Get Fresher, Smoother Facial Skin with an IPL Photofacial

The face is under near constant exposure to the sun, wind, and other harsh environmental elements. This makes it one of the most vulnerable features when it comes to skin damage and premature signs of aging. It is very common for people to experience an increase in pigmentation in the skin and to develop freckles, age spots, and other imperfections. One thing that can be effective in addressing these flaws is laser facial treatment. Dr. Amir Moradi offers IPL photofacial laser face treatment at his San Diego cosmetic surgery practice to help patients improve the tone, texture, and pigmentation of the skin, and refresh the overall appearance of the face.

What is an IPL Photofacial?

The IPL photofacial laser face treatment uses intense pulses of light to target pigmentation in the skin, penetrating into the deeper layers of skin in order to constrict the blood vessels to reduce redness and stimulate natural collagen production (which, over time, will serve as a natural dermal filler). This is a non-invasive treatment that causes only minimal discomfort, requires minimal downtime for recovery, and provides patients with fast and effective results. A typical IPL photofacial treatment lasts just 15-30 minutes. Most patients experience significant improvement in the pigmentation of the skin, as well as a dramatic reduction of redness, age spots, or other pigmentation concerns after just a single photofacial treatment. However, when necessary, treatment can be repeated until desired results are achieved.

IPL Photofacial Candidates

The IPL photofacial is a popular laser face treatment because it can address so many of the cosmetic concerns that tend to affect the facial skin. Patients who are experiencing any of the following aesthetic imperfections may be ideal candidates for a photofacial:

  • Red, blotchy skin or rosacea (also ideal for V-Beam laser treatment)
  • Sun damage
  • Age spots
  • Birth marks
  • Large pores
  • Small visible veins
  • Unwanted facial hair

An IPL photofacial can significantly improve any of these conditions. Ideal candidates are those who have fair, untanned skin. A photofacial may alter the pigmentation of the skin in those who have naturally dark, tanned skin, so these individuals should discuss this possibility with Dr. Moradi to determine if the photofacial is an appropriate treatment option for their skin type.

Additional Treatments

The IPL photofacial is just one on the many laser treatments offered at Moradi MD. Laser skin treatments can greatly improve the tone and pigmentation of skin on the face, hands, abdomen, and other areas of the body. Patients who are looking to enhance the appearance of the skin without undergoing surgical treatment should discuss these laser treatment options with Dr. Moradi; he is happy to answer any questions that individuals may have, as well as personalize a treatment plan that is most likely to address each patent’s unique needs and desires.
