IPL Photofacials (Photo Rejuvenation)
Nova Cosmetic Center offers IPL photofacials to patients from Orlando and nearby locations.
Do sunspots, age spots and facial vessels make you feel older on the outside instead of the youthful person you are on the inside? Then our photo rejuvenation at Nova Cosmetic Center in Orlando is the treatment for you. Also known as a photofacial, this process uses intense pulsed light (IPL) to remove skin imperfections and reduce the appearance of rosacea.
Our IPL photofacials at Nova provide a safe, comfortable and fast skin-enhancing option for our patients in the greater Orlando region. Many men and women - from Altamonte Springs, Kissimmee, Apopka, Sanford, Winter Park and further afield - are appreciating the benefits of photo rejuvenation. With IPL photofacials, you can remove damage caused by years of sun exposure and minimize the effects of aging.
Is an IPL Photofacial Right for Me?
An ideal candidate for an IPL photofacial is an individual with light- to medium-hued skin tone. If you have a darker complexion, your skin's higher melanin level may hinder your success with the procedure. Photo rejuvenation can be performed in any area, except directly around the eyes. Most of our IPL photofacial patients in Orlando are concerned with:
- Sun-damaged skin, including sun spots and age spots
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Benign brown pigments
- Dilated blood vessels
- Redness caused by broken capillaries (telangiectasia)
How Does an IPL Photofacial Work?
The skincare professionals at Nova perform photo rejuvenation with a Palomar StarLux IPL system, which uses specialized hand pieces to filter light from different parts of the spectrum. Each band of the spectrum has a wavelength that is ideal for different treatments, such as sun spot removal and vessel clearance.
Your IPL specialist will select an optimal wavelength to target the hemoglobin and melanin in your skin, ultimately clearing away any vascular or pigmented lesions. Once the light is absorbed as heat by the lesion, the lesion disappears. Photo rejuvenation is effective on the face, arms, chest, and other large body areas, with minimal downtime. For maximum results we recommend a series of treatments to achieve complete clearance from sunspots, Rosacea and vessels.
Not only do our IPL photofacials in Orlando remove imperfections, but they also improve and tighten the skin by working beneath the epidermis to increase collagen. Some patients have noticed an improvement with acne breakouts, as well.
What is the Recovery Process for an IPL Photofacial?
Immediately after an IPL photofacial, you can expect a mild sunburn-like sensation that usually lasts from two to 24 hours. The downtime for our photo rejuvenation patients in Orlando is minimal, darkening of pigmented areas lighten within 7-10 days on the face and 2-3 weeks on the body.
What are Orlando IPL Photofacial Costs?
