IPL or Photofacial | Before and After Images

What is an IPL Photofacial?

IPL stands for Intense Pulsed Light, better known as “Photo facial”.  This treatment delivers broadband light through the skin for skin rejuvenation. An IPL helps restore youthful looking skin that has been damaged from the sun or the aging process. This procedure will amaze you with its ability to decrease redness, lessen the appearance of pigmented spots, improve acne, reduce pore size and improve texture and fine lines. The below before and after photos are proof that an IPL treatment is well deserved for anyone who loves the sun. Take a look at our IPL before and after photos and determine if a photo facial is the right treatment for you.

IPL Photo Facial Treatment

An IPL, photo facial, can be performed on areas such as: full face, neck and hands. This specific treatment can take up to approximately 15 to 45 minutes, depending on the area being treated. After the initial treatment, patients will see results instantaneously. For optimal results, our practice recommends 3-5 treatments at 3-4 week intervals. Ideally, most patients need an average of three to five months for complete IPL photofacial treatment results. During the first treatment, patients may feel a mild discomfort, however, don’t let this alarm you. Along the way, after each treatment, your skin should start to become resilient to the discomfort and should eventually come to a comfortable stage. The results from a photofacial typically last for up to a year. It is essential to do annual touch-ups to retain optimal results.

Post-IPL Expectations

After the initial treatment from an IPL there may be slight discomforts such as skin sensitivity. Your skin may appear to have minimal redness, which should subside within minutes to hours after the IPL photo facial treatment. It is perfectly okay to use makeup to conceal the redness after the procedure has been completed. However, the makeup must be applied and removed very cautiously and gently. For treatments directly targeting age spots and hyperpigmentation, spots may remain dark for several days after the treatment. Avoid sunlight as much as possible and apply medical grade sunscreen daily to prevent any skin damage.
