Skin conditions and signs of aging can be frustrating and emotionally draining. The onset of wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, and sun damage can make your skin look old and dull. But there’s good news — there are non-invasive treatments that can improve your skin’s overall tone and texture without any downtime, and one of these is IPL photofacial!
Zap Away Your Skin Concerns
IPL (intense pulsed light) photofacial is a treatment that uses pulses of light to target and improves the appearance of skin concerns. It can improve various concerns, including sun damage, fine lines and wrinkles, age spots, and uneven skin tone. One of the great things about Medford IPL photofacial is that it is a non-invasive treatment, so there is no downtime required. You can simply walk out of the clinic and resume your daily activities!

How IPL Photofacial Works
IPL photofacial works by emitting pulses of light that penetrate the skin and are absorbed by specific target cells. This absorption of light energy causes the target cells to be heated and destroyed. As the treated cells are replaced by new, healthy cells, the appearance of the skin is improved. Different wavelengths of light energy can penetrate different pigments and layers of your skin, so the treatment can be personalized according to your needs.
Benefits of IPL Photofacial:
- Non-invasive treatment
- No incisions, chemicals, or injections
- Minimal discomfort during the treatment
- No harsh side effects or complications
- Improves overall skin tone and complexion
- Personalized according to your skin type
- No post-treatment downtime
IPL Photofacial FAQs
What happens during the IPL photofacial treatment?
Medford IPL photofacial is a fairly simple treatment. During your treatment, the medical provider offers protective eyeglasses and cleanses your facial skin. After adjusting the IPL device according to your skin type, the medical provider runs the handheld device over the treatment areas to deliver light energy. The treatment concludes within 30 minutes.
What are the side effects of IPL photofacial?
You may experience some redness and swelling immediately after IPL photofacial, but this usually subsides within a few hours.
Is there any downtime after IPL photofacial?
IPL photofacial doesn’t involve any downtime. You may resume your daily activities immediately, but you should avoid high-intensity activities, workouts, and direct sunlight for a few days. Your skin will be slightly red and photosensitive for a few days, so you must wear sunscreen.
When will I see the results of IPL photofacial?
The results of IPL photofacial will appear gradually over several weeks. After a few days, some of the targeted pigmented cells will flake off your skin, revealing smoother skin underneath. But the final results appear several weeks after your final session.
How many IPL photofacial sessions do I need?
Medford IPL photofacial treatments are typically done in a series of three to six sessions, spaced four to six weeks apart. Most people see significant improvement after three to four sessions.
