What is an IPL Facial Treatment?
IPL facial treatments are also called photofacials. They use intense pulsed light to rejuvenate your skin. The IPL facial treatment destroys damaged cells, leaving you with refreshed, smoother, and younger-looking skin in the treatment area.
What Can Be Treated with an IPL Photofacial?
Multiple conditions associated with redness, hyperpigmentation, and vascular irregularities can be corrected with IPL facial treatments. These include redness associated with rosacea, acne, freckles, enlarged pores, and sun damage such as age spots.
What Should I Expect During My Session?
Each IPL facial treatment typically lasts just 30 to 45 minutes. The first step in each treatment is to thoroughly clean your skin. After that, a special medicine that uses light is used. A gentle light is applied to targeted areas of your skin. When the light goes to work, damaged skin cells are destroyed. This reduces the appearance of imperfections and leaves your skin more even and radiant.
Every person’s skin is unique, and a treatment plan will be designed for your specific concerns. However, most people generally need a series of treatment sessions for the best results.
What About Downtime?
There is no true downtime after an IPL facial treatment. Your skin will probably be sensitive to sunlight for a day or two, so try to stay out of the sun or take extra precautions if you must be outside. Because these treatments are quick and simple, it is possible to schedule them during a break from your other daily activities.
Is This a Safe Treatment Option?
This treatment is completely non-invasive. There is no need for an anesthetic to be used, so you do not have to worry about the possibility of complications from that.
