IPL Q & A

How does IPL work?

The Icon intense pulsed light (IPL) aesthetic system is a way to rejuvenate your skin without doing anything invasive. Photofacial treatments work by forcing damaged skin cells, such as discolored lesions, to break apart.

These damaged cells absorb the light energy and gently heat them until they’re permanently destroyed. Over the following few weeks, treated skin cells shed away, allowing healthy new skin cells and tissues to rise to the surface.

What can IPL treat?

IPL sessions at Remedy Skin + Body can help with a wide variety of skin issues and concerns. Treatments are ideal for minimizing the appearance of:

  • Brown spots
  • Sun damage
  • Red spots
  • Pigmented lesions
  • Facial veins

Depending on how your skin responds to IPL sessions and what you’re having treated, you can have results and visibly even-toned skin in as quickly as 2-3 days. Vascular lesions take a bit longer to resolve. Stubborn spots such as these can take up to 10-14 days to improve.

Is an IPL photofacial painful?

You might feel some slight discomfort at times, but you shouldn’t be in pain during an IPL photofacial. Most men and women compare the sensation of IPL to getting snapped with a small rubber band, much like laser hair removal.

If you’re worried about pain, your dedicated aesthetic specialist at Remedy Skin + Body can provide a topical numbing cream or ice pack to decrease the sensation.

How many IPL treatments do I need?

Each IPL treatment package is tailored to the client. You can see dramatic results and a more even skin tone shortly after a single session. If you have severe sun damage or years of age spots that bother you, you might need a series of treatments.

In that case, you could need 3-5 treatments to achieve more beautiful vibrant skin. As with most types of aesthetic laser treatments, it’s best to wait at least 2-4 weeks between sessions to give your body a chance to shed treated skin cells.
