As the population ages, ever-increasing numbers of people are interested in improving their appearance. Daily exposure to the sun produces severe skin damage. It is very common as we age to notice red blood vessels and irregular areas of hyperpigmentation appearing on facial and non-facial skin exposed to sunlight as we get older, some of that damage can be manifested by irregular or blotchy pigmentation spots, called solar lentigo and melasma. These can occur on our face, arms, hands, shoulders, and chest. These spots detract from our natural beauty as they interfere with the clarity of our skin and color.

IPL photo-facial treatments improves the appearance of photo-aged skin, removes age spots (sun-induced freckles), most benign brown pigments, and redness caused by broken capillaries through a process called photo-rejuvenation for face and body. The IPL photo-facial process is ideal for patients with active lifestyles because the procedure requires no downtime and has a low risk of side effects. Any treatment side effects from IPL clear up so quickly that many patients schedule their IPL treatments during their lunch break and return to work immediately after, just adding a bit of foundation to mask the redness until it fades on its own.

The light passes harmlessly through the skin and is absorbed by spots and lesions. The abnormal cells are destroyed, leaving only healthy tissue. IPL additionally stimulates the growth of collagen and can decreases pore size for a more youthful appearance.
