About IPL Photofacial

As you go through life, your skin is a protective barrier for your internal organs. Your skin withstands considerable stress and damage from sun exposure, environmental pollutants, acne breakouts, injuries, and more. But thanks to modern aesthetic medicine, we can harness the power of light to heal your skin from within and reverse months or years of skin damage. Phoenix Skin and Laser uses cutting-edge IPL photofacial in Portland devices to perform a personalized photo-rejuvenation, helping you achieve smooth, even-textured, youthful skin.

What is IPL Photofacial?

IPL photofacial is a non-invasive skin rejuvenation technique that harnesses the power of high-intensity broad-spectrum light to revitalize your complexion. We use a medical-grade IPL device that releases controlled wavelengths of light pulses that penetrate your skin’s surface and improve your overall complexion. Different wavelengths target different skin concerns, such as fine lines and wrinkles, collagen production, textural irregularities, pigmentation problems, and vascular lesions, so the treatment is highly personalized. IPL photofacials conclude within 30 minutes and don’t involve any downtime.

  • Facial scars
  • Acne scars

How Does IPL Photofacial Work?

IPL photofacial in Portland works by delivering highly calibrated wavelengths of light energy into targeted skin layers. Each wavelength of light energy addresses different skin concerns. Some wavelengths of light energy dissipate and break down unwanted pigments on your skin, thereby reducing pigmented lesions. Some wavelengths of light are absorbed by the deep dermis, where they stimulate collagen production to make your skin look smoother and tighter. And some wavelengths of light kill acne-causing bacteria, minimizing the risk of acne breakouts.

Your IPL Photofacial Experience

IPL photofacial is an extremely personalized treatment, so it starts with a comprehensive consultation. Our skincare specialists examine your skin type, discuss your goals, and perform a comprehensive skin analysis to identify your skin conditions and concerns. During the IPL photofacial in Portland treatment, you will have to wear protective glasses, following which the IPL device will be moved over your skin to deliver highly-calibrated wavelengths of light energy. You might feel the sensation of a hot rubber snapping against your skin, but the discomfort is mild.

What Happens After IPL Photofacial?

You may experience mild redness, swelling, and discomfort 48 hours after the treatment. The side effects are similar to a mild sunburn. You should avoid direct sunlight and spa treatments for a few days after an IPL photofacial and avoid strenuous workouts. However, you can resume your daily activities and work immediately after the treatment. There is no downtime. We will also provide a series of aftercare guidelines that you should follow to ensure optimal recovery and results.

How Many Treatments Will I Need?

Most patients need 3 to 5 IPL photofacial treatments spaced 3 to 4 weeks apart for optimal results. The number of sessions will depend on the severity of your conditions. The results will gradually improve over several weeks and treatments.
