What is an IPL Photofacial?

Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) is a non-laser light therapy treatment that reduces:


Age spots

Brown Spots

Dark Spots


Varicose veins

Skin discoloration

Fine lines



Sun Damaged Skin



Like laser hair removal, an IPL treatment also removes unwanted hair and acts as an acne treatment as well as removing many other unsightly facial irregularities. IPL targets the skin, which is made of melanin. The energy emitted by the handheld IPL device converts to heat, in the form of wavelengths of light. This powerful method of pinpointing intense pulsed light on unwanted skin flaws results in their diminished appearance.

Does IPL Work?

The methodology behind the genius of the IPL photofacial treatment is that it tricks the skin into thinking it has sustained a wound, which the skin then sets to repair by producing collagen—the skin’s secret to youth. The IPL device penetrates the outer layer of the skin, gently heating the second layer, which is what produces the “wound” response. This stimulates blood flow and helps eradicate unwanted cells, revealing fresh, younger-looking skin. This proven method results in a noticeable decrease in many unappealing skin conditions. Depending on what area is being treated and how severe the blemish is, a few treatments are usually needed to reach your ideal outcome.

IPL Photofacials for Different Body Areas

IPL photofacials offer a versatile solution for addressing various skin imperfections and concerns across different areas of the body. While commonly performed on the face, IPL can effectively treat other body areas as well. The neck, chest, hands, and legs are frequently targeted to reduce signs of sun damage, age spots, and pigmented area. By adjusting the settings of the IPL device, our estheticians can customize your IPL treatment to specifically target the unique needs of each body area. This flexibility makes IPL photofacials a comprehensive option for achieving overall skin rejuvenation from head to toe.

Customized IPL Treatment Plans

The success of IPL photofacials lies in the development of personalized treatment plans. During your initial consultation at our medical spa, our trained estheticians will assess your skin conditions, concerns, and treatment goals. Based on this evaluation, we will tailored an IPL treatment plan. The plan will outline the recommended number of sessions needed to achieve optimal results and the appropriate settings for each treatment. By customizing your IPL experience, we can ensure you receive the most effective and targeted treatment for your specific skin concerns.

Combining IPL with Other Treatments

For enhanced results, consider combining an IPL photofacials with other cosmetic treatments. Some of our other services such as microdermabrasion, chemical peels, or dermal fillers might be best combined with IPL photofacials to give you the best result for your skin goals. These additional treatments can address specific skin concerns that may not be fully resolved by IPL alone. Combining modalities allows for a comprehensive approach to skin rejuvenation, targeting multiple aspects such as texture, tone, and volume. We can create a personalized treatment plan to incorporate these treatments, maximizing the overall outcome and your satisfaction.

IPL Photofacials for Men

IPL photofacials are not limited to women; they have gained popularity among men seeking to address various skin concerns. Men can benefit from IPL treatments to reduce the appearance of sun damage, minimize razor bumps, and improve overall skin tone and texture. IPL can effectively target common skin issues faced by men, such as acne scars, enlarged pores, and uneven pigmentation. The non-invasive nature of IPL photofacials makes them an attractive option for men looking to rejuvenate their skin without extensive downtime or recovery periods.

Benefits of IPL

Have you ever wished you could get rid of embarrassing acne scars, age spots, uneven skin coloration, or that birthmark that you do not think is “cute” despite what your favorite aunt tells you? Well, you can! These are just some of the benefits of getting a non-invasive IPL photofacial. You’ll wonder why you didn’t get it sooner! And while no one can stop the aging process, if you take great care of your skin, the treatment results can last many years or even be permanent. The best part? The procedure requires little to no downtime.

Risks of IPL Photofacial Skin Rejuvenation

The IPL photofacial is a relatively safe procedure with few risks. Common side effects include redness and swelling, which usually subside within 24 hours. You might also experience light bruising, itching, and mild stinging. If you are on a medication (either topical or oral) that causes photosensitivity, this could be a contraindication for the IPL procedure. In rare instances, IPL photofacial skin rejuvenation can cause blisters, scars, skin discolorations, and burns.

Post-Treatment Care and Maintenance

Proper post-treatment care is essential for maximizing the benefits of IPL photofacials and maintaining long-term results. After each session, be sure to follow the specific guidelines provided by our estheticians. These guidelines typically includes avoiding direct sunlight, applying a broad-spectrum sunscreen, and using gentle skin care products to nourish and protect your skin. We may recommend regular maintenance sessions to sustain the improvements achieved through IPL treatment. By adhering to a personalized skincare routine and scheduling periodic touch-ups, you can enjoy the long-lasting effects of your IPL photofacial!

Understanding the Difference Between IPL and Laser Treatments

IPL and laser treatments are both popular choices for skin rejuvenation, but they differ in their mechanisms and applications. While lasers emit a single, focused wavelength of light, IPL employs a broad spectrum of wavelengths. This allows IPL to address multiple skin concerns simultaneously. Laser treatments are often more precise and suitable for specific concerns, while IPL is versatile and can treat a broader range of issues.

IPL Photofacial FAQ

How much doesn an IPL Photofacial cost?

The cost of your IPL photofacial will depend on the severity of your condition and the number of treatments it will require to achieve your desired result. Your practitioner will discuss this with you beforehand. On average, a single treatment is between $300 and $400. At Modern MedSpa, we charge $300 for one, and $850 for 3.

How many IPL Photofacial treatments will I need?

The number of IPL photofacial procedures you will need will depend on the severity of the skin issue you are targeting. Most people find that 3-5 treatments (given 3-4 weeks apart) deliver ideal results. Your genetics, lifestyle, and depth of your original skin concern will all play a factor in how many treatments you require.

How long does each IPL photofacial take?

An IPL photofacial treatment can take anywhere between 30 and 90 minutes. The size and number of areas you are targeting will affect the length of your treatment.

What skin type can get an IPL photofacial?

Light and moderate skin tones experience the best outcomes from the IPL photofacial treatment. Darker skin is more prone to hyperpigmentation or burning with this procedure. Laser treatment might be a better option for darker skin because, unlike IPL, the laser emits only a single wavelength of light.

How long does it take to see results from an IPL photofacial

Results can typically be seen in a week to 10 days (sometimes sooner), but improvements will occur over time. The best results can often be noticed in 3 to 6 months. Successive treatments will improve the appearance as well. Each person’s skin is different, so variations will occur. Some people enjoy an IPL photofacial touch-up once a year for maintenance.
