The IPL facial works well on any part of your face, neck, décolleté, shoulders and arms that present any of the following conditions:

How does it work?

The Photofacial

This procedure uses a highly versatile and advanced non-laser IPL technology to improve overall skin tone and imperfections in the skin that are commonly associated with aging.

Customized to Your Needs

The versatility of this technology allows our medical professionals to customize your IPL Photofacial to your specific needs, considering your skin type, tone and aging skin conditions.

Targeted Treatment

During the IPL Photofacial treatment we gently deliver precise amounts of Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) to the target area we are treating in order to achieve the most optimal results.

Combats Signs of Aging

The new collagen will smooth the skin and reduce some of the signs of aging, such as fine lines, wrinkles, age spots and enlarged pores to give you a more even skin tone.

The heating effects of the IPL Photofacial treatment

This helps diffuse the pigmentation of brown spots, reduces redness and other discolorations. Additionally, as the pulses of light pass through the skin’s surface, they trigger the production of new collagen and reduce blood flow to broken capillaries in the area, which further helps to reduce redness.

What to expect?

IPL treatments are not painful for most patients, though some may feel a mild pinch.

Unlike other treatments, our IPL Photofacial does not require any downtime so that you can return to your daily activities immediately after the session. This makes it an excellent choice for those who want results quickly and without having restrictions on what they’re able or unable to do during their recovery period.

While it is uncommon for patients to experience severe pain or discomfort, they may report mild redness and swelling. The duration of these symptoms will vary depending on the person; some experiences only last a few hours while others can experience soreness that lasts until one day following treatment area application.

When you receive an IPL treatment, your skin will be delicate for 2-3 days. You should avoid harsh cleansers and hot water to prevent further damage. It is best to use gentle products and cool or warm waters when washing your face during this time period. After a few days, apply daily lotion as normal.

You’ll notice right away that your dark patches will start to lighten after the session, while lighter areas flake off in 1-3 weeks.

The redness and spider veins that you’ve been fighting for years will begin to dissipate within 1-3 weeks.

IPL Photofacial treatments typically last 30 minutes, but it could be longer depending on the area treated. The number of IPL sessions required varies from one patient to another; however, our specialists recommend up to three phototherapy appointments spaced at least four weeks apart for optimal results.

Am I a candidate?

The IPL Photofacial is a safe way to get rid of dark spots on light or medium skin tones. It is not recommended for patients with darker complexions to utilize this treatment, because they will be disappointed with the results due to the laser energy being absorbed more easily with deeper pigmentation.

We recommend that you avoid the sun as much as possible and apply broad spectrum sunscreen when outdoors to minimize new damage to your skin.
