IPL Photofacial

What is an IPL Photofacial?

An IPL Photofacial is a quick treatment that aims to improve your skin’s all-around appearance. It evens out skin tone with minimal discomfort, all while stimulating collagen in the process. This light-based technology lightens brown spots and diminishes broken capillaries with little to no downtime.


How does an IPL Photofacial work?

Elevation Plastic Surgery & Med Spa offers the best in skin rejuvenation procedures. Their IPL Photofacial technology uses high-energy pulses of light to improve the skin’s appearance. IPL is a nonabrasive and noninvasive treatment option for removing red and brown pigments from the skin.

Leaving the top layer of skin intact, IPL penetrates below the surface of your skin, which means no recovery time is needed. The powerful platform offers adjustable settings that allow a customized treatment to best suits your skin.

An IPL Photofacial can improve the appearance of:

  • Age spots
  • Birthmarks
  • Spider veins
  • Acne scarring
  • Sun damage
  • Freckles

The light generated from IPL targets the pigment in these damaged skin cells, creating tiny injuries that prompt your body’s natural healing process.


What are IPL Photofacial sessions like?

IPL Photofacials are generally well-tolerated, but if you have especially sensitive skin you can ask Dr. Griner about numbing medications. Your Photofacial session may last up to an hour depending on the area being treated.

Sessions are spaced approximately three weeks apart. Depending on the results you desire, two to four treatments may be needed.


What is the recovery process like after an IPL Photofacial?

There is no recuperation time following your IPL treatment. You may return to work and normal activity the same day.

After your treatment, your skin may feel like you’ve sustained a mild sunburn, with areas of redness and tenderness. Over the next few days, the redness fades, and the brown in the damaged cells becomes darker and darker.

These small spots look like coffee grounds on your face. You’re witnessing the amazing healing process of your skin. In the following days these spots peel off and your rejuvenated new complexion emerges. Applying sunscreen is highly recommended during the healing process.

Elevation Plastic Surgery & Med Spa offers medical-grade skin care products that can enhance and lengthen the results of your IPL Photofacial. When you’re ready to get started, schedule your appointment online or by phone.
