Boost Your Complexion With Photorejuvenation

The skin is a shield that’s constantly subjected to external elements, such as sunlight, acne-causing bacteria, viruses, pollutants, and injuries. As you go through life, your skin may start looking dull, irregularly textured, uneven, pigmented, and rough. We use the cutting-edge Clareon IPL device to target your specific skin concerns, boost your complexion, stimulate collagen production, and make your skin look youthful and radiant from within. IPL photofacial harnesses light energy to revitalize your complexion.


What is IPL Photofacial?

An IPL photofacial is a cosmetic procedure that uses intense pulsed light (IPL) to treat skin conditions and improve the appearance of the skin. IPL photofacials can treat numerous conditions, including sun damage, age spots, rosacea, and acne. The light from an IPL device penetrates deep into the skin, causing the cells to produce new collagen and elastin. This results in a more youthful appearance and a reduction in the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and age spots.

How Does IPL Photofacial Work?

IPL photofacial involves channeling calibrated wavelengths of light energy into your skin using the Clareon IPL device. The light energy is absorbed by the unwanted pigmented lesions, following which they are broken up. Once the unwanted pigments are broken up, your body metabolizes them, and they fade away from the skin.

Furthermore, certain wavelengths of light energy also penetrate the deep dermis to stimulate collagen production, which makes your skin look smoother, firmer, and more youthful.


What Happens During The IPL Photofacial?

Your IPL photofacial starts with a thorough evaluation. The medical provider will carefully examine your skin, discuss your goals and concerns, and adjust the Clareon IPL device according to your needs. During the treatment, a gel is applied to your skin. This helps the light energy to be evenly distributed and protects your skin. The practitioner will move the device over the treatment area to deliver pulses of light energy. Each pulse lasts only a fraction of a second, so the treatment is not painful.

What Are The Side Effects Of IPL Photofacial?

The most common side effect of IPL photofacial is temporary redness and swelling of the treated area. This usually subsides within a few hours to a couple of days. You may also experience mild burning or stinging, but this should dissipate quickly. In the next few days, you may notice that your skin is shedding. This is a good sign — the IPL treatment is working!

Is There Any Downtime After IPL Photofacial?

While there is technically no downtime after an IPL photofacial, you may want to take it easy for the first few days after your treatment. Avoid strenuous activity, wear sunscreen, and drink plenty of water to help your skin recover quickly and achieve optimum results. It is also important to avoid sun exposure during this period to ensure optimal recovery.

When Will I See The IPL Photofacial Results?

You can expect to see the full results of the treatment within 4-6 weeks as your skin continues to eliminate the unwanted pigment. The number of treatments needed depends on the condition being treated and the response of the skin to the IPL. Most people need 3-6 treatments, spaced 4-6 weeks apart, to see significant results.
