IPL Photofacial Benefits
improve skin tone, reduce or remove sun damage and brown spots, and treat spider veins or broken capillaries
An IPL photofacial uses intense pulsed light technology, a light based treatment that targets damaged or hyperpigmented cells to improve skin tone, reduce or remove sun damage and brown spots, and treat spider veins or broken capillaries. The procedure works by emitting light wavelengths into the skin that target pigment-producing cells. As the light penetrates your skin, it’s converted to heat and destroys hyperactive cells to disperse pigmentation. Hyperpigmented spots are pulled to the surface of your skin and eventually flake off to reveal more youthful and even skin.
Depending on the extent of the skin damage and depth of pigmentation, we may recommend anywhere from one to three IPL treatments.
Sometimes an IPL photofacial is combined with a chemical peel to produce the best results.
Am I A Candidate for an IPL Photofacial?
IPL photofacials in Ormond Beach and the surrounding areas are often used to treat sun damage, but they can also be used to reduce the appearance of rosacea, hyperpigmentation, and diffuse redness. You may be a good candidate for an IPL photofacial if you are troubled by any of the following:
- Brown spots
- Sun damage
- Spider veins or broken capillaries
- Enlarged blood vessels associated with rosacea
Not everyone is a good candidate for IPL laser treatment. If you have a tan or a high Fitzpatrick score, which classifies skin type by pigment and reaction to sun, you may not be a good candidate, as IPL rays are attracted to pigment. To find out if you can benefit from an IPL photofacial, schedule a complimentary consultation.
How Are Photofacials Performed?
A photofacial involves shining an intense light on the treatment area using an IPL device. During your procedure, you will need to wear an eye mask to protect your eyes. As the IPL device is pressed against the treatment areas, it will emit a light that heats collagen under the skin and targets hyperpigmented areas. You may experience a sensation similar to a rubber band snapping against your skin during light pulses. Your procedure may take anywhere from 20 to 40 minutes depending on the treatment area.
What Is Recovery Like After an IPL Photofacial?
After IPL treatment, you can expect dark spots and freckles to darken and look worse temporarily as they are brought to the surface. These spots will flake off on their own within seven to 14 days or fade gradually.
You may feel like you have a sunburn in the treated area, but this feeling subsides within a day. While rare, blisters or scabs may appear. Your IPL photofacial specialist will give you care instructions for taking care of your skin for the first couple of days. As a general rule, most physical side effects are minor and subside within one to two days.
How Long Will My Photofacial Results Last?

Keep in mind an IPL photofacial won’t stop the aging process or prevent further sun damage. Avoiding excessive sun exposure is the best way to extend your results. You may also choose IPL treatments over a period of years to maintain your results.
