IPL (INTENSE PULSE LIGHT)
The IPL photofacial is a non-invasive treatment that leaves you with the appearance of healthy and more youthful skin by targeting and destroying pigmented cells, leaving only healthy tissue.
This reveals a healthier and smoother complexion. At Washingtonian Plastic Surgery, we offer two different types of lasers that perform IPL treatments: The Spectrum and Palomar Icon MaxG.
Photorejuvenation can improve:
- Sun damage
- Age spots
- Enlarged pores
- Broken capillaries
- Spider veins
HOW MANY TREATMENTS ARE REQUIRED?
A standard treatment entails a series of 3-5 treatments performed at 4-week intervals. Some may be satisfied with 2-3 treatments, and some may desire additional treatments.
WHAT CAN BE EXPECTED POST-TREATMENT?
With no downtime, you may immediately return to your routine. You will need to be protected from the sun, so wear sunscreen and a hat if you plan on being outdoors. The skin will be sensitive and you may experience minimal swelling.
HOW SOON WILL RESULTS APPEAR?
Noticeable results may appear after the first few treatments. Most patients enjoy healthier skin 2 weeks after their treatment.
