Photo Facial – is the ideal treatment for sun-damaged skin. A photofacial is also called intense pulsed light (IPL). This is different from a laser, which only uses one wavelength of light. Instead, a photofacial uses what’s called broad-spectrum light, which reaches multiple layers of skin. When the light flashes, it warms the skin to stimulate the body’s natural healing process, as well as stimulate the production of collagen. These two factors allow photofacials to address both the outermost surface of the skin as well as the tissues beneath it. This multi-faceted approach makes your skin look younger, smoother and more voluminous. A photofacial is a fast and effective procedure to lighten pigmentation caused by sun exposure and small facial veins from various causes. Photofacial can be used on the face, arms and chest. Imagine your skin before all those hours in the sun. The Palomar IPL Photofacial offers comfortable and effective treatment of sun damage and visible veins. IPL Photofacial treatments break up pigment so the body can more easily remove it through exfoliation. Small capillaries are heated to the point of coagulation and are then absorbed by the natural cleansing system of the body. Generally, 2 to 3 treatments are needed to achieve optimal results.
