IPL Photofacial FAQs
IPL therapy can be a great solution for individuals suffering from wrinkling, sun damage, scars, and other skin conditions. However, there are a few instances where we do not recommend this service. If you are pregnant, prone to excess scarring (like keloids), sensitive to burns, or diabetic, IPL may not be a good fit for you.

IPL therapy is a safe and non-invasive service that uses technology approved by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA). As with any cosmetic treatment, it’s important to work with an experienced technician who knows how to keep you safe while catering to your unique skin type and goals.
If you have any questions or concerns about IPL photofacials, call the knowledgeable team at Laser & Wellness Center! We are always happy to help, and it’s our top priority to empower you with the information you need to make the best decision for your body, health, and goals.
As with all of our services, we begin by meeting with you in a complimentary consultation to learn about your specific goals while addressing any questions you may have. After this consultation, we will schedule your IPL photofacial appointment, which starts with a careful assessment of your skin.
Once our skilled IPL technician has inspected your skin, they will apply a cooling gel to the target area. Then the smooth IPL device will be placed on the target area, and pulses of light will begin. Sessions last anywhere from 60-90 minutes depending on what types of skin conditions you are treating.
Properly preparing for your IPL photofacial is an important step in ensuring you get the best results possible. To make sure your skin is ready for the treatment, you will want to avoid all of the following for 2 weeks leading up to your appointment:
- Tanning beds
- Chemical peels
- Collagen injections
We also strongly recommend that you do not take any aspirin, herbal supplements, or anti-inflammatory drugs prior to your IPL treatment. These medications can increase your risk of bleeding during the service.
Right after your IPL photofacial session, your skin may look red and feel similar to a sunburn. A cool compress can relieve discomfort, but the color and stinging sensation should subside within 4 to 6 hours. Any swelling should go down within a few days following your treatment.
To avoid irritating your skin, do not put any makeup, deodorant, fragrance, or lotion on the treated area for at least 24 areas. For the best results possible, we also recommend avoiding sun exposure for 2 weeks after your session. Moisturizing twice a day after the initial swelling has gone down is another great way to keep your skin looking and feeling healthy throughout the healing process.
Most patients will notice their IPL photofacial results within about 10 days. That said, each person is different, and exact healing times may vary.
Though IPL results can last indefinitely, your lifestyle will greatly determine how your skin will behave over time. Frequent sun exposure, smoking, or chronic stress can all lead to the eventual return of wrinkles or sun spots. Though IPL photofacials can greatly improve the health and appearance of your skin long-term, it cannot completely undo the aging process.
