  • Freckles and redness
  • Rosacea and melasma

The Types of IPL Photofacial Offered

LuvoLucent IPL Photofacial

We perform IPL Photofacial using the cutting-edge LuvoLucent IPL device for optimal skin rejuvenation. During the procedure, the handheld LuvoLucent device emits controlled pulses of broad-spectrum light, which penetrate the skin’s outer layer, targeting and breaking down the pigment responsible for various skin imperfections, such as sunspots, age spots, and rosacea. The body’s natural healing processes sweep away the damaged cells, revealing a clearer, more even-toned complexion over time.

Sciton BBL Photofacial

The Sciton BBL (BroadBand Light) Photofacial is a well-known skin rejuvenation treatment that uses BBL technology to address various skin concerns. This non-invasive procedure uses a broad spectrum of light to target specific skin issues like sun damage, age spots, and rosacea. The light energy penetrates the skin’s surface, stimulating collagen production and promoting the body’s natural healing processes. Over time, this results in smoother, more youthful-looking skin with an improved complexion.

IPL Photofacial FAQs

How does IPL Photofacial work?

IPL Photofacial works on the principle of selective photothermolysis. A handheld device emits intense pulses of high-intensity light across a broad spectrum of wavelengths. These pulses target chromophores (color-absorbing molecules) in the skin, such as melanin and hemoglobin. The light energy is absorbed by these chromophores, which convert it into heat. This heat selectively damages the targeted tissue, such as pigmented lesions or blood vessels, while sparing the surrounding skin. The body’s natural processes then remove the damaged tissue.

Is IPL Photofacial painful?

Most individuals report minimal discomfort during the procedure, often describing it as a mild stinging or snapping sensation. A cooling gel is applied to the skin to enhance comfort. A topical numbing cream can also be applied to improve comfort when a larger area is treated.

How long does an IPL Photofacial session take?

IPL sessions are relatively quick, usually lasting 20 to 30 minutes for a small area, like the face. Larger treatment areas may take slightly longer.

Is there any downtime after an IPL Photofacial?

There is typically minimal downtime associated with IPL Photofacial. Some individuals may experience mild redness or swelling immediately after the treatment, but this usually subsides within a few hours to a day. You can resume daily activities immediately, but avoid strenuous workouts and direct sunlight for a day or two.

How many IPL sessions are needed for optimal results?

The number of sessions required varies depending on individual skin concerns. Many people see noticeable improvements after a single treatment, but a series of sessions (usually 3 to 5) a few weeks apart may be recommended for optimal results.

Are there any side effects or risks associated with IPL Photofacial?

Common side effects include temporary redness, swelling, and mild discomfort. Serious complications are rare but can include blistering, scarring, or changes in pigmentation. Dr. Burchhardt will offer detailed aftercare instructions to reduce the risk of complications.
