IPL Photo Facial is recommended for the treatment of  hyperpigmentation, melasma,  sun damage, acne scars & mild rosacea. Brown spots, broken capillaries and other fallout from sun exposure are easy targets for light based IPL systems that use broadband light to repair these defects through a process called photo rejuvenation. 

Additionally, facial fine lines  may also be minimized non-ablatively, contributing to a more youthful appearance. Using relatively low-energy, short-pulse broadband light, imperfections such as erythema or rosacea, superficial telangiectasia, dyschromia, age spots, freckles and other discolored signs of photo aging, and acne can be gently heated and eliminated, replaced by clearer, younger looking skin. 

IPL Photo Facial can be done during  lunch and no one will notice any sign of treatment, just a gradual improvement in the skin's appearance because each treatment is gentle with no major downtime except some mild redness which subsides within an hour for most individuals.
Note: Though IPL Photo facial will aid in the reduction of superficial telangiectasia or broken capillaries, it is best  for  the removal of freckles, dark spots and sun spots. For Broken Capillaries or veins please see Spider veins treatment page

How would these results be achieved?
Although there are several methods of laser skin rejuvenation to remove dark spots, at MaxAesthetics Spa in Philadelphia we perform light based treatments. Light based systems and lasers are very similar, however, the light based system removes lesions in a much safer way. When the light energy is absorbed in the pigmented lesion, it breaks up the melanin that causes the discoloration. IPL Photofacials can be performed on the face, chest, neck, arms, hands , back and legs.
What To Expect After IPL
Immediately after your treatment, your skin will feel like you had a sunburn, and may feel this way for up to 48 hours. Your skin may be red and dark spots will appear a bit darker and slightly raised and will begin to flake or exfoliate off your skin within 2-3 days and may take up to 10 days to complete.

IPL Photo facial Post Care: Sun protection of 15 or higher is a must. Avoid tanning or sunning. Avoid products with acids, retin A, or harsh exfoliants for at least two weeks post IPL. 
Makeup can be worn immediately after an IPL Photo Facial. However, it is best to use mineral makeup if needed. Mineral makeup is a natural sun protection and skin healer.​​
