Improve hyperpigmentation, sun damage, rosacea and more with our photofacial/fotofacial skin rejuvenation treatments using intense pulsed light (IPL) in Bryn Mawr and the Philadelphia areas. Our in-house aestheticians administer IPL using a device that delivers carefully targeted pulses of light energy to treat specific issues while boosting the overall condition of the skin.
IPL treatment sessions are both targeted and comprehensive, as the device delivers a broad spectrum of radiofrequency pulses that can be adjusted to treat particular skin conditions, including pigmented age spots, freckles, sun spots, and blemishes. Additionally, the symptoms of rosacea, such as redness/blotchiness, acne, uneven skin tone and texture can be improved.
The most popular areas for treatment tend to be the face, neck, chest, and hands, which are those that are most frequently exposed to sunlight and other harsh environmental factors.
IPL is a broad spectrum of intense pulsed light. Our patients often say that the device creates a warm sensation and sometimes feels like an dull snapping on their skin. More sensitive areas may be numbed with a topical anesthetic for the patient’s comfort.
After your treatment session, you will receive aftercare instructions that you will have to follow to ensure you achieve the best results.
Avoiding exposing the treated skin to sunlight a few days to a few weeks after your visit are a best practice.
The duration of each treatment session will vary depending on the size of the area to be treated and the specific settings used for each patient. The total number of treatment sessions depends on the patient’s goals for aesthetic improvement. Our aestheticians will help make an individualized plan for your skin.
