IPL Photofacial | Zinsser Plastic Surgery
A photofacial, or intense pulsed light (IPL) treatment, is an excellent method for correcting age spots and tiny facial blood vessels. During treatment, the skin is cooled while the handpiece disperses disperses bright flashes of light. The light pulses essentially cauterize the pigment of age spots, and the spots vanish in a few days. The procedure also significantly improves facial redness by treating tiny spider veins on the face.
IPL Photofacials are used to treat:
- Age spots
- Wrinkles and fine lines
- Broken capillaries
- Sun damage
Two to four treatment sessions are typically recommended for optimal results. Recovery time is usually only hours with full results visible in seven to ten days after treatment.
