What Are Blue Light Therapy & IPL Facials?

IPL photofacials and blue light therapy both use light therapy to treat a variety of skin issues.

IPL facials use intense pulses of light that penetrate deep into the skin that cause blood vessels and collagen below the skin’s surface to constrict, thereby reducing redness, pigmentation issues and age lines. The entire procedure usually takes about 30 minutes and is an effective and safe way to treat rosacea, hyperpigmentation, fine lines and sun damage.

Blue light uses similar light pulses as IPL facials but are mostly used to treat acne. For acne sufferers whose skin has become resistant to creams or pills, or for those whose skin reacts negatively to the often-harsh topical treatments.

It also uses narrow-band blue light that contains no UV light or lasers. The light kills the bacteria that causes acne and forms in the sebaceous cysts. It can be administered through several sessions of 30 minutes each. Most experience no pain and can go back to daily activity immediately.

What is the Icon™ MaxG?

The Icon™ MaxG provides Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) also called IPL photofacials. IPL treatments can treat a variety of skin imperfections on the face and body, including brown and red pigmentation such as sun damage, rosacea, hyperpigmentation, and spider veins. Pulses of high-energy light are sent into the skin layers, which causes the targeted tissue to gradually break down. The body’s natural healing process removes these cells and signals new cells and collagen to form in the area. Through this process, the skin achieves a more even texture, smoothing out wrinkles and other irregularities, as well as a more consistent pigment.

How long before I can expect results?

Most treatments can be completed in under 30 minutes with results becoming apparent over the course of 2 weeks. While beautiful results can often be achieved with just one treatment, most patients will require 3 to 6 sessions to achieve their desired outcome.
