IPL Photofacials in Albany, NY

Rejuvenation with Light Therapy

Sun exposure and genetics can compromise our skin, contributing to wrinkles, blemishes, and hyperpigmentation. But what one form of light causes, another form of light can heal. Intense pulsed light therapy (IPL) can reverse numerous signs of aging and eliminate blemishes with just one session.

IPL photofacials subtract years from your appearance by reversing signs of aging, sun damage, freckles, varicose veins, and other skin ailments through a comfortable, minimally invasive method. Using The Spectrum laser, our technicians can personalize your treatment using four different filter options for optimal results. IPL photofacials are an all-in-one treatment for more radiant, glowing skin!

How IPL Treatment Works

Ultraviolet light from the sun can cause discolored skin cells to clump together. IPL photofacials use specific wavelengths of pulsating light to break up these clumps for good. As the heat from the light is absorbed by the skin, the blemishes will disperse and leave the surrounding skin untouched. 

Not only can IPL photofacials heal dark spots and blemishes, but they can also promote collagen and elastin production. The increase in collagen and elastin can tighten skin and restore a youthful complexion while improving texture too.

IPL Photofacial FAQs

IPL photofacials are a safe and comfortable treatment for most patients. At most, patients report a sensation of heat from the intense bursts of light. For your utmost comfort, we may apply a cooling gel to the treatment area.

You should notice results from your IPL photofacial within a week of your first appointment. Often, patients notice remarkable outcomes around 4-6 weeks after multiple sessions. At Skin By ASK, we can create a personalized plan for your IPL photofacial treatments to strengthen your ultimate results. Even so, most patients notice a remarkable difference after just one session

Once scattered, discolored skin cells (hyperpigmentation) are processed out of the body by your own natural lymphatic system. These blemishes will not grow back. That does not mean, however, that future exposure to UV light won’t cause new instances of hyperpigmentation in the same area. For the best results, a comprehensive skin care routine is recommended.
