Intense Pulsed Light therapy (IPL), also commonly known as a photofacial, is a laser treatment used to perform skin treatments for aesthetic and therapeutic purposes. During this laser treatment, a handheld device is passed across surface of the skin delivering pulses of broad-spectrum light to the deep layers of the skin. You can think of it as a powerful light that flashes across the skin sending out scattered wavelengths of light, making it a skin treatment that is very targeted for specific problem areas or skin concerns.

What does IPL do for the skin?

An IPL photofacial laser treatment uses the power of broadband light to improve the appearance of dark spots, sunspots from sun exposure, rosacea, age spots, and skin texture. The treatment can also be used for hair removal, photo rejuvenation, and to alleviate dermatologic conditions like acne. It is a powerful treatment that really can target those pesky reds and browns that bother us. It is a popular treatment because it is effective, affordable, and non-invasive. Not all skin types may be a candidate for IPL, to find out if you are a candidate for IPL book a laser consultation with us today.

How many treatments do I need to see best results?

IPL Photofacial laser treatments usually require a series of treatments (typically 3 to 6) depending on your skincare needs and concerns.

How to get the best results from my IPL Treatments?

To make the most of your IPL Photofacial laser treatment it is best to start with a consultation and evaluation of your topical skincare regimen. Your topical skincare routine may need to be modified prior to your treatment. It is recommended to discontinue retinol/retinoid use for several days prior to procedure and several days after. Your aftercare will also be discussed and adjusted if needed. Being on proper medical grade skincare will amplify the results you are looking to achieve with this laser treatment.

Per Treatment

The specifics of your treatment can vary based on the type of laser treatment you’re opting to get. However, the general experience is often similar for all laser treatments throughout the body. While laser treatments are generally considered painless, a topical skin-numbing medication is often applied prior to a procedure to ensure your full comfort. Some clients do experience slight pinching sensations while lasers are working. Following your treatment, you’ll be given instructions for how to protect your skin for best results. Generally, avoiding intense sunlight and heat for a period of time following treatment is recommended. We’ll also provide you with recommendations for dealing with any pain, inflammation, or redness that you experience after your treatment.
