Posted on May 14, 2018 by Ella Fedonenko

Are you looking for a special gift for your Mom for Mother’s Day, her birthday, or any special occasion? Want a gift that will surprise and delight your mother? Treating your Mom to a photofacial is a gift that can be truly life-changing.


What is a Photofacial?

An IPL photofacial is a cutting-edge non-invasive treatment for people who want beautiful, younger-looking skin. Because photofacials treat skin that has been affected by the sun, the procedures are especially popular in fair weather cities like Los Angeles.

The “photo” in the word “photofacial” refers to light. Photofacials use intense pulse light to remove signs of aging, including sun spots and broken capillaries. The treatment also increases collagen production, which makes the skin look smoother.


How Does a Photofacial Work?

A doctor or a highly trained aesthetic technician will use a device that emits intense pulsed light during the treatment. This device is called IPL. Areas of the skin that have darker pigments, such as sun spots, absorb more of the intense pulsed light than other areas of the skin. Then, the body’s own natural healing processes will eventually remove those areas that have absorbed the most light.


How Long Does It Take?

Patients usually see significant results after the first session. A full course of treatment is usually three to six sessions, spaced three weeks apart.


Will There Be Any Downtime with IPL Treatments?

There’s no downtime. After a session, you can immediately return to your normal activities.
