Q1 ) What type of pigment can be treated with IPL PhotoFacial?
IPLPhotoFacial is designed to treat browns and reds. Sun damage, age spots and freckles respond very well to IPL PhotoFacial treatments. It is always recommended to be seen by a dermatologist to have your sun damage, age spots and freckles assessed to be sure they are benign. IPL PhotoFacial can also treat rosacea and facial vessels. Regardless of whether you are treating browns or reds a series of treatments will be necessary to achieve the best results.

Q3 ) How long does an IPL PhotoFacial treatment take?
Q4 ) Is IPL PhotoFacial safe during pregnancy?
Q5 ) Is IPL PhotoFacial permanent?
It permanently removes the treated pigment, however if you have continued sun exposure new sun damage is likely to form. Once you complete a series of treatments it is recommended that you return 1-2 times per year to maintain results. If you are using IPL for Rosacea the same will apply to keep your symptoms at bay.
Q6 ) Does IPL PhotoFacial remove hair?
While you may see a temporary reduction in hair in the area treated with IPL, it is not permanent. The energy from the IPL will stunt the hair growth, but it cannot deliver enough thermodynamic energy to permanently deaden the hair follicle.
