Answers to Frequently Asked Questions About Fraxel Facials
What Is an IPL Facial?
“IPL” stands for Intense Pulsed Light. IPL facials use high-intensity pulses of specific light frequencies to repair damaged skin cells and/or collapse unwanted blood vessels. The technique is called “photo rejuvenation” because the light stimulates the production of new skin cells and collagen, resulting in younger, “plumper”, healthier looing skin.
What Does an IPL Facial Treat?
IPL Facials are excellent for treating:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Enlarged pores
- Rosacea or redness due to fragile capillaries
- Age spots, brown spots or discoloration
- Freckles or Melasma
- Acne scars
- Spider veins and capillaries
Does an IPL Facial Hurt?
IPL facials have been compared to the gentle snap of an elastic band against the skin – or a very light pinprick.
IPL facials do not require any anesthetic. But to ensure your utmost comfort during the procedure do cool the skin, which helps to minimize any minor discomfort.
The results are amazing – and all of our patients agree that the minor and temporary discomfort is absolutely worth it, to be rid of fine lines, wrinkles, broken capillaries, acne scars and/or brown spots!
What Can You Expect Following an IPL Treatment?
With IPL, there is a more amount minimal redness and swelling and healing is usually complete within 3 days – but sometimes up to 5 days.
Brown spots will darken at first, and then gradually peel and flake off, to reveal clearer skin underneath. The skins texture and appearance will continue to improve for months following treatment as new collagen is produced in the skin – making it smoother and more plumped.
How Many IPL Facials will I Need?
The number of IPL treatments you will require will depend upon your type of skin and the specific issues you need to correct. All patients do see visible results after just one treatment. However, to achieve optimal results, many patients require a series of three to five treatment sessions.
We will assess your skin in your first consultation and let you know how many treatments we recommend to achieve the best possible results for your skin. We offer reasonably priced packages that are more affordable than buying single treatments one at a time.
