IPL (Intense Pulsed Light)

This type of device was first introduced into the aesthetic market in the mid 1990’s.  Though IPL may look, sound and feel like a laser, it is not classified as a true “laser” IPL is not a true laser because it uses multiple wavelengths of light whereas lasers use only one wavelength of light. Just because it is not a true laser does not mean that it is any less effective or less complicated a treatment.  Multiple wavelengths of light can actually be an advantage when used by an experienced operator.

This treatment can consist of a full face treatment and is often referred to as a fotofacial or the device can be used to treat isolated body areas like the chest and hands.

It may also be used to treat localized areas of brown and red discoloration on the skin including:

  • Age spots
  • Sun spots
  • Freckles
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Broken capillaries (spider veins)
  • Rosecea

Fotofacial treatment is a series of full face intense pulsed light treatments intended to improve the appearance of sun damaged and aged skin as well as reduce facial redness and flushing. This treatment also helps reduce pore size, soften fine lines and remove unwanted brown spots.

Fotofacial treatments result in a more youthful appearance to the skin.
