IPL Photofacial Q & A

What is an intense pulsed light (IPL) photofacial?

An IPL photofacial, also called photorejuvenation, is an aesthetic treatment that rejuvenates your skin and restores a more youthful look. 

The experienced team uses the innovative aesthetic tool to treat:

  • Age spots
  • Sun damage
  • Skin discoloration
  • Visible capillaries
  • Uneven skin tone
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Skin redness
  • Rosacea

The IPL is a nonablative treatment, which means it doesn’t damage the surface layer of your skin. 

How does the IPL photofacial work?

An IPL photofacial emits intense, visible pulses of light that target specific types of skin cells without damaging any of the surrounding skin. The light energy is absorbed by the pigmented cells in your skin (melanin), hemoglobin, or red blood cells. 

The energy damages the structure of the targeted cells, which are either absorbed by your body or brought to the surface of your skin and sloughed away. 

The laser therapy improves the tone and texture of your skin, leaving you with a clear, younger, and healthier look. 

Am I a good candidate for an IPL photofacial?

Youthful Reflexion is a full-service med spa that offers a comprehensive collection of treatments and services to meet a wide range of aesthetic goals. Before making any specific treatment recommendations, the experienced team conducts a comprehensive evaluation.

During your exam, the team asks detailed questions about your beauty concerns and aesthetic goals. They also review your medical history and your past experiences with skin rejuvenation or laser treatments, as well as the types of medications and supplements you take. 

Based on the information gathered during your evaluation, the team determines if you’re a good candidate for an IPL photofacial. The aesthetic treatment is a safe and effective treatment that addresses many beauty concerns.

What are the benefits of an IPL photofacial?

When it comes to aesthetic treatments, an IPL photofacial offers many benefits. Some of them include:

  • No need for anesthetic
  • Little to no downtime
  • Noticeable improvements after 1-2 treatments

Although the improvements in your look are almost immediate, the team recommends 3-5 treatments for optimal results. Because there’s no need for downtime after an IPL photofacial, treatment can be repeated each month to maintain results.
