WHAT IS THE IPL PHOTOFACIAL?
The IPL Photofacial is a procedure that heats the skin to improve skin tone and reduce surface imperfections associated with aging and photodamage such as redness, veins, and lightly pigmented brown spots. IPL stands for Intense Pulsed Light; our technique takes advantage of the latest in skincare technology by utilizing multiple wavelengths that target cells beneath the surface of the skin. These wavelengths help remove hyperactive melanin-producing cells, resulting in a more uniform facial appearance.
IS IPL PHOTOFACIAL RIGHT FOR ME?
Joie’s team of Clinical Skin Experts will customize your photofacial to your skin type and selectively treat the brown and/or red pigmented areas on your skin. The IPL Photofacial reduces multiple signs of sun damage, including rosacea, redness and red patches, brown and red spots, freckles, pigment or complexion imperfections, and ultraviolet damage. Should you have any of these concerns, the JTAV IPL Photofacial on the Upper East Side in NYC is probably right for you.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT FROM THE IPL PHOTOFACIAL?
Treatment time depends on the size and number of areas treated, but it generally takes one hour and can be included in your Custom Treatment. There may be momentary discomfort, which is assuaged with a cooling gel that helps relieve it. Following your treatment, brown spots will immediately darken and skin may appear slightly red. Any redness will dissipate within a few hours. Within 1-3 weeks, the darkened spots will flake off and fade, redness or veins will decrease, and skin tone will become evener.
One to three treatments are usually sufficient to see results; however, additional treatments may be recommended for excessively sun-damaged skin. To avoid new brown spots, veins, and to diffuse redness, remember to always apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen every day. We also offer a series of treatments for best results. IPL Photofacial treatments can be done on the arms, legs, shoulders, chest, neck, hands, and face.
