THE FACTS: Intense pulsed light (IPL) therapy, aka photofacial, is a way to improve the color and texture of your skin without surgery. It can undo some of the visible damage caused by sun exposure -- called photoaging. You may notice it mostly on your face, neck, hands, or chest.

IPL uses light energy to target a certain color in your skin. When the skin is heated, your body gets rid of the unwanted cells, and that gets rid of the thing you’re being treated for. Unlike lasers, an IPL device sends out more than one wavelength of pulsating light. It can treat a range of skin conditions at the same time. After IPL, you may look younger because your skin tone is more even. And since the light doesn’t hurt other tissue, you can get better quickly.

If you have skin burns, acne scars, or age spots, photo facials can help. This is a laser rejuvenation therapy that stimulates collagen production and treats skin discoloration.

  • Age spots

  • Sun damage (sun spots)

  • Birthmarks

  • Broken capillaries

  • Increased redness. Photo facials make your skin look better, but the treatment can do contrary to some patients.

  • Pigmentation changes. Decreased pigmentation can be evidenced, especially if your skin has a tan.

  • Skin blisters and swelling. Face swelling is normal, particularly in severely sun-damaged skin.

  • Infections. The therapy can cause skin infections resulting in wounds.


  • Redness – This is fairly common. It’s a sign of irritation and generally goes away after a few hours.

  • Brown spots – If you underwent the procedure to treat dark spots and are suddenly faced with darker ones, don’t fret. This is normal. The dark spots may last for up to a week but will then fade.

  • Crusting – Some of the dark spots you’ve treated will grow hard and begin to flake. This is normal and temporary.

  • Bruising – This side effect is fairly uncommon and mild when it does occur.


For starters, with IPL photofacials you need to be tan-free. Tans can prevent the machine from accurately detecting the specific blemishes that you want addressed, and put you at greater risk of being burned. You also need to avoid aspirin, ibuprofen, anticoagulants, alcohol, and anything else that thins the blood. Additionally, be sure to notify your doctor if you’re taking antibiotics or any supplements.



Avoid Sunbathing: Steer clear of prolonged sun exposure, especially in the first few days post-treatment.

Skip Active Skincare: Refrain from using products containing retinol, AHAs, or BHAs for a few days.

Avoid Hot Showers: Skip hot showers and baths for the first 24–48 hours to minimize skin irritation.
