Improve unwanted skin conditions with our intense pulsed light (IPL) photofacial skin rejuvenation treatments. This broad spectrum of intense pulsed light is very popular for the face, neck, chest, and hands, which are the areas most frequently exposed to sunlight and other harsh environmental factors.
What happens during an IPL treatment?
Before your IPL photofacial treatment in Bryn Mawr, your face will be cleansed and prepped, and you’ll be given protective eyewear to keep your eyes safe from the bright flashes of light. We will also apply a cool gel to help keep your skin comfortable. Once you’re ready, the IPL handheld device will glide over the damaged skin, emitting powerful pulses of light deeply into the skin to treat it. The pain level is similar to that of a small pinch, or a hot rubber band being snapped on the skin — very tolerable.
The Venus Versa applicator also includes a cooling feature that helps keep discomfort at a minimum during treatment. Sessions typically take 15-30 minutes, but the duration of each treatment session will vary depending on the size of the area to be treated and the specific settings used for each patient. The more damaged the skin is, the more treatments will be needed — and the total number of treatment sessions depends on the patient’s goals for aesthetic improvement. Our aestheticians will help make an individualized plan for your skin.
