IPL Photofacial Laser Facial

IPL Photofacial Laser Facial in Miami
No More Make Up – Lighten, Brighten and Even Your Skin Tone!

Have you always wanted flawless glowing skin? Now its possible with IPL Photofacial Laser Facial in Miami. As our skin ages it begins to develop broken capillaries, sun damage, smoke damage, mild acne scars, enlarged pores, dull complexion, uneven pigmentation, freckles, rosacea/red flushed skin, liver spots, fine lines and wrinkles.

Prevention is the best treatment for pigmented lesions. However, it is possible to reverse the damage with laser treatments as well as chemical peels. Breakthrough IPL photofacial technology uses high intensity pulses of visible light to improve the appearance and texture of the skin. Our Syneron IPL Photofacial with SR and SRA hand pieces uses patient technology which combines intense pulse light and radio frequency energy. This allows the laser light to penetrate to the deeper layers of the skin and break down the pigmentation much faster then traditional IPL devices. The RF energy also stimulates collagen production to improve the overall elasticity of the skin. Unlike other IPL systems, the SR and SRA hand pieces offer a wide range of settings which are safe for patients with both lighter to darker skin tones.

How does IPL Photofacial Laser Facial work?
IPL stands for intense pulse light. This is a non-ablative procedure which means that it does not damage the surface of the skin. The intense light is delivered to the deeper dermis layers of the skin. The superficial epidermis is left untouched. The light energy causes collagen and blood vessels below the epidermis to constrict. This reduces redness and fine lines in as little as 30 minutes.  IPL also stimulates the production of collagen, although it is not as effective as our Laser Skin Tightening treatment.

The laser light heats up the target chromophore – melanin. Which allows your body to naturally reabsorb the pigment. With each session, the results of IPL. photorejuvenation become more and more pronounced pronounced. So don’t wait to reveal your smooth, beautiful and glowing skin!


Am I a good candidate for IPL Photofacial Laser Facial?
IPL Photofacial is ideal for skin types I-IV. Refer to the Fitzpatrick Skin Type chart below to help you determine your skin type. Generally, clients who have a lighter skin tone are able to tolerate more laser energy. Darker skin tones, such as those of Hispanic, Middle Eastern and Asian descent are also good candidates for IPL  Photofacial Miami treatments. Clients of African American descent are usually not good candidates. Male clients who are seeking photofacial IPL in Miami should keep in mind that the treatment over hairy areas may result in patchy hair loss. To avoid patchiness our laser specialists generally treat above the beard line.

How many IPL Photofacial Laser Facial treatments will I need?
In order to achieve the best results with an IPL Photofacial in Miami Avalon Medical Spa recommends a series of 3-5 treatments. The appointments are usually done every four weeks. The exact amount of treatments depends on the severity of the sun damage and redness. With each treatment you should see a gradual improvement in the skin tone. It is also common that the results and response of the skin may be slightly different from treatment to treatment.


How do I prepare for an IPL Photofacial Laser Facial?
Avalon Medical Spa has performed thousands of IPL Photofacial facials in Miami. Our experience allows us to tell our patients that great results are also in your hands. We ask our clients to arrive for their photofacial IPL appointment without any make up. This will leave your skin without any access oil and make the photofacial so much more effective!


What do I need to avoid before and after IPL Photofacial Laser Facial?
The IPL Photofacail is attracted to the pigment and melanin that is in your skin. This means that if you recently had a tan, the laser will pick it up! Avoid any prolonged sun exposure at least two weeks prior to your first IPL Photofacail in Miami to avoid any complications. Certain creams such as Retin-A and antibiotics  increase the photocentivity of your skin. Avalon Medical Spa asks that you discontinue the use of such products at least two weeks prior to your IPL Photofacail appointment in Miami.


What can I expect during IPL Photofacial Laser Facial?
When you come in for your IPL Photofacial in Miami, our trained laser specialist will first cleanse the skin of any access oil and make up. Special eye shields are placed on your eyes to protect them from the laser light. Once the skin is clean, a cool gel is applied on the treatment area. The client will feel a smooth surface of the laser on the skin, followed by a pinching sensation and a series of light flashes. The photofacial usually feels like a slight stinging sensation very similar to the snapping of a rubber band.

In order to avoid any complications, Avalon Medical Spa uses conservative IPl Photofacial settings to establish a base line and see how your skin reacts. This allows us to prevent and avoid any risks that may be associated with IPL/Photofacial Miami treatments. Once the treatment is complete, the remaining gel is removed with a warm wash cloth. Avalon Medical Spa also uses a propriety gel that will help cool the skin by 10 degrees within three minutes of application. This gel and a broad spectrum SFP are applied immediately after the laser to avoid any post inflammatory pigmentation.


What are the risks with IPL Photofacial Laser Facial?
IPL Photofacial in Miami generally carries very few long term side effects and complications. Some of the short term side effects include redness, swelling and increased visibility of the broken capillaries. This usually subsides within a couple of hours after the IPL photofacail session.
Clients who are prone to acne may also experience some minor break outs after the treatment. This is best described as a cleansing process, since the heat from the IPL can trigger existing acne bacteria.
Some of the more severe IPL Photofacial side effects can include blistering, hyper-pigmentation and hypo-pigmentation. Although most likely, not permanent, these side effects can take up to a couple of months to heal. 


What can I do to avoid IPL Photofacial Laser Facial complications?
Honestly goes a long way when it comes to being safe with any laser treatment. Please be honest with your laser specialist about any sun exposure that you may have had in the past month. It is much better to wait then deal with pigmentation, blisters or burns. Disclose all medical conditions and medications to avoid any contraindications as well. Avoid any activity that will elevate your body temperature for 48 hours after the IPL Photofacial treatment. This includes, working out, hot yoga, facials, massage, steam rooms, saunas, extremely hot showers, beach ect.


What to expect after IPL Photofacial Laser Facial?
IPL Photofacial Laser Facial treatments target the deeper layers of the skin so most clients are able to return to their regular activities immediately after the treatment. Post treatment redness that is similar to a sunburn is common for a few hours after treatment. Some patients may experience a “peppering” effect of the skin which usually clears up within a week resulting in a smooth even complexion. The peppering effect refers to the temporary darkening of the pigmented lesions. The lesions may become darker and scab off on their own in about a week.
