What is an IPL Photo Facial?

If you would like to transform your skin and achieve a radiant complexion, you might want to think about getting an IPL photofacial.  The IPL photofacial is a short, gentle treatment that can restore the health and beauty of your skin with little to no downtime.    But what is an IPL photofacial, and how does it work.  

What Is An IPL Photo Facial?

An IPL (intense pulsed light) photofacial is a non-invasive light-based treatment that uses broadband light to improve the tone and texture of the skin.  IPL therapy impacts the skin on a cellular level so it enhances the complexion and reverses signs of aging.

IPL therapy uses the power of intense pulsed light to treat a range of skin problems including sun damage, spider veins, rosacea, brown spots, freckles, and enlarged veins.  It is a versatile treatment that can be used on different parts of the body, including the face, neck, and chest. 

What’s Involved In An IPL Photofacial?

The IPL device emits multiple wavelengths of pulsed light that penetrate down to the deep layers of the skin, without harming the upper layer.  The pulsed light targets specific cells that absorb the broadband light.  The light energy is converted into heat, which targets damaged skin cells, and corrects a variety of irregularities linked to pigmented and vascular lesions. 

Most patients notice an improvement in the appearance of their skin after the first IPL treatment, but it typically takes 2-3 treatments to achieve the best results. 

Depending on the area being treated and the specific skin condition, an IPL photofacial takes about 45 minutes to complete.  

IPL therapy is well-tolerated and does not usually require any form of anesthesia. 

An IPL photofacial is a simple way to achieve clearer, brighter, more youthful-looking skin.
