When you are concerned about how your complexion looks because of dark spots or sun damage, Dolce Aesthetics™ can offer you a skin examination at our Scottsdale and Chandler, AZ offices to determine if you’ll benefit from IPL (intense pulsed light) therapy. A photofacial with IPL is a rejuvenating skin treatment for adult women and men with hyperpigmentation concerns on their face and neck. IPL may be a noninvasive process, but it can be very effective and produce amazing outcomes. Our team uses intense wavelengths of light energy that heat the skin to ignite the natural healing process and boost the production of collagen. Over time, you should see a healthier layer with an improved tone and decreased spots.
How Does IPL Work?
A photofacial is completed at our Scottsdale and Chandler, AZ office in around 20 – 30 minutes in one of our minor procedure rooms. To prepare for the photofacial, a member of our team will clean and dry your skin before covering your eyes. The photofacial is performed using a handheld wand that will pass over the skin while emitting pulses of light energy.
You may leave our office with your complexion appearing slightly pink. This will go away on its own in about a day, and it may be concealed with makeup if you prefer. Dolce Aesthetics advises patients to use a moisturizer on the skin to decrease irritation and speed healing. It may also help to use anti-inflammatory medicine to ease swelling. While you will see visible improvements after your first session, your skin will attain ideal results after several IPL sessions.
