At Goldcoast Medspa we use state-of-the-art technology and treatments to provide our patients with the very best solutions to improve their appearance and boost their self-confidence.

One of our most popular rejuvenation treatments is the IPL photofacial. Read on to learn all about it and its main benefits.

What Is an IPL Photofacial?

Modern technology has paved the way for a wide array of revolutionary skin treatments. Among them is the IPL photofacial, also known as an Intense Pulsed Light therapy.

IPL photofacials help treat pigment issues and other conditions like age spots or brown spots using laser light energy.

How Does the IPL Photofacial Procedure Work?

The procedure is done using laser light which is beamed on the affected skin from a handheld IPL device. It works on a molecular level to even the skin tone and eliminate unwanted cells.

To protect their eyes from the powerful light, the patient will have to wear dark glasses.

The IPL photofacial procedure is non-invasive and patients experience no pain during the treatment. At Goldcoast Medspa, we provide our patients with all the required details before and after the IPL photofacial treatment, as well as details on what should be avoided following the procedure.

What Does an IPL Photofacial Do?

The IPL photofacial treatment helps minimize and treat skin issues like:

  • fine wrinkles
  • redness
  • dark circles around the eyes
  • age spots or brown spots
  • sun damage on the skin
  • acne scars
  • Aging skin, coarse skin texture, and spider veins can also be improved with this treatment, helping people get clear and radiant skin.

Area of Treatment and Duration

The area and duration of the IPL photofacial treatment will depend on each person’s requirements.

Multiple IPL photofacial sessions may be required to achieve the best results depending on the severity of the patient’s issues, which are usually scheduled three weeks apart. A session will typically take about 20-30 minutes.
