IPL Photofacial Treatment / Blood Vessel Treatment

Photo rejuvenation combats the effects of sun and aging in a softer and gentler way. Using our Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) system, we use light energy to target facial capillaries and sun spots, providing a beautiful, clear complexion. A series of photofacial treatments are given at 2-4 week intervals for optimal improvement.

IPL photofacial treatment, also known as blood vessel treatment, is the leading treatment in addressing a number of skin care concerns, specifically unwanted blood vessels. In addition to delivering smooth and even skin texture, a photofacial treatment can also remedy skin discoloration, facial scars, acne scars and superficial fine lines and wrinkles. We often recommend this treatment to our clients who have a number of concerns and are in need of a comprehensive treatment that can address all of these areas simultaneously. Combined with microderm and glycolic peels clear pigment spots even more quickly.

IPL photofacial treatment can help you remedy various skin care problems along with delivering facial rejuvenation results, making your skin look younger and less wrinkled. It is the perfect treatment to remedy the following:

  • Melasma
  • Rosacea
  • Skin discoloration due to sun damage
  • Uneven skin texture
  • Irregular facial redness
  • Brown spots
  • Age spots
  • Dark circles under the eyes
  • Freckles on the hands, chest and face
  • Broken capillaries around the face and the nose


Who is a Candidate for IPL Photofacial Treatment / Blood Vessel Treatment?
Healthy men and women are the best candidates for IPL photofacial treatment or blood vessel treatment. Your photofacial treatment generally begins with applying a layer of ultrasound gel to the treatment area. The hand piece is then applied to the skin.

The IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) hand piece delivers a broad spectrum of light to the skin. The light is absorbed by the blood and melanin in the skin. In response to this, the body’s natural healing process is triggered, which then heals itself, thereby removing all of the damaged tissue, skin discolorations and irregularities.

IPL technology can be adjusted to deliver a variety of wavelengths, which allows us to optimize the treatment according to each patient’s unique needs. For best results, treatments are completed within 4 to 6 sessions, and occasional maintenance treatments, especially for patients with melasma and rosacea.

What is the Recovery like for IPL Photofacial Treatment / Blood Vessel Treatment?
Recovery from IPL photofacial treatment requires no downtime. In general, your skin will feel like you have been sunburned for a few days. Some patients may experience mild swelling, depending on how aggressive their treatment is. You may return to regular activities right away. The dark spots will harden and flake off within a few days.

IPL treatments on the hands and chest may last a little longer. But you should have a clean, even complexion within a week or so. The most important part of the aftercare process is to protect the skin from sun damage while it is healing and thereafter. We will recommend the best soothing moisturizes that will help with the healing process.

*Prices vary depending on areas treated. Packages available with microderm and peels.
