At Althea Medspa, we’re proud to offer a range of services at our locations in Sterling and Fairfax. One of these services is IPL photorejuvenation, designed to even skin tone.
What is IPL
What is IPL Photorejuvenation?
IPL photorejuvenation is a process that uses IPL to remove superficial pigments caused by photoaging and other causes, resulting in a more youthful appearance. Although it is sometimes called a "photofacial," the procedure may be applied to other areas as well such as the decolletage, hands, and arms. It is "non-ablative," meaning that it does not destroy tissue. For IPL photorejuvenation services in the Fairfax or Sterling areas, contact Althea Medpsa today to make your appointment or to learn more about the procedure.
Treatable Conditions with Fairfax and Sterling IPL Photorejuvenation
When you schedule an appointment for IPL photorejuvenation at Althea Medspa’s Sterling or Fairfax locations, you’ll see noticeable results fast. The IPL procedure lightens red discoloration caused by rosacea and broken capillaries, as well as brown discoloration including brown spots and freckles. It may also improve fine lines and wrinkles but this is not its primary purpose—at Althea Medspa, we have other treatments for that. Contact one of our locations in northern Virginia today for IPL photorejuvenation and more.
How Long Before You Will See Results of IPL Photorejuvenation?
Some effect is usually visible immediately after the treatment. The full effect takes three weeks to manifest, after pigment particles slough off with dead skin cells.
How Many Treatments Are Needed?
Optimal results are obtained after 4 - 6 treatments spaced at 3 - 4 week intervals. Contact Althea Medspa in either Fairfax or Sterling, VA for more information about getting started today.
What Kind of Machine is Used with IPL Photorejuvenation?
At Althea Medspa locations in Virginia, we use the FDA-approved Alma Harmony XL, a multi-application laser system for aesthetic laser and light treatments. We are currently using 540 nm and 570 nm handpieces that treat superficial vascular and pigmented skin irregularities.
Who Performs the IPL Photorejuvenation Treatments at Althea Medspa?
The IPL treatments are performed by Laser Technicians who have been certified in the Alma Harmony XL 540/570.
