IPL Q&A

How does IPL work?

Intense pulsed light (IPL) is a revolutionary noninvasive aesthetic treatment, also a handpiece of the ICON laser, designed to stimulate your skin’s ability to heal itself. During an IPL treatment, known as a photofacial, the ICON laser delivers intense beams of light that penetrate through the surface of your skin into the deepest layers. 

This creates a therapeutic heating effect where skin cells start regenerating and turning over. Newer, healthier tissues (including skin-firming collagen) start developing from the deepest layers, forcing their way to the top. By the end of your IPL treatment package, your skin is entirely revitalized and more youthful. 

What can IPL treat?

An IPL photofacial from Thrive Med Spa & Wellness is one of the safest and most effective ways for you to resolve all of those imperfections that may make you feel uncomfortable or embarrassed. Your IPL treatment plan can treat and minimize the appearance of:

  • Rosacea
  • Age spots 
  • Brown spots
  • Facial veins 
  • Sun damage
  • Enlarged pores
  • Lines and wrinkles

IPL treatments can even smooth out your skin’s texture, leaving you with visibly looking (and feeling) skin on your face, neck, and décolleté. 

When will I have results with IPL?

Since it takes cells time to build up new tissues, you won’t see results overnight. It’s even common to notice some slight redness or swelling for a few hours after your IPL photofacial service. Shortly after any initial side effects subside, however, you should find that your skin is much smoother.

For optimal results and dramatic anti-aging benefits, the aesthetic specialists at Thrive Med Spa & Wellness recommend undergoing a series of five to eight 30-minute IPL treatments, each spaced about three weeks apart. With each IPL session you have, your skin continues to improve. 

To ensure your vibrant skin continues to last, your practitioner may recommend maintenance IPL sessions once or twice a year. This way, you’re always one step ahead of the effects of aging.
