As the population ages, ever-increasing numbers of people are interested in improving the appearance of their damaged skin. IPL photofacial, also known as Intense Pulse Light Therapy, or fotofacial, can be used to help restore the skin’s youthful appearance.
IPL technology improves the appearance of:
- photo-aged skin
- age spots (sun-induced freckles)
- benign brown pigments
- redness caused by broken capillaries
The IPL photofacial treatment is ideal for patients with active lifestyles because the procedure requires minimal downtime and has a low risk of side effects. The gentle, non-ablative treatments use broad spectrum light to treat the face, chest, neck, and hands—virtually anywhere that sun damage shows.

How does Intense Pulsed Light Photo Facial work?
A broad spectrum of light is transmitted through a small, smooth, transparent handpiece which is gently placed over the skin. Cut-off filters in the handpiece change the wavelength range allowing it to be optimized for different applications and skin types. The light penetrates the tissue and is absorbed by either the blood when treating vascular lesions or the melanin when treating pigmented lesions and damages them. The body’s natural processes then remove the injured tissue giving the skin a more even and youthful appearance.
