IPL Photo Facial Tampa
IPL stands for intense pulsed light. In an IPL photofacial, broad-spectrum light is directly applied to the skin to minimize the appearance of imperfections. At TLC Medical in Tampa, we offer IPL photofacial treatment to help patients achieve smooth, even, and radiant skin.
How Do IPL Photofacials Work?
IPL photofacials work to improve the appearance of your skin by targeting imperfections with the precise application of broad-spectrum light. The red blood cells and melanin in the skin absorb the intense, pulsed light. The light reaches the deeper layers of the skin, purposefully causing damage to the areas of imperfection. This allows the skin to more effectively absorb the damaged melanin while increasing blood flow and stimulating collagen production. These effects lead to a healthier, more youthful appearance.
For IPL photofacials at TLC Medical in Tampa, we use the Cutera xeo system, an advanced laser, and light-based system. This machine is a leading choice in non-surgical skin treatments and ensures that you receive the highest quality of skin care.
What Can IPL Photofacials Be Used to Treat?
IPL photofacials are most commonly used to improve the appearance of hyperpigmentation and scarring, including acne scars. After an IPL photofacial, you’ll notice that your skin has a brighter, more even appearance.
That said, IPL photofacials can be helpful in the treatment of several other common skin concerns, including:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Sun-damaged skin
- Broken blood vessels
- Spider veins
Your healthcare provider at TLC Medical in Tampa can help you determine if an IPL photofacial will help you achieve your cosmetic goals.
What Are the Benefits of IPL Photofacials?
IPL photofacials are an entirely non-invasive treatment method for common skin concerns. Unlike cosmetic surgery, an IPL photofacial doesn’t involve needles or incisions and won’t cause scarring. This makes it a safer, faster, and more convenient option for patients seeking a more even skin tone.
Little to No Recovery Time
Little to no time is required for recovery after an IPL photofacial. Since this type of facial uses light to improve the skin — not scalpels or needles — you can return to your regular routine immediately after treatment.
IPL photofacials work by stimulating the skin’s natural healing process. The result of this is a brighter, smoother complexion that looks healthy and genuine, rather than the often artificial-looking results of cosmetic surgery. Additionally, you’ll see visible results after just one treatment session.
