IPL Photo Rejuvenation

IPL Photo Rejuvenation eliminates dark spot, sun burnt skin, acne marks and pigmented spots in a non-invasive, painless and convenient skin treatment.

What is IPL Photo Rejuvenation/ Photo Facial?

Just like IPL Laser Treatment, IPL Photo Rejuvenation is a laser treatment that uses scattered light to target the affected areas of skin, however instead on focusing on hair follicles, it targets pigment issues, such as dark or brown marks, age marks, and red spots.

The light of different wavelengths passes through the upper layer of skin: the epidermis, focusing on the pigmented spots as the light disperses any uneven tone. IPL Photo Rejuvenation can be used on any part of the body including the face, neck, chest, shoulders, back arms and legs. Photo facial is also effective in treating broken or spider facial veins.

What skin conditions can be treated with IPL Photo Rejuvenation?

IPL Photo Rejuvenation can treat aging spots, freckles, sun damage, spider veins, Rosacea (enlarged facial blood vessels) as well as enlarged pores and pigmentation.

How does IPL Photo Rejuvenation work?

IPL Photo facial penetrates into the skin causing the collagen and blood vessels below the epidermis to tighten, reducing redness, age spots, dark spots and sun damage. The pigment imperfections then absorb the light and begin moving up and out of the skin.

Is IPL Photo Rejuvenation painful?

IPL facials are categorized as the non-invasive and painless procedures. The treatment might give you a slight stinging sensation due to the pulsating light but that only happens for a small time.
