INTENSE PULSE LIGHT
Limelight IPL, also known as Photo Rejuvenation or Photo Facial is a non-invasive procedure used to significantly reverse the signs of sun damage, hyperpigmentation, rosacea and tiny veins with no down time and minimal discomfort. Various areas such as face, neck, chest and hands may be treated. Targeted areas will darken and come to the skin surface. This will resolve in 1-2 weeks, resulting in a visibly improved complexion. Several treatments may be required to achieve optimal results.
PHOTO FACIAL Q&A
What is a photo facial?
A photo facial is one of the anti-aging treatments available at Giovinezza Laser and Skin Rejuvenation. For photo facials, the team uses the LimeLight IPL aesthetic device. This advanced device delivers intense pulses of light that penetrate the deep layers of your skin.
The light energy causes the blood vessels and proteins in your skin to contract while stimulating the production of collagen, which is a structural protein responsible for keeping your skin strong and elastic.
What can a photo facial treat?
Giovinezza Laser and Skin Rejuvenation provides photo facial treatments to address many beauty goals. The team uses the innovative device to reverse many of the visible signs of aging, including:
- Sun damage
- Visible veins
- Red, blotchy skin
Despite the name, a photo facial benefits more than just your face. The team also provides photo facial treatments for the neck, chest, and hands.
What can I expect during a photo facial?
Giovinezza Laser and Skin Rejuvenation customizes your photo facial treatment plan based on your skin care needs and beauty goals. The team reviews the details of your treatment at your consultation.
Your provider applies a cooling gel to your skin, which eases discomfort and helps improve the movement of the handpiece over the treatment area. Then, they activate the IPL device. You may feel a snapping sensation as the pulses of light target the deep layers of your skin.
The length of your photo facial depends on the size of the treatment area but takes an hour or less.
What happens after a photo facial?
Your skin darkens and peels after your photo facial. This healing process takes 1-2 weeks. Afterward, you should see a significant improvement in the look of your skin.
Despite the side effects of the photo facial, there’s no need for any downtime following your beauty treatment. The team, however, recommends you protect your sensitive skin from the sun with clothing, large sunglasses, and a wide-brimmed hat.
The Giovinezza Laser and Skin Rejuvenation team may recommend up to five photo facial treatments to get the best results.
