The staff at InVita Health and Wellness offer IPL (intense pulsed light) and BBL (Broad Band Light) treatments for patients who are searching for a safe and efficient solution to a wide variety of skin disorders. These modalities are the next generation of phototherapy used to improve age spots, freckles, redness, acne, rosacea, and other visible signs of aging and sun damage to leave you with healthier looking skin.
Intense pulsed light therapy works by delivering filtered high-energy light to its target area. IPL is "nonablative," so it keeps the surface of the skin intact, working instead to create beneficial changes from the inside out. The broad spectrum of light emitted in intense pulses from the IPL device is absorbed by darker-pigmented cells. As these cells absorb the energy, they heat up to the point that they are damaged. This will induce the body’s natural healing process for improved elastin and collagen production, leaving you luminously glowing and it only gets better over time!
When this happens to lesions on the surface of the skin, they flake away, leaving clearer skin behind. Vessels below the surface that cause visible redness collapse and are absorbed back into the body
Your skin will show improvement just days after your first treatment! Results vary based on severity of skin damage, type of treatment and energy settings.
This powerful device can produce results in a single session, but even greater results are possible with more than one session. Most patients do not experience any side effects and any skin redness usually resolves within a few hours. You will notice the brown pigment to appear darker first and then fade away. The skin will continue to look younger and more brilliant over time with the most visible results after 1-2 weeks. It is recommended to avoid direct sunlight and tanning 2 weeks prior and after treatment. Having multiple photofacial sessions will improve the final result. Special package pricing is available.
