Introduction to IPL PhotoFacial

Unfortunately, as we age, the skin gradually begins to lose its youthful attributes as sun damage, stress and the natural process of aging occur. Freckles, sun spots, and other blemishes begin to crop up on our faces with each passing year, causing uneven pigmentation and giving the skin an undesirable, blotchy appearance. Now, think of the skin that you had in your younger years when your face was smooth, firm, and evenly toned. When we are young, our skin functions optimally. It is plump and well-hydrated, giving us a radiant look of health and vitality.

At Aesthetica Med Spa in Austin, TX, IPL PhotoFacials can help repair skin imperfections caused by sun damage, rosacea, and brown spots on the face, hands, and body. This revolutionary treatment has also been found to reduce the appearance of mild acne scars, dark circles around the eyes, and fine lines around the eyes and mouth.

What is IPL PhotoFacial?

PhotoFacial is a non-ablative and non-invasive dermatology procedure that rejuvenates your skin using the remarkable new technology of Intense Pulsed Light (IPL). This treatment will decrease (sometimes permanently) freckles and brown spots, discolorations, redness, ruddiness, rosacea, fine lines, and wrinkles, reduce pore size, help uneven skin tone, treat dark circles under the eyes (most effective treatment for this difficult condition), help with broken capillaries, red spots, and a red neck and chest area. The results you get from this procedure are very dependent on the skill and experience of the practitioner.

Those who live in cities with a high UV index like Austin are at an even greater risk for premature skin aging, especially if proper precautions aren’t taken to protect the skin from damaging UV rays. Unfortunately, by the time most of us start thinking about skin aging and instituting a proper skincare regime, it’s too late. A large majority of the sun damage our skin endures occurs before the age of 18. Remember all those childhood sunburns and peeling shoulders? Your skin certainly does. The good news is that our knowledge on how to not only protect skin from further damage but to begin reversing it has increased tremendously over recent years. Once individuals have implemented a preventative skincare regimen that makes use of sunscreen and topical antioxidants, they may then want to focus on correcting existing problems like hyper-pigmentation, uneven tone, rough skin texture, fine lines and wrinkles, and so on.

One such treatment that we use to remedy these issues is an advanced technology known as IPL (Intense Pulse Light). Our Austin IPL treatments use high-intensity pulses of light to enhance the tone and texture of sun-damaged or blemished skin. Unlike lasers that deliver only one wavelength, IPL systems deliver multiple wavelengths, allowing them to target several conditions with each treatment.

Our Austin IPL laser treatments can be used to address a range of aging-related issues including the following:

  • Brown spots
  • Age spots
  • Broken capillaries
  • Rosacea
  • Flushing
  • Sun damage
  • Redness
  • Mild skin texture issues
  • Sun-induced freckles
  • Spider veins
  • Ruddy skin
  • Fine lines and larger pores
  • Dark circles around the eyes
  • Acne scarring

What are the Benefits of IPL PhotoFacial?

In contrast to other alternative skin rejuvenation techniques like dermabrasion and laser skin resurfacing, our IPL treatments are considered to be non-ablative, meaning that the top layer of skin is not damaged. Instead, IPL treatments use a handpiece to gently glide over the skin emitting soft pulses of light. Thanks to its non-invasive nature, our Austin IPL PhotoFacial patients have been able to enjoy these benefits:

What’s the First Step?

If you are interested in an IPL PhotoFacial in Austin, TX, the first step is to contact Aesthetica MedSpa and schedule a consultation. During this appointment, you will be able to meet with a member of our aesthetic team and discuss your goals for the treatment. They will evaluate your skin and ask you questions regarding your medical history. It is very important to maintain an open and honest communication when talking about your history as this helps us make the best and safest decisions for your treatment. Once all of this information has been collected, your treatment plan will be created and if you agree with it, our Patient Coordinator will be able to help you schedule your first session.

What to Expect on the Day of IPL PhotoFacial

The IPL PhotoFacial tool is gently pressed to the skin, emitting gentle pulses of light. During treatments, these light pulses penetrate the tissue and are absorbed by either the blood (when treating vascular lesions) or the melanin (when targeting pigmented lesions) and subsequently damaging them. Your body will then begin to naturally remove these affected tissues, stimulating new collagen and connective tissues. These new tissues will help to better support the upper skin layer, resulting in smoother, more toned skin.

Treatments will last around 20 minutes, depending on the size of the treatment area.

IPL PhotoFacial Recovery

There is little to no recuperation time – however, an IPL PhotoFacial will leave your skin red, and your freckles and sun spots will darken tremendously until they slough off 5-6 days later. You will notice a gradual, natural-looking improvement in your skin over time. Our IPL treatments are a safe solution that can be tailored to your skin type and condition.

How Much Does IPL PhotoFacial Cost in Austin?

The cost of IPL PhotoFacial in Austin will vary depending on a few factors, including the number of treatments you need and the surface area being treated. When you come in for your consultation, you will have a treatment plan created for you, and our Patient Coordinator will be able to use that information to give you a price breakdown.
