IPL Photo Facial Q & A

What is an IPL facial?

An intense pulsed light (IPL) photofacial is an advanced laser skin treatment that uses carefully controlled pulses of light to target cells in the deeper layers of your skin. IPL therapy works by damaging the cells that produce pigment and stimulating the production of collagen, all without harming the outermost layers of your skin.

The laser light penetrates into the deeper layers of your skin, where it’s absorbed first by areas of higher pigmentation. The laser light creates heat, breaking apart pigmented cells. 

Your body’s natural immune process then kicks in to eliminate those cells through your lymphatic system in the same way that all cellular debris is removed from your body. The heat produced by the laser pulses also triggers your body to create new collagen cells that plump and smooth skin. 

What conditions can an IPL facial address?

IPL photofacials are among the most popular medical aesthetic treatments. They address multiple skin conditions at once, delivering excellent value for your skin care investment. 

The team at IMAC Med Spa offers IPL facials to improve the appearance of the following skin conditions:

  • Dull skin
  • Dark spots
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Wrinkles and fine lines
  • Sagging skin
  • Rosacea
  • Acne scarring
  • General issues with texture and tone

While you may notice an improvement in your skin after just one IPL session, most people achieve the best results after a series of treatments. 

What should I expect during an IPL facial?

An IPL photofacial usually takes 30 minutes at most. Many people schedule their sessions during a lunch hour or a break in their daily schedule. 

There is no significant pain associated with an IPL photofacial, and no need for anesthesia or advance preparation. There is also no downtime, so you can return to normal activities right after your appointment as long as you take care to protect your treated skin from sun exposure. 

When you arrive for your session, your specialist at IMAC Med Spa gives you protective eyewear and applies a cooling gel to your face. They then pass the laser tool over the surface of your skin. You may feel a sensation similar to the snap of a rubber band against your skin.

How many treatments do I need?

This depends on your personal goals for treatment, skin type, and other individual factors. Typically, a series of 3-5 treatments spaced about 4-6 weeks apart is recommended for optimal results.

Following your initial consultation, your provider at IMAC Med Spa designs a custom treatment plan to achieve stunning skin rejuvenation results from IPL therapy. You’ll get all the details on scheduling and the cost of treatments, allowing you to make an informed decision about your treatment plan.
