IPL Photofacial stimulates collagen production in skin and can be used to achieve various treatment results, including:
The IPL Fotofacial treatment uses a specific pulsed light that penetrates deep into the skin and helps the production of new collagen and other connective tissues, needed for youthful and healthy looking skin.
White light is a mixture of various colors and lights with different wave lengths. Each individual color and wave length within the spectrum can affect different cells and different cellular structures of the skin in different ways. At Amoderm in Orange County, we use advanced medical IPL photofacial machines capable of capturing and refining broadband light by utilizing filters to purify the energy output for targeting specific chromophores and pigments in the skin. Non-ablative and gentle by nature, the light from our IPL machine will penetrate the outer layers of skin to be absorbed by the target cells in the inner layers of the skin. Depending on the treatment settings and specific treatment heads used by your clinician, the IPL light beam can affect and treat many conditions, such as:
Once the IPL treatment is done, the body’s own immune system will cleanse the treated site and complete the treatment process, causing a noticeable healthy outcome to the overall look and feel of the skin. The result is a rejuvenated and smooth skin. Photofacial is safe for the face, hands, or any other body area.
The rejuvenation process starts from the very first session with the results often noticeable within 5 days, but patients usually need a few sessions (3 to 8, depending on the treatment area and skin condition) for the best results. The IPL Photofacial at Amoderm is provided using state-of-art equipments which meet the highest standards of the industry. Unlike some other IPL machines whose light beam is absorbed largely by the superficial dead layers of the skin and causes significant flaking, our IPL therapeutic light beam reaches deep into the skin and affects cells responsible for making collagen, pigments and other components of the skin. As the result, superficial flaking of the skin will often be minimal, while the skin is stimulated to produce collagen and become healthier and younger-looking with longer-lasting results.
