What to Expect: The IPL Photofacial Process

During an IPL Photofacial procedure, you can expect a comfortable and relatively quick experience. The process typically begins with thoroughly cleansing the treatment area to remove makeup, dirt, or oils. Dr. Panossian or a trained technician will then apply a cooling gel to the skin to enhance comfort and protect the surface from the IPL device. Next, the IPL device emits broad-spectrum light pulses, penetrating the skin and targeting pigment cells or blood vessels responsible for various skin concerns. The targeted cells absorb this light energy, causing them to heat up and eventually be eliminated by the body's natural processes.

The procedure is non-invasive and generally well-tolerated by most patients. Depending on the size of the treatment area, a session typically lasts between 20 to 30 minutes. Multiple sessions may be recommended to achieve optimal results, spaced several weeks apart to allow the skin to heal between treatments. As the IPL Photofacial targets specific skin concerns such as sun damage, pigmentation irregularities, and vascular lesions, the science behind it lies in the selective absorption of light energy by the targeted cells, leading to their gradual elimination and the rejuvenation of the skin.

IPL Photofacial Results

Following an IPL Photofacial treatment, patients typically experience minimal downtime and can resume their normal activities immediately. Some individuals may notice mild redness, swelling, or a sensation resembling a sunburn in the treated area, but these effects usually subside within a few hours to a day. It's essential to protect the skin from direct sunlight and use a gentle skincare routine during recovery to avoid irritation and promote optimal healing. Results from IPL Photofacial treatments gradually become apparent over the following days to weeks as the targeted pigment cells or blood vessels are naturally eliminated by the body, revealing clearer, more evenly toned skin. Multiple sessions may be recommended for optimal results depending on the specific skin concerns being addressed and the individual's response to treatment. Dr. Panossian may schedule follow-up appointments to assess progress, address any concerns, and tailor the treatment plan to ensure the best outcomes for each patient.
