IPL Photofacial


How does IPL Photofacial work?

An intense pulsed light (IPL) photofacial is an aesthetic service that simply stimulates your body’s ability to heal itself and regenerate new cells and tissues. This rejuvenating treatment works by exposing your skin to beams of very strong light. Different wavelengths of light treat varying conditions by reaching specific depths of the skin. Over time, new collagen, elastin fibers, and skin tissues begin developing and replacing older, damaged layers of skin, and soon all of those imperfections you have will flake off and fade away naturally.

Who is a good candidate for IPL Treatments?

Your IPL photofacial service from SkinReMEDI by Natural Body Spa is entirely tailored to you and the area of your body you want to treat. An IPL photofacial is beneficial for minimizing the appearance of:

  • Freckles
  • Age spots
  • Pigmentation
  • Sun damage
  • Uneven skin tone
  • Brown or dark spots
  • Vascular lesions, such as facial veins or broken capillaries

An IPL photofacial isn’t just for your face. The certified laser providers at SkinReMEDI by Natural Body Spa can treat your neck, décolleté, shoulders, and areas of the body.

Is there any downtime after an IPL Photofacial?

Yes. You may experience some redness, swelling, and tenderness that peak within the first 48 hours, then gradually start to subside within about a week as your skin heals. The pigmented lesions may initially look raised and/or darker with a reddened perimeter, this is normal. It will gradually turn darker over the next 24-48 hours. It may turn dark brown or even black and will begin to flake off in 7-10 days. It is important to not pick, scratch or remove any scabs and refrain from using any exfoliants until the treatment area is healed.Visibly dramatic results are clear about four to eight weeks after your IPL photofacial at SkinReMEDI by Natural Body Spa.

For optimal results, especially if you have more extensive pigmentation or sun damage, your laser provider may recommend a package of about 3 to 5 IPL photofacial sessions, each spaced at least 1 month apart.
