Walnut Creek Aesthetics is here to set the bar and help you find the best ways to understand IPL. But of course, before we talk about all the great things about an IPL photofacial, let’s start with the basics. 

Check out this blog post and see how things work for your next — or first — IPL Photofacial treatment. 

All About IPL Photofacial

IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) treats sun damage, wrinkles, stretch marks, and age spots, among other things. IPL is also called photofacial and photorejuvenation. Treatments are done at med spas and doctors’ offices. 

You can use it to get rid of mild sun damage, brown spots, freckles, or uneven pigmentation on the face, neck, or even chest. Alternatively, you can also use IPL treatments for hair reduction, but multiple treatments may be necessary. 

But the benefits are worth every penny, as long as a licensed skin care specialist with a lot of experience does them. Photo facials are not very painful because they feel like a rubber band snapping. 

Since the 1990s, the FDA has said that this treatment can eliminate flaws. It is also thought to be one of the best ways to rejuvenate aging skin without surgery. This treatment is also usually used to fix imperfections like uneven skin tone, sun damage, brown spots, acne scars, and even vascular lesions like rosacea!

What Happens During The Treatment?

Over time, due to aging and other factors, the layers of your skin weaken and can appear thin, wrinkled, rough & blemished. Photofacials are a safe and gentle way to get rid of flaws, and the results get better over time as the skin gets thicker and healthier.

When pulses of light are directed over the skin, they will reach deeper layers of the skin, which repairs damage and prevents future signs of aging. This slips off the skin’s superficial layer to reveal younger cells, stimulating collagen growth responsible for creating structure and rejuvenating the genes of the affected skin!

Benefits of IPL PhotoFacial

If you’re still thinking about whether to get this treatment or not, better yet, do it now. Either way, here’s what you can guarantee. 

Available in Most Parts

Most people start by using it on their face, but once they see results, they move on to other problem areas like their neck, shoulders, and chest. With IPL treatments, photofacial rejuvenation can fix any part of your skin that is damaged or has problems.

Fixes Your Blood Vessel

IPL is a great way to get rid of small blood vessels that have become visible, make sunspots look worse, or cause other changes in pigmentation.

Keep Your Acne Away

IPL treatments can help if you have severe acne and have trouble getting rid of the redness and swelling it causes. IPL can help get rid of large pores and reduce the look of acne on your skin without you having to use products that dry out your skin all the time.

Less Red Face

Suppose you have rosacea or another skin condition that makes your skin look red. In that case, IPL photofacial therapy is a great way to make your skin look less red and more natural.

Slows Down Your Aging

IPL isn’t necessarily an anti-aging treatment, but it does help reduce wrinkles, sunspots, and other signs of aging. IPL stimulates collagen growth to improve the skin’s texture by treating a deeper layer of skin. This makes fine lines and wrinkles look less noticeable.

Who is an Ideal Candidate for IPL Photofacial?

Anyone looking to improve signs of aging. By treating a slightly deeper layer of skin, IPL Photofacials stimulate collagen growth by mimicking minor injuries to the dermis. This helps improve the texture of the skin. 

The treatment can also help fix small blood vessels that have become visible or eliminate sunspots and other skin color irregularities. Photofacials have lasting effects in helping reduce the signs of aging, such as fine lines, wrinkles, and sunspots.

What to Look For?

Most facial treatments are time-consuming and have downtime. With Photofacial treatments, each procedure can take around 30 minutes and easily fit into your busy day! Bruising, redness, and swelling are common.

But they will go away over time. Another great thing about IPL treatments is that there is no downtime after them, so you can go right back to what you were doing before. No need to miss work or skip picking the kids up after school!

When To See Changes?

After just one facial, your skin should look and feel smoother. Age spots become darker and then move to the skin’s surface, where they disappear as part of the skin’s natural exfoliation process. 

Fine lines and wrinkles get smaller over time, and skin and pores feel and look tighter. For instance, customers start with their faces, but once they see results, they move on to other trouble spots. 

Some of these areas are the neck, shoulders, and chest. With IPL treatments, Photofacials can help anywhere on your skin that is damaged or has problems. Still, the ideal way to determine the type of laser, treatment settings, and cost to make your beauty goals come true is to get your provider’s assessment.

Things To Consider

With each treatment, the pigmentation and redness should get a lot better. Most patients only need between 3 and 5 treatments. Some will see a big difference after just one treatment. There is no downtime, and the only side effect is usually a slight pink flush on the skin’s surface.
