Removal of Sun Spots and Age Spots
IPL Photofacial (aka Photorejuvetation) is an innovative way to quickly, safely and comfortably remove sun spots and age spots from your face, chest, arms, and hands, without gel or topical anesthetics. The signs of sun damage will flake off after one or two treatments, leaving clear, younger looking skin.
The IPL Photofacial difference:
Comfort. Our laser systems use a pulsed light system that is exceptionally effective for treating pigment at a much more comfortable energy level. There is no need to apply topical anesthetic or gel beforehand, and you can realize superior results in just one or two treatments. The IPL Photofacial procedure is the next generation in pulsed light treatments.
What areas can be treated?
Virtually any part of your body with sun and age spots or freckles can be safely treated. The face, chest, shoulders and arms are the most popular areas for treatment because they have typically had the most sun exposure. Both discrete spots and skin densely covered with freckles respond well to treatment.
What does the treatment do?
The visible light delivered by IPL Photofacial is selectively absorbed by the pigmented spots on your skin. It’s the heating of the pigmented cells that causes the therapeutic effect.
What do the treatments feel like?
When the handpiece is placed on your skin, it will feel cool and comfortable. When the pulse of the light is delivered, you may feel a mild, brief pinching sensation.
How many treatments will I need?
Typically, one or two treatments are sufficient to see dramatic results. Additional treatments may be required for very large or dark spots or for densely covered areas.
What happens after the treatment?
Immediately following the treatment, the spots may start to darken. You may notice a slight reddening of the surrounding skin. This typically subsides in a couple of hours. Over the course of the next one to three weeks, darkened spots will fade and flake off. Our professional staff will consult with you for complete information on the benefits and risks of treatment.
Will the spots reappear over time?
No. New spots may appear. These too can be removed. Remember to liberally apply sunscreen when outdoors to minimize sun damage and the appearance of new spots.
When will I see results?
Most patients find the majority of their treated spots have shown significant improvement within two to three weeks of treatment. However, your final result may not be apparent for a month or more.
