Services--Skin Care: Photofacial Treatments (IPL)

Smooth Solutions Medical Aesthetics offers Prolite photofacial treatments (also known as "IPL" or "Intense Pulse Light") to address skin rejuvenation, age spots, active acne, and dark pigment.

Prolite offers a non-invasive, safe, and effective solution to skin aging by restoring a youthful appearance known as "photo rejuvenation."

Photo rejuvenation addresses skin damage without disrupting the skin's surface and simultaneously treats a wide range of facial problems to improve the texture and complexion of the skin.

  • Color and Tone: Prolite IPL targets hemoglobin and melanin to remove brown and red spots. The light harmlessly travels through your skin and selectively targets redness and pigment that will gradually be shed by your body. Small spider veins and flat "age" spots also respond very well.

    The IPL procedure provides the best results when followed up with microdem abrasion after about one week.
  • Sun Damage: There is no downtime when you reverse sun damage with IPL. Brown spots, broken capillaries, large pores and rosacea on the face, chest, shoulders, and hands can all be addressed with IPL.

IPL works by emitting wavelengths of light that are absorbed by brown spots, veins, and red spots. These lesions are gently heated and destroyed.

The procedure typically takes about 20 to 30 minutes to treat the entire face. Complications are rare, with skin lightening or darkening occurring in less than 1% of cases.

It is advisable to wear sunblock when in the sun during the month following the IPL treatment.
