What is the IPL Procedure?
The IPL Photofacial procedure uses the Intense pulse light treatment(IPL) to gently treat skin irregularities and improve skin color. The process targets the melanin in the discolorations, using a pulse of light that causes the melanin to break down. The surrounding, unaffected cells will then regenerate new, healthy cells.
While it is safe to use on nearly any body part, it is most popular on the face, neck, chest, and hands.
