What is IPL Photofacial?

IPL stands for intense pulsed light, and it’s one of the most effective treatments for pigmentation problems, vascular lesions, and textural irregularities on the skin’s surface. IPL photofacial is performed using a cutting-edge Lumecca IPL device, which uses photothermolysis to improve your skin’s texture. The medical provider delivers highly calibrated wavelengths of light energy into the unwanted pigments, spots, and vascular lesions, making them fade away from the skin’s surface. Significant improvements can be noted in complexion and clarity after just one treatment.

How Does IPL
Photofacial Work?

IPL photofacial involves delivering highly calibrated wavelengths of light energy into the targeted pigmented lesions and vascular lesions. The unwanted pigments and veins absorb the light energy delivered by the device. The light energy breaks and dissipates the pigmented cells, so they eventually flake off the skin’s surface. And the light energy gradually destroys the damaged capillaries and blood vessels responsible for your spider veins and vascular lesions, facilitating their gradual metabolism by the body. The results are smoother, softer, and more even-textured skin after a few sessions.

Your In-Office IPL Photofacial Treatment

One month before your appointment, please avoid direct, excessive sun exposure or artificial tanners. Your IPL photofacial treatment will start with a thorough consultation with our medical providers. They will examine your skin and discuss your goals to curate the ideal treatment plan for you. The IPL device must be modified to deliver highly calibrated wavelengths of energy according to your unique skin type and color.

During your treatment, the medical provider will move the handheld IPL device over the targeted regions on your skin. The IPL device will send laser energy into your skin. You may experience bright flashes of light and a mild burning sensation as if you’ve been snapped by an elastic band. The treatment should conclude within 30 minutes, but the specific duration depends on the number and size of treatment areas.

Side Effects of IPL Photofacial

Redness and a warm feeling are totally normal after IPL treatment. After an hour, the redness and warm feeling will normally subside. Over the next two days, the pigmented spots might become darker. Within a week, the pigmented lesions flake off, which will lead to an even skin tone. After treating the vascular lesions, you may notice the vein blanch and then disappear or a color change in the vein, which would disappear in a few days.

IPL Photofacial Results

The IPL photofacial results can be noted a few days after the first session. There will be a continued improvement over time, with the most visible results after 1 to 2 weeks. The pigmented spots will become darker before eventually flaking off, and the vascular lesions will gradually fade away from the skin’s surface. For vascular treatments, such as facial telangiectasis, results can be seen after 2 weeks. Most patients need up to three treatments for optimal results.
