IPL Photofacial


IPL Photofacial

Intense pulsed light (IPL) Photofacials is a light based treatment used to treat pigmentationage spots, diminishing broken capillaries and more. Photorejuvenation is a choice of many individuals to maintain the skin health and keep it looking young and radiant.

It is a safe, quick and non-invasive lunch time treatment with practically no downtime. Photorejuvenation uses a controlled blast of very intense light of a safe and specific wavelength which stimulates the collagen producing cells for a healthier and plumper skin.

If you have a variety of different goals such as younger looking skin, faded brown spots, fewer facial veins and less rosacea then IPL Photofacials is a good choice for you. The number of IPL Photofacials will depend on the condition being treated and the kind of results you want. Moreover, IPL Photofacials also require regular skin care routine provided to you by your aesthetician.

I had a lot of uneven skin tones and a few noticeable sun spots. After the first treatment a few small spots had already disappeared and smaller ones appeared lighter. The second treatment showed a further reduction in uneven skin tones, and my skin looked younger and fresher. Immediately after the second and third treatment the skin was red in the targeted areas but vanished by the next morning. My sun spots became very dark but almost invisible within 2 weeks. I am pleased with my treatment. Anu is very professional and gentle and was interested in my results weekly. My skin looks beautiful and i will recommend the treatment to all who have uneven skin tones.

IPL stimulates new collagen growth resulting in smoother, more even, healthier skin

IPL Photofacials uses an optimized light device to deliver energy into your skin, targeting pigmented and vascular lesions, which slowly disappear as the body’s natural healing process progresses.

In today’s fast paced lifestyle we want maximum results with minimum visits, and at Laser Genesis we understand. IPL treatments can be combined with microdermabrasion procedure at the same visit to enhance and boost the results.
In cases of severe sun damage we can combine IPL Photofacials with a topical application of a photosensitizing product called Levulan to get rid of actinic keratosis.

Photorejuvenation is an excellent choice for women and men of all ages. Minor skin concerns like Age Spots, unsightly Facial Veins, and Rosacea can be addressed with the use of IPL Photofacials.

At the time of initial consultation we do a digital Skin analysis to see the extent of sun damage and determine if you are a good candidate for IPL. We also like to do a small test patch and wait for 48 hours to see the skins reaction before we proceed to do the entire area.

IPL Photofacial is the choice of treatment to erase sun damage including Face, Neck, Chest, Back, Hands, Arms, Legs, and Feet.

With minimum to practically no downtime you can keep the treatments as discreet as you wish. You will see a dramatic reduction of photo damage and enhancement in collagen.

IPL Photofacials being non-invasive procedures there is practically very little recovery time. Typically, most people experience a mild, sunburn-like sensation, possibly accompanied by some minor swelling immediately following the treatment. This generally lasts from anywhere between a couple of hours to twenty four hours.
Treated pigmented lesions may appear a bit darker initially and would slough off in the next few days revealing a clearer skin.
The other possible side effects may include hypo or hyper pigmentation which is extremely rare but not permanent.

Does it hurt? There is discomfort associated with the treatment. Each pulse of the IPL feels like an elastic band snapping against the skin To make the treatment more comfortable the laser is equipped with a chilling tip that cools the skin prior to treatment.

We recommend a series of 4-6 IPL Photofacials to see significant long term improvement, however, our skin is continually aging thus to maintain the results follow up treatments are required.

Tanning or unprotected sun exposure should be avoided as it causes the breakdown of collagen. Proper home care and a broad spectrum SPF 30 should be applied throughout the year.
