An IPL Photo Facial Will Zap Those Brown Spots

Intense pulsed light, or IPL photo facials, are a proven treatment for broken capillaries (spider veins), the brown “age spots” caused by sun damage, redness, acne, light acne scars and Rosacea.  Photo facials also refine and tighten large pores, and stimulate collagen production, for plumper skin and a fresher look!   The IPL photo facial utilizes a non-invasive, high-intensity light that penetrates just below the skin’s surface; it damages the melanin that makes up brown age spots, or the blood vessels that create broken capillaries.  After a treatment, your brown spots will first be darker, and then gradually disappear.  One of NuVo professionals will consult with you regarding your aesthetic goals, and whether an IPL photo facial is a good option for you. Three to six treatments spaced a month apart are generally needed for the best results.

You should avoid direct sun exposure for a few days before a treatment, and abrasive products such as those with Retin-A, retinols, alpha hydroxys and glycolic, for up to five days after treatment, as they can increase sensitivity and the risk of side effects.
