IPL Photofacial – Skin Med Spa


Santa Monica, CA’s Trusted IPL Photofacial Center

Both men and women are learning how effective laser skin treatments can be and are signing up for them at their local med spas. Lasers are used to resurface the skin’s outer layer and reduce the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, and other facial flaws. Ablative laser treatments wound the skin and are most often use to remove one or more layers of the skin. Non-ablative laser treatment typically is used to stimulate collagen production deeper within the dermis in order to tighten the skin’s surface.

Men and women both choose this treatment to treat a variety of conditions including scars, discolorations, age spots, and fine wrinkles. While there is some risk associated with the procedures, most people experience a minimal amount of pain, some minor swelling, and a temporary redness to the skin. In general, patients find that their skin is smoother, the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines is reduced, and their skin tone is more even overall.
