Also known as photo-rejuvenation, this non-invasive procedure is perfect for diminishing the signs of aging, correcting vascular imperfections and improving hyperpigmentation.

Using advanced IPL technology Photo Facials have been scientifically proven to improve a number of skin conditions and blemishes including:
Photo Facials harness the energy from intense pulsed light (IPL) also known as Broad Band light, (BBL) to rejuvenate the skin. During a Photo Facial, your laser specialist directs pulses of intense light at a targeted skin imperfection. The pulses of light safely pass through the tissue into the deep layers of skin, heating the targeted area with thermal energy to stimulate a number of therapeutic responses. Photo Facials repair and rejuvenate in several ways:
Intense Pulse Light (IPL) heats skin cells with thermal energy to stimulate the production of collagen. As vital structural protein, collagen is responsible for maintaining taut, firm, wrinkle free skin. The production of new collagen rejuvenates the skin, improving the appearance of fine lines while correcting other blemishes.¹
In addition to heating skin cells to stimulate the production of collagen, Photo Facials can focus IPL energy on accumulations of melanin that cause hyper-pigmentation. Examples of hyperpigmentation include freckles and brown spots. During the treatment, the dark pigment in melanin absorbs the light energy from a Photo Facial. The intense thermal energy safely heats the melanin to its fracturing point, breaking it up into smaller pieces. The fragmented melanin is now small enough to be collected and absorbed by the body and the appearance of hyperpigmentation gradually fades.¹
The IPL energy from a Photo Facial can also be focused on damaged or irregular blood vessels below the skin’s surface that cause vascular lesions, such as unsightly facial veins, rosacea, port wine stains and other forms of redness. The hemoglobin found in the blood absorbs the light from the Photo Facial. Thermal energy from the IPL then raises the temperature of the blood vessel causing it to clot. This cuts off the lesions blood supply, leading to the vessels destruction and replacement with new, healthy tissue.²
Clinical research reveals that Photo Facials can combat active acne in two important ways: Thermal energy from the IPL Photo Facial constricts the blood supply of sebaceous glands, reducing the overproduction of sebum (the skin’s oil that can contribute to break outs.) Secondly, the light energy from a Photo Facial destroys acne-causing bacteria that build up on the skin’s surface, which can also contribute to break outs.³

Many patients begin to see results after one treatment; however, most patients require 3 to 5 Photofacial treatments, typically spaced one month a part to achieve their desired outcomes. As with any medical treatment, results may vary. The exact number of treatments needed depends on the specific skin condition and the individual needs of the patient.*
IPL Photo-Rejuvenation is an FDA cleared, non-invasive treatment that is scientifically proven safe and effective. Photofacial side effects are rare and typically no downtime is required, however, you may experience mild swelling or redness, which typically dissipates within hours after your treatment.* Patients can apply makeup immediately after their Photofacial. It is normal for veins to appear slighter redder for 2 to 3 days following treatment and brown spots or freckles may appear slightly darker for up to a week following treatment.
During your complimentary consultation, your laser specialist will discuss Photofacial side effects in detail and answer any questions you may have regarding Photofacial risks.*
