What is the IPL® Photofacial?

An Intense-Pulsed Light (IPL®) Photofacial is an advanced skin rejuvenation treatment that uses quick bursts of LED light energy to reduce hyperpigmentation and general signs of aging. The IPL® treatment is similar to a traditional laser treatment, however, IPL® uses multiple wavelengths of light energy for maximum results. One of the biggest benefits of our IPL® Photofacials is their speedy treatment time which allows patients to get the results they desire in just a few 30-minute treatment sessions. Our licensed aesthetic professionals typically recommend IPL® Photofacials to patients who want to reverse sun damage, target specific dark spots, or treat their general hyperpigmentation without cutting into their busy schedule with lengthy, invasive treatments.

At My Med Spa, we are proud to offer IPL® Photofacials with the following devices:

  • Palomar Max G

  • Rosacea
  • Broken blood vessels

What Can I Expect from My IPL® Photofacial?

Your IPL® Photofacial will be performed by one of our licensed aesthetic professionals in our beautiful facility. Before your IPL® treatment begins, a topical anesthetic and cooling gel will be applied to your entire treatment area. We may also provide you with protective glasses to wear throughout your IPL® Photofacial. Once comfortable, your provider will begin applying short, quick bursts of IPL® technology to the surface of the skin. Most patients liken this feeling to the sensation of a rubber band being snapped against the skin. IPL® treatments typically take 20 to 30 minutes complete, however treatment times may vary depending on the size of the treatment area.

How Long Does It Take to See Results from an IPL® Photofacial?

While some patients may see partial results of their IPL® Photofacial within a week of their first treatment, most patients are able to see the full results of their facial after about four to six weeks. This is because it takes time for the targeted pigmented cells in the treated areas to lighten. Your provider may recommend receiving a series of treatments spaced several weeks apart to achieve your desired results.

It’s important to remember that your skin will likely be red and sensitive following your IPL® treatment, similar to the sensation of a sunburn. This is normal and typically resolves on its own within a few days of treatment. Our licensed professionals recommend protecting your treatment areas at this time with a medical-grade SPF.

How Much Does an IPL® Photofacial Cost?

The cost of your IPL® Photofacial will vary depending on the size of your treatment area and the extent of treatment needed to help you achieve your desired results. To get a more accurate estimate of how much your IPL® Photofacial treatment will cost, we encourage you to come in for a complimentary consultation with one of our licensed medical professionals. For your convenience, we are happy to offer flexible financing options and luxurious membership programs.
