How It Helps
IPL, aka photofacial, uses light energy to send out wavelengths of pulsating light to treat a range of skin conditions at the same time.
When the skin is heated, your body gets rid of the unwanted cells, and that gets rid of the thing you’re being treated for. After IPL, you may look younger because your skin tone is more even. IPL photofacials treat:
Redness: After one to three treatments, the light therapy can get rid of 50%-75% of broken blood vessels for most people. They could completely go away. If rosacea causes your face to flush, IPL can be a good alternative to laser therapy.
Sun damage: You may see 70% less of the brown spots and redness caused by ultraviolet (UV) rays.
Hair removal: You’ll get the most benefit if you have light skin and dark hair. It may not work at all if you have dark skin or blond hair.
