IPL Photofacial Q&A

What is an IPL photofacial?

A photofacial uses intense pulsed light (IPL) to remove skin discoloration on just about any area of your body, including your face, arms, and chest. The laser heats tissue to remove pigment in as little as 1-2 treatments, leaving your skin with a youthful glow.

What are the benefits of IPL photofacials?

IPL photofacials can offer you the following cosmetic benefits:

  • Even skin tone
  • Reduced freckles
  • Diminished skin spots
  • Less sun damage
  • Fewer spider veins
  • Less redness
  • Diminished rosacea
  • Younger-looking skin
  • More self-confidence 

IPL photofacials are painless, fast procedures that don’t require surgery, cutting, needles, or downtime, and they can give you the gorgeous, youthful skin you long for.

Is an IPL photofacial right for me?

Your IMAC Med Spa provider discusses your medical history and desired outcome to determine if you’re a good candidate for IPL photofacials. They also examine your skin in areas of concern and let you know what to expect during the procedure.

What happens during an IPL photofacial?

During each scheduled appointment, your provider can numb the treatment area to help you avoid discomfort. They give you special glasses to protect your eyes from the laser’s light and then clean your skin. 

Your specialist hovers a handheld device above your skin in areas of concern. You might feel the sensation of a rubber band snapping during your treatment, and each session might last about 45 minutes, but every patient is different.

What should I expect after the procedure?

After an IPL photofacial, expect some redness and puffiness temporarily, but there’s no downtime. You can resume your normal routine right away. Apply ice to the area to reduce swelling, if you’d like.

Over the next few days, weeks, and months, you can expect a smoother, more even-toned complexion. Make sure to protect your skin from the sun. Your specialist might recommend a series of treatments with periodic maintenance sessions to achieve desirable, long-lasting results. 

Don’t live with age spots and other skin imperfections or undergo invasive procedures when effective alternatives are within reach. Call IMAC Med Spa to make an appointment or book online to find out if an IPL photofacial is right for you.
