Sun damage and aging leave your skin looking dull and unhealthy. To address these concerns, Colorado Ophthalmology and CosMEDics offers IPL® Photo Facials for men and women in Lone Tree, Littleton, Aurora, and surrounding areas of Colorado.
What is an IPL® Photo Facial?
An IPL° Photo Facial is a unique treatment that relies on intense pulsed light (IPL°) to rejuvenate your skin without surgery. Your skin looks firmer and brighter. IPL® Photo Facials can also be used to correct other issues that affect your appearance, such as vascular lesions and freckles.
What Can Be Treated with an IPL® Photo Facial?
IPL° Photo Facials are ideal for a range of cosmetic concerns, such as:
- Visible blood vessels (broken capillaries)
- Poor skin texture and tone
- Pigmented lesions, such as freckles and age spots
How is an IPL® Photo Facial Performed?
An IPL® Photo Facial takes about 30 to 60 minutes. The intense pulsed light is administered in small sections. We can either treat your entire face or just problem areas. You will feel some sensations during the treatment that are similar to pinching a small part of your skin. You will also experience a mild warming sensation that indicates the treatment is working. Most patients tolerate the treatment well, but we can use topical numbing agents if you feel uncomfortable.
IPL® Photo Facial Recovery
After your IPL° Photo Facial, your skin will be mildly red and swollen, and it is also more sensitive to sunlight. It feels and looks as though you have a slight sunburn. You can gently apply a cold compress to alleviate any discomfort. As part of your aftercare, avoid using certain products that may irritate your skin, such as fragrant lotions, facial scrubs, and exfoliating products. Any age spots and freckles that were treated will darken slightly in the coming days, and then flake off after seven to 21 days.
How Much Does an IPL® Photo Facial Cost?
The cost of an IPL® Photo Facial varies based on several factors. We discuss the price as part of your consultation. At Colorado Ophthalmology and CosMEDics, we strive to keep our pricing affordable, and we also offer financing options for our services.
