  • Are IPL Photo Facials Good for Treating Sun Damage?

    Can IPL photo facials help reverse sun damage?

    I’ve spent years sunbathing, and now I’m suffering serious sun damage. Can IPL photo facials help me?

    Photo facials can help with sun damage

    Yes, they can. IPL photo facials are a painless skincare treatment that plumps aging skin and reverses sun damage by boosting collagen production. IPL stands for intense pulsed light, and it treats brown spots, broken capillaries, spider veins, uneven pigmentation, and facial redness. IPL photo facials work by using a broad-spectrum light source that penetrates multiple layers of skin. This type of photo facial primarily targets the lower layers of skin (dermis) while leaving the top layers of skin (epidermis) unaffected. The heat generated from the light promotes healing of the skin within, treating a number of different dermatological issues.

    Sacrifice Nothing to Gain Everything

    Unlike other cosmetic procedures, IPL photo facials are non-invasive and carry no serious risks. There’s also no downtime involved, either. While the results obtained with IPL photo facials won’t be as dramatic as plastic surgery, they’re a gentler, more natural, and less expensive way to go. Plus, IPL photo facials are safe for nearly all skin types and tones.


    What’s an IPL treatment like?  The treatment process itself is straightforward. Before the IPL treatment, a medical professional will apply a cold gel to the target area, and you’ll be required to wear protective eyewear. The treatment lasts around 20 minutes, during which a medical professional will gently apply the IPL handpiece to your skin so that healing light rays can be delivered to the skin’s surface using precise pulses. Most IPL procedures are virtually painless, but more sensitive people might experience mild discomfort – a feeling not unlike a rubber band being snapped against the skin. Photo facials typically require little to no recovery time. Following treatment, you can return to your normal activities.  More intense IPL treatments, however, may produce sunburn-like symptoms for up to two weeks after the procedure.

    In some cases, those results can be seen after only the first treatment! And skin continues to improve with each successive treatment.

    IPL photo facial treatments call for five treatment sessions spaced three weeks apart to obtain desired results. In some cases, those results can be seen after only the first treatment! And skin continues to improve with each successive treatment. You’ll likely notice a big change in your appearance after undergoing IPL photo facials for three months or longer. IPL photo facials work best in conjunction with a regular skincare routine.
