What Can IPL Photofacial Do for Me?
The intense pulsed light (or IPL) photofacial is a particularly impressive procedure, using advanced technology to break up areas of hyperpigmentation and treat other related issues with the skin.
You’re likely a great candidate for IPL photofacial if you’ve been dealing with any of the following issues and live in New Hartford, NY:
- Age spots
- Sun damage
- Spider veins
- Acne scars
What’s the IPL Photofacial Like?
At Alivana, you’ll work with a member of our highly experienced skincare team to undergo your IPL photofacial treatment, which typically lasts between 30 and 90 minutes. We’ll start with a topical anesthetic ointment to help you feel as comfortable as possible, before setting the IPL device to the appropriate level and applying it to the treatment area.
The IPL device itself will pulse light into your skin. This light is set to a specific wavelength, and the machine will be set to deliver it to a specific depth into your skin, where it will interact with unwanted pigments, breaking them up and allowing your body to absorb and remove them.
After your treatment, we’ll apply a comforting moisturizer with sun-blocking abilities, to make sure your skin stays protected. If there’s any swelling present, we might apply a cold compress for a few minutes. We typically recommend three to six treatments, spaced three weeks apart.
