What is an IPL Photofacial?
An IPL photofacial uses Intense Pulsed Light to target deeper layers of your skin. The procedure utilizes a non-ablative laser that is highly focused on certain pigments in your skin, such as those that cause redness, discoloration, and broken capillaries. As such, it virtually erases imperfections, while at the same time increasing firmness to gently smooth away fine lines and wrinkles.
Benefits of an IPL Photofacial
Dr. Zamora can customize your IPL laser treatment in order to target your own specific skin issues. Whether you suffer from rosacea or have experienced significant sun damage, you can achieve the results you desire with as little interruption to your normal activities as possible.
Who is the Ideal Candidate for an IPL Photofacial?
Successful treatment depends on your willingness to undergo the required number of sessions. While an IPL photofacial can provide you with dramatic results, there are some limitations as to what you can accomplish with it. As such, it is important to have realistic goals before beginning a treatment program.
People with light-colored skin benefit the most from IPL laser treatments. You may want to consider a different procedure if you have a darker skin tone or are taking any medication that makes you more susceptible to sunlight.
What do I Need to do Before an IPL Photofacial?
Dr. Zamora will provide you with more specific instructions during your consultation, which is when he will come up with your treatment plan.
What Should I Expect on the Day of my IPL Photofacial?
You will relax comfortably in a chair while Dr. Zamora applies the intense pulsed light to your face. Many of our patients remark that this feels as though a rubber band is snapping against their skin. Of course, the more intense the light is, the greater this sensation will be. While most people tolerate this feeling quite well, others are bothered by it and request a topical anesthetic to reduce discomfort. We are always happy to accommodate these requests and encourage you to speak with us if you have any similar concerns.
How Long Does it Take to Perform an IPL Photofacial?
The procedure itself typically takes less than 30 minutes. You should plan on spending about an hour or so in our office during each of your sessions.
What to Expect After an IPL Photofacial
Your skin may have a red or pink tint for a day or so afterwards. This is usually rather easy to conceal with cosmetics, and should, therefore, be virtually unnoticeable to others.
Will I Have Scars After an IPL Photofacial?
One of the things our Daytona Beach patients like most about IPL Photofacials is the fact that they leave no scars whatsoever! Now it’s possible to look and feel your very best without having to worry about unsightly scars that might detract from your final results.
How Long Will the Results of an IPL Photofacial Last?
Our patients on average maintain their results for anywhere between six and 12 months. Many of them return to our office after that time for another IPL photofacial.
How Much Does an IPL Photofacial Cost in Daytona Beach?
The cost of each IPL photofacial procedure is different and based on a number of factors that are unique to you. To make IPL photofacials as affordable as possible, we accept cash, personal checks, and major credit cards, in addition to a number of affordable financing options.
