An intense pulse light treatment (also known as FotoFacial) effectively improves facial redness, flushing, freckling, Rosacea and irregular pigmentation. FotoFacial can also improve skin texture, reduce pore size and diminish fine lines and wrinkles. This is a non-invasive treatment to improve and rejuvenate the skin surface. The treatment time is approximately 30-45 minutes depending on the area being treated. For best results, a series of 6-8 treatments are usually needed and these treatments are spread 4-6 weeks apart.
A broad spectrum of light is transmitted through a small, smooth, transparent handpiece which is gently placed over the skin. Cut-off filters in the handpiece change the wavelength range allowing it to be optimized for different applications and skin types. The light penetrates the tissue and is absorbed by either the blood when treating vascular lesions or the melanin when treating pigmented lesions damaging them. The body's natural processes then remove the injured tissue giving the skin a more even and youthful appearance.
Sun exposure is not recommended while being treated with the IPL.
