IPL: Photofacial Therapy to Improve Your Skin

  • Topic Info:IPL Photofacial involves a non-ablative laser that has been carefully calibrated to seek out specific pigments in the skin. 

    IPL is an ideal treatment for skin care concerns ranging from redness, rosacea, broken capillaries, hyper-pigmentation, and acne. The procedure can even stimulate collagen. Your skin also continues to improve for weeks after the treatment, creating remarkable results. 

    The procedure penetrates deep below the skin's surface to treat issues at the source. Several days later the targeted pigmentation rises and flakes off the skin.

    Can IPL be too good to be true? 

    Director of esthetics at The Geldner Center in Chicago, Deanna Stellato, explains the latest advancement in the IPL light therapy, as well as which areas can be treated and effectiveness. She also consults on how many treatments you will need, cost and potential side effects.
