IPL Photofacial Q&A

What is IPL Photofacial?

IPL Photofacial is the most potent IPL to treat vascular lesions and pigmented skin. Advanced technology can provide results faster than any other IPL. IPL Photofacial uses a special handpiece that is equipped with a xenon flash lamp to treat areas effectively. It’s often used during photofacials.

What is a photofacial?

A photofacial uses intense pulsed light (IPL) to treat areas of skin hyperpigmentation or discoloration. An IPL photofacial with IPL Photofacial is an excellent way to improve the appearance of your skin, even if you have more than one area of concern. 

Some of the conditions that can be improved include:

  • Age spots
  • Redness from rosacea
  • General redness
  • Spider veins
  • Freckles
  • Melasma
  • Large pores
  • Wrinkles and fine lines
  • Uneven tone or texture 

Many men and women choose to have IPL Photofaciall treatments in combination with skin tightening and resurfacing. This combination package is the most comprehensive approach to skin restoration.

The Prime Wellness team can discuss the best way to combine these aesthetic treatments as well as Botox® and fillers, neurotoxins, and PRP to deliver optimal results. They tailor all treatment plans to your specific needs.

Which areas does IPL Photofacial treat?

The most common areas treated with IPL Photofacial are zones regularly exposed to the sun. These zones include the neck, face, décolletage, hands, arms, and legs.

Your IPL Photofacial treatment at Prime Wellness requires no preparation or any form of anesthesia. A numbing cream can reduce sensations in the treatment area. 

Does IPL Photofacial treatment hurt?

As the team moves the IPL Photofacial handpiece over the surface of your skin, you feel a sensation like the snap of a rubber band as the device sends pulses of light into your skin.

After your session, your skin might feel warmer and more tender than usual, similar to a mild sunburn. These sensations fade within a few hours, and you can lessen them with over-the-counter pain medication. 

How many IPL Photofacial treatments will I need to see optimal results?

Most patients need 3-5 treatments to achieve optimal results. Your treatment plan may vary depending on the size of your treatment area and the degree of discoloration.

The Prime Wellness team monitors your progress as you move through treatment. They can advise you on how your body is responding to treatment and adjust your treatment plan accordingly.
