How it Works
An IPL photofacial is a light treatment that uses an IPL device to deliver an arc of light energy that penetrates all levels of the skin. This procedure can be performed on multiple body parts including the face, neck, chest, hands, and legs.
Usually, the head of the IPL device is designed to be larger than most laser spot sizes, allowing for the rapid treatment of large body areas. And the best part? The procedure doesn’t harm the epidermis (surface of the skin). This means that you can expect to be up and running a few days following your treatment. However, to see optimal results, most people need more than one IPL photofacial. Severe cases might need up to six treatments (performed four to six weeks apart). The cost of an IPL photofacial varies depending on the number of treatments and the size of the treatment area.
