What Is IPL?

When you are bothered by how your complexion appears because of sun damage or dark spots, Vita Nova Anti-Aging and Rejuvenation Clinic can perform a skin consultation at our San Antonio, TX office to see if you qualify for intense pulsed light (IPL) therapy. An IPL photofacial is a skin rejuvenation treatment for adults with hyperpigmentation concerns on their neck and face. Board-certified internist Dr. Francisco Cardona uses Alma's Harmony® XL PRO, which produces intense wavelengths of light that heat the skin to start the natural regeneration process and boost collagen production. In time, you should begin to see a healthier complexion with an improved tone and fewer dark spots.

How Does IPL Work?

An IPL photofacial is conducted inside our San Antonio, TX office in around 20 – 30 minutes in our minor procedures room if no other treatments are performed. To start the photofacial, your technician will wash and dry your skin before shielding your eyes with protective goggles. The IPL photofacial is performed using a Harmony XL PRO's handheld wand that passes over the skin while emitting light energy pulses. While most patients may have mild discomfort throughout the process, it's usually tolerable given the quick treatment time so no anesthesia is needed. After the procedure, your skin may feel a bit tender or appear red, but this reaction should go away within a day.
