Your face is the most visible part of your body and is the single most important feature associated with your identity. Unfortunately, your face is also usually the first to suffer from the negative effects of aging, including age spots, large pores, uneven skin tone, and more. A series of IPL Photofacials can not only tighten and smooth your skin, but it can also remove unwanted pigmentation and blemishes – all at a relatively low cost and with limited recovery time. Skin Matrx provides the IPL treatment Burbank patients will always be impressed with.
What to expect with an IPL Photofacial
Your treatment will begin with an application of a transparent cooling gel to your face, after which the laser will be run carefully and systematically over the targeted areas. The treatment usually takes from 30 to 90 minutes, depending on how much skin is being treated.
Most patients report the sensation of the laser to be similar to a rubber band snapping on their skin. At the end of the treatment, the gel will be removed, the area will be cleansed with a warm cloth, and a moisturizer with sunscreen will be applied. If there is any mild swelling, you might be given a cold pack to apply for five or ten minutes. You can apply a concealer or foundation immediately following treatment. IPL photofacials achieve the best results when performed in a series.
