Intense-Pulsed Light Facial Rejuvenation
An IPL photofacial is a non-invasive light-based therapy used in removing sun damage from the skin. With an IPL photofacial, you can eliminate the appearance of aging or unwanted blemishes and treat yourself to a clear, healthy complexion and brighter skin. In addition to reducing blemishes and improving issues of sun damage, this process is effective in targeting skin redness, acne, and broken capillaries. You will also notice an overall improvement in skin texture, reduction of pore size, and diminished fine lines.

How Do IPL Photofacials Work?
A form of pulsed light therapy, the IPL photofacial uses an intense-pulsed light laser (essentially, an extremely bright light). Different than a laser that releases one wavelength of light, an intense-pulsed light laser releases many different, scattered wavelengths of light that penetrates the superficial layers of the skin to reach deep unwanted areas of pigmentation. These pigmentations absorb the light, and the light converts into heat, which in turn, breaks up the pigmented cells. These dead cells are then expelled by your skin as they ash off the surface, leaving your skin healthy and blemish-free.
What to Expect Before Treatment?
At DSM Aesthetics, our client-focused team will give you a specialized consultation to assess your candidacy for an IPL photofacial, as well as how you will need to prepare your skin based on your unique skin type and treatment history.
For optimal results, we ask that you prepare your skin before and after your IPL photofacial treatment. This means:
- Avoiding direct sunlight as much as possible for 2 weeks before your treatment. As long as you are not laying out, typical sun exposure is okay—we know you’re rocking that sunscreen every day!
- Avoiding some facial treatments such as waxing and some injectables
- While there is little to no downtime, it does take 3-4 weeks for your skin to fully purge, so plan time to heal accordingly. Most patients are happy using their normal makeup routines to conceal the healing process.
As your skin eliminates the sun damage through your pores, you will experience temporary discoloration as your skin purges the dead cells. This is a good thing—all you have to do is wait for your body to heal naturally!
