Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) Photofacial uses high energy light waves to eliminate or reduce facial wrinkles, rosacea, moderate acne scars, and fine lines. For the right candidate, skin texture will be improved, discolorations are eliminated, and pore size will be reduced. Also, there will be production of new collagen.
