What is an IPL Photofacial?
IPL is short for “intense pulsed light.” During an IPL photofacial at SkynBar of Atlanta, your aesthetician will precisely calibrate a light-emitting device to target specific skin concerns or to deliver comprehensive full-face rejuvenation. The light pulses are then absorbed by the pigment – or melanin – and red blood cells in the skin, which, in turn, generate heat. This heat acts like a superficial injury to your skin but doesn’t cause any lasting damage. The IPL photofacial activates your skin’s natural healing processes without harming delicate dermal tissue.
As your skin heals and repairs itself, it produces an abundance of skin-firming proteins – such as collagen and elastin. This allows your skin to shed its dull, damaged outer layer and replace it with supple, vibrant new skin. The result? The effects of age-related collagen loss are mitigated and the dark pigment inside age spots and freckles is broken down, creating a more even skin coloration.
IPL photofacials use broad-spectrum light, which is made up of many different wavelengths. Your SkynBar of Atlanta aesthetician can adjust these wavelengths by calibrating your IPL photofacial to react with specific skin conditions. The extreme versatility of the IPL photofacial makes it easy for your SkynBar of Atlanta aesthetician to treat a single issue or address multiple problems simultaneously.
Typically, clients receive between three and six treatments spaced roughly one month apart.
