Pigmentation and textural issues can make you self-conscious about your skin. An IPL PhotoFacial is a non-invasive way to address a wide range of skin concerns. This treatment can address redness, sun damage, uneven skin texture, and even acne scars without an uncomfortable recovery.
What is an IPL PhotoFacial?
An IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) PhotoFacial uses pulses of light to target pigments. The light energy travels through the outer layers of the skin and into the dermis, where it triggers skin rejuvenation. Pigment-containing cells absorb the light energy, heating them until they break down. An IPL, also known as light therapy, is an effective way to treat pigmentation and skin texture issues.
This treatment works because red and brown pigments in the skin absorb the wavelengths of light produced by IPL. Since it uses a broad spectrum of light, it can treat different types of pigments at once. Most lasers only use one wavelength, often allowing them to target certain types of pigments but not all of them.
What Does Intense Pulsed Light Therapy Treat?
Your Juvanew team may recommend an IPL PhotoFacial if you want to address pigmentation concerns or restore smoother, brighter skin. This treatment can address concerns including:
Rough skin texture
Fine lines and wrinkles
An IPL treatment can also stop unwanted hair growth by targeting hair follicles. We recommend a consultation to find out if an IPL PhotoFacial is a good option for your needs. We often recommend IPL if you have pigmentation concerns and would also like to improve your skin texture.
Is There Any Downtime After an IPL PhotoFacial?
An IPL PhotoFacial does not require any downtime. Your skin may look flushed for several days. You will not have any restrictions on your activities. However, light therapy makes your skin extremely sensitive to sun damage. We recommend avoiding exposure and using quality sun protection after treatment.
People have IPL PhotoFacials for a wide range of skin concerns. The number of treatments you will need depends on:
The type of skin issues being treated
The severity of your skin issues
Your skin’s response to treatment
You may need up to five sessions to see your desired results. You will start to see results a few weeks after your first treatment, with full results after you finish all your treatments. Your IPL results can last a long time with optimal skincare. Sun protection is one of the most important steps you can take to prolong your results. Many people have an occasional touch-up treatment to fight or prevent signs of aging.
Have had one PhotoFacial treatment done here, so far, and I am so happy with the results! Can’t wait to go back for my second treatment. Everyone I have met here is very professional, kind, and knowledgeable. Highly recommend them.
