An IPL photofacial is sometimes called photo rejuvenation or even just a photofacial. IPL, which stands for intense pulsed light, photofacials use bursts of light to treat specific skin conditions. This is different from a laser treatment in which concentrated beams of light are used. The pulses of light penetrate deeply into the skin and stimulate collagen production. As a result, IPL photofacials can be a quick and painless option for improving your skin.

Rosacea is an inflammatory skin condition that causes redness and acne-like bumps to develop. Severe cases of rosacea can cause extreme redness, bumpy and oily skin, and rough patches. IPL treatments are effective in reducing the severity of rosacea symptoms — even in tough-to-treat cases.
Sunspots are often seen on the skin that's frequently exposed to the sun, which is why the hands and face are most often impacted. You can reduce your risk of developing sunspots by wearing sunscreen (year-round!) and avoiding excessive sun exposure. However, if you already have sun spots, don’t fret. IPL treatments can reduce the appearance of sunspots.
Rejuvenate your skin
Because IPL photofacials stimulate collagen production, you’ll notice that your skin seems rejuvenated after your session. That’s because collagen is what gives your skin strength and elasticity. In the days and weeks after your session, your new stores of collagen help to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Shrink your pores
Everyone has pores, but when they get stretched out (by loss of collagen, for example), they can appear bigger. Because an IPL photofacial can firm your skin and increase collagen, your pores will appear smaller. That’s because your skin won’t seem as loose and won’t stretch each pore.
Try an IPL photofacial
IPL photofacials are quick, painless, and address a variety of skin conditions. But it gets better. Downtime is minimal, which means you won't have to devote weeks to staying at home recovering. You will have to protect your skin from the sun, but you’ll be able to get back to your daily routine in no time.
