Understanding IPL Photofacial
IPLL Photofacial treatment is focused on helping patients treat their acne problems. This is a light-based treatment that targets acne causes under the skin without affecting the top layers of the epidermis.
Energy is absorbed by pigment cells turning it into heat when light pulses touch the skin. This heat can destroy freckles, spots, bacteria, and hair follicles that may cause the acne.
In just a few sessions, IPL treatment can clear the most severe cases of acne scarring and facial acne. IPL therapy is an easy and safe option for acne removal.
IPL Photofacial treatment makes use of three wavelengths or filters when dealing with acne – 420 nm or blue light, 560 nm of yellow light, and 590 nm of red light.

VI Peel is different from other traditional chemical peels. It creates a desirable anti-aging effect and eliminates most types of acne conditions. There are five rejuvenating acids present in this medium depth peel. It includes TCA, Retin-A, Salicylic Acid, Phenol, and Vitamin C.
The acids work in combination to create effective results. Creases and depressions in the skin get filled with new collagen fibers to create a smooth skin appearance. It also helps in treating acne.
Every VI Peel treatment is personalized for matching the specific skin tone and type of individual patients. It is also customized to match personal cosmetic goals for acne removal.
