When will I see results?
Within one to three weeks, the darkened spots will flake off and fade. Diffuse redness or telangiectasia will decrease and your mottled complexion will improve.
Will the spots and redness reappear over time?
New brown spots, telangiectasia and redness may appear with new sun damage; however they too can be treated. Remember to always apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen when outdoors to minimize sun damage and the appearance of new spots and redness. Rosacea is chronic and cannot be “cured” with any laser or light source, however its appearance can be improved with this treatment.
Intense pulsed light (IPL) / Photofacial
The results for reducing the look of dark spots and rosacea have never been better, thanks to our Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) photofacials. Even if you’ve had them for longer than you’d like to admit, your redness and splotches can fade quickly with the help of this effective treatment.
What is Intense Pulsed Light?
Intense Pulsed Light, also known as photofacial, is a non-laser, precision light generator that minimizes skin discolorations associated with accumulated sun damage and age spots on the face and/or chest. Photofacials also help reduce the look of vascular problems, such as rosacea, while leaving the surface of the skin unharmed.
How it works:
Photofacials use intense pulsed light to target the pigment and redness in the lesion. This helps reduce unwanted discoloration and flushing better and faster.
The appearance of hyperpigmentation and redness are dramatically reduced with photofacial treatments.
