IPL (Photo Facial) Treatment

Skin Joy Dermatology offers a safe and effective way of treating skin due to sun damage and skin trauma. 

Why IPL (Photo Facial) treatment?

The Cutera® Limelight IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) is a Photo Facial laser that targets brown spots and redness to effectively even your skin tone. As we age, imperfections occur in our skin due to sun damage and skin trauma. Limelight IPL is a powerful technology that uses a superior type of IPL to rejuvenate your skin. We use the Limelight IPL Photo Facial on the face and neck for treating conditions such as uneven skin tone, brown spots, spider veins, and redness from the sun and environmental damage.  

How does it work?

As the pulses of light pass through the skin’s surface, collagen production is stimulated and blood flow to broken capillaries is reduced. With the ability to deliver precise amounts of light to only the areas that need to be treated, pigments, redness and discolored areas will diffuse as your skin regenerates, revealing a more youthful, brighter complexion.
