IPL Photofacial Treatments

IPL photofacials use intense pulsed light technology to treat a wide range of skin conditions. IPL photofacial in Atlanta can address age spots, broken blood vessels, brown pigmentation, and other skin changes brought on by exposure to the sun’s rays. At Astra Plastic Surgery, you can rely on the innovative IPL photofacial treatments offered by our expert skin care team to help you achieve your aesthetic goals.

What Is An IPL Photofacial?

Intense pulsed light (IPL) uses multiple wavelengths of light to treat different skin conditions, including brown pigmentation, age spots, and broken blood vessels. IPL is a non-laser, high-intensity light source that makes use of a high-output flash lamp to produce a broad wavelength output of non-coherent light.

Since the individual light pulses have a specific duration, intensity, and spectral distribution, it allows for a controlled and confined energy delivery into targeted skin tissues. Intense pulsed light technologies have evolved significantly since their introduction to the medical community decades ago. IPL photorejuvenation can be used for the aesthetic treatment of many cosmetic concerns. IPL photofacial allows for precision targeting, meaning that the targeted areas alone are capable of absorbing energy from this broad spectrum of light, while the tissues surrounding the targeted structures are spared. IPL can be used to treat the facial changes of rosacea, including redness and broken blood vessels, in addition to treating these symptoms on the hands, neck, and chest.

What Are The Benefits Of An IPL Photofacial?

IPL photofacial treatment uses broad-spectrum light that filters out unwanted wavelengths as a means of treating skin conditions and abnormalities. It can be very effective in diminishing or removing skin imperfections including, but not limited to, age spots, liver spots, fine lines, wrinkles, redness, broken capillaries, spider and varicose veins, hemangiomas, freckles, sun damage, port-wine stains, birthmarks, tattoos, and telangiectasias.

Am I An Ideal Candidate For IPL Photofacial?

If you struggle from skin imperfections that have developed over the years, IPL photofacial may be right for you. Aging around the upper torso and neckline is a very common problem because the chest skin is so delicate and so frequently exposed to the direct rays of the sun and ultraviolet sun damage. Brown spots, sunspots, age spots, red spots, rough thickened skin, and wrinkles are all changes that can occur on the décolletage and neckline. These same conditions can occur on your face, as well as on other parts of your body.

The ideal candidate for photorejuvenation treatments is in generally good health and a nonsmoker. Additionally, patients who have a suntan or deeper skin tones are not ideal candidates for an IPL photofacial, as there is a risk for hyperpigmentation. During your consultation for an IPL photofacial, Dr. Killingsworth and his skin care team will help determine if you are an ideal candidate for photorejuvenation in Atlanta.

What Can I Expect During IPL Photofacial In Atlanta?

Unlike laser skin resurfacing, chemical peels, and dermabrasion, there is almost no downtime with IPL photofacial. That means no blisters, burns, or long recovery periods, and you can go right back to your daily activities after your treatment is complete. First, a topical anesthetic is applied to the treatment area.

After a cold gel is applied, a glass prism is placed over the target area. Pulses of intense light will be flashed through the prism, directed precisely at the treatment area. You may receive several IPL sessions, which are usually performed every three to four weeks. The target area may be slightly pink or red following your treatment. In addition, there may be some mild swelling. It will be recommended that you use sunscreen with a high sun protection factor after your IPL photofacial treatment to protect the skin.

What Can I Expect After IPL Photofacial In Atlanta?

Following an IPL photofacial, it is recommended that patients keep the treated area moist and hydrated. Some patients may experience slight discomfort in the days following their treatment, including redness or swelling. Although these symptoms should subside in the days following the procedure, patients may use aloe or cold compresses to relieve discomfort. Patients should also avoid sun exposure following their treatment.

After your IPL photorejuvenation treatment, our skin care team will provide detailed instructions for taking care of your skin after the procedure. It is important that patients follow these directions with care to achieve the maximum results.





What Results Can I Expect From IPL Photofacial In Atlanta?

Patients will be able to notice results immediately after their IPL photofacial. However, these results will continue to develop in the days and weeks following the treatment. Patients will notice their skin appearing smoother and brighter and their pores becoming less noticeable. In order to maintain these results, multiple treatments are necessary.

During your consultation for IPL photofacial in Atlanta, Dr. Killingsworth and his skin care team will provide you with more details on the results you can expect after your treatment. The results of IPL photofacial will depend largely on the extent of skin imperfections you are looking to combat, your aesthetic goals, as well as the quality of your skin.

How Much Does IPL Photofacial Cost In Atlanta?

The cost of your personalized IPL photofacial treatments at Astra Plastic Surgery is based upon the specific concerns you are looking to address, as well as which course of treatment is necessary to achieve optimal results. During your consultation for IPL photofacial, our Atlanta skin care team will determine how many intense pulsed light treatments are needed to achieve your desired results. We will then provide you with a detailed cost assessment after the consultation.
