Photo Facials Q & A
What are IPL facials?
These are laser facials using intense-pulsed light (IPL) to improve the look and tone of your skin. The light energy stimulates collagen development and cellular renewal.
Photo facials can treat:
- Skin pigmentation like sun spots and dark patches
- Uneven skin tone and texture
- Broken capillaries and spider veins
- Fine wrinkles
There’s no “one size fits all” when it comes to health and beauty. We work closely with you to design personalized plans that match your needs and goals. Our plans not only focus on aesthetics but also on providing care that enhances your overall health and well-being.
How do photo facials work?
The IPL energy used to perform photo facials consists of controlled pulses of light energy. These pulses target pigments in the outer layer of your skin but don’t damage the surrounding skin.
A photo facial breaks up the pigmented cells of age spots, melasma, and sun damage. Your body removes them from the area and flushes them out of your system. You end up with younger, healthier, and more even-toned skin.
What is it like to get a photo facial?
Photo facials are an in-office procedure. The whole appointment takes about an hour.
Your Southern Secrets Med Spa and Clinic technician cleans your skin and applies a numbing lotion to the treatment area to reduce any discomfort.
You lie back and relax on the exam chair as your technician glides the IPL device over your skin. You’ll feel a zapping sensation as the IPL energy targets the problem areas.
What can I expect after a photo facial?
Your photo facial will probably cause your skin to be slightly red and swollen — like a mild sunburn — for about 4-6 hours after treatment.
Any dark spots or discoloration may turn slightly darker after your photo facial. But within two weeks, the areas peel away, and you’re left with healthier, more evenly toned skin.
Most people get the best results after a series of 3-7 treatments. You’ll schedule these 2-4 weeks apart.
