Human skin contains melanin, a pigment that gives the skin color and protects the skin from damage from the sun.
Sometimes people have too much melanin (hyper-pigmentation), while others have too little (hypo-pigmentation).
Since light affects the amount of pigment a person produces, IPL has the ability to reduce problems in skin tone like rosacea, freckles, liver spots and redness.
The collagen stimulation that results as a result of IPL can plump up the skin around the pores, making them look smaller.
This new collagen can improve irregularities of skin texture, mild acne scars, reduces large pores and dark circles around the eyes.
IPL reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. IPL is able to do this not only by stimulating collagen growth, but also making the existing collagen constrict, making the skin appear firmer and smoother.
Collagen is a substance in the skin that gives skin its shapeliness and elasticity.
Signs of sun damage and age spots temporarily darken but over the course of the next one to three weeks, darkened spots will fade and flake off and your mottled complexion will clear.
On average, 5 to 6 IPL PhotoFacial treatments are recommended, scheduled at three-week intervals.
