Something that most people desire is a fresh looking and clear complexion, that is something that can be difficult to achieve even when a meticulous skin care routine is adhered to. Photofacial with the use of IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) technology is minimally invasive and can assist in minimizing the effects of some of the most common skin issues such as melasma, sun spots, brown spots as well as broken capillaries. It is also ideal when it comes to treating signs of aging such as age spots and/or wrinkles, the recovery time required is minimal and the side effects are few, this is why it has become quite a popular procedure.
There are a few things take into consideration when considering Intense Pulsed Light Photo-rejuvenation; keep in mind however that is is always best to consult your primary care provider before considering any aesthetic procedures, your doctor will advise you on what may or may not be best for you.
– The downtime is minimal and at times none at all.
– The improvements in the quality and texture of the skin are relatively long lasting.

Things to note about IPL photofacials:
