IPL Photofacial Procedure: An Overview

Beverly Hills IPL PhotoFacial Pictures

Want to get rid of hyperpigmentation, sun damage, acne scars and blotchy redness? With a treatment called Intense Pulsed Light (IPL), you can say goodbye to blemishes and say hello to smoother, younger-looking skin. This is a great procedure for your face, chest and hands.

What's Involved in the IPL Photofacial Procedure?

This treatment usually takes about 30-45 minutes and is performed by a licensed registered nurse or nurse practitioner who is also certified to perform this procedure. The skin is treated with intense pulses of light that go deep into the skin. This causes a contraction of blood vessels below the epidermis. This, in turn, reduces age lines, sun damage and redness. IPL Photofacial reviews in the Beverly Hills area are exceptionally positive.

What Happens During A Photofacial Treatment?

The skin is treated with high energy light waves that stimulate the production of collagen. Collagen is a natural protein that fills in fine lines and wrinkles so the skin looks smoother. To achieve maximum results, a series of treatments are performed which can vary by patient and condition ranging from 3-5 and yearly maintenance. Pre-treating your skin with retinols or lightening agents is highly recommended prior to the treatment.

What are the Photofacial Benefits?

IPL photofacial treatment is a gentle rejuvenation procedure that can deliver healthy-looking and radiant skin. The benefits of the procedure develop gradually in the weeks following treatment, and the treatments are particularly effective on sun damaged skin, red, blotchy skin and skin discolorations.

It is important that clients understand exactly what the LED photofacial procedure can deliver. For the right candidates, treatments can improve skin texture, eliminate blotchy redness, reduce the size of pores, get rid of discolorations and minimize fine lines and wrinkles. Treatments of IPL photofacial for acne can deliver particularly dramatic results. Most photofacial reviews are very positive.

On the other hand, this procedure will not eliminate deep facial wrinkles. Potential patients are advised to look at IPL photofacial pictures and research IPL Photofacial Wiki for more detailed information.

Are There any IPL Photofacial Side Effects?

Ideal candidates for this treatment have white, untanned skin that still has some elasticity. There is minimal discomfort and no downtime. There may be some swelling and redness for a few hours after treatment, but this clears up quickly.

What does the IPL Photofacial Cost?

LED photofacial treatment costs less than other common procedures like cosmetic surgery or laser skin treatments. The total cost will depend on the severity of the problems and the number of treatments needed to obtain the desired result.

What's Involved in Photofacial Aftercare?

Because the treatment causes little damage to the skin, the recovery time is very short. There is some degree of redness immediately after treatment which typically clears up within a few hours. Post-treatment, patients are advised to stay out of the sun for several days and to wear sunscreen for two weeks.

Practice Policy Update Regarding COVID-19 View Update Virtual Consultation


Coronavirus (Covid-19) Update

March 23rd, 2020

After serious consideration and in line with the recommendations of our State and Centers for Disease Control (CDC), we are closing the practice until Mid April.

Your health and well-being is our primary concern and we want to do our part to make sure that you are protected.

Effective immediately the following will occur:

  • All procedures and in-person consultations will be suspended until further notice.
  • The office will be available for Retail and PrePaid Packages as well as to answer any and all questions and concerns.
  • Virtual Consultations are available upon request.

We are constantly updating our services and staffing according to the local and national recommendations and will always place your health and well-being as our top priority.

We continue to exercise all the latest recommendations that are handed down by the CDC. These include:

  • Staff have been fully informed and trained to understand the disease process and its modes of transmission.
  • All staff, vendors and ancillary personnel are being asked to refrain from coming to this office if they have any signs or symptoms of a cold or an upper respiratory tract infection.
  • Every patient is also being asked to refrain from coming to the office if they have any symptoms.
  • We are asking our patients about any pertinent travel history.
  • Hand-washing continues to be the most important mode of prevention. Although it is a part of what we constantly do, now we are doing so with heightened vigilance and attention.
  • We have instituted a “no handshakes no hug” policy for now.
  • We have asked all vendors that any unnecessary meetings are canceled until further notice.
  • As we are an accredited medical facility, we are constantly sanitizing all surfaces. We have now vamped that up and our routine, multiple times a day, wiping down all surfaces, desks, door handles, keyboards and restroom facilities. We have assigned a person that does so on a constant basis.

Although Covid-19 is a serious issue, we strongly believe that it will pass and hopefully make our infrastructure and our ability to deal with pandemics in this Country even better than it currently is. We are monitoring this situation on a real-time basis and will not sit back until we know that we have done everything possible to avoid unnecessary exposure.
