Photofacial – IPL Treatment
You love living in the Sunshine State, but are you concerned about the lasting effects it has had on your skin? Are you frustrated with the appearance of brown spots, but have not seen any changes with any products you’ve tried? Don’t give up your time in the sun! IPL treatments can reduce pesky imperfections on your skin. Learn more about the benefits of this treatment option during your consultation at Miller Medicine in Tavernier, FL!
What Is IPL?
IPL, or intense pulsed light, is a treatment method utilizing multiple wavelengths of light to reduce the appearance of frustrating sun damage. Regular time in the sun without proper protective care can result in brown spots or pigmentation issues on the skin, and many other anti-aging treatments may not treat them.
This FDA-approved treatment is safe and effective in treating:
- Age spots
- Broken blood vessels
- Brown spots
It is commonly used on the face, chest, hands, and neck. However, other treatment areas can be discussed during your consultation.
What Could I Expect from a Procedure?
IPL treatments are commonly called photofacials. Photofacials are performed by utilizing wavelengths of light to reduce the appearance of spots and lines. They target a specific treatment area, helping reduce the number of treatments necessary. While you may experience a slight stinging during the procedure, an anesthetic cream can be applied for your comfort.
IPL treatment is completed as an outpatient procedure in the comfort of our Florida office. The procedure is non-surgical and minimally invasive, and there is no established downtime typically associated with treatment. However, some redness may be present after a treatment session.
Achieving and maintaining the best results from IPL requires a series of treatments. Our team can help you develop a treatment plan best for you and your goals. Plans typically include monthly treatments for a few months, and each session is usually short, lasting about half an hour. Results from treatment are usually visible shortly after treatment, but they do vary.
Am I a Good Candidate?
IPL is usually most effective for lighter skin tones, but a consultation with our team in Tavernier is the best way to determine if you can benefit from this treatment option. This treatment is a great alternative for those who want to treat signs of aging but are not interested in surgical or more invasive treatment options.
