What is an IPL Photofacial?
Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) Photofacials are a light-based skin rejuvenation treatment that uses concentrated light energy to reduce the visible effects of age and improve the overall tone and texture of the skin. The light energy gently heats the skin and stimulates the production of collagen and elastin, while working to break up unwanted pigmentation and reduce the appearance of facial redness. Each IPL Photofacial treatment can be completed in a 30 to 45 minute session. There is no downtime associated with IPL treatments and patients are typically able to immediately return to their normal activities following a treatment session.
IPL Photofacials can be used to treat:
- Facial redness
- Spider veins
- Sun damage
- Fine wrinkles
- Enlarged pores
- Acne Spots
Before an IPL Photofacial treatment session, some patients may be required to stop taking medications like certain antibiotics, blood thinners, and pain medication several days prior to their treatment session. During your initial consultation, we will review your general health and medical history, and discuss any additional steps you will need to take prior to your IPL Photofacial treatment. Patients are and encouraged to use additional sun protection when planning to be outdoors and we recommend patients avoid excessive sun exposure or use of self tanner for at least two to four weeks prior to their treatment session.
What can I expect during a treatment session?
Treatment sessions typically last for 10 to 30 minutes depending on the area being treated. There is no downtime or recovery period associated with this treatments, and most patients are able to return to their normal activities immediately following a treatment session. Prior to your treatment we will thoroughly cleanse your face and remove any makeup before applying a cooling gel to the designated treatment area. During the treatment session, you may experience a pinching sensation, similar to the snapping of a rubber band, as the pulses of light pass over the treatment area. Protective eyeglasses will be provided to shield your eyes during the treatment session.
