How Does IPL Photofacial Work?

IPL photofacials utilize light energy, which becomes thermal energy. This safely heats up the skin under its surface, which triggers skin cell regeneration and the replenishment of collagen, restoring your skin's natural beauty. The result is noticeably smoother and more youthful skin.

The IPL photofacial has been found to be safe and effective for almost all skin types. For ideal results, you may want to undergo as many as four treatment sessions each year.

What To Expect

First, your provider will completely clean the treatment area. They will apply a cooling gel for your comfort and use a special handheld device to transmit light pulses into your skin tissue. You'll be wearing protective glasses so that your eyes are shielded from the pulsed light when the device is in operation.

Although an IPL photofacial is not painful, you may notice a slight stinging sensation when the device is in operation and in contact with your skin. Many people find this sensation is like that of having a rubber band lightly snapped against the skin. Each IPL photofacial session only takes around 25 minutes, depending upon the treatment area's size.


An IPL photofacial treatment is fairly easy on the skin, and only involves a relatively short recovery period. Here is what you can expect after your treatment session:

One Day Later

Don't be surprised if you have some minor skin redness for the first 24 hours after your treatment. Your skin may feel a bit tender at this time. If your skin blisters or peels, remember to avoid scratching or picking at it. Allow your skin to work its magic without interfering with the process.

One Month Later

Although you should avoid prolonged sun exposure, your skin should be mostly recovered from your IPL photofacial by this time. For now, be sure to apply a good sunscreen to your skin to protect it while it is remodeling.
