Say goodbye to red and brown discoloration.
Come into the light with IPL. Intense pulse light is a non-surgical quick and effective treatment for anyone concerned with uneven complexion but not wanting to experience any down time. Nearly 100% of all people have one or more pigmented lesion. Some caused by sun exposure, others by aging. Regardless of the cause, most pigmented lesions are spots on the skin with higher concentrations of melanin.
AFT is a non-invasive pulsed light energy absorbed by the target areas without damaging the healthy skin. It specifically targets pigments, the melanin in the brown sun spots and the hemoglobin in the redness of flushing and broken capillaries. IPL is an effective non-surgical treatment for common cosmetic concerns. It can be a quick 20-minute treatment time making it easy to fit into your busy day.
IPL Treatment FAQ's
Q: What is IPL?
A. Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) Photo Facial is a cosmetic procedure which can improve the appearance of skin damage using high intensity light. IPL may be used on the face, neck, décolleté, chest and hands. It is effective in the treatment of fine lines and wrinkles, enlarged pores, rosacea and reddish discoloration, brown pigmentation disorders, and dull complexions. There is no downtime and the result is a rejuvenated, more youthful appearance.
Q: How does IPL work?
A. IPL Photofacial is applied via a series of gentle light pulses over the treatment area. As the light penetrates the skin it is absorbed by small surface blood vessels or pigmentation. The heat generated by the absorbed energy causes damage to the vessels or pigmented areas stimulating the body's own natural healing process. Pigmented lesions will typically darken and harden before they flake off or are absorbed by the body.
Q: What is the difference between Laser and IPL?
A. Treatments with laser and intense pulse light both work in the same way, choosing wavelengths that are absorbed by the target. A laser uses light with one specific wavelength and intense pulsed light uses a band of wavelengths.
