IPL Photofacial is a cosmetic procedure designed to produce younger and healthier looking skin. A variety of skin conditions, such as red complexion, rosacea, fine lines, wrinkles, large pores, freckles and pigmented spots can be treated using intense pulsed light (IPL) therapy.
These skin conditions are often caused by aging, sun exposure, genetic predisposition, and other factors.
Pigmented spots and areas of redness selectively absorb the intense pulsed light delivered by our E-light platform, resulting in cosmetic improvement without peeling or burning. The IPL Photofacial process will leave the skin with a clear, glowing, youthful appearance – making this one of our most popular procedures.
FAQ – IPL Photofacial
What Is IPL Photofacial/Fotofacial?
A photofacial, or “fotofacial,” is a 30-minute procedure in which intense pulses of light are used to penetrate deep into the skin. The IPL photofacial then causes collagen and blood vessels below the epidermis to constrict, reducing redness and age lines. The procedure involves only minimal discomfort, and the redness and swelling that sometimes occur after treatment disappear shortly. Most benefits of a photofacial/fotofacial occur gradually in the weeks following treatment.
Non-Invasive. No Downtime. Immediate Results.
Do you think that the reflection you see in the mirror each morning matches the way you feel? Many patients wish that there was a safe, easy and quick way to get rid of their red complexion, fine wrinkles, irregular pigmentation and large pores. Photofacials are one of our most exciting anti-aging services. Photofacials of the face and body produce even-toned skin that looks more youthful.
A photofacial can erase skin damage and treat a variety of skin conditions, such as:
- Broken capillaries
- Sun and smoke damage
- Mild acne scars
- Enlarged pores
- Dull complexion
- Uneven pigmentation
- Pigmented freckles and age spots
- Red flushing skin
- Rosacea and redness
- Liver spots
- Fine lines and wrinkles
Using advanced non-laser Intense Pulse Light technology, Amerejuve Med Spa medical professionals deliver precise amounts of light energy through the skin’s surface to stimulate the production of collagen. As the new collagen forms, it softens the appearance of aging skin. Fine lines and wrinkles are decreased and the redness associated with rosacea and redness can be dramatically reduced. Photofacial treatments restore a more youthful appearance and improve skin texture without any downtime – allowing you to return to work or leisure activities immediately.

Who is an ideal candidate for the IPL Photofacial procedure?
An IPL photofacial can be used to treat redness caused by acne, rosacea, hyperpigmentation, and facial veins as well as the fine lines and wrinkles caused by aging or sun damage. And if your skin has been discolored as a result of smoking, alcohol use, or hormonal changes, an IPL photofacial/fotofacial can smooth and refine your complexion. Please call us to schedule your free consultation to evaluate your eligibility for this popular procedure.
Is there any down time associated with IPL photofacial procedure?
An IPL photofacial involves relatively little discomfort and no downtime. Unlike many laser techniques, the procedure is non-ablative, meaning no skin is removed during treatment. This contributes to the easy recovery and low risk associated with the IPL photofacial/fotofacial while allowing patients to return to their everyday routine immediately. After treatment, the skin may look a little flushed. The flushed look will soon fade away, leaving the skin looking younger and rejuvenated.

How does IPL™ Photorejuvenation work?
During IPL™ photorejuvenation treatment, high energy light waves are used to reduce or eliminate many common effects of aging, including facial wrinkles and skin discolorations. IPL™ light also encourages the production of collagen, a natural protein that fills in wrinkles, making the skin smooth and supple. With each treatment, the results of IPL™ photorejuvenation become more pronounced. Five full-face IPL™ photofacial/fotofacial sessions spaced three weeks apart are normally required for optimal results.
How often do I need IPL Photofacial treatment?
For optimal results, Amerejuve recommends 1 session every month for 5 months with touchups as needed (generally about every 6 months).
How long does IPL Photofacial last?
The longevity of IPL™ photorejuvenation results will largely depend on you; results last as long as you maintain proper skin care.
