What is IPL?
If you struggle with how your complexion looks because of sun damage or dark spots, Symphony Medical Spa can perform a skin examination at our Tooele, UT office to determine if you qualify for IPL (intense pulsed light) therapy. An IPL photofacial is a treatment that rejuvenates the skin for adult women and men with hyperpigmentation issues on their face and neck. A photofacial is nonsurgical and noninvasive while being highly effective, producing impressive outcomes. Board-certified physician Dr. Carolyn Forbes uses the Harmony XL PRO to send intense pulses of light energy that warm the skin cells to set off the natural healing process and increase collagen production. Over time, you should see a healthier complexion with a more even tone and decreased dark spots.
How Does IPL Work?
IPL works deep within the layers of your skin to improve many complexion concerns (particularly brown lesions and sun spots) with little or no recovery needed. The best candidates for IPL at Symphony Medical Spa may have a combination of problems with their complexion, including rosacea, sun damage, hyperpigmentation (brown spots), rough texture, visible pores, redness, melasma, sun and age spots, or spider veins. Dr. Carolyn Forbes will examine your complexion to determine if you will benefit from an IPL photofacial at your private consultation. To start the photofacial, your technician will clean and dry the skin to be treated before covering your eyes with covers. The photofacial is administered using a handheld device that will pass over the skin while emitting light energy pulses. While many patients may have some discomfort throughout the IPL, it is generally bearable for the short treatment length.
