The acne products you put me on are working so well. I am now more confident because my skin is so much clearer.
Improve your skin's texture, tone and color with Intense Pulsed Light (IPL). With no downtime, this anti-aging, laser therapy treatment safely and effectively improves skin.
Through a series of gentle pulses, IPL/Photofacial uses a specific wavelength to deliver a precise amount of light deep within the skin. Dr. Clinton or her staff direct the light at specific areas of concern and many patients see improvement in acne spots in a little as 24 hours.
Because IPL increases collagen production and is absorbed by discolored skin pigment, discolorations are broken into particles that are removed by the body’s natural immune system or sloughed off skin's surface.
During the 15- to 30-minute treatment, expect a bright light followed by a mild and temporary stinging sensation. (Similar to a rubber band snapping against the skin.)
Pigmented spots darken and eventually flake off, however they are unnoticeable and should not impact your work or social life. If you don't have brown, red or dark pigmented spots, you will not experience this type of flaking.
For optimal results, Dr. Clinton usually recommends 4 to 6 treatments over a 3- to 6-week period and sometimes as part of a skin maintenance plan.
Use cold compresses, as needed for comfort. Get complete treatment instructions.
