What are IPL Photofacials?

IPL Photofacials are a safe, non-invasive, highly effective skin treatment that fights the signs of aging and sun damage.

The procedure uses intense pulsed light (IPL) to penetrate deep within the dermis, drawing out pigment-producing cells and increasing collagen production. The treatment results are quickly noticeable, sun damage and skin imperfections reversed, and the client is left with a younger, more even-toned appearance.

Benefits of IPL Photofacials

Fighting the aging process can be a battle, especially with genetics, sun damage, and environmental toxins playing a prominent role in our day-to-day lives.

We can use IPL Photofacials to treat your face and any other areas of your body, such as your arms, hands, legs, and décolletage. Results you may see with IPL Photofacials include:

  • Reverse sun damage
  • Minimize acne and acne scars
  • Prevention of premature skin aging
  • Alleviate rosacea and spider veins
  • Brighter, more even-toned skin
  • Lessen the appearance of freckles and other skin discoloration

Am I a candidate for an IPL Photofacial?

Most healthy adults are great candidates for IPL Photofacials. However, treatment does work best on fair to medium, untanned skin tones. If you use Accutane, you should wait six months after you stop taking it. Treatment is not recommended for pregnant women.

IPL Photofacial treatment may be right for you if you have:

  • Sun Damage
  • Age Spots
  • Rosacea
  • Freckles
  • Birthmarks
  • Acne Scars
  • Spider Veins

Consultation and Preparation

We believe consultations are a vital first step. At your consultation, your aesthetic skin care specialist will do a health intake and discuss your beauty goals. Then, together we will decide what your options are, make a treatment plan that fits into your lifestyle, and provide optimal results.

To prepare for your procedure, we recommend our Newport Beach IPL Photofacial patients to limit their sun exposure. Tanned skin does not respond well to IPL Photofacial treatments. While you may wear makeup to your appointment, remember that we will need to remove it to treat the facial area.

The Lumecca IPL Photofacial Procedure

The IPL Photofacial procedure is safe, gentle, and non-invasive. Your treatment begins with your specialist thoroughly cleansing the area. They will then apply a cool gel over the skin to help enhance the effectiveness of the light waves, and eye protection will be provided. Using a handheld device, the specialist will then apply brief pulses of bright light in a grid-like pattern for even coverage, often passing over several times to ensure optimal results. Some clients report minimal discomfort, like a rubber band on their skin. The procedure lasts an average of 30-60 minutes, and you can expect to return to your usual routine immediately after.

IPL Photofacial Results, Recovery, and Aftercare

After your IPL Photofacial, the pigmented skin will start to darken, resulting in a coffee grounds-like texture that will flake off within a week. After that, the treated area will appear brighter and more even-toned, continuing to improve over the next several weeks.

There is no recovery time with IPL Photofacial; you will be free to continue your day after your treatment. Your specialist will go over exactly what you can expect, but your aftercare instructions may include:

  • Refraining from make-up for at least 12 hours, allowing your skin to recover
  • Gently cleansing the area, taking care to pat dry vs rubbing
  • Limiting sun exposure and consistently using sunscreen

IPL Photofacials FAQs

Your IPL Photofacial is a non-invasive and safe procedure. Most clients report minimal discomfort, similar to an rubber band on the skin.

Lumecca IPL Photofacials generally come with little to no risk. Those with dark or tanned skin may not be a candidate for this treatment however. Some clients report redness at the treatment site. However, if redness occurs, it will resolve itself within a few hours. We do recommend you limit your sun exposure up to and after treatment and use sunscreen to protect your skin as it heals.

Your Photofacial results will continue to improve over time. Within 3 months of your last treatment, you will see peak improvement. Treatment plans often include 3-5 appointments over several months. Many clients choose to repeat the series of treatments yearly to optimize their look.

It is recommended that you refrain from makeup for 12-24 hours post-treatment to allow your skin to heal.

The cost of a Lumecca IPL Photofacial can vary based on your treatment plan. We will be happy to discuss your options at your consultation.
