Intense Pulsed Light (IPL)
What is an IPL PhotoFacial?
The IPL PhotoFacial is a non-ablative procedure that eliminates age spots, sun damage, and redness. Simply, it treats the unwanted “reds” and “browns” that dull the complexion. Reds (like some forms of rosacea, acne scars and spider veins) and browns (like sun damage, sunspots, and acne and other scars) build up over time and create an “aged” appearance. Not only does IPL eliminate exterior conditions, IPL PhotoFacials also heats the skin cells under the surface, increasing collagen production!
IPL PhotoFacial is used to treat the following conditions on the face, hands, and décolletage (chest):
Rosacea Spider veins
Hyperpigmentation (brown spots)
Age & sunspots
Wrinkles Skin texture problems

Rosacea and Spider Veins
Men and women who suffer from rosacea and spider veins on the nose, cheeks and elsewhere on the face can benefit from IPL Skin Rejuvenation Treatment.
Our machine is programmed to target these pockets of visible veins and redness to provide effective rosacea and spider vein treatment.
As the light pulses are absorbed into the hemoglobin pigment, it causes thermal damage to the vessel wall. The damaged blood vessel is then absorbed into the body as part of the natural healing process and the redness which once dulled the complexion is simply gone. Rosacea can be greatly controlled with treatments of IPL PhotoFacials but there are many triggers that can cause this condition of reoccurring.
Spider veins or broken capillaries in the face can be treated with 2-4 IPL PhotoFacials depending on the number and size of the vein.
