Benefits of IPL Photofacials

In Blog by Achieve Wellness Spa

IPL stands for Intense Pulse Light and it is the most versatile facial procedure we offer. The IPL enters into the dermal layer of the skin to remove damaged skin and stimulate collagen growth. The IPL has many benefits to all types of skin, it can help to clear mild acne, its great for reducing redness in acne and rosacea, hyperpigmentation, smooth uneven skin tones, and even help eliminate fine lines and wrinkles by stimulating the production of collagen.

During your initial consultation with us our trained laser technician will work with you to help understand your concerns about your skin and to work on a treatment plan that is best suited to your needs. We recommend a small series of sessions but ultimately will be determined on your skin type and severity of your concerns.

Our IPL treatments is a 30 minute procedure where we will cleanse your skin, apply ultrasound gel to protect your outer layer of skin and to keep your skin cool while the flashing light works on a cellular level. The IPL will enter into the lower layer of your skin constricting blood vessels and stimulating healthier skin rejuvenation. After your treatment is complete we will apply a soothing aloe and SPF to protect your skin from UV rays.

Some clients experience mild discomfort during the treatment, facial flushing can be apparent afterward but will subside within a few hours of your treatment. We invite you to come in for a consultation and a test patch to see why the photofacial will be your best decision you could make for your skin!
