About IPL Photofacial

INTENSE PULSED LIGHT

Intense Pulsed Light, also known as photofacial, is a non-laser, precision light generator that minimizes skin discolorations associated with accumulated sun damage and age spots on the face and chest. Photofacials also help reduce the look of vascular problems, such as rosacea, while leaving the surface of the skin unharmed.
