Before and After* IPL Photofacial*
IPL Photofacial before and after images show how dramatic the results of IPL treatments can be for the correction of redness, hyperpigmentation from sun damage, and an overall revival of the complexion’s appearance. Individual patient experiences can vary but the following before and after Photofacial images show actual patients displaying actual results after receiving treatment from a reputable provider.*
How Do IPL Photofacials Work?
Photofacials utilize the energy of IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) which is also referred to as BroadBand Light (BBL) to help renew and repair skin. During the procedure, the laser technician aims the IPL at the desired area for treatment. The pulsing light safely penetrates the epidermis with thermal energy, heating the deeper layers of the skin. This triggers various natural restorative processes in the body. There are several ways IPL Photofacials revitalize skin:
The thermal energy that heats the deeper layers of the skin triggers increased collagen production. Collagen is an imperative structural protein for our skin. It helps maintain a firm, tight, line-free complexion. The increased collagen revitalizes the patient’s complexion, diminishing the appearance of wrinkles and blemishes.¹
Reversing Brown Spots (Hyperpigmentation)
IPL Photofacials are also able to focus the thermal energy on melanin that has collected and caused hyperpigmentation. Such issues include melasma, freckles, and brown spots. During a Photofacial, the darker pigment in the melanin absorbs the IPL’s energy. This heats the melanin to the point of fracturing into smaller bits. The fractured melanin is then absorbed into the body, gradually fading in appearance over time.¹
Reducing Redness (Vascular Lesions)
During a Photofacial, the IPL can also target irregular or damaged blood vessels under the epidermis. Vascular lesions result in unsightly redness like rosacea, face veins, port wine stains. During the procedure, the hemoglobin in blood absorbs the IPL. This increases the blood vessel’s temperature, causing the vessel to clot. Clotting disrupts the vascular lesions supply of blood, resulting in the vessel being destroyed and replaced by newer, healthier tissue.²
Treating Active Acne
Scientific research shows that Photofacials can treat acne in two distinct ways:
- The IPL’s thermal energy constricts the supply of blood in the sebaceous glands, diminishing the overproduction of sebum (skin oils that can cause breakouts)
- The same light energy destroys bacteria accumulated on the epidermis that can cause acne and breakouts.³
Other Conditions IPL Photofacials Can Treat
With the use of breakthrough IPL thermal energy, Photofacials are clinically proven to treat a wide range of blemishes and skin conditions such as:
- Flushing, redness, and rosacea
- Dilated or “broken” blood vessels
- Uneven complexion
- Hyperpigmentation and melasma
- Sun damage such as brown spots or freckles
- Wrinkles and fine lines
- Enlarged pores
- Active acne

If photo-rejuvenation is a good fit for you, the specialist will assist in creating a treatment schedule customized to your skincare desires and your budget.
Results of IPL Photofacial
Many Photofacial patients start to see visible results after only a single treatment! ¹ Most patients, however, need 3-5 treatments, with a month in between each session, to reach their desired skincare goal. As with all cosmetic procedures, individual results can vary. The total number of sessions required is dependent on the skin issue being treated and the patient’s own specific needs.*
Regarding long-term results, again individual results vary. However, some patients have shown lasting results for many years following treatment.* This is also dependent on area and specific condition that is treated.
A Customized Treatment Schedule for the Best Photofacial Results
A personalized treatment plan will be the best way to get excellent Photofacial results. Customized light wavelengths can be tweaked to treat specific scarring and acne, vascular lesions and pigment issues, letting more than one condition be treated in a single pass of the applicator, decreasing overall treatment time.
The LimeLight from Cutera offers non-surgical IPL treatment that can be customized for addressing different skin colors and aging issues, resulting in amazing skin renewal with minimal pain.
Side Effects of IPL Photofacial
The IPL Photofacial is FDA-approved as a non-surgical skincare treatment clinically proven effective and safe. Side effects of IPL Photofacials are not common and the procedure generally results in no downtime. However, patients can experience minor redness or swelling of the treatment area. This generally fades away within a few hours post-treatment.* Patients are permitted to use makeup immediately following the Photofacial. Veins may appear slightly redder for 2-3 days post-treatment and freckles and age spots may be a bit darker for about 7 days post-treatment.
