IPL PHOTOFACIAL IN DELHI
HOW IT WORKS?
IPL Photofacial causes cutaneous blood vessels below the skin to constrict, thereby reducing redness and age lines. It helps in improving the overall texture of the skin and the results are quite visible at the end of the session the skin looks absolutely clean, bright, and rejuvenated.
We strongly recommend IPL Photofacial for treatment of hyperpigmentation as the use of laser specifically targets the melanin pigment (which is one of the reasons for darker skin tone) so that there is a visible reduction in the appearance of dark spots.
As the procedure begins, the patient is given protective eyewear to protect from the bright flashes of light. A cooling jelly is applied to the area to be treated both to lubricate the handpiece and to help cool the skin during the treatment. The dermatologist will shoot brief pulses of IPL laser to the skin through the handpiece.
During each session, the laser is passed multiple times over the area to be treated until a clinical endpoint is reached. Each session is then repeated frequently every 15 days. Once the hyperpigmentation has cleared up, the frequency is reduced for the next sessions. The duration of a session depends on the size of the area to be treated. Small areas will only take a few minutes, while the larger body parts may take upto an hour.
Multiple sessions may be needed depending on the severity of the concern and the area being treated. For most people 3-5 treatment sessions provide optimum results.
There is no downtime associated with this treatment. Some patients might experience mild redness of skin but that gets back to normal in a few hours post-procedure.
At RakShaa Skin Clinic, we only use US FDA Approved Laser Devices as the safety of our patients is of utmost importance to us.
The most important things to remember following IPL Photofacial treatment are to avoid the direct sun for the next 7-10 days and to wear plenty of sunblocks at least 2-3 times a day. After the completion of the recommended number of sessions, Intense Pulsed Light Therapy can provide long-lasting results for a year or more if the person religiously follows post-procedure instructions and skincare regime recommended by the dermatologist.

Everybody’s hair goes through a cycle. In fact, each hair follicle spends time producing a growing hair (the anagen phase) and then switches to the inactive phase when the hair is made ready for shedding (the telogen phase). If we observe an individual’s head at any one time, about 90% of the hair are growing and 10% are ready to shed. In case of life distressing situations like delivery and lactation, most of the hair land into the telogen phase which is bound to shed off after 3 months of duration.
Hair loss is likely to completely recover, although it may take up to a year for this to happen.
- Use volumizing shampoos, that contain protein.
- Avoid combined shampoo/ conditioners or intensive conditioners that make hair heavy.
- Use conditioners mainly on the ends of your hair and avoid application close to the scalp, as that will tend to weigh hair down.
- Exercising improves blood circulation and is a gateway to beautiful skin and healthy hair.
- Consume nutrient foods that are packed with vitamin B12, folic acid, Vitamin D3, iron and ferritin.
- No spa treatments, blow dry, straightening or coloring is recommended.
- Some products have a special hair-growth formula that works from the scalp outward, enhancing the volume and density of hair at the source and combats hair loss. Consult the dermatologist for recommendations.
Blood is taken just like having a routine blood test. The blood is spun in a centrifuge whereas the GFC is set apart from the red blood cells. Our clinic uses state of a art- GFC System, which is a quick, easy process that delivers consistent growth factor concentration. Once the plasma gets separated, it is then injected into the scalp where hair restoration is required. GFC is close to a physiologic pH, which means it is less likely to cause a burning sensation. There can be some discomfort but it will resolve soon. GFC is produced from the patient’s own blood, so there is no risk of allergic reaction or rejection.
