IPL Photofacial Q & A

What is an IPL photofacial?

An IPL photofacial is a cosmetic treatment that uses light energy to reduce or eliminate skin blemishes and signs of aging. IPL photofacials encourage the production of new collagen and elastin in your skin and underlying tissues, which firms, tightens, and rejuvenates your appearance.

IPL (intense pulsed light) is a type of laser technology. Standard lasers use a single, focused beam of light at one frequency. IPL uses multiple light frequencies. Aesthetic and Clinical Dermatology Associates uses cutting-edge Cynosure technology to do IPL photofacials.

What can IPL photofacials treat?

IPL photofacials are an effective treatment for common problems like:

  • Wrinkles and fine lines
  • Sun damage
  • Age (liver) spots
  • Rough skin
  • Adult acne
  • Freckles
  • Uneven skin tone
  • Spider veins
  • Redness and rosacea
  • Broken capillaries
  • Enlarged pores
  • Dark skin patches

IPL Photofacial treatments help to improve your complexion and give you a radiant, youthful glow.

What does an IPL photofacial treatment feel like?

An IPL photofacial should cause little if any discomfort. At most, you might feel warmth and a snapping sensation on your skin. If you have any concerns, your provider can apply a numbing cream before your treatment.

Your Aesthetic and Clinical Dermatology Associates provider uses different handpieces to treat various kinds of blemishes. This ensures that the IPL penetrates the target tissues while leaving the surrounding skin unaffected.

After your IPL photofacial, your skin can look red, like you have a mild sunburn. This usually disappears within 24 hours. Much rarer is slight bruising or blistering after an IPL photofacial.

How soon will I see results from my IPL photofacial?

IPL photofacials don’t produce instant results because the breakdown of blemished skin cells and the growth of new tissues take time. You’re likely to start noticing a difference in the first few weeks, with improvements continuing for several months.

The Aesthetic and Clinical Dermatology Associates team recommends a series of IPL photofacial sessions with 4-6 weeks between each treatment for the best results.
