What is IPL?
If you struggle with how your skin looks because of sun damage or dark spots, AestheticFX can offer you a skin analysis at our Frisco, TX Med Spa to determine if you'll benefit from IPL (intense pulsed light) therapy. An IPL photofacial is a treatment that rejuvenates the skin for adult men and women with hyperpigmentation concerns on their faces and neck. A photofacial may be a noninvasive procedure; however, it can be highly effective and create impressive results. Beverly Farris, MSN, APRN, ACNP-BC, FNP-C sends intense pulses of light that raise the temperature of the skin cells to set off the natural regeneration process and increase collagen production. As the added nutrients take effect, you should see a healthier layer with an improved tone and decreased spots.
"I wish I could give 10 stars because Beverly is absolutely amazing and provided the best hair removal experience I've had to date. Beverly provided laser hair removal on full legs and the laser used is painless, quick and feels like a deep tissue massage with heat (I actually fell asleep). The results were immediately visible. After my first session I shaved approximately every two weeks, but it was truly not needed. I have had multiple laser hair removal sessions from my face to my feet at various facilities and I cannot express enough that this was by far my best experience with laser hair removal. I will be a returning customer."- K.M. / Google / Sep 19, 2021
How Does IPL Work?
IPL is done inside our Frisco, TX Med Spa in about 20 – 30 minutes in one of our treatment rooms if performed alone. To prepare for the treatment, the technician will clean and dry the skin to be treated before covering your eyes with goggles. The photofacial is performed using a handheld wand that passes over the skin while emitting pulses of light energy. While most patients will feel some discomfort during the photofacial, it's generally bearable given the short treatment time.
Even if you didn't worry much about your skin when you were a child, but now that environmental damage such as spots and other blemishes are appearing, you now may be interested in how to correct your skin. We invite you to learn more about IPL treatments by contacting our Frisco, TX Med Spa and making an appointment for a skin assessment with Beverly Farris. Thanks to photofacial treatments at AestheticFX, we can reach the deeper layers of damaged skin to help bring back a youthful glow and a clear complexion.
