The IPL photofacial is a superficial treatment that clears up pigmentation problems by applying rapid pulses of light energy to the skin. This treatment is effective for a range of skin problems, including sun spots, red spots, spider veins and rosacea, as well as warding off acne breakouts.

Those who can benefit from IPL have skin conditions such as:

  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Vascular lesions (birthmarks)
  • Broken capillaries
  • Sun spots
  • Age spots

What should I expect after my IPL Photofacial?

After your IPL Photofacial, the pigmented sun damage and spots on your skin will turn dark and eventually disappear. This healing process usually requires about two weeks. IPL is a very superficial skin treatment that does not ablate or abrade the skin, so downtime is less of a concern.

IPL Photofacial FAQ's

Is IPL treatment painful?

Most patients tell us that IPL feels similar to a snapping sensation like a rubber band snapping against the skin, and any discomfort can be managed with a topical anesthetic. After IPL treatments, the sensation is comparable to mild sunburn.

How long will my results last?

How long results of IPL last will partly depend on the number of treatments you receive. Many patients choose to undergo a series of IPL treatments to get the best results possible. Your new look generally lasts as long as you avoid prolonged sun exposure.

Can I continue using my skincare products before and after IPL?

Because IPL does not exfoliate the skin, you can maintain use of your skincare products before and after treatment.
