What is the IPL PhotoFacial?

Are you bothered by signs of aging, sun damage, or conditions like rosacea? An IPL PhotoFacial can correct a wide range of skin concerns with no invasive procedures. This treatment breaks up uneven pigmentation while triggering new collagen for a smoother, more youthful skin texture. 

What is the IPL PhotoFacial?

An Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) PhotoFacial treats superficial skin issues like fine lines, acne scarring, enlarged pores, and uneven skin tone. Unlike a laser, IPL uses a broad spectrum of light to target more skin concerns with one treatment. At Manhattan Aesthetics, we recommend IPL for skin resurfacing to give you a brighter, smoother complexion.

How Does an IPL PhotoFacial Work?

During an IPL treatment, pulses of light travel through the skin without harming it. When wavelengths of light hit red or brown pigment molecules, they heat the pigments and cause them to break apart. As the light reaches into the dermis, it triggers the cells there to begin producing more collagen. This new collagen will improve skin texture, firmness, and smoothness. 

What is Getting an IPL PhotoFacial Like?

IPL PhotoFacial treatments take place with cooling gel on the skin to keep you comfortable. Some people report a tingling sensation during treatment. You will have covers placed over your eyes to protect them from the light. Each session may take about 30 to 60 minutes, although this depends on the size of the area you have treated. 

How Much Does an IPL PhotoFacial Cost?

Pricing for a treatment like IPL can vary widely based on:

  • Your provider
  • Your location
  • The area being treated
  • How many treatments you need

The cost of an IPL PhotoFacial can range from $400 to $4500. Schedule a consultation to discuss your goals and get a better idea of what you can expect. IPL can cost considerably less than some types of laser skin resurfacing.

How Long Does an IPL PhotoFacial Last?

You will usually need several sessions of IPL before you see your best results. Most people benefit from three to six treatments. We will help determine how many sessions you may need based on your skin concerns. 

How long your results last depends on many factors. Good sun protection will keep hyperpigmentation and other signs of sun damage from coming back as quickly. Your age, overall health, and skincare routine will all play a role. One to two maintenance treatments a year may be enough to keep your results looking refreshed and rejuvenated. 

Am I a Good Candidate for an IPL PhotoFacial?

Most people make good candidates for an IPL PhotoFacial. This non-invasive light treatment is suitable for most skin types and tones. You may not make a good candidate if you have an active skin condition at the time of treatment.
