IPL Photorejuvenation

STEPS AWAY FROM A MORE EVEN SKIN TONE

Intense Pulse Light (IPL) devices use multiple wavelengths of light to treat sun-induced changes on the face, including brown pigmentation, age spots and broken blood vessels. IPL is also used to treat the facial changes of rosacea, including redness and broken blood vessels.

IPL may be used for these changes on the hands, neck and chest as well. It is safe, non-invasive and is tailored to the individual patient’s skin.

What is an IPL Photofacial?

IPL photorejuvenation is a light-based therapy that delivers intense pulses of broadband light into the skin, targeting specific skin conditions without damaging the surrounding tissue. Its many wavelengths of light energy are absorbed by pigmented areas, causing unwanted irregularities to break down. At the same time, it boosts collagen production, leading to firmer, smoother skin over time. 

Best of all, IPL is incredibly gentle–meaning no extensive downtime.

Your IPL Treatment

Instructions

Proper preparation can enhance the effectiveness of any treatment, ensuring optimal targeting. While following aftercare guidelines is crucial for the best outcomes and minimizing side effects.

Before Treatment

  • Consult a professional: Ensure IPL is suitable for your skin type and issues.
  • Avoid sun exposure: Stay out of the sun for 4-6 weeks prior to reduce the risk of dark spots.
  • Stop certain skincare products: Discontinue retinoids, exfoliants, and any photosensitizing medications 1 week before.
  • No waxing or chemical peels: Avoid these treatments on the target area for 2 weeks prior.
  • Clean skin: Arrive with clean skin, free of makeup, lotions, and perfumes.
  • Discuss medical history: Inform your practitioner about any medical conditions or medications.

Post Treatment

  • Expect mild redness and swelling: This is normal and typically subsides within a few hours to days.
  • Cool the skin: Apply cold packs or cool compresses to reduce discomfort and swelling.
  • Moisturize the skin: Keep the treated area hydrated with gentle, non-irritating moisturizers.
  • Sun protection: Use a broad-spectrum sunscreen SPF 30+ and avoid direct sunlight for at least 4 weeks.
  • Gentle cleansing: Wash the treated area gently with lukewarm water and mild soap.
  • Follow post-treatment instructions: Attend follow-up treatments if recommended and adhere to any specific aftercare advice from your provider.

Ideal Candidates for IPL

IPL photofacial treatments are suitable for men and women with light to medium skin tones seeking to address:

  • Acne scarring 
  • Age spots
  • Broken capillaries
  • Brown spots
  • Large pores
  • Melasma
  • Rosacea 
  • Spider veins
  • Sun damage
  • Sun spots
  • Uneven skin tone and texture

Contraindications may include recent sun exposure and specific skin conditions. A consultation with our specialists will determine if IPL is the right choice for you.

Before & Afters

Patients typically observe noticeable improvements in their skin’s appearance after just one IPL session, with optimal results visible after a series of treatments. The treated areas will gradually appear more even-toned and radiant, with a significant reduction in blemishes and discoloration.

What to Expect from Your IPL Photorejuvenation Treatment

A relaxing experience. Incredible results. Get the scoop:

Consultation

Your experience begins with a comprehensive consultation where our specialists assess your skin type, discuss your concerns and review your medical history to ensure IPL is the right treatment for you. Here, we’ll determine the parameters for fine-tuning the procedure for your specific needs and set your expectations.

Procedure

At the IPL treatment, you’ll be provided with protective eyewear to safeguard your eyes from the bright flashes of light, and a cooling gel is applied to the treatment area to enhance comfort and conductivity. The IPL device is then gently pressed against your skin, emitting pulses of light that target pigmented lesions and other irregularities. You may feel a slight snapping sensation, akin to a rubber band against the skin, but the procedure is generally well-tolerated.

Recovery

IPL photorejuvenation requires next to no recovery time–you can resume most normal activities immediately after the session. You may experience side effects such as redness and minor swelling in the treated area, but these effects typically subside within a few hours to a day. 

Over the next few days to weeks, targeted dark spots will flake off, revealing healthy skin beneath. Throughout this process, we recommend diligent use of sunscreen to protect your skin.

Follow-ups

The number of treatments needed varies based on your skin condition and goals. Many patients see significant improvement after just one session, but multiple treatments spaced a few weeks apart may be recommended for optimal results. 

How Much Does IPL Photorejuvenation Cost?

The cost of an IPL treatment varies based on the extent of the treatment area and the number of sessions purchased. Restorative Injectables is committed to providing transparent pricing, monthly specials and financing options to make our treatments accessible. Please contact us for more information.

Is IPL Safe For Dark Skin?

IPL’s effectiveness can vary depending on your skin type. Lighter skin tones typically absorb less of the IPL energy, making the treatment both effective and safe with few adverse effects. This characteristic makes it ideal for individuals with fair to medium skin tones.

However, if you have a darker skin tone, approach IPL treatments with caution. The melanin in darker skin absorbs more of the IPL energy, which can lead to unintended pigmentation changes, such as hyperpigmentation or hypopigmentation. 

That doesn’t mean IPL is off the table–it means you should have a thorough consultation with a skin care specialist who can assess your skin’s suitability for IPL. In some cases, we may recommend alternative treatments that are safer and more effective for darker skin, ensuring that you can achieve your desired skin care outcomes without compromising your skin’s health.
