IPL Photofacial Q & A

What is an IPL photofacial?

Intense pulsed light (IPL) is a bright and scattered type of light with multiple wavelengths. When you see it, it looks similar to the flash of a camera. 

This particular form of light has the ability to break down pigments in your skin, which is a major part of how a procedure called IPL photofacial works. Additionally, IPL stimulates skin healing and collagen production to address issues with texture. 

TYHHT® Studios PLLC uses LimeLight by Cutera® to perform IPL photofacials in just 30-60 minutes. You can target the skin on your face and areas beyond that, like your neck or chest, and you wear protective eyewear to avoid damaging your eyes with flashes of light. You can expect to feel a warming sensation as the device treats your skin. 

What are the results of an IPL photofacial?

IPL photofacials at TYHHT® Studios PLLC provide immense improvements for your skin’s tone and texture. This treatment is an excellent option for your skin if your primary concerns include:

  • Pigmented lesions
  • Age spots
  • Vascular lesions
  • Rosacea
  • Freckles
  • Birthmarks
  • Uneven texture

The treatment is customizable according to your skin tone and the specific issues you want to treat. You might need a few sessions to get the best possible results from an IPL photofacial, which your provider can advise you on during your initial treatment consultation. 

How should I care for my skin after an IPL photofacial?

Following an IPL photofacial at TYHHT® Studios PLLC, your skin might be more tender and sensitive than usual. There are multiple steps you can take to ensure smooth healing and protect your skin from unnecessary additional damage. 

After your treatment, you should:

  • Avoid hot baths, showers, and hot tubs for at least 48 hours
  • Avoid picking at any blisters or scabs on your skin
  • Avoid strenuous physical activity for at least a day or two
  • Use plenty of sunscreen and take other steps to protect your skin from the sun
  • Use only gentle skin care products without harsh chemicals or exfoliants
  • Apply moisturizer regularly

Dr. Wills can offer product recommendations for serums, moisturizers, and others that can benefit your skin as it recovers from a photofacial. You can expect all crusting, redness, and bruising to be gone in under 10 days after your treatment.
