An Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) Photofacial is a procedure used to lighten up dark patches, grackles, or brown spots on the skin that have been caused by sun exposure and aging.

This treatment works on most types of skin and provides a great, non-invasive method to improve the skin’s texture and reduce hyperpigmentation or redness. It’s the perfect solution to help your skin look younger and more vibrant.

How Does the Treatment Work?

Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) Photofacial uses high-intensity wavelengths of light to heat the surface of your skin.

Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) Photofacial uses high-intensity wavelengths of light to heat the surface of your skin, which in comparison to other treatments available, causes minimal damage. The light is emitted from a small handheld device that will be controlled by the healthcare professional who is performing the treatment.

From here, the skin’s natural healing process starts to regenerate the collagen protein within the skin. This gives the skin a smoother appearance and a healthier complexion and reduces hyperpigmentation.

The treatment takes around 15-30 minutes, depending on the effects of the sun on your skin. It may cause a tingling or pinching sensation, but it should not be painful.

After the Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) Photofacial procedure is complete, your skin may be a little red and swollen, but this should start to reduce after a day or two. The skin may turn a little darker in some areas, but these patches will peel off after a few days as the skin begins to heal from its deeper layers.

Photofacial Post Treatment Care

Most people will see great results after just one session, but if you want additional treatments, it’s recommended to wait at least four weeks between sessions to optimize results. In case of questions or concerns, don’t hesitate to contact the experts in the field.  To learn more and book your Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) Photofacial treatment today, contact Hellenic Laser Spa.
