minutes prior to treatment. In most cases, you can expect to be in and out of the office within the hour.
What Results Will I See?*
Results from IPL/Photofacial are gradual and progressive. After your first treatment, pigmented lesions will initially darken in about 24-hours before significantly fading over the course of 1-2 weeks. While noticeable results can be seen with just one treatment, you may need a series of treatments to achieve an optimal outcome. Some patients get the results they want with 3-treatments and others might require up to 6-sessions for more severe concerns.

Is There Any Downtime?
IPL/Photofacial procedures make the ideal treatment for patients with busy lifestyles because there is no downtime involved. You’re able to get back to your normal activities right after treatment. You may experience slight redness or swelling (similar to that of a sunburn) which should subside within 1-2 days. Makeup can be worn immediately after IPL treatments.
