If you’re looking to treat acne, rosacea, vascular blemishes, pigmented lesions, or other skin issues on your face, neck, and body, IPL Photofacial in Fort Worth could be the solution for you. This cutting-edge technology uses light wavelengths known as Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) or Broad Band Light (BBL) to penetrate the skin’s layers and target pigmented areas without causing damage to the surrounding skin. Unlike laser treatments, IPL can treat a larger surface area and penetrate the dermal (second layer of skin) without harming the epidermis (top layer of skin).
A photofacial performed by licensed aesthetician Jennifer Geyer can help restore your youth by resolving hyperpigmentation, sun damage, and weathering of the face. You should not have to feel self-conscious about your skin’s appearance. Instead, consider undergoing a non-surgical procedure at our office to improve and liven your skin.
IPL is non-invasive, and no injections or incisions are necessary. During an IPL photofacial at Dr. Steele’s Fort Worth practice, light waves are passed over the treated areas to reduce the appearance of unwanted blemishes, facial hair, acne scars, and improve the overall skin texture. The heat generated by the beam of light destroys pigmented areas such as age spots, freckles, and other blemishes.
Each photofacial treatment lasts about 30-75 minutes, and you will be given an eye shield to protect your vision. Jennifer will also apply a cool gel on your skin to reduce discomfort, and cool air will be circulated over the skin to prevent over-heating.
While there are some side effects to IPL photofacials, most are mild and do not last long. Examples include mild blistering, bruising, or redness similar to a mild sunburn. If you are concerned about potential side effects and risks, reach out to our clinic and ask our team about IPL photofacial technology.
Our Fort Worth clinic typically recommends three to five IPL photofacial treatments, depending on the amount of damage to the skin. Additionally, maintenance sessions are often needed after an initial session, as it usually takes three to six treatments, scheduled one month apart, to achieve complete results.
IPL procedures are commonly performed on areas of the body most exposed to sunlight, such as the face, neck, shoulders, back of the hands, and chest. Examples of conditions that can be treated by our qualified plastic surgeon include:
