IPL Photofacial

What is IPL Photofacial?

At Magnolia Dermatology, our expert Licensed Esthetician and Laser Professional (LE, LHRP), Randee Dickinson, provides IPL photofacial treatments. This non-invasive cosmetic procedure utilizes high-intensity pulses of light to target a range of skin issues, including:

  • Sun damage
  • Age spots
  • Freckles
  • Rosacea
  • Broken capillaries
  • Uneven skin tone
  • Fine lines and wrinkles


How Does IPL Photofacial Work?

Randee takes great care to prepare your skin for an IPL photofacial. She applies a cooling gel to protect your skin and ensure the treatment's effectiveness. Then, the IPL device emits pulses of broad-spectrum light, penetrating your skin to target melanin (pigment) and hemoglobin (blood vessels), all without harming the surrounding tissue.

As the targeted pigmented cells absorb the light energy, they gradually heat up and break down. Over time, your body's natural healing process kicks in, eliminating these damaged cells and revealing smoother, clearer, and more radiant skin.

Benefits of IPL Photofacial:

Our patients have experienced a wide range of benefits from IPL photofacial treatments, including:

  • Improved skin texture and tone
  • Reduction in the appearance of sun damage, age spots, and freckles
  • Minimization of redness and flushing associated with rosacea
  • Reduction in the appearance of broken capillaries
  • Stimulated collagen production, resulting in firmer and more youthful-looking skin


What to Expect During Treatment:

During your IPL photofacial session, which typically lasts 30-45 minutes, you'll feel a mild stinging or snapping sensation, akin to the snap of a rubber band against your skin. To achieve optimal results, Randee may recommend a series of treatments spaced several weeks apart.

Aftercare Tips:

After your IPL photofacial treatment, it's essential to care for your skin properly. Here are some tips to help you along the way:

  • Avoid sun exposure and remember to apply sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher to shield your skin from UV damage.
  • Steer clear of harsh skincare products and treatments for a few days post-treatment.
  • Keep your skin hydrated and moisturized to support the healing process.
  • Follow any specific post-treatment instructions provided.
