What Is An IPL Photofacial?

Some of us were born with freckles. Some of us have spots from prolonged exposure to the sun. Hyperpigmentation comes in many various forms, and no one likes to look at uneven, spotted skin tone. If you are trying to get relief from the appearance of hyperpigmentation, facial veins, enlarged pores, or even scarring, the IPL Photofacial can help.

The IPL Photofacial

The IPL Photofacial, also known as IPL Photorejuvenation is an Intense Pulsed Light treatment that is used to create a smoother and more even skin tone.  The IPL treatment can help repair sun damage, reduce the appearance of age spots, liver spots, sun-induced freckles, and can eliminate spider veins. This treatment can also reduce the appearance of scarring, enlarged pores, and blemishes. 

A broad spectrum of light is transmitted through a small handpiece that is placed over the skin. The light energy penetrates the tissue targeting specific cells without damaging the cells around it.  The targeted cells absorb the energy, the energy turns into heat, and the heat destroys the cells to prevent them from regenerating. The body’s own natural processes then remove the injured tissue from the skin leaving younger and smoother looking skin in its place. 

The number of treatments is dependent on your skin condition and color. Patients may need 3 to 5 IPL Photofacial treatments in order to see their ideal results. These treatments are usually spaced 4 weeks apart and patients will begin to see improvements in their appearance about 2 to 3 weeks after each IPL Photofacial procedure.

Will There Be Any Downtime After the IPL Photofacial?

There is no downtime with the IPL Photofacial, but patients may experience minor redness and peeling after the treatments. The skin will also be extremely sensitive to the sun’s UV rays, so it is recommended that sunscreen be worn when going outdoors. Otherwise, clients can return to their normal schedule of daily activities without missing a beat!

The IPL Photofacial is a great way to care for your skin and develop a healthier, more even skin tone. You will be able to face each day with renewed skin and renewed confidence!
