Would you like to renew your skin? If facials and topical creams aren’t giving your skin a fresh start, it’s time to ask about a Photofacial. Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) or Photofacial, can help men and women of all ages achieve a better complexion. This advanced IPL technology is offered by Dr. Manuel Peña at his Naples, FL practice for skin rejuvenation.
Photofacial (IPL) specifically targets skin pigment issues, like dark or brown spots, age spots, and red spots, among others in order to rejuvenate your skin. IPL treatments rely on a process known as selective photothermolysis. Dr. Peña uses IPL to treat the following skin conditions:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Scars (acne. hypertrophic, etc.)
- Sun damage
- Spider veins
- Rosacea (treats skin redness)
- Skin hyperpigmentation
- Broken blood vessels
How Does IPL Work?
IPL uses a full spectrum of light wavelengths, sending safe light energy to break up skin pigmentation (melanin) which is damaged and then breaks up and is absorbed by the skin. IPL treatments improve skin texture, clearing up a distressed complexion by increasing collagen and firming skin tissue. The avoidance of sun (no suntanning) in weeks before the procedure ensures a big contrast between the targeted pigmented/vascular areas and the natural skin. IPL is fast, gentle, painless*, and effective.
The many benefits of skin rejuvenation with IPL include:
- Reduced risk of pigmentation changes and scarring
- Produces younger-looking skin
- Little to no pain or downtime*
A consultation with Dr. Peña or the La-Piel Spa professional staff is the only way to know for sure if an IPL treatment is right for you. During your consultation, Dr. Peña will discuss your physical and emotional health, your expectations for treatment, the risks and benefits of IPL, and the cost of treatment, so you can make a fully informed decision about whether IPL is your best solution.
