Are you considering an IPL photorejuvenation treatment? Here’s everything you need to know about this minimally invasive procedure that’s taking the cosmetic surgery industry by storm. 

With all the products you hear about today, promising to make you look younger, you may be wondering about the benefits of cosmetic anti-ageing treatments such as photorejuvenation and Botox. You may even be more curious if you’ve tried some over-the-counter remedies, only to have disappointing results.

However, customized cosmetic procedures carried out by board-certified plastic surgeons have many benefits that OTC products don’t, including:

  • increased skin firmness and elasticity
  • enhanced facial radiance
  • elimination of unwanted fine lines and wrinkles

What is IPL Photorejuvenation Therapy?

IPL photorejuvenation therapy is a non-invasive and non-ablative skin treatment that uses high-intensity pulses of light to dramatically improve the appearance of the skin. Controlled wounds are made on the skin, which causes it to heal itself by creating new and healthier cells.

It can be used to treat several conditions, including:

  • fine wrinkles
  • age spots
  • hyperpigmentation
  • enlarged pores
  • small facial veins
  • freckles
  • rosacea
  • birthmarks and port wine stains
  • burn erythema
  • red spots

In addition to eliminating these aesthetic concerns, photorejuvenation also works to stimulate collagen and overall skin rejuvenation, resulting in brighter, healthier, and younger-looking skin.

3 Benefits of IPL Photorejuvenation

Ageing comes with visible effects and while these can’t be entirely avoided, they can be minimized significantly with IPL photorejuvenation therapy. Some of the benefits of opting for this treatment include:

  1. Improved skin tone. IPL photorejuvenation can be used to reduce and manage certain skin conditions such as rosacea, freckles, liver spots, and redness for a more even and attractive complexion.
  2. No more unwanted facial lines and wrinkles. By causing existing collagen to restrict and stimulating new collagen growth, IPL can reduce the appearance of fine lines and unwanted wrinkles. It also causes the skin to look firmer and smoother.
  3. Smaller pores. Some people have larger pores than others and they may often get filled with oil and dirt, compromising the quality of your skin. IPL plumps up the skin around your pores, shrinking them for an improved appearance.


What are the side effects of IPL Photorejuvenation?

One of the biggest benefits of IPL photorejuvenation treatments is that it is minimally invasive. This means that you’ll experience little to no downtime and very temporary and mild side effects.

However, keep in mind that after your treatment (approximately 48 hours - 1 week) you may experience the following:

  • Bruising
  • Skin redness
  • Tenderness
  • Unwanted changes in pigmentation
  • Scabbing

How long do the results of a photofacial treatment last?

The results from this cosmetic treatment can last as long as 5 years for most patients, but this is dependent on individuals continuing to use proper skin protection. It’s important to note that lines may appear sooner in areas of the skin where muscle activity is stronger.

Tip: Touch up treatments are recommended every 6 months to maintain treatment results.

I came in to enquire about some skin imperfections and botox etc. The staff was especially sensitive to what I needed and complimented what I already had. I hope the staff excel in the areas of dematology/age tolerations in their career. They are a must with this area of beauty. Thanks for all of the valuable information.
