Have stubborn dark spots from a summer in the sun? Photofacials are the perfect solution! Photofacials, also known as IPL (Intense Pulse Light), correct damage caused by those penetrating sun rays. This laser treatment specifically targets pigment in the skin, so it is ideal for lighter skin types with hyperpigmentation concerns. After treatment, patients will notice that their pigmented lesions will continue to darken over the next 1-2 weeks and will naturally slough off like coffee grounds when they reach the surface of the skin. This photorejuvenation process will give an instant tightening effect and smooth complexion. Patient results may vary and more than one treatment may be necessary to reach the desired outcome. At Desert Bloom Plastic Surgery, we offer single treatments or a series of 4 which is typically recommended by our Master Aesthetician. What else can IPL correct?
- Vascular lesions such as broken capillaries or telangiectasias
- Rosacea and cystic acne
