An IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) treatment is also called a “photofacial.” IPL improves the appearance of photoaged skin, removing or greatly diminishing the appearance of most sun and age spots (sun-induced freckles), and redness caused by rosacea and broken capillaries, through a process called photorejuvenation . It can be used on any area and is most commonly performed on the face, chest and hands. It is an ideal treatment for patients who have mild to moderate sun-damaged skin and who require no or little downtime post-procedure. Most clients achieve excellent results in 3-6 treatments spaced 4 weeks apart.
