Causes collagen and blood vessels below the epidermis to constrict, reducing redness and age lines
An IPL (Intense Pulse Light) also known as photofacial is a procedure in which intense pulses of light are used to penetrate deep into the skin.
IPL photorejuvenation then causes collagen and blood vessels below the epidermis to constrict, reducing redness and age lines. IPL targets red and brown pigments under the skin making this procedure ideal to treat small visible blood vessels and hyperpigmentation from sun damage. The procedure involves only minimal discomfort, while the redness and swelling that sometimes occur after treatment disappear shortly. Most benefits of a photofacial occur gradually in the weeks following treatment.
