IPL Photofacial Q & A

How does an IPL photofacial work?

An intense pulsed light (IPL) photofacial is an aesthetic service that simply stimulates your body’s ability to heal itself and regenerate new cells and tissues. This rejuvenating treatment works by exposing your skin to beams of very strong light. Different wavelengths of light each treat varying conditions by reaching specific depths.

As targeted tissues heat up — only to therapeutic temperatures, so no risk of burning — the deepest layers of your skin are gently damaged, which triggers a cascade of healing events. Over time, new collagen, elastin fibers, and skin tissues begin developing and replacing older, damaged layers of skin. All of those imperfections you have fade away naturally.  

 

What can an IPL photofacial treat?

Your IPL photofacial service from SkinReMEDI by Natural Body Spa is entirely tailored to you and any blemishes you want to erase. An IPL photofacial is beneficial for minimizing the appearance of:  

  • Freckles 
  • Age spots
  • Pigmentation 
  • Sun damage
  • Uneven skin tone 
  • Brown or dark spots
  • Vascular lesions, such as facial veins

Not only can an IPL photofacial treat all of these imperfections — and more — during a single type of service, because new tissue and skin-firming collagen start building up from the deepest layers, this treatment can even smooth out fine lines and wrinkles.

An IPL photofacial isn’t just for your face either. The aestheticians at SkinReMEDI by Natural Body Spa can treat your neck, décolleté, shoulders, or another problem area. 

 

Is there any downtime after an IPL photofacial?

Yes. You may experience some redness, swelling, and tenderness that peak within the first 48 hours, then gradually start to subside within about a week as your skin heals. Visibly dramatic results are clear about four to eight weeks after your IPL photofacial at SkinReMEDI by Natural Body Spa.

For optimal results, especially if you have more extensive pigmentation or sun damage, your skin care practitioner could recommend a package of about three to five IPL photofacial sessions, each spaced at least a month apart. 

Once you reach your skin goals, the team at SkinReMEDI by Natural Body Spa usually recommend annual IPL photofacials to help your skin continue to look and feel more youthful. Your aesthetician can even help you select clinical-grade skin care products to minimize the effects of aging.
