How does IPL photofacial treatment work?
Our patients get a treatment done to address a skin issue or a sign of aging they find unsightly. Things like sun spots, acne scars, melasma, hyperpigmentation, rosacea, redness, fine lines, and others can be treated with IPL photofacial technology. And because it’s noninvasive and there are virtually no side effects associated with a treatment, IPL technology is a much safer and better option over surgery, and it might even be a better option for you over injections.
With the procedure, gentle pulses of light energy are emitted into the skin. These pulses can target very specific areas and issues in the skin like dark spots or even tiny blood vessels. After the procedure, the area treated will be sensitive and a bit inflamed, but soon it’ll be left looking clear and revitalized! The gentleness and versatility of the technology allow it to be used on most areas of the face.
What should I expect with a typical IPL photofacial treatment?
First, an esthetician will thoroughly cleanse your skin and then apply a cool gel to it. After, the professional will proceed with treatment. This entails the movement of an IPL laser over the area you want treated. The esthetician may go over an area more than once, and the procedure might be slightly uncomfortable, but remember, it’s very safe.
After the treatment is done, the esthetician will cleanse your skin again to remove the gel. You’ll probably be somewhat red and puffy looking, but that’s about it for side effects. Also, there’s practically no downtime after the treatment, so you’ll be able to get back to your everyday activities and your routine skincare regimen right away! Just stay out of the sun for a week or so and apply sunscreen as needed.
What kind of results can I expect from an IPL photofacial treatment?
You can expect great results from your treatment, but expect to see them develop over time. Multiple treatments will give you the best results, and about 3 months after your final treatment, you’ll notice a significant improvement in your skin issue and the overall condition of your skin. You can definitely expect a vibrant glow to it! To prolong your results, it’s a good idea to use sun protection, and it’s important to maintain your everyday skin care. For optimal results, a treatment each year with our med spa is recommended.
