What is IPL?

IPL Photofacial, or Intense Pulsed Light therapy, is a versatile treatment designed to target various skin issues, from age spots to sun damage, offering a solution for those seeking rejuvenated, more even-toned skin. Our IPL – Photofacial treatment, also known as Intense Pulsed Light therapy, offers a revolutionary solution for a variety of skin concerns. Whether you’re dealing with age spots, sun damage, rosacea, or uneven skin tone, IPL can help rejuvenate and restore your complexion.

IPL works by using short pulses of high-intensity light to target and treat specific skin concerns, stimulating collagen production and improving skin texture. At Hideout, we use InMode’s Lumecca™ IPL system, renowned for its effectiveness and versatility. This treatment can be used on any part of the body, providing excellent results with minimal downtime.

Who Is a Candidate for IPL Photofacial?

Ideal candidates for IPL photofacial treatments are individuals with:

  1. Sun Damage: IPL can effectively target and reduce the appearance of sun spots, freckles, and other signs of sun damage.
  2. Rosacea: IPL can help alleviate the redness and flushing associated with rosacea.
  3. Vascular Lesions: IPL is effective in treating vascular lesions such as spider veins, port wine stains, and leg telangiectasias.
  4. Skin Redness: IPL can reduce redness caused by broken capillaries and other vascular issues.
  5. Uneven Skin Tone: IPL can improve skin tone by targeting areas of hyperpigmentation and creating a more uniform complexion.
  6. Acne Scarring: IPL can help improve the appearance of acne scars by stimulating collagen production and promoting skin renewal.

It is important to consult with a qualified skincare professional to determine if IPL photofacial is the right treatment for your specific skin concerns.

What to Expect

During your consultation, our expert treatment provider will thoroughly assess your skin on areas like the face, neck, chest, and hands to identify sun damage, vascular issues, and pigment irregularities that can benefit from IPL treatment.

Before Your Treatment:

  • We recommend avoiding direct sunlight before your appointment.
  • If you’ve recently tanned, it’s best to wait before scheduling your treatment.
  • Certain medications can increase sensitivity to light, so consult your doctor before stopping any prescribed medications.

During Your Treatment:

  • IPL treatments are typically quick, lasting about 30-60 minutes.
  • You may experience slight redness and swelling during the treatment, which is normal.
  • Some patients report feeling a mild warming sensation and slight discomfort.

After Your Treatment:

  • Refrain from using scented lotions, exfoliants, or engaging in aggressive scrubbing.
  • Initially, freckles and sunspots may darken before flaking off within one to three weeks.
  • Post-treatment, you may feel a sensation similar to a mild sunburn, but applying an ice pack can help alleviate any discomfort.
