Ready for a Glow-Up? Try IPL Fotofacial®

Are you waiting for your glow-up moment? Remember that glow-ups happen on different timelines for everyone, and the most important part of a glow-up is that you’re happy with your appearance, but if you want to speed up the glow-up process, an IPL Fotocial® can help you achieve your aesthetic goals.

Here’s what you need to know about IPL Fotofacials.

What is an IPL Fotofacial?

An IPL FotoFacial is a rejuvenating skin treatment that harnesses the power of intense pulsed light (IPL) to reduce the signs of excess UV damage and aging. IPL doesn’t just have one wavelength of light. Rather, it emits multiple wavelengths at once, which means it can correct multiple skin issues at once. Convenient!

Not to be confused with spa facials or masks, IPL Fotofacials are delivered via a handheld device that targets the light energy to the designated areas. 

Alfred Sofer, MD and the team here at Plastic Surgery Center of Fairfield use these treatments for a variety of conditions from vascular issues (including spider veins) to age spots. 

IPL Fotofacials give you a collagen boost

Increased collagen production is the secret to a Fotofacial’s success. The IPL energy stimulates your fibroblasts 一 the cells in your connective tissue that make collagen 一 to ramp up collagen production. Collagen is a naturally occurring protein that provides structure and elasticity to your skin. The increased collagen plumps up your skin, reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, firms your skin, shrinks your pores, and gives you a more refreshed appearance. The best part? Because your body increases collagen production, IPL Fotofacials deliver long-lasting results.

Say goodbye to blemishes and hello to your glow-up

IPL Fotofacials don’t just increase collagen. This skin rejuvenation treatment addresses other cosmetic concerns, including:

Tired of red, blotchy skin ruining your complexion? You don’t need to hide your skin under layers of foundation anymore. IPL Fotofacials also reduce the skin redness and visible facial veins associated with rosacea

Between the increased collagen production and the treatment of problem areas (whether that’s acne, brown spots, etc.), IPL Fotofacials deliver a glowing, brilliant complexion while addressing some of your specific skin concerns.

Vibrant skin is just one call away…

As with most light-based treatments, you might feel a slight snapping sensation during your treatment, but we can apply a topical anesthetic for your comfort. Afterward, your skin might be pink, and you might feel like you have a sunburn, but the effects should dissipate within a few days. IPL Fotofacials don’t have significant downtime, and we provide all of the post-treatment instructions you need to make the most out of your glow-up. 

Want to treat yourself to revitalized and healthy skin? Call Dr. Sofer at 203-336-9862 to schedule your IPL Fotofacial consultation. Don’t forget, you can always use our online booking tool to schedule your appointment any time day or night.
