IPL Photo Facial

Uneven pigmentation can be one of the biggest roadblocks to flawless skin. No matter how dedicated you are to maintaining a soft texture, reducing wrinkles, and keeping your skin hydrated, discoloration can still stick around.

If you’re looking to tone down rosacea or minimize dark spots, an IPL photo facial at our Fenton, Michigan, med spa may be the way to go. IPL—which stands for intense pulsed light—can remove pigmented patches, giving you evenly colored skin you can feel confident in with or without makeup.

What Is an IPL Photo Facial?

An IPL photo facial is a light-based treatment designed to minimize coloration issues in the skin. Great candidates for IPL, who visit from Flint, Holly, Linden, Parshallville, and other nearby communities, are looking to treat:

  • Rosacea
  • Sun spots
  • Age spots
  • Port wine stains
  • Freckles

IPL can be used on the face, neck, chest, hands, shoulders, back, arms, and legs.

If dullness in your skin’s color is a concern, you may also want to try a peel or facial.

How Much Does an IPL Photo Facial Cost?

At REJUV AVE., the cost of an IPL photo facial is:

  • IPL – One Area (Face, Chest, Neck, Upper or Lower Arms OR Legs, Shoulders): $300
  • IPL – Hands: $200
  • IPL – Spot treatment 2×2 Inch area: $100

You can save 10% buy when doing a series of 3 treatments. Purchasing in these quantities will achieve optimal results.

How Does IPL Work?

IPL works by directing intense pulses of light at your skin, where it’s absorbed by melanin and blood vessels in deeper layers without harming the outer layers. This causes the pigment to break down and be naturally removed by the body, leaving behind an evenly pigmented surface.

Do IPL Treatments Hurt?

During an IPL treatment, it’s normal to feel some warmth and a slight sting, similar to the feeling of a rubber band snap. The device has a cooling tip, which will soothe your skin during the treatment. The whole thing only takes about 30 minutes.

What Is IPL Recovery Like?

Recovery is fairly quick. Your face may be a bit pink and warm, similar to the feeling of a sunburn, for a day or 2 after your treatment. It’s super important to stay on top of your sunscreen use during this time.

How Many IPL Treatments Will I Need?

Many people find they get the best results with a series of about 3 treatments spaced a month apart. We’ll talk with you about how many sessions you may need when we develop your personalized treatment plan at your consultation.

How Long After an IPL Treatment Do You See Results?

You may notice your dark spots getting darker for about 7 to 10 days before naturally flaking off. At this point, you should notice clearer, more evenly pigmented skin.

How Long Do IPL Results Last?

The lifespan of IPL results depends on things like your exposure to the sun, lifestyle, hormones, and genetics, but results are generally long-lasting. We typically recommend 1 or 2 maintenance treatments a year to keep your skin looking its absolute best. Treatments such as HydraFacials® can keep your skin healthy and glowing in the meantime.
