What is the IPL Photofacial and who could benefit from the treatment?

Both aging and environmental factors can do a number on our skin over the years. Acne, rosacea, and sun damage are just a few conditions that can negatively affect the overall appearance of your skin. If you are experiencing issues with pigmentation or common signs of aging on your face, the IPL photofacial might be the right solution for you.

The IPL photofacial delivers an intense blast of broad-spectrum light that targets pigmentation and other skin concerns by gradually bringing them to the surface to improve the overall health and appearance of the skin. It’s simple, non-invasive, and requires little-to-no downtime after treatment. Photofacials are a much more gentle alternative compared to some other laser and chemical resurfacing treatments. 

IPL treatments can be used to treat the:

  • Face
  • Neck
  • Chest
  • Arms
  • Hands
  • Back
  • Shoulders

What are the key benefits of the IPL Photofacial?

The IPL photofacial is a minimally-invasive cosmetic procedure that can help improve the appearance of discoloration, fine lines, and other skin tone irregularities. The ideal candidate for an IPL photofacial is someone who is experiencing issues with pigmentation– such as freckles, sun damage, redness, larger pores, and other signs of aging. 

Most people opt for skin rejuvenation treatments like this to reverse skin damage and achieve an overall youthful look again. The IPL photofacial differs from harsher light and laser treatments because:

  • There is minimal damage to the skin caused
  • Minimal downtime is required since recovery takes just a few days
  • It offers an effective and safe method to achieving results 

Depending on your unique skin condition, the IPL photofacial can remove or at least improve the appearance of:

  • Sun damage
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Age and acne spots
  • Freckles
  • Rosacea
  • Birthmarks
  • Broken blood vessels or varicose veins on your face

It’s common for UV radiation and environmental pollutants to cause inflammation and free radicals in your skin. A lot of this will lead to scarring and premature signs of aging, and in some cases, skin cancer. IPL treatments are highly effective at destroying the free radicals and reducing inflammation– all while rejuvenating the skin!

How does an IPL Photofacial work?

The device uses powerful bursts of light to improve the appearance of the skin. The light waves are filtered to exclude any potentially harmful wavelengths that could be harsh on the skin. The filter keeps the light waves within the appropriate range for your skin. The right amount of heat is stimulated and targeted cells are eliminated.

IPL therapy stimulates both new collagen production and hyaluronic acid in your skin. This helps your skin specifically:

  • Reduce wrinkles and other signs of aging
  • Treating any scar tissue that has been targeted
  • Keeps your skin moisturized, smooth, and youthful

What can I expect during the consultation and treatment process?

During your complimentary consultation, our team will go over your skin concerns, goals, and patient history. We will recommend a personalized treatment plan based on what is discussed. Any questions can be discussed in detail about what to expect before, during, and after treatment. Desired results may require multiple treatments over a span of several weeks.

During the treatment, you can expect:

  • The laser energy is used to remove layers of damaged skin to leave the treated area smoother and even
  • The laser may be passed over targeted areas multiple times until imperfections are no longer visible and a smooth layer of skin is left
  • There is very minimal if any heat damage to the surrounding tissues
  • Each treatment session could take around 30-120 minutes to complete depending on the area size and condition being treated

Patients may experience a little swelling and discomfort for a few days after treatment. Results will gradually get better over the few months directly after the last treatment session. Our team will be able to give you any post-treatment recommendations.
