IPL Facial

A clear complexion is a sign of youth and vitality. As time goes on, the toll of UV rays, the environment, and age show up as age spots, sun damage, textural irregularities, fine lines and wrinkles, and hyperpigmentation. When this occurs, RegenMD offers IPL facial rejuvenation to even out tone and texture concerns and renew your youthful complexion.

Am I a good candidate?

IPL works well on patients with Fitzpatrick skin types I through III. Because IPL targets skin’s pigment, patients with deep tans or darker tones may have better results with different skin rejuvenation treatments.

A consultation with RegenMD will help you determine if you’re an ideal candidate for IPL facial treatment. You should disclose medical history such as skin cancer, keloid formation, open lesions, pregnancy, and current medications (including topical) at this time.

What results can I expect?

Overtime, an evening out of red and brown tones will occur. With a series of IPL facials to build on the renewal of previous sessions, the youthful, smooth glow of your skin will peak around 3-6 months. Your skin’s sun damage, age spots, and other hyperpigmentation concerns will fade, and your fine lines and wrinkles, acne or scarring, and other irregularities will smooth away. You’ll have a clear, radiant complexion that can defy your age. Accompanying medical grade skincare with amplify and help maintain your results.

How does it work?

IPL stands for Intense Pulsed Light, a multi-wavelength light therapy treatment that goes deep into the dermis to revitalize your skin’s condition at the cellular level. Because IPL light therapy reaches deeper into the tissues, the topmost layer of skin remains unharmed, significantly lowering the risk of side effects. Pigment in your cells absorbs the light, which is converted to heat, effectively resetting the clock on your skin’s cells.

IPL benefits include:

  • Reducing even the most stubborn sun spots and dark spots
  • Repairing visible blood vessels
  • Improving pigmentation irregularities from minor to severe
  • Combating acne and blemish issues such as blackheads, whiteheads, papules, pustules, nodules, cysts, sebum, bacteria, hormonal irritations, dead skin cells, and ingrown hairs
  • Diminishing the appearance of scars
  • Proven treatment of rosacea (along with other skin redness)
  • Stimulating collagen growth
  • Improving skin texture

What is a treatment like?

After a thorough cleansing, your skin is prepped for IPL light therapy to focus the wavelengths as they penetrate your skin. You’ll be given eye protection for safety. The treatment itself may cause a slight stinging sensation, but it is not significantly uncomfortable. Your treatment should last 30 minutes depending on the size of your treatment area.

The number of required treatments varies from patient to patient based on unique skin composition and aesthetic goals. The majority of patients see results after their first treatment. Continued and consistent monthly treatments are suggested to obtain and maintain optimal results. A customized treatment plan will be determined after your first service with us.

Is there any downtime?

Very few side effects are possible, such as minor redness and swelling following treatment. These usually only last a few hours, but in rare cases, can last a few days. Once redness or swelling disappears, the skin benefits in almost every aesthetic way. In extremely rare cases, lightening or darkening of the skin or scarring have occurred.
