Photofacial / Intense Pulse Light at Sound Shaped Med Spa

The team at Sound Shaped Med Spa in Boston, recommends Photofacials/IPL treatments for women aged thirty and over with moderately pigmented skin (Fitzpatrick types I-III) to help correct years of photo damage. Many cosmetic flaws can result from genetics, pregnancy, environmental factors, or medications. At Sound Shaped Med Spa, we use the Harmony®XL system to perform Photofacial/IPL (Intense Pulse Light) treatments. These treatments can safely and effectively address vascular and pigmented lesions, improving conditions such as port wine stains, telangiectasias, hemangiomas, erythema, rosacea, and poikiloderma of Civette. The Photofacial/IPL utilizes selective pulsed light energy, precisely absorbed by the targeted area, without damaging healthy skin.

Benign vascular lesions, typically red in color, result from an abnormal clustering of blood vessels. The Photofacial/IPL pulsed light selectively heats and closes off these blood vessels, reducing the lesions while sparing nearby tissue from injury. Pigmented lesions, which appear brown, are clusters of melanin. The light energy heats the melanin in the lesions, causing it to fragment. These fragments are then absorbed by the body and eliminated. During treatment, smooth, consistent light pulses ensure the energy delivered to the skin is gentle and effective. Patients may feel a sensation similar to a light rubber band snap on the skin. After treatment, patients can immediately resume regular activities. It is important to avoid sun tanning, as it may cause an adverse response to this treatment. Most patients require four to six treatments, spaced three to four weeks apart, for optimal results. This treatment is also excellent for treating hyperpigmentation!
