Intense pulsed light (IPL) therapy, aka PhotoFacial, is a great treatment for those with rosacea and is also a way to improve visible damage such as discoloration, hyperpigmentation, melasma and textured skin. You may notice it mostly on your face, neck, hands, or chest.
IPL may help if you have red, brown, or splotchy skin because of a health condition.
IPL is a treatment that is best to have done in cooler months.
- Depending on your skin issue and settings, you may have 3-7 days of a sunburnt feel, a coffee
grind look, and some flaking.
- Avoid sun exposure 7 days prior to treatment.
