What is IPL?

IPL (which stands for “Intense Pulsed Light”) and Laser Photrejuvenation, or PhotoFacial, as it is commonly referred to, uses lasers to rejuvenate the skin by addressing the wear and tear of sun damage and other forms of aging that appear on the face, neck, chest, and hands.

Harnessing the Power of Light

IPL light therapy works on multiple layers of your skin while ensuring that healthy cells are preserved and protected. This ability to target several different layers of skin results in an overall more comprehensive change than other procedures. The gentle pulse of light then stimulates the body’s natural collagen, which results in a youthful, natural glow. So you can be assured that the results feel subtle, organic, and all your own.

Is IPL Right for Me?

While IPL is a relatively simple process, it’s natural to wonder if it is the right treatment for you. Typically, IPL patients are those looking to address specific skincare needs about their face, as well as their hands when needed. It helps to know what you want before you begin to achieve the most beneficial, natural results. It’s also important to note, potential patients who have undergone recent spray tanning may want to wait before having PhotoFacial. Typically, patients who elect to have IPL treatment include: 

  • Those looking to address facial redness, rosacea, acne scars, and sun damage
  • Those looking to address age spots, enlarged pores, blood vessels, and wrinkles
  • Those unhappy with neck and hand appearance 
  • Those looking to spread out their procedure to several, non-invasive sessions
  • Those looking for natural rejuvenation and subtle, organic results. 

Getting Started

No matter the procedure, our providers believe the first step is having an open dialogue about your goals and desires. During your consultation, you’ll be able to ask whatever questions you may have, and our provider will go over each step of the treatment process. Together, you will develop a treatment plan that meets your specific needs. You will leave your consultation knowing exactly what to expect on the days of your IPL treatments and what you can expect from the overall results in the weeks and years to come.

The Procedure

While every patient’s needs are different, IPL works most effectively when used in at least three sessions, spread out over several weeks. Some patients may even elect to have between four and six sessions. Each treatment typically takes less than an hour and is relatively painless. After a soothing gel is applied to your face to ensure comfort and the protection of healthy skin cells, the broad-spectrum light is then applied to your damaged, compromised skin cells. Most patients return to work immediately afterward. 

Your Results

One of the truly amazing things about the IPL treatment is how minimal the recovery period is following the procedure. You can expect to just settle back into your normal day. As mentioned, returning for several sessions spread out over the course of a few weeks is recommended to receive the maximum benefit from this procedure. Going forward you can expect your skin to respond to the treatment by developing its own natural collagen response, resulting in a new, revived appearance that is all your own.
