How IPL Technology Revitalizes Facial Skin

A Photofacial utilizes selective wavelengths of high-intensity light energy, delivered in precise pulsating beams, to improve various skin concerns on the face. 

Here is an overview of how it works:

The IPL machine generates a broad spectrum of light filtered to customized wavelengths. These filters allow isolation of specific wavelength ranges ideal for targeting brown and red skin irregularities.

The selected light is emitted in brief, controlled pulses applied to the skin’s surface. Photofacial technology provides a safe, non-invasive way to refresh facial skin tone and texture without incisions or ablation.

What Does the Photofacial Process Involve?

The Photofacial technicians at Bellava MedAesthetics follow these key steps during each personalized treatment session:

  • Cleansing and toning the facial skin to remove oils, makeup, and dead skin cells
  • Applying a thin gel layer to allow smooth gliding of the IPL handpiece and facilitate energy transfer
  • Carefully placing protective eye shields to prevent any exposure to bright light
  • Testing pulses on a small area to assess heat sensation and adjust settings accordingly
  • Methodically delivering light pulses over the full face in multiple passes based on the customized plan
  • Utilizing consistent contact cooling before, during and after each pulse to maximize comfort
  • Evaluating the skin’s response after each pass and making any necessary parameter adjustments
  • Session length averages 30-60 minutes based on extent of treatment needed
  • Reviewing at-home care instructions and scheduling follow-up appointments as needed

What Should Patients Expect During Recovery?

The recovery time after Photofacials is very minimal for most patients:

How Can Photofacials Address Pigmentation and Sun Damage?

One of the most powerful capabilities of Photofacials is the ability to reduce sun spots, age spots, freckles, and other forms of hyperpigmentation or redness. The technicians at Bellava MedAesthetics customize the IPL machine settings for each patient’s particular skin issues:

Longer wavelengths are selected to target melanin absorption by pigmented lesions. The focused light breaks up the melanin clusters so the darkened skin cells naturally shed and fade away within 1-2 weeks. 

For diffused redness, rosacea, or blood vessels, shorter wavelengths are chosen which are preferentially absorbed by hemoglobin to eliminate the red discoloration.

Careful adjustments of the IPL pulse duration, energy level, and cooling parameters allows for controlled dermal heating that selectively damages the irregular pigment or red blood cells. 

This reduces sun or age-related spots, freckles, patches of redness, cherry angiomas, and other signs of photodamage.

Bellava MedAesthetics’ Personalized Approach to Photofacial

Our skilled practitioners at Bellava MedAesthetics take a very personalized approach when recommending Photofacial treatment plans. We start with an in-depth consultation analyzing the patient’s skin type, areas of concern, sensitivity, and goals.

Taking the patient’s lifestyle and schedule into account, they suggest an optimal number of sessions and interval between treatments to achieve improvements progressively without over-treating the skin. 

We select the ideal intense pulsed light filters and parameters to target the specific pigmentation issues or sun damage present. The number of passes and use of cooling are also customized based on the individual’s needs.

Bellava’s staff draws from their extensive background performing thousands of Photofacials when advising patients on what to expect regarding the sensations, recovery, and duration needed to see their desired outcome. 

We carefully set expectations for realistic, gradual improvements. Ongoing maintenance sessions are incorporated into plans to sustain results long-term.
