About IPL Photofacial

IPL photofacial is a revolutionary skin rejuvenation treatment that improves your overall skin complexion and texture. The medical provider delivers highly-calibrated wavelengths of intense pulsed light (IPL) energy into the unwanted pigments, spider veins, and other irregularities. The light energy disperses the unwanted pigments, helping you achieve smooth, even-textured skin. IPL photofacial allows you to experience stunning skin rejuvenation results without the downtime associated with traditionally ablative lasers.

How Does IPL Photofacial Work?

Evolve MD performs IPL photofacial using the cutting-edge Lumecca device, which allows us to personalize the treatment according to your specific skin type and color. The medical provider delivers the appropriate wavelengths of light energy into your skin. Different skin conditions, such as vascular lesions and pigmentation problems, respond to different wavelengths of light. The unwanted pigment absorbs the light, gets dispersed, and eventually fades away from the skin’s surface. Over time, your overall complexion brightens.

Candidates for IPL Photofacial:

  • Want smoother, more even-textured skin
  • Want to avoid harsh side effects or downtime
  • Are physically and mentally healthy
  • Have realistic expectations
  • Don’t have active skin infections or open wounds
  • Don’t have medical contraindications for IPL photofacial
  • Have not undergone tanning recently
  • Have not taken Accutane in the past 6 months
  • Are not pregnant or nursing at the time of the treatment

The IPL Photofacial Process

IPL photofacial is a highly personalized treatment, and it must be performed after a thorough evaluation. The medical provider examines your facial skin, discusses your goals and symptoms, and analyzes your skin type. Based on the assessment, the medical provider calibrates the wavelengths of the IPL device. We also believe in patient education, and our medical providers will describe exactly what they’re doing so you have complete mental clarity.

The medical practitioner will deliver the appropriate wavelengths of light energy at the targeted treatment areas using the Lumecca device. If you have multiple concerns, the medical provider may change the wavelengths according to the skin conditions they’re targeting. You will have to wear protective eyewear, and you may experience a warm sensation, sort of like a rubber band snap. But most patients say the treatment is painless. It concludes within 30 minutes.

Side Effects & Downtime

You can expect mild post-treatment redness and swelling after the IPL photofacial. Your skin might look slightly sunburnt, as if you spent a few additional hours on the beach without sunscreen. The pigmented lesions will become darker, but they’ll soon flake off your skin after 1 to 3 weeks, making your skin look brighter and more radiant. You can resume normal daily activities immediately after the treatment, but please avoid direct sunlight for a few days.

Results: Onset & Longevity

The results of IPL photofacial appear gradually over several weeks. The darkened pigments will gradually flake off your skin within 1 to 3 weeks, making your skin look bright and radiant. Depending on your unique conditions, you may also need additional sessions for optimal results. Our medical providers will also recommend medical-grade skincare products to improve the longevity of the results.
