Photo Facial/Intense Pulsed Light (IPL)

WHAT IS PHOTO FACIAL/INTENSE PULSED LIGHT (IPL)

This exciting technology involves the use of Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) to affect multiple targets within the skin. Multiple flashes of light are controlled through a sophisticated system of filters and electronic technology to treat a variety of conditions, including:

  • Rosacea
  • Vascular disorders (telangiectasia, spider veins)
  • Lentigo (age spots or liver spots)
  • Poikiloderma
  • Acne

The Prolite II® is not a laser – it uses a series of intense flashes of light to increase collagen formation, break-up pigment in the epidermis and remove superficial blood vessels. When used in conjunction with exfoliation treatments such as chemical peels, microdermabrasion or HydraFacials®, leads to even smoother skin, a more even skin tone, less fine wrinkles, and healthier skin.

The remarkable results seen with Photofacial treatment include:

  • Reversal of UV Skin Damage caused by sun exposure
  • Removal of red and brown skin discoloration (especially “age spots” on the face, chest, and hands), resulting in a more even skin tone
  • Removal of fine wrinkles
  • Reduction or removal of fine blood vessels
  • Increased collagen buildup, leading to more supple skin
  • Smoother skin texture, making makeup application much easier and more uniform
