But these Photofacial before and after pictures represent real patients and demonstrate the stellar results that are possible when this technique sensitive facial is performed by skilled and experienced beauty technicians.

How Does a Photofacial Work?

Photofacials utilize Intense Pulsed Light, or IPL, also known as Broad Band Light (BBL.,) to refresh and repair damaged skin. During the procedure, a highly trained laser specialist directs pulsated blasts of intense light at a specific skin area or imperfection. The energy from the light pulses safely penetrates the layers of skin, heating the tissue to stimulate a variety of biological responses that repair and rejuvenate the skin. Some of the therapeutic benefits of the IPL facial include:

Skin Rejuvenation: The process of IPL energy penetrating the skin and heating the upper layers of the dermis results in instant rejuvenation of the skin, making the face look more radiant. The heat also stimulates the production of collagen, which helps the skin remain firm, taut, and free of wrinkles. New collagen production also helps to further restore the skin and improve its texture and tone.¹

Improves Skin Tone and Corrects Hyperpigmentation: The same IPL energy that triggers the production of new collagen can also be used to target areas where sun damage has caused melanin to accumulate, resulting in uneven skin tone and hyper-pigmented skin, such as freckles and brown spots.

During the Photofacial procedure, the darker pigment in the melanin absorbs the IPL energy. This intense thermal energy causes the melanin to safely fracture and break apart into smaller pieces. The fragmented melanin is then small enough to be absorbed by the body, causing the hyperpigmentation to fade gradually.²

Reduce Redness Caused By Vascular Lesions: The thermal energy utilized during a Photofacial can also target and improve redness, which results from damaged or irregular blood vessels under the skin. These cause vascular irregularities like rosacea, port wine stains, broken capillaries, facial veins and other types of redness.

The hemoglobin in the blood absorbs the thermal energy of the IPL. This heats the fine blood vessels, causing them to constrict. The constriction shrinks small facial veins and reduces overall redness caused by rosacea.

Treat Active Acne and Shrink Pores: Photofacials can also be useful for treating mild to moderate active acne. Clinical studies have shown that the powerful IPL thermal energy of a Photofacial can destroy surface-level bacteria that can cause acne breakouts. IPL energy can also help the regulation of overactive sebaceous glands, which produces the oil that can cause acne. Photofacials are also effective in shrinking the appearance of pores, further contributing to the appearance of clear skin.³

Is Photofacial Only for The Face?

Don’t let the name fool you. The Photofacial can effectively treat all of the same skin issues such as sun-damaged, redness and rosacea, and hyperpigmentation, and deliver overall skin rejuvenation on the areas of the neck, chest, and shoulders. It is also a beneficial therapy for hand rejuvenation.

Do Photofacials Hurt?

The procedure is fast and non-invasive. Individual experiences do vary, but some patients experience minimal to no discomfort during the procedure. The sensation is sometimes compared to the snapping feeling of a rubber band or a warm sensation.

Photofacial Side Effects and Safety

The Photofacial IPL technology is FDA-approved and guaranteed to penetrate the skin safely. During the procedure, patients wear safety glasses or goggles to protect their eyes.

Photofacial side effects are very rare, but some patients experience mild redness or swelling. These effects generally fade within hours after the procedure. Veins may appear slightly redder and brown spots may appear slightly darker in the week following the procedure; this is normal. Patients are allowed to use makeup immediately post-procedure.

How Much Does a Photofacial Cost?

As with most cosmetic procedures and especially because of how customizable this technology is, Photofacial prices vary based on the individual patient and their desired treatment plan. During the free consultation at Truth and Beauty Spa, a skilled laser specialist will discuss Photofacial prices in detail. Any potential patient who is a good candidate for IPL skin rejuvenation will be helped by their personal skin specialist to tailor a treatment plan that fits your skin and budgetary needs.

Photofacial Results*

IPL facials are highly customizable treatments that allow the laser technician to focus on the specific area of concern that is unique to each client. The IPL laser can be calibrated to specific light wavelengths, which are optimized to address highly specific issues such as acne or irregular pigmentation. This allows multiple skin conditions to be treated at once, reducing overall treatment time for patients. Your results will depend on the specific issue being treated, which will be discussed further during your complimentary consultation.

Experiences vary by individual, but typical patients see results after 3-5 treatments, generally spaced 30 days apart.*
