Restore your skin from the inside out with Halcyon Med Spa Laser Services
IPL PHOTO FACIAL
The intense pulse light (IPL) is absorbed by various structures in the skin responsible for unwanted blemishes. A more even complexion and smoother skin are seen with just a few treatments.
During your consultation, a treatment provider will carefully examine your face, neck, chest, and hands to check for the kind of sun damage, vascular issues, and pigment irregularities that can be helped with IPL.
You’ll be asked to stay out of sunlight before getting the treatment done. If you’ve tanned recently, we’ll ask you to wait a while before coming in for treatments. We’ll ask you to avoid medications that make you more sensitive to light, but always consult your doctor before stopping prescribed medications.
Treatments are quick and usually take about 30-60 minutes. During the treatment, your skin may appear slightly red and swollen. This is a normal reaction. You might feel a slight warming of the skin and mild discomfort during treatment.
You’ll be asked to avoid scented lotions, exfoliants, and aggressive scrubbing. It’s normal for freckles and sunspots to initially get darker and they usually flake off within one to three weeks. You might feel something like a sunburn after the treatment, but an ice pack should help.
How it works?
What to expect.
HOW IPL PHOTO FACIAL WORKS
The light energy will gently heat the upper layers of your skin. The heat absorbed by the targeted areas will stimulate your skin cells to regenerate new collagen. This process will restore your skin to its natural beauty, blending its natural colors and making it smoother, vibrant, and younger-looking. In addition, the photothermal energy eliminates the fine vessels that cause redness and reduces the unwanted melanin that produces pigmented lesions. The IPL machine is equipped with advanced cooling features, allowing the use of high-powered energy with minimal discomfort. IPL is a safe, effective approach to younger-looking skin. It is recommended that individuals undergo treatment two to four times per year for optimal results.

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN BBL AND IPL TREATMENTS? The main difference between BBL and IPL lies in their targets. IPL uses light waves to target the skin's hemoglobin and melanin levels to remedy skin issues. On the other hand, BBL uses high-intensity light to stimulate collagen production to boost natural reparation.
