IPL Photofacials | Bryn Mawr, PAIf you’ve tried everything to help your skin recover from sun damage, acne, or other tough issues, you could be tired of spending money and seeing no results. Though many products and treatments claim to banish scars and hyperpigmentation, the truth is that everyone’s skin is different and reacts differently to products and ingredients.

Some people may benefit from small changes in their routines, while others have skin that doesn’t change so quickly. Do you feel stuck without results or improvement?

If you’ve tried everything, then it’s time to learn about IPL photofacials. Keep reading to learn more about this amazing treatment.

What is IPL?

IPL stands for Intense Pulsed Light, and can also be called broadband light (BBL), photorejuvenation, or photofacial. Though it is similar, IPL is not technically a laser. Instead, IPL machines are able to vary the wavelengths of light they use, so they can treat a list of issues that your skin may have (as opposed to laser treatments, which often can only be tailored to specific skin issues). For example, IPL can be used to treat scars, dark marks, rosacea, and can even help remove unwanted hair.

Who is a good candidate?

Those who suffer from the following are likely good candidates for IPL treatments.

  • Spider Veins
  • Rosacea (enlarged facial blood vessels)
  • Pigment Imperfections
  • Brown and Red Spots
  • Freckles
  • Redness
  • Sun Damage

How long will results last?

IPL treatments are not like other treatments where you have amazing results that slowly fade away. In fact, the best results with IPL treatments come after a few months. So, if you are looking for a quick pick-me-up for a party or other event, other treatments may be better.

But, if you’re looking for results that will last and improve your skin, IPL is for you. We recommend patients receive between one and three treatments, and the best results usually come a few months after your last treatment. IPL treatments are amazing, because the results actually improve over time, and you can expect very good results if you take care of your skin. Wear sunscreen every day to prevent premature aging and sun damage.
