PhotoFacial (IPL) Chicago
What is PhotoFacial (IPL) ?
A non-laser, pulsed light treatment that effectively reduces facial redness and flushing as well as the visible signs of sun damage and aging.
What areas can be treated?
Virtually any part of your body with sun and age spots or freckles can be safely treated. The face, chest, shoulders and arms are the most popular areas for treatment because they typically have the most sun exposure. Both discrete spots and skin densely covered with freckles respond well to PhotoFacial (IPL) .
What do the treatments feel like?
When the handpiece is placed on your skin it will feel cool and comfortable. When the pulse of light is delivered, you may feel a mild brief pinching sensation
How many treatments will I need?
Typically, one or two treatments are sufficient to see dramatic results. Additional treatments may be required for very large or dark spots or for densely covered areas
What happens after the treatment?
Immediately following the treatment, the spots may begin to darken. You may notice a slight reddening of the surrounding skin. This typically subsides with a couple of hours. Over the course of the next one to three weeks, darkened spots will fade and flake off.
When will I see results?
Most patients find the majority of their treated spots have shown significant improvement with two to three weeks of treatment. However, your final results may not be apparent for a month or more.
