Restore Your Youthful Beauty

Our IPL photofacial in Salt Lake City is an innovative skin treatment that uses filtered light to help minimize or remove many common skin problems like:

  • Blemishes
  • Acne scars
  • Uneven skin tone
  • Broken capillaries
  • Fine lines and wrinkles

How it works

The IPL photofacial works through the use of light energy that is transformed into thermal energy to heat up outer skin layers. This stimulates skin cells into regenerating and replenishing collagen to restore the natural beauty of your skin, making it smoother and more youthful.

An IPL photofacial can eliminate skin redness caused by tiny blood vessels, as well as minimize unwanted melanin that causes abnormal pigmentation. The treatment is considered to be safe and effective for most skin types.

To achieve optimal results, most providers recommend that individuals undergo two to four IPL photofacial treatments annually.

Best candidates

You may make a good candidate for an IPL photofacial if any of the following apply to you:

  • Dissatisfied with the overall appearance of your skin
  • Enlarged pores or scars caused by acne, surgery or injury
  • Abnormal pigmentation due to aging or sun damage
  • Realistic expectations regarding your results

Those with darker skin tones, deep wrinkles or scars, and women who are pregnant do not make good candidates for an IPL photofacial.

What to expect

When you arrive for your IPL photofacial in Salt Lake City, your provider will begin by thoroughly cleaning the area to be treated. After applying a cool gel, they will apply light pulses to your skin using a handheld device. You will be provided with special glasses to protect your eyes from the pulsed light while the device is operating. Your comfort is assured throughout the procedure, which utilizes advanced cooling technology.

IPL photofacials are not painful, but you may experience a mild stinging sensation whenever the pulses are touching your skin. Some people report this sensation as being similar to that of being lightly snapped with a rubber band. A complete session should only take about 20 to 30 minutes, depending upon the size of the treatment area.

Once your Genesis Lifestyle Medicine provider in Salt Lake City has completed your treatment, their work is largely over. Then it is up to you to navigate a successful recovery period at home so that you obtain the very best results possible from your IPL photofacial.

IPL Photofacial Recovery Timeline

An IPL photofacial is a relatively mild treatment that involves a fairly short recovery period. Although each individual may respond somewhat differently, here is what you can generally expect following your treatment:

24 Hours After

You can expect to experience some degree of skin redness in the first 24 hours after your IPL photofacial. In fact, this is the most commonly reported effect that people notice after their treatment.

Your skin may feel somewhat tender and raw. You may even notice some skin blisters. The important thing to keep in mind is that you should not pick or scratch the treated skin, even if it begins peeling. You want your skin to remain as undisturbed as possible to prevent complications like scars.

One Week After

Within one week after your IPL photofacial in Salt Lake City, you should begin noticing that the treated area is healing fairly rapidly. It is normal to notice some skin peeling, crusting and scabbing. Continue allowing your body to heal naturally without picking or peeling skin away from vulnerable, freshly forming skin underneath.

One Month Later

Since an IPL photofacial does not involve incisions or surgery, you should be mostly healed by this time. Continue to avoid prolonged sun exposure for now. You should also be applying a good sunscreen each day to protect your rapidly healing skin.
