What is IPL Therapy, aka Photofacial?

IPL, also known as Intense Pulsed Light therapy or Photofacial, is a light-based treatment designed to improve uneven skin tone and texture with minimal downtime or need for surgery. At Saba Med Spa, this advanced procedure effectively targets red and brown pigmentation issues. It can remove unwanted brown spots, blood vessels, minimize pore size, stimulate collagen production, and even provide relief for dry eyes.

What does an IPL Photofacial do?

IPL Photofacial offers a wide range of benefits, including:

  • Minimizing pigmentation irregularities
  • Reducing or eliminating freckles
  • Addressing redness, including signs of rosacea
  • Minimizing sun damage
  • Stimulating collagen production
  • Removing unwanted hair
  • Treating broken blood vessels
  • Giving your skin a radiant glow
  • What are the common side effects of IPL Photofacial?

Common side effects of IPL Photofacial can include:

  • Sunburn-like sensation
  • Mild to moderate swelling
  • Initial darkening of spots
  • Possibility of bruising
  • Mild crusting or flakiness
  • Rare occurrence of blemishes (though it’s important to be informed)
  • Peppering effect, which is a positive outcome indicating the absorption of light breaking up pigments
    The peppering effect typically lasts for about 3-5 days and may vary based on the amount of sun damage, freckles, and brown spots present in the skin at the time of treatment.

What do I need to do before my IPL Treatment?

Prior to your IPL treatment, it is essential to:

  • Avoid sun exposure for at least two (2) weeks before and after the treatment
  • Stop using retinol, retinoids, or exfoliating products
  • Refrain from facial treatments like chemical peels, microneedling, and Neurotoxins before the IPL treatment to avoid complications.

What do I do after my IPL Treatment?

After your IPL treatment, follow these guidelines for optimal results:

  • Keep your face cool and avoid saunas, swimming pools, and hot showers
  • Use a gentle facial cleanser and lotion; consider using our recommended post-procedure kit for $36
  • Avoid intensive workouts that cause sweating for at least 2 days; light activities like walking are acceptable
  • Apply sunscreen daily to protect your skin
  • If your skin starts to flake, resist the urge to pick at it.
