What is Photofacial/IPL therapy?

IPL or intense pulsed light therapy is a procedure designed to treat hyperpigmentation and reinvigorate your skin. Hyperpigmentation spots are darker areas on your skin that can occur in any place, and range in size and shape. This condition might also include issues like acne scars and age spots. During this treatment, Dr. Gaiser will use the Harmony XL PRO laser from Alma to help diminish any hyperpigmentation on your skin and bring life into your skin. During this procedure, IPL is passed over the skin and soaked up by your hyperpigmented spots. This damages them, causing them to break up, leaving the rest of your tissues undamaged.

What should I expect after my IPL treatment?

After your treatment, you should be able to resume normal daily activities almost immediately. However, you may experience side effects for up to a week. Side effects may include redness, bruising, crusting around your treatment areas, and brown spots where your hyperpigmentation was. It may take multiple weeks and several treatments before you reach your optimal results. Final results should last around one year, but you can get maintenance treatments to keep your results fresher longer.
