The IPL PhotoFacial uses intense pulsed light to rejuvenate the skin and reduce sun damage and aging changes. It's most commonly used to treat facial skin, but it can also be effective for the neck and chest.

What Can Be Treated With an IPL PhotoFacial?

The IPL PhotoFacial is FDA-approved for correcting skin damage. Some of the cosmetic issues that can be addressed with this treatment include:

  • Sun damage
  • Enlarged pores
  • Skin redness
  • Acne scars
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Broken capillaries
  • Age spots

How Does the IPL PhotoFacial Work?

IPL uses a special device to deliver high-intensity light beams to the targeted skin. This gently heats the outermost layer of skin, triggering your body’s natural healing process and causing the generation of new, healthy skin cells.

The heat energy also stimulates your body to increase its production of collagen, an essential protein for the structure and health of your skin. The IPL PhotoFacial treatment leaves your skin looking significantly clearer and smoother.

How Much Does an IPL PhotoFacial Cost in Portland?

The exact cost of your IPL PhotoFacial at MD Beauty Lab will depend on the specific area(s) you’re having treated. At our clinic, we offer this skin rejuvenation treatment for the following prices:

Face, Neck, or Chest Only: $500

Face & Neck: $850

Face, Neck, & Chest: $1,200

What to Expect During Your IPL PhotoFacial Treatment

IPL PhotoFacial treatments take approximately 20 minutes to an hour, depending on the area(s) being treated.

The first step of the treatment process will be to schedule private consultation with one of our aesthetic professionals, where you’ll go over your specific goals, medical history, and any concerns you may have.

Before the IPL device is applied to your skin, you’ll likely be given protective eyewear to keep your eyes shielded from the light. You will also have a cooling gel applied to your skin. Once the procedure is finished, you’ll immediately be able to return home or back to work.

Does IPL PhotoFacial Treatment Hurt?

Typically, the IPL PhotoFacial treatment is not painful. You may feel a slight stinging sensation during the procedure, but the cooling gel should prevent any serious discomfort.

Is There Any Downtime Required After an IPL PhotoFacial?

No, there generally is no downtime needed after an IPL PhotoFacial. Most patients have no problem getting right back to their normal routines. It’s important, however, to keep your skin moisturized in the days following your treatment. You should also avoid direct sun exposure for at least a few days and wear sunscreen with an SPF above 30.

Additionally, you should avoid the following activities after your IPL PhotoFacial:

  • Swimming or spending time in hot tubs for at least two weeks
  • Strenuous physical activity for 24 to 48 hours
  • Rubbing or scratching your treated skin

Am I a Candidate for an IPL PhotoFacial?

Most people with sun damaged skin are good candidates for an IPL PhotoFacial. The treatment could be right for you if you’re dealing with issues such as rosacea, age spots, or sun damage.

IPL PhotoFacial treatments are typically not an effective option for people with darker skin tones. IPL PhotoFacial treatment is safe for the majority of people, but we do not recommend it if you are currently pregnant or nursing. If you are taking Accutane, you should not undergo this treatment until you have been off the medication for at least six months.

How many IPL PhotoFacial treatments will I need?

For some patients, one IPL PhotoFacial treatment is enough to achieve optimal results, but we typically recommend a series of two to four treatment sessions spaced four weeks apart.

How quickly will I see results?

Although you may start noticing improvements in your complexion right away, the complete results of your IPL PhotoFacial treatment will develop over one to two weeks.

How long will the results last?

As long as you take good care of your skin and practice proper sun protection, you can expect the results of your IPL PhotoFacial treatment(s) to last for several years.

What are the side effects of an IPL PhotoFacial?

The side effects of IPL PhotoFacial treatment are rare and tend to be very mild. Some patients, however, do experience symptoms such as redness, soreness, swelling, bruising, and crusting.

What can’t be treated with an IPL PhotoFacial?

While an IPL PhotoFacial can effectively treat many cosmetic skin issues, it is not ideal for conditions such as melasma, precancerous lesions, or deep-pigmented lesions.
