IPL Photofacial is an excellent therapy for erasing freckles and mild sun damage. It’s also a salient way to reduce light brown spots, red spots, and irregular pigmentation of the neck, face, and chest. Lentigines or brown and red spots can fade away in just a few treatment sessions.
Everyone is different when it comes to results. However, most patients don’t require more than 4 to 6 treatment sessions. You may require occasional maintenance sessions for keeping the skin looking healthy and young.
Rejuvenate Medical Spa, led by board certified physician Dr. Bijan Farah, provides IPL Photofacial Broadband Light (BBL) skin care treatments to patients in Encino, Sherman Oaks, San Fernando, Calabasas, Woodland Hills, Tarzana, Los Angeles, CA, and surrounding locations.
IPL Photofacial for Red and Brown Spots
You may notice an immediate darkening of the treatment area when treating hyperpigmentation (brown spots) or melasma (red spots). This is a common phenomenon and is nothing to worry about. Brown pigment present within the upper skin layers causes this temporary darkening.
Darkened area may begin to fade away in just 7 to 14 days. You may start to notice superficial brown spots lighten around this time as well. You should know that it will take more than one treatment session for the spots to vanish completely.
The type of spots being treated and the skin area determines the fading of hyperpigmentation. Pigment located within the deeper skin layers may darken because of excess pigmentation after the initial treatment session. Your treatment provider will recommend a series of treatment sessions for improving brown spots and deeper pigment issues. This would be done at a gap of one month for producing healthier skin with fewer dark spots and discoloration.
You may not be able to erase all discoloration and spots. However, you would get significantly lighter skin with an improvement in overall skin health.
Procedure for Melasma Removal
It is a complex and time-consuming process for treating melasma since pigmentation is present in the deeper skin layer. The skill and expertise of the treatment provider for IPL therapy will determine the results. This makes it important to visit a medical spa expert or licensed aesthetician. The only way for you to attain desirable results is if you get the treatment performed by someone who knows how to operate the equipment.
IPL Treatment Results
Improvement will be noticeable after a week of the first and subsequent IPL treatments. You will notice complete results only after 3 to 6 months and a series of IPL treatments spaced a month apart. The goal of your treatment provider will be to offer steady progress.
You will be recommended to schedule the therapy appointments a month apart since skin cells take about 30 days to turn. Your skin will get the time required for recovering and producing collagen. You should plan for a minimum of 5 sessions since IPL therapy builds on the previous treatment session. This will allow for clearer and more evenly toned skin.
