When patients are interested in enhancing their skin, they may find there are several benefits to IPL photofacial treatment. Plano, TX area patients are encouraged to learn about these and other skin enhancement treatments that are available in our state-of-the-art dermatological practice.

What are IPL photofacial treatments?

IPL stands for Intense Pulsed Light. This treatment utilizes bursts of light energy to penetrate deep into the skin. This photorejuvenation service can be adjusted to certain wavelengths of light, depending on the specific needs of the patient. The result is clearer skin and better texture and tone overall when used on the facial area. This is the most common area of the body that is treated with IPL photofacials.

What can IPL photofacials be used for?

This treatment can be used in a variety of ways, and can treat:
  • Rosacea
  • Acne
  • Freckles
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Broken capillaries
  • Scarring
  • Sun damage
  • And much more!

What can I expect during my appointment?

Once patients have consulted with Drs. Achtman and McConnell to make sure they are appropriate candidates for treatment, they then undergo their photofacial session. Patients relax in the treatment chair as the skin is cleansed, and a special device is used to administer the concentrated bursts of light directly onto the skin. Treatment times are typically around twenty minutes and require no downtime or recovery afterwards.

How often should I have treatments?

To see the best results, we often encourage patients to book a package of three to five sessions, and then evaluate the skin from there to see if more treatments are required for the desired results.
