HIFUIPL Photofacial Face Treatment

What is an IPL photofacial?

When somebody mentions intense pulsed light (IPL) photofacial treatments, most tend to think of hair removal; however, Intense Pulsed Light therapy has many benefits to the skin.

IPL photofacials are non-invasive facial treatments that improve skin’s texture and tone. Typically, they last around 30-45 minutes, depending on your goals and skin condition. While the name suggests that IPL photofacials are typically a facial treatment, you can get one in your hands, shoulders, chest, and back if needed.

What is an IPL photofacial?

Thanks to overexposure to sun, genetic conditions, such as rosacea, and various aging factors; having a perfect complexion may seem impossible. However, intense pulsed light (IPL) treatments are an easy and convenient option to fight hyperpigmentation, sun damage, sun spots, fine lines, wrinkles, and other skin conditions.

What is an IPL photofacial treatment good for?

As we age, our skin starts to thin out, and the production of collagen reduces so we need cosmetic treatments that go beyond the superficial layers of the skin to have real results. Thanks to the photorejuvenation technology that IPL skin treatments offer, you can expect tighter pores and skin, a reduction in fine lines, wrinkles, skin redness and acne, and the reversal of sun damage.

What is the difference between an IPL photofacial and a Laser facial?

While both types of treatments have multiple benefits to the skin, they differ in the technology and the way they are administered. Laser facials use a single type of wave light to change your skin, this means that lasers have a more specific target when operating. In contrast, Intense Pulsed Light therapy uses a beam of broad-spectrum light, so the IPL treatment targets several problems at the same time. Since IPL treatments are less specific in their wavelengths, they are safer on sensitive skin and gentler than many laser alternatives.

Who is an ideal candidate for an IPL face treatment?

IPL photofacials are perfect for people who want to reduce the appearance of pores, fine lines and light wrinkles and moderate sun damage and/or acne scar. Since IPL face treatments are non-invasive, they are great for people who want a gentle and fast cosmetic treatment.

What are the results of intense pulsed light therapy?

Immediately after your facial, your skin will appear red and slightly swollen. This reaction is totally normal in IPL treatments and will disappear after a few hours. The experience varies according to the results you are looking for. If you want a collagen boost, you will see a smoother and firmer skin a few days after the procedure. In contrast, if you are treating acne, your skin will take longer to react, but in general, the sebaceous activity will decrease after a few weeks. Remember, to achieve optimal results you will need to have several sessions of an IPL photofacial.
