What is an IPL photofacial?
An IPL photofacial uses intense pulsed light to minimize the appearance of a number of age-related skin conditions, including:
- Age spots and uneven pigment
- Sun damage
- Spider veins
During this laser treatment, your skin receives intense pulsed light in multiple wavelengths. This targets areas of darker pigmentation below the surface of your skin. The IPL energy converts into thermal energy to safely destroy the unwanted pigment.
The pigment in your skin disperses and flakes off to reveal younger, more radiant skin. An IPL photofacial is gentle on your skin, but powerful on pigment.
What happens during a Thermage treatment?
The Thermage system is the #1 skin-tightening treatment in the world. It addresses multiple signs of aging in a matter of minutes using radio-frequency energy. It’s noninvasive and it can smooth, tighten, and contour skin for a younger-looking, rejuvenated appearance
In a single treatment session that lasts just 30-90 minutes, Thermage delivers RF energy below the surface of your skin. This ignites your body’s healing response so you begin producing new collagen cells. It also causes your skin to contract, resulting in a tighter, firmer appearance.
After treatment, your skin continues to produce new collagen so wrinkles and saggy skin appear smoother and firmer for 1-2 years. Dr. Walls can perform Thermage treatment in your face or other areas of your body where you’d like to tighten skin, such as your abdomen and around your knees. Radio-frequency energy is gentle enough to use on the delicate skin around your eyes, yet highly effective at tightening skin for a smoother, more youthful appearance.
