IPL Photofacial is a way to improve the colour and texture of your skin without surgery. It can undo some of the visible damage caused by sun exposure — called photo-aging. You may notice it mostly on your face, neck, hands, or chest.
what is IPL?
Intense Pulsed Light therapy, commonly known as IPL, is used to perform skin treatments for aesthetic and therapeutic purposes. During the treatment, a handheld device is passed across the skin’s surface delivering pulses of broad-spectrum light to the deep layers of the skin.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
IPL releases light of many different wavelengths, like a photo flash. Pigment cells in your skin absorb the light energy, which is converted into heat. The heat destroys the unwanted pigment to clear up freckles and other spots. IPL penetrates down to the second layer of your skin (dermis) without harming the top layer (epidermis), so it causes less damage to your skin.
Varies depending on treatment areas.
