Have you heard about the benefits of IPL, or intense pulsed light?

They are doing amazing things for the complexions of people all around the world.

Many wonder if they can truly get a brighter and clearer complexion from one of these photo facials. When it comes to looking younger and loving your skin, you may want to give some serious thought to IPL photo facials. Patients are showing the results are worth the hype.

So, What Is an IPL Photo Facial?

An IPL photo facial is when we take a broad spectrum light and use it to help improve your skin.

It is able to help for both better looking skin as well as healthier skin.

Some of the most common reasons to seek out an IPL photo facial include:

  • To reduce hair
  • Helping heal skin damaged by the sun
  • Even out pigmentation
  • Eliminating the appearance of branched or broken capillaries
  • Even out skin’s texture
  • To reduce or eliminate age spots
  • Reduce rosacea or any other type of redness
  • Reducing the visibility of freckles
  • Even out skin tone
  • Eliminate or reduce the visibility of pores
  • Even out your entire complexion
  • Increase how much collagen your skin has
  • Help firm up your skin

Is an IPL Photo Facial Going to Leave Me with After Effects?

When you get a series of IPL treatments, you will notice that your skin may change slightly over the course of the next two weeks, give or take.

If evening out pigmentation in your skin was part of what the IPL photo facial was for, the areas with darker pigment may get slightly darker prior to the excess skin sloughing off gradually.

You may also notice darker capillaries during the same timeframe. However, these are minor inconveniences that only some patients even notice.

How Many Times Do I Need an IPL Photo Facial for Improved Skin?

Typically, if you want long-lasting results from your IPL photo facial, we advise a few things.

First, we recommend that you come in monthly for treatments. Sooner does not give your skin the chance to fully heal, or for you to see the full results.

Second, we usually recommend anywhere from three to six full sessions with us to help clear your skin and make it glow.

You want to wait between sessions to give your body the chance to fully recover between treatments. That way, you see just how much you got out of each treatment before you come in for more.

Is an IPL Photo Facial Painful?

Most people would not classify an IPL photo facial as anything worse than a rubber band snapping against the skin.

It is a little uncomfortable to most, but after the first session, it gets easier since you know what to expect.

The downtime following each treatment is quite small, and the redness you may see afterwards will fade. If you notice redness right away, we recommend using a little mineral foundation before going back to your normal routine.

If you truly want to have healthier, cleaner skin, then you may want to give some serious thought to an IPL photo facial.

It can vastly improve your complexion from all issues, and give you skin that is glowing when you show it off.

Enjoy a simple treatment that can give you the face you have always wanted to show off to the world.
