IPL Photofacial in Atlanta, GA
Uneven skin color caused by rosacea, hyperpigmentation and sun damage are common problems amongst men and women. IPL photofacials are non-invasive treatments for these and other cosmetic problems. Betsy Horton, MD, of Omega MedSpa offers IPL photofacial for residents in Atlanta, Fayetteville, Peachtree City, Newnan, Eagles Landing, Hampton, LaGrange, and surrounding communities in Georgia.
What is an IPL Photofacial?
IPL, or intense pulsed light, treatments are used by dermatologist and medical professionals in the cosmetic field to address problems that cause uneven skin color. IPL photofacials may work for rosacea, hyperpigmentation, red blotches and other problems that affect the way your skin looks. After the treatment, patients notice a healthier appearance to the skin that lends to a radiant complexion.
Benefits of a IPL Photofacial
Our IPL photofacial treatments take less than one hour, with many taking only 30 minutes. Dr. Horton may recommend IPL treatments to help with:
- Some wrinkles and fine lines
- Sun damage
- Large pores
How Does an IPL Photofacial Work?
A device is used to apply intense light energy into the deeper layers of skin. When the light energy reaches the layer, it constricts blood vessels to reduce redness. The intense light also stimulates collagen to help soften lines and wrinkles.
Am I a Candidate for an IPL Photofacial?
IPL photofacials are considered safe and effective for men and women who are not naturally dark skinned or who have very deep tans. The treatment works best on those who have light skin that is not tanned. The certified laser technician will determine if IPL treatments are the best option during the consultation appointment.
What to Expect from an IPL Photofacial
Dr. Horton has achieved amazing results with IPL photofacial treatments, such as:
- Smaller pore size
- Reduced skin discoloration, either in size or intensity
- Softening some lines and wrinkles
- Enhanced skin texture
- Fewer or less intense rosacea breakouts
A cooling gel is applied to the skin, and your aesthetician uses a special handpiece to administer short bursts of intense light energy. The device is moved around the treatment area. You may feel a slight pinch followed by a warming sensation each time the intense pulsed light is administered. Your IPL photofacial may take 15 to 60 minutes.
How Long is the Recovery After an IPL Photofacial?
IPL treatments do not require recovery periods. Your skin problems will gradually fade in the weeks after the treatment. You may need a follow-up treatment to achieve the best results.
