This young patient of Asian descent was unhappy with the freckles that had started to show up on her cheeks. Her goal was to have an even skin tone so she could wear less concealing makeup, which she had been wearing daily to cover the freckles. She wanted a treatment that would be safe and gentle, as well painless. IPL Photofacial only targets the brown and red spots, leaving the surrounding tissue unharmed. Unlike laser treatments, IPL uses Intense Pulsed Light, which is gentle and doesn’t involve any significant downtime. After the treatment dark spots get slightly darker, and then slowly slough (or flake) off. We recommend a series of 3 treatments spaced 3 weeks apart to maximize results. This patient had 2 treatments and you can see most of the brown spots are gone, and her complexion looks more even and less red than before.
