Ready for your closeup?

Photofacial IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) is a laser light treatment that drastically reduces the appearance of age spots, freckles, broken capillaries and rosacea, all while tightening the skin.* Photofacials use intense pulsed light that emits multiple wavelengths into the skin to target pigment-producing cells below the surface. The light energy is converted to heat energy and that heat destroys the excessive melanin-producing cells, eventually dispersing pigmented areas.* IPL Photofacial can be used on the face, décolleté, and hands.

Is Photofacial IPL right for me?

IPL treatments are appropriate for most Fitzpatrick skin types. Patients with dark tans or with melasma are not ideal candidates. The light rays are attracted to pigment, and as a result, darker skin tones may become discolored and melasma patches may darken. During your consult at Bare Medical, your provider will assess and determine if a Photofacial is the best treatment for your personal aesthetic goals.

What can I expect from my Photofacial IPL?

Photofacial IPL is not traditionally described as painful, but it may be uncomfortable for some patients. Often times patients describe the sensation as similar to a rubber band snapping on their skin. While the length of a Photofacial IPL varies depending on the treatment area, a facial procedure can take up to 45 minutes and may leave the skin slightly red or puffy. Otherwise, there is no downtime post-treatment and patients are free to return to their normal skincare routine immediately.

When will I notice my results?

Photofacial results improve over time; final results can be seen after 3 months.* Sun protection and skin care maintenance are essential to the longevity of the results and a new series of treatments are recommended every year for optimal results.* Sunburns and overexposure will bring back old spots and freckles, so be sure to wear your sunscreen!
