Intense pulse light, or IPL, is a quick way to rejuvenate aged or damaged skin. The light pulses penetrate deep below the surface level of your skin, causing collagen and blood vessels to tighten. For both women and men, this treatment reduces age lines, wrinkles, and redness. IPL Photofacial is also beneficial for diminishing acne scars and improving the appearance of certain scars.
When will I see results after an IPL Photofacial treatment?
Your skin continues to tighten and heal for weeks after your treatment. It’s common to notice a gradual improvement with each passing day. Usually about two or three weeks afterward, you should have the optimal results you desire. NAWI helps you maintain your optimal IPL Photofacial results by guiding you through proper skincare regimens you can do at home. By using sunscreen, toners, moisturizers, and other topical solutions, your IPL Photofacial results can last for months. We recommend that you schedule another treatment if you notice discoloration or fine lines returning.
Does an IPL Photofacial treatment hurt?
Some patients describe a tingling or heating sensation while having an IPL Photofacial, but not pain. Afterwards, you may be a bit sore and swollen. It’s also possible to experience some redness after an IPL Photofacial, so make sure you schedule your treatment at least a day or two before any special event. These side effects are all normal and should subside shortly after your treatment.
