What is IPL or Photofacial Technology?

IPL stands for Intense pulsed light and is a technology used by aesthetic and medical practitioners for skin treatments specifically customized to an individual patient’s needs. IPL can be used on the entire body and treats your face, neck, chest, back, arms, legs, hands, ears, lips, eyes, and feet.

IPL releases light in many different wavelengths. The light from IPL penetrates down to the second layer of your skin or the dermis. It does not harm the epidermis, so it causes less damage to your skin.

Pigment cells in your skin absorb the light energy, which is converted into heat. The heat destroys the unwanted pigment to clear up freckles and other spots. IPL can also destroy the hair follicles to prevent hair from growing again. You can use IPL anywhere on your body, but IPL isn’t recommended for those who have thick and raised keloid scars or who have darker skin tones.

IPL, also known as photorejuvenation or a photofacial, is a non-ablative treatment emitting intense, visible pulses of light onto a targeted area. A photofacial or IPL is a state-of-the-art skin treatment that promotes collagen production to improve the effects of sun damage, rosacea, fine lines, large pores, acne scars, and so many more.

Sciton BBL Hero addresses these pigment issues, reduces redness and vascularity, heats tissue deep within the dermis for a revitalization effect. IPL does not damage the surrounding skin.

Results are visible after only one session, but a series of 3-5 treatments are recommended for optimal results. There is extraordinarily little downtime, and you can resume your normal activities almost immediately.

The Sciton BBL will not only treat surface issues but by doing IPL treatments, your skin will actually be younger and healthier than it was, giving your skin its youthful glow back.
