IPL Photofacial - An Overview

Also known as photorejuvenation, IPL photofacials offer a non-invasive solution to transform blemished skin into a glowing complexion using intense pulsed light (IPL). Short blasts of high-intensity light energy reach the skin’s deeper layers, targeting melanin and hemoglobin in the skin, which helps clear spots and blemishes.

IPL light waves also heat the deeper layers of the skin, boosting natural collagen and elastin production. That reduces fine lines, wrinkles, and scars and delivers firmer-looking skin that is more even in tone and texture. The heat also destroys acne-causing bacteria at its source, clearing acne outbreaks and preventing future ones. IPL photofacials alter the skin at the cellular level, producing a more youthful, radiant appearance.

What Are the Benefits of IPL Photofacials?

Intense pulsed light therapy offers numerous benefits, including the following:

  • Non-surgical skin rejuvenation solution
  • Targets a wide range of skin conditions
  • Virtually painless treatment with no downtime
  • Boosts collagen production
  • Minimizes the signs of skin aging
  • Reduces fine lines and wrinkles
  • Improves skin tone and texture
  • Clears acne outbreaks and smooths away acne scars
  • Reduces age spots and sunspots
  • Treats pigmented lesions
  • Improves melasma, pore size, and rosacea
  • Enhances skin clarity and vitality
  • Minimizes facial veins, broken blood vessels, and redness
  • Minimal to no discomfort, downtime, or side effects

What Can You Expect?

Most IPL photofacial treatments take between 30 and 90 minutes to complete, depending on the treatment area and your unique needs. We will start by gently cleansing the area and applying a cooling gel to your skin. The handheld IPL device will emit light pulses, healing and transforming your skin from the inside out.

IPL photofacials are not painful, with some individuals describing what feels like being snapped by a rubber band. You should not need downtime after treatment, meaning you can resume your daily activities immediately. However, your skin may feel like it is sunburned for 4-6 hours and may have redness or bruising for a day or two. Make sure to wear sunblock and limit sun exposure to protect your treated skin.

How Many Photofacial Treatments Will You Require?

Most individuals see a noticeable improvement in their skin’s health, appearance, and clarity after just one short treatment. However, you will likely need three to seven treatments spaced two to four weeks apart for optimal results. Follow-up treatments once or twice a year will maintain your skin’s health and youthful radiance.
