What is an IPL Photofacial?

In an IPL Photofacial, Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) is used to treat pigment and vascular irregularities of the face.  This is great for treating sunspots and dilated capillaries.

What technology is used in the IPL Photofacial? How does it work?

Pigment and vascular lesions absorb the light which causes them to heat up and be destroyed.

Who are the best candidates for this treatment?

Fairly complected patients with sunspots and dilated capillaries are the best candidates.

How does this treatment compare to others of the same nature?

There is really no other treatment that does this.  I frequently use IPL Photofacials in combination with other treatments like fractional laser resurfacing, Botox, and fillers.

What does recovery look like?

Sunspots get darker and slough off in 7-10 days.  I advise my patients to have a two-week cushion before any major social event.
