What is an IPL Photofacial?
An IPL photofacial is a full face and neck treatment for discoloration and other pigmentation concerns. While discoloration and pigmentation concerns are generally harmless, patients often pursue IPL treatments in order to remove these discolorations and achieve a more even skin tone. The IPL treatment works by delivering light energy to the pigments in the skin. The skin pigments will absorb this light until the pigment is destroyed, at which point the pigment will begin to fade from view.
What are the Benefits of an IPL Photofacial?
The IPL photofacial is an ideal treatment for treating discoloration and pigmentation because it works on nearly all skin types and offers a comfortable treatment with no downtime. While other light-based treatments can irritate the skin and require additional care, the IPL photofacial offers a simple solution. Plus, it can be used to treat a variety of concerns, including:
- Age spots
- Irregular pigmentation
- Facial spider veins
- Port wine stains
- And more
How Much Does an IPL Photofacial Cost?
The cost of your IPL photofacial treatment will depend on the number of treatments necessary to produce your desired results. The treatments typically cost about $600. We will discuss the exact cost of your treatment during your initial consultation. In an effort to make our treatments more affordable, we are proud to offer a variety of financing options.
What Can I Expect During My IPL Photofacial Treatment?
The IPL photofacial is a comfortable treatment that requires no numbing prior to the procedure. During treatment, the IPL device will be positioned to deliver bursts of light energy to the skin. It may be maneuvered around the skin in order to address the full treatment area. A single IPL photofacial treatment session takes about one hour to complete.
What Can I Expect After My IPL Photofacial Treatment?
While you may experience some minor redness or sensitivity following your IPL photofacial treatment, there is no downtime or recovery period necessary after your treatment. Keep in mind that the pigmented lesions may become darker after treatment. This is a natural part of the healing process, and they will begin to fade in the following weeks. Most patients require multiple treatment sessions for optimal results, typically falling in the range of 3 to 5 treatment sessions.
