Leader in IPL Photo Genesis - Ventura County!
IPL Photo Genesis (or IPL photofacial) is
way to quickly, safely
remove sun spots and
age spots from your
face, chest, arms, and
hands, without gel or
topical anesthetics. The
signs of sun damage
will flake off after one or
leaving clear, younger
Comfort. We are offering a pulsed light system that is
exceptionally effective for treating pigment at a much more
comfortable energy level. There is no need to apply topical
anesthetic or gel beforehand, and you can realize superior
results in just one or two treatments. The IPL Photo Genesis
procedure is the next generation in pulsed light treatments.
Virtually any part of your body with sun and age spots
or freckles can be safely treated. The face, chest,
shoulders, and arms are the most popular areas for
IPL treatment because they have typically had the most sun
exposure. Both discrete spots and skin densely covered
with freckles respond well to treatment. Please scroll down to see Before and After Images.
The visible light delivered by IPL Photo Genesis is selectively
absorbed by the pigmented spots on your skin. It’s the
heating of the pigmented cells that causes the
No. Unlike other systems, the IPL Photo Genesis treatment
requires no topical anesthetic or gel before treatment. Gel is
messy, time consuming, and uncomfortable.
When the handpiece is placed on your skin, it will feel
cool and comfortable. When the pulse of light is delivered,
you may feel a mild, brief pinching sensation.
The actual treatment will only take a few minutes.
And, since there is no need to apply gel or any topical
anesthetic, your total appointment time can easily fit
into your lunch hour.
Typically, one or two treatments are sufficient to see
dramatic results. Additional treatments may be required for
very large or dark spots, densely freckled areas, or excessively
sun damaged skin.
Immediately following the treatment, the spots may
start to darken. You may notice a slight reddening of the
surrounding skin. This typically subsides within a couple
of hours. Over the course of the next one to three weeks,
darkened spots will fade and flake off. Your mottled
complexion will clear. Consult with Dr. Hanna
for complete information on the benefits and risks of treatment.
Many patients see significant improvement within two to three
weeks of treatment. Your complexion will be clearer and
younger looking. However, your final result may not be
apparent for a month or more.
Over time new spots may appear if there is sufficient sun exposure.
These too can be removed. Remember to liberally apply
sunscreen when outdoors to minimize sun damage and the
appearance of new spots and excessive redness.
