Frequently Asked Questions
IPL photo facials work by targeting a beam of light to your specific treatment area(s), such as enlarged brown spots or large blood vessels. Using a series of multiple light wavelengths, IPL photo facials remove the abnormalities throughout your face without causing damage or scarring Best of all, IPL treatments work to stimulate your natural collagen production to tighten the tissue surrounding your treatment area(s).
IPL laser treatments work by gently penetrating the top layers of your skin to eliminate the underlying pigment and vessels causing damage to your skin. Unlike other treatments, such as chemical peels that remove an outer layer of skin and require significant healing time, the outer skin itself is not damaged, resulting in a significantly reduced healing process.
Using the Palomar Starlux 500, our IPL facials use a broad spectrum of multiple light wavelengths to help individuals of all ages to achieve fresh, smooth, and vibrant skin tone and texture.

Your session may cause minimal discomfort that can last between 24 to 48 hours. However, you can alleviate any discomfort with cold air or a cooling system.
Following your procedure, you may experience mild to moderate redness, which will last between 1 to 3 days. The pigment in your targeted treatment area(s) will also turn darker over the next 24 to 48 hours. However, this skin will naturally exfoliate (or flake off) within 1 week.
Your session(s) will take between 15 to 20 minutes. With minimal downtime, you can return to your daily activities immediately following your IPL procedure.
Most of our patients experience results immediately after their IPL photo facial, and these results will continue to maximize over the next week. With a series of treatments, spaced 1 month apart, our patients have reported experiencing results for several months, and even years, after their treatments!
Although results are immediate, several sessions are required for a full-facial treatment. Depending on the severity of your treatment area(s), we recommend a minimum of 3 to 5 treatments. Your treatments will be spaced 1 month apart.
