Why Get IPL Photofacial ?
Skin is the largest organ in the body and is known to be a reflection of your overall health and wellbeing. Here at Salas Plastic Surgery we take place great importance on skin health and we believe facials are the best place to start.
IPL stands for Intense Pulse Light. With this powerful modality we are able to successfully treat skin conditions such rosacea and hyperpigmentation.
IPL Photofacial is a simple treatment that involves having short bursts of Intense light applied to the skin in a systematic manner. Most patients notice minimal pain as the application involves a cooling element designed for optimal comfort.
During your procedure your skin will be cleansed and prepped for the treatment. Once the treatment is complete your skincare therapist will apply a calming gel to aid in recovery.
Preparation & Recovery
Before your procedure you will be asked to stop all retinol or vitamin a products for 24 - 48 hours.
After your treatment you will be told to apply SPF daily to prevent sun damage. Only use gentle skincare products after this treatment. A few days after your treatment you should expect to have some light scabbing and flaking of the skin. You must not pick these scabs or you run the risk of scarring. Microdermabrasion treatment is recommended 3 weeks after treatment.
