The IPL Photofacial is a laser system that helps to reduce pigmentation on the skin for an even tone. Pigmentation can cause many to feel self-conscious in their look. This can be frustrating to deal with and hard to cover up. The IPL Photofacial is a great way to address the concern as well as other cosmetic concerns. Dr. Michael Krathen offers this treatment at Essential Dermatology in Natick, MA.
How Does the IPL Photofacial Work?
IPL (intense pulsed light) uses quick light pulses during treatment to help you achieve your desired look. When melanin cells produce and become localized, they create discoloration and moles. Also, vascular changes can cause veins to become closer to the skin and highly visible. The IPL Photofacial treatment targets pigmentation and damage in blood cells. The light energy breaks up the melanin and cells which causes the body to naturally dispose of them. The great thing about IPL Photofacial is the targeted light does not damage the surrounding tissue. After your treatment, it is important to continually protect your skin from the sun to prevent any further damage. Dr. Krathen can suggest daily sunscreen and skincare products to help keep your skin healthy.
