Use today’s technology for tomorrow’s rejuvenated skin!

At RewindMD, our team of professionals in Solana Beach, California, are available to help patients achieve their clearest, most beautiful skin. To do this, Dr. Scott Gillin may recommend a certain treatment known as intense pulsed light therapy or IPL photo facials. Let’s look at this treatment and what you can expect from it.

What is an IPL photofacial?

Dr. Gillin describes the IPL photofacial as a facial treatment designed to use light energy to diminish certain imperfections on the skin, including:

  • Rosacea
  • Flushing/redness
  • Broken blood vessels
  • Sun damage
  • Brown spots and freckles
  • Hyperpigmentation

What are the benefits of intense pulsed light therapy?

Intense pulsed light therapy, or IPL, has many advantages. It:

  • Provides treatment of various issues with a single treatment session
  • It does not require patients to take any social downtime, as more aggressive treatments might
  • Allows patients to see results after a single treatment session
  • It is one of the most effective pigmentation treatments for the skin available on the market today

What can I expect from my IPL photofacial treatment session?

First, our care team will cleanse the skin to remove debris or cosmetics from the skin’s surface. Then, a topical cream is applied to numb the skin and improve patient comfort. The IPL device is run along the skin to penetrate it and improve its health and appearance. The skin is then cleansed again, and patients are given aftercare instructions to follow to maintain the skin’s health and reduce the risk of complications.
