What is IPL Photofacial?
IPL Photofacial is a non-invasive laser procedure to freshen the skin. It eliminates red and brown skin discolorations, which are caused by sun and tanning bed damage. It treats the lesions and the scarring of acne. These painless treatments take about 15-30 minutes and patients do a series of 5 treatments, 3–4 weeks apart.
What Are the Benefits of IPL Treatments?
IPL treatments offer a variety of benefits for someone experiencing a wide range of skin problems. At her Houston practice, Dr. Kronberg uses IPL to remove red spots, diffuse redness, and help with acne or rosacea. Treatments can also help smooth uneven skin texture, close large pores, and eliminate wrinkles by stimulating collagen growth.
The IPL Photofacial laser provides patients with the results of a medium depth peel without the down time or risk of a more invasive procedure.
