IPL is a great way to rejuvenate your face and reverse the damage that sun and age can do to your skin. An IPL photofacial treatment stimulates the natural growth of collagen in the deepest layers of the skin. That collagen growth improves the texture of the skin, reduces sun spots and age spots, and diminishes the appearance of the wrinkles and fine lines that tend to give away our age.
In fact, there are more benefits to an IPL photofacial than you might think.
Not effective for darker skin tones.
IT CAN REPAIR SMALL BLOOD VESSELS
Over time, many of us begin to notice the small blood vessels in our faces becoming more visible. There are many reasons that these facial veins may become prominent, but there’s one treatment that can clear them away: an IPL photofacial treatment. Whatever pigmentation or blood vessel irregularities you’re experiencing, an IPL photofacial treatment can help.
IT CAN GET YOUR ACNE UNDER CONTROL
Acne plagues millions of Americans, and it’s not a problem confined to those in their teens. Many people struggle with acne well into their 20s and even later, and adult acne can show up at any time. Acne causes the skin to turn red and become inflamed, and that’s precisely where IPL photofacial treatment can help. An IPL photofacial treatment eliminates large pores and reduces your acne breakouts. Best of all, addressing the problem with IPL means you don’t have to constantly use those drying topical products that are so hard on your skin.
IT’S EASY AND FAST
Many facial treatments require a lot of time out of your day, but that’s not the case with the IPL photofacial treatment. At the most, you can expect this treatment to take 30 minutes, and many facials are completed in just 15. It’s simple to fit this facial into the modern busy workday. Whether you fit it in between classes, over your lunch break at work, or squeeze it in after work before you head home for the day, nearly anyone can find time for this facial.
IT’S NOT JUST FOR THE FACE
You might be surprised to learn that IPL photofacial treatment is useful on more areas than just the face. Most people start out with facial treatment, but once you see the results, you’ll probably wonder if it can be applied elsewhere. The good news is that it can be! You can use an IPL photofacial treatment on your neck, shoulders, or chest.

It will reduce the redness in your skin and give you a more even, natural-looking complexion.
