What is an IPL Photofacial?

An Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) Photofacial is a 30- to 45-minute treatment that uses light to restore tone and beauty to your skin. Your certified Cynosure technician uses the Icon laser to eliminate hyperpigmentation and hypervascularity and to boost the production of rejuvenating collagen.

What are the benefits of an IPL Photofacial?

When you receive an IPL Photofacial at Body Sculpt, you’re doing more than improving the appearance of your skin by eliminating unsightly lesions and veins. Your Icon expert uses the intense pulses of light to stimulate your skin to grow more strands of supportive, strengthening collagen. Increased collagen helps your skin act and look like younger skin. Your skin will be thicker, more supple, and more elastic.

Your Body Sculpt aesthetic professional uses the IPL photofacial to:

  • Resurface your skin
  • Reduce fine lines and wrinkles
  • Clear spider veins
  • Remove brown spots and sun spots

Before your treatment, your Body Sculpt specialist measures the amount of melanin in the lesions you wish to target with the patented Skintel® Melanin Reader™. Your expert then translates the reading into precise settings that individualize your IPL Photofacial to your unique needs.

How often should I have an IPL Photofacial?

You can rejuvenate, retexture, and clear your skin in just three to six IPL Photofacial treatments. Your aesthetic expert schedules your appointments about four to eight weeks apart so that your skin has time to heal, clear the targeted lesions, and produce new collagen. The time between sessions also allows you to appreciate the benefits of your IPL photofacial, so you can decide whether you have reached your goal or if you need another treatment or two.

After you are satisfied with how radiant and healthy your skin looks, you only need intermittent touch-ups to maintain your glow. Many men and women come back once a year for a maintenance treatment. Some find they can go for several years without a touch-up.

If you want to maintain the benefits of your IPL Photofacial, you should strictly avoid the sun and use high-SPF sun protection daily — even on cloudy days. Your aesthetic professional also recommends an exceptional skincare routine to keep your skin clear and healthy.
