IPL Photo Facial Q & A

Vintage Wellness and Aesthetics

What is IPL?

IPL stands for intense pulsed light. An IPL photofacial, also spelled fotofacial, uses intense pulses of light to penetrate your skin and cause collagen and blood vessels to constrict, which reduces the appearance of fine lines and redness.

IPL for skin rejuvenation is among the most innovative techniques available at Vintage Wellness. It works particularly well if you have lighter-toned skin, though women and men with darker skin may also be good candidates.

IPL is gentle, safe, and leaves your skin radiant. This procedure is most beneficial for the following problems:

  • Sun damage
  • Large pores
  • Freckles
  • Wrinkles
  • Acne scars
  • Rosacea

IPL treatments are noninvasive and require no downtime. You may experience mild discomfort following the procedure, such as slight swelling and redness, but these symptoms dissipate quickly. Expect your results to become increasingly apparent in the days and weeks following the treatment.

What are Venus Versa™ treatments?

Venus Versa photofacial treatments are a precise and effective method to improve the look of sun-damaged skin. These treatments use IPL technology to deliver energy to the targeted areas without causing harm to the surrounding tissue.

You’re likely to be a good candidate if you want to correct any of the following:

  • Visible veins
  • Brown spots
  • Uneven pigmentation
  • Fine lines and wrinkles

The team at Vintage Wellness and Aesthetics are highly trained in using light and laser technology to deliver superior cosmetic results.
