IPL Photofacial in Smyrna, TN

Give Your Skin A Photo Finish

For non-surgical skin rejuvenation that is non-invasive and backed by results, light-based therapies can restore health and natural beauty to your skin without extensive downtime. At Cedar Grove Aesthetics, we offer a wide range of skin rejuvenation options, including IPL photo facials for targeted, effective treatments.

What Are IPL Photofacials?

IPL, or intense pulsed light, is an innovative therapy that uses specially designed light pulses that can be customized to patients’ unique skincare needs for more precise and effective treatment. It is a multi-step process:

  • The area being treated is thoroughly cleansed in order to aid in its absorption ability
  • The treated area is then exposed to a specific wavelength of light. The photosensitive medication is activated, destroying damaged skin cells and targeting the hemoglobin and melanin in vascular lesions. The light energy is converted to heat during this process, clearing the lesions from the skin.

What Do IPL Photofacials Treat?

This non-invasive skin rejuvenation option can be used on multiple areas of the body including the face, arms, chest, and other body areas. IPL photofacials can help correct multiple skin imperfections, such as:

  • Sun damage
  • Brown spots
  • Age spots
  • Dilated blood vessels
  • Facial redness caused by broken capillaries
  • Rosacea

What Can I Expect During Treatment?

Protective eyewear will be supplied for you in order to shield your eyes from the intense light. This procedure is typically well-tolerated and generally no topical numbing creams are needed, but these options are available here on hand.

Is There Any Recovery?

A mild redness akin to a slight sunburn typically develops after treatment but should subside within a day. The skin continues to heal itself after the procedure is over, with full effects becoming evident over a matter of several days. Depending on your individual condition, multiple treatment sessions may be required.

No Need To Show Your Spots

The appearance of brown spots on the skin is called hyperpigmentation and can occur in all kinds of skin. A result of genetic factors and sun exposure, these pigmented bits of skin can be an indication of aging, but they do not have to be permanent! Through treatments with lasers, chemical peels, exfoliation techniques, and medical-grade skin care products we are happy to assist you in achieving the toned skin of your dreams. Please call us to discuss your options and schedule a complimentary consultation.
