While photofacials aren’t typically considered an anti-aging solution, they do help in reducing signs of aging such as wrinkles, fine lines, and sunspots. IPL also has the ability to stimulate collagen growth and improves the over all texture of the skin.
Additionally, do Photofacials make you look younger?
So, as you get older, signs of age, like wrinkles and sunspots, are more prominent on your face than the rest of your body. With IPL photofacial technology, however, your face can look decades younger with one simple treatment.
Just so, does IPL help with anti-aging?
The present study showed that IPL can be effective in treating the signs of periorbital skin aging and more than 50% of our patients had favourable (moderate and considerable) improvement.
How much does a Photofacial machine cost?
The lowest cost for the used IPL photofacial machine can be about $3000; the newest equipment can be up to $60k.
Side Effects of IPL
- Brown spots.
When it comes to getting major results with minor downtime, the IPL photofacial has a lot to offer. This light-based treatment is one of the most powerful ways to even skin pigmentation and reduce redness, dark spots, and discoloration.
We typically recommend three to six sessions, but improvements can be seen after the first treatment. Additional sessions may be needed to address larger or darker spots.
Is IPL photofacial safe? Yes, IPL photofacial is safe for many different skin types. Like any cosmetic procedure, there are some risks that we will discuss prior to treatment. Some patients may experience swelling, blistering, redness, scarring, or changes in skin pigmentation.
A photo facial (or fotofacial) is simply a particular type of IPL treatment. A conventional IPL treatment has a single target for improvement, e.g. pigmentation. A fotofacial, in contrast, treats a wide range of conditions including age spots, redness, spider veins, and wrinkles.
With your first and subsequent IPL treatments, improvement is most noticeable starting about a week after each session. You’ll see the greatest results after 3 to 6 months if you do a series of IPL treatments spaced out about a month apart for each session.
A HydraFacial is a patented skin treatment available in medical spas and dermatology offices. It’s also sometimes called “hydradermabrasion” because it involves microdermabrasion-like exfoliation paired with hydrating serums.
