Photofacial IPL

Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) is a non-invasive laser treatment that can effectively target various pigmentation issues such as sun damage, brown spots, rosacea, and red spots. This treatment is considered a safe and effective method to achieve a more even skin tone and texture. During the IPL treatment, the laser device emits multiple wavelengths of light into the skin, which penetrate the skin's surface and target the pigment-producing cells located beneath it. The melanin in these cells absorbs the light energy, which converts into heat energy, effectively destroying the melanin-producing cells. Over time, the damaged cells rise to the surface of the skin, where they transform into a sandpaper/coffee ground-like substance that falls off naturally. IPL treatment is an excellent option for those looking to address pigmentation issues without undergoing invasive procedures. The treatment typically takes around 15 minutes to complete and can be performed on various parts of the body. It is important to note that IPL treatment may cause some mild discomfort and temporary side effects such as redness, swelling, and darkening of the treated area. However, these side effects usually subside within a few hours to a few days.
Overall, IPL treatment is an effective way to achieve a more even skin tone and texture, revealing healthy and radiant skin!

How long do IPL results last and how many treatments will I need?

The results of IPL treatment will progressively improve over time, and the best outcome can be noticed 1-3 months after the last treatment. Old spots may reappear if proper sun protection and skin care maintenance are not taken care of. It may take around 3-5 treatments to see the desired results. For optimal results, it is recommended to undergo a new series of treatments every year.

Is there any downtime?

It is likely that you will experience redness due to sunburn in the affected area, and there is a possibility of swelling, but you do not need to take significant downtime. You can apply makeup and resume your regular skincare routine the next day. However, it is highly recommended that you avoid exposure to the sun for at least two weeks and use daily SPF protection consistently.
