Harness the Power of Light

An IPL Photofacial uses the power of intense pulsed light (IPL) to improve the appearance of your skin. During the procedure, a device is used to deliver pulses of light to the treatment area. This light is absorbed by the unwanted pigmentation in the skin, targeting unwanted darker spots, redness, and other imperfections and stimulating collagen production. This results in a more even skin tone, a reduction in fine lines and wrinkles, and an overall improvement in the skin's texture and appearance.

Is IPL Photofacial Right for Me?

While IPL Photofacial is a popular, relatively simple procedure, it’s important to determine if it’s the right treatment for your skin with a consultation at Concierge Aesthetics & Plastic Surgery. Typically, clients who get the most out of the procedure are:

  • Individuals with sun damage or age spots
  • People with rosacea or other types of redness in the skin
  • Those with uneven skin texture or tone
  • Patients who would like to improve the overall appearance of their skin

Your Consultation at Concierge Aesthetics & Plastic Surgery

We have five locations for patients in the Chicago area to choose from and also offer virtual consultations for your convenience. Our team is here to answer any questions or concerns you may have about the procedure, and we're dedicated to ensuring that you feel comfortable and confident throughout the process.

During your private consultation, our experienced aesthetic specialists will evaluate your skin and discuss your goals for the procedure.  We may also take photographs of your skin to use as a reference during the procedure. We take the time to provide you with all the information you need, including what to expect during the recovery period.

The Day of Your IPL Photofacial

The IPL Photofacial procedure typically takes between 30 minutes and one hour to complete, depending on the size and number of areas being treated. During the procedure, a device delivers pulses of light to the treatment area. This light is absorbed by the skin, targeting pigmented areas and stimulating collagen production.

Most patients describe the procedure as relatively painless, with only mild discomfort. Some redness and swelling may occur in the treatment area, but this typically subsides within a few hours to a day.

IPL Photofacial Aftercare

Most patients can return to their normal activities immediately after the procedure. Some redness and swelling may occur in the treatment area, but this typically subsides within a few hours to a day. Patients may also experience some mild discomfort, such as a feeling of heat or a slight stinging sensation, but this can usually be managed with over-the-counter pain medication.

It is important to avoid direct sunlight and wear sunscreen for several weeks after the procedure to protect your skin. Patients should also avoid using certain skincare products, such as retinoids and acids, for several days after the procedure to allow the skin to heal properly.

Results after an IPL Photofacial

Following your IPL Photofacial procedure, you can expect to see a significant improvement in the appearance of your skin. Patients typically notice beneficial changes in their skin within the first few days after treatment, with continued improvement over the following weeks and months as the skin's natural healing process takes effect.
