- Photodamage (sun damage)
- Pigmented lesions

IPL treatments are most commonly performed on the face, but they may also be performed on other areas, such as the chest and hands.
What Could I Expect from a Treatment Session?
IPL treatment sessions, or photofacials, are outpatient treatments performed in the comfort of our Illinois offices. During the treatment experience, light wavelengths are delivered to the specific area. This light stimulates collagen production, encouraging the natural growth of new tissues. The light may effectively minimize the appearance of various blemishes or other imperfections.
There is little to no discomfort associated with the process, but you may experience a mild warmth. IPL photofacials are relatively short outpatient treatments. There is no set downtime associated with the experiences, and you should be able to resume your normal daily activities. Skin may be slightly irritated or tender in the treatment area.
Results achieved with IPL services will vary for each person and concern addressed. Many begin to enjoy initial results shortly after treatment, but results may gradually improve. A series of regular treatments is often recommended to promote and preserve optimal results.
Am I a Good Candidate?
IPL treatments area diverse range of treatments that may be beneficial for most generally healthy adults. Although these treatments may be suitable for a variety of skin tones and types, they are often most effective on lighter skin tones.
