The Photo Facial
One of the most popular treatments for sun-damaged skin is IPL or Intense Pulse Light Therapy. The procedure uses pulses of light that are absorbed by the dark pigment in our skin and converted to heat. This heat damages the hair follicles and slows or stops hair growth.
In IPL, a dermatologist will use a handheld device that contains many small light-emitting diodes, or LEDs. These emit laser lights at various wavelengths that go deep into your skin and target different pigments with different frequencies. It is not painful but feels like a hot rubber band snap on your skin.
IPL can offer significant benefits for those who have spent too long unprotected in the sun – it can help to reduce redness, brown spots, white patches, and large pores on the face as well. Video credit: https://bio2laserstudio.com
