IPL – LimeLight
IPL – LimeLight
In Southern California, the constant exposure to the sun produces severe skin damage. As we get older, some of that damage is manifested by irregular or blotchy pigmented spots, called solar lentigenes, which can occur on the face, arms, hands, shoulders, and chest. These spots detract from beauty as they interfere with the clarity of skin color.
IPL/Photofacial is an ideal treatment for skin care concerns ranging from redness, light acne scars and rosacea to broken capillaries and hyper pigmentation. IPL/Photofacial involves a non-ablative laser that has been carefully calibrated to seek out specific pigments in the skin redness, darker discolored patches or dark spots from acne scarring. The actual IPL/Photofacial procedure feels like a rubber band snapping against the skin’s surface. With each snap, the IPL/Photofacial penetrates deep below the skin’s surface to treat the issues at the source. For successful elimination of redness, sun spots and old acne scars, a patient will likely require multiple IPL/Photofacial treatments.
The IPL/Photofacial can truly create a marked difference in the patient’s skin over time, since the skin continues to improve for weeks after the actual treatment.
Immediately following an IPL/Photofacial, a patient is free to resume his or her daily activities. Each IPL/Photofacial treatment is conveniently quick and takes only about fifteen to twenty minutes from start to finish. For this reason, many patients seamlessly integrate their IPL/Photofacial into their lives by getting treatments during their lunch hour. A brief period of facial redness is the most common side effect of the IPL/Photofacial, although this can easily be covered up with liquid foundation, powder or a concealer until the redness subsides.
