Intense Pulsed Light Therapy (IPL), also known as a photofacial, fotofacial, or BBL, is a non-invasive treatment that uses multiple wavelengths of light to penetrate the layers of the skin to help in a variety of ways. The various wavelengths of light target hyperpigmentation (brown spots, freckles, liver spots), redness (blood vessels, rosacea), and sun damage (fine lines and sun spots). The side effect of IPL is that it generates heat to naturally stimulate and generate collagen. As a result, your skin will have a smoother, healthier appearance.
An IPL Photofacial, often referred to as a Photofacial, can help correct a number of complexion issues, such as Hyperpigmentation, and can reduce the appearance of freckles, rosacea, sun damage and other problems. It can help with skin texture, make skin look more youthful and refreshed, and it can eliminate blotches. At Refresh Dermatology in Houston, Texas Dr. Suneel Chilukuri and his team recommend this aesthetic procedure for a number of patients. We get great results and feedback about how patients feel about their appearance after this treatment.
