IPL Photo Facial in Philadelphia
IPL / Photo Facial skin treatments are recommended rosacea, hyperpigmentation, sun damage, acne scars & fine lines . Brown spots, broken capillaries and other fallout from photoaging or sun damage are easy targets for light based IPL systems that use broadband light to repair these defects through a process called photorejuvenation. Additionally, facial fine lines and wrinkles can now be treated non-ablatively, contributing to a more youthful appearance. Using relatively low-energy, short-pulse broadband light, imperfections such as erythema of rosacea, superficial telangiectasia, dyschromia, age spots and other discolored signs of photoaging, and acne can be gently heated and eliminated, replaced by newer, younger looking skin. In fact, IPL skin treatments for skin rejuvenation, hyperpigmentation or dark spots and or acne scars can be done during a lunch hour 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 downtime.

How would these results be achieved?
- Although there are several methods of laser skin rejuvenation, at MaxAesthetics Med 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.Post Care: Sun protection of 15 or higher is a must. Avoid tanning or sunning.Avoid products with acids or harsh exfoliants for at least two weeks post IPL.For women: It is best to use mineral makeup if needed. Mineral makeup is a natural sun protection and skin healer.
