Many people experience complexion concerns resulting from various factors such as age, sun exposure, and acne breakouts. These issues can manifest in the form of age spots, sun spots, rosacea, or uneven skin tones, which may affect the overall clarity and smoothness of the skin.
IPL Photofacial treatments target and minimize these skin imperfections, enhancing your skin’s natural beauty. At Rejuvené MD in El Paso, TX, we specialize in this non-invasive IPL treatment, offering an effective solution for skin rejuvenation.
What Is an IPL Photofacial?
An IPL Photofacial is a cutting-edge treatment for the skin that uses intense pulsed light (IPL) technology to address various skin imperfections. This non-surgical treatment is designed to improve the appearance of sun-damaged skin, reduce redness from rosacea, and diminish the visibility of age spots and other pigment irregularities.
How Do IPL Photofacials Work?
IPL Photofacials emit multiple wavelengths of light onto the skin, which is absorbed by the pigmentation and blood vessels within the targeted area. The light energy is then converted to heat, disrupting the undesirable pigmentation or blood vessels and stimulating the body’s natural healing process. IPL treatments can lead to clearer, rejuvenated skin with minimal downtime.
What Can IPL Photofacials Treat?
Hyperpigmentation, which often appears as age spots or dark patches on the skin, can be effectively addressed with our age spot treatment. The IPL Photofacial specifically targets these areas of darker pigment, reducing their appearance and promoting a more even skin tone.
IPL for Rosacea
Rosacea, characterized by persistent redness and visible blood vessels, can be challenging to manage. Fortunately, our IPL Photofacial treatment provides a promising solution. This non-invasive IPL for rosacea treatment helps to minimize redness and the visibility of blood vessels.
IPL for Sun Damage
Over time, prolonged exposure to the sun can cause sun spots and other signs of damage to appear on the skin. Our sun spot treatment employs IPL for sun damage to target these areas, breaking down the pigment and helping to restore your skin to a healthier state.
Enlarged pores can trap dirt and oils, leading to breakouts and a dull complexion, and they can detract from your skin’s appearance. IPL treatment not only helps to minimize the appearance of these pores but also promotes overall IPL skin rejuvenation, leaving your skin looking smoother and more radiant.
Fine Lines and Wrinkles
With age, fine lines and wrinkles inevitably form. IPL Photofacials are designed to stimulate collagen production, reducing the appearance of these age-related skin changes and contributing to a smoother, more youthful complexion.

Before, During, and After Your IPL Treatment
Before your treatment, avoid sun exposure, tanning beds, and any skincare products containing retinol or glycolic acid for at least two weeks. On the day of your treatment, arrive with clean, makeup-free skin.
During your IPL skin rejuvenation session, we will start by applying a cooling gel to the treatment area. You’ll wear protective eyewear, and then we’ll gently move the M22™ Lumenis® handpiece across your skin. The treatment is usually well-tolerated, with patients often likening the sensation to a rubber band snapping against the skin.
Following your treatment, you might notice some redness or swelling, similar to a mild sunburn. These effects typically subside within a few hours to a couple of days. Keep your skin protected from the sun, moisturize well, and avoid hot baths or showers for the first 48 hours. Over the following weeks, you’ll begin to see the full effects of the treatment as your skin’s tone and texture improve.
FAQs About IPL Photofacials
How Long Does an IPL Photofacial Session Take?
An IPL treatment session typically lasts between 30 and 60 minutes, depending on the size and condition of the area being treated. Usually, treatments can often be done over a lunch break, or you can squeeze it into another similar block of time.
How Many IPL Photofacial Treatments Will I Need?
The number of IPL Photofacial treatments we will recommend varies with each individual and the skin concern being addressed. On average, patients may require three to six sessions, spaced about a month apart, for optimal results.
Can IPL Photofacials Be Used on All Skin Types?
While IPL Photofacials can be used on a variety of skin types, it’s always best to consult with us to determine if this treatment is suitable for your specific skin type.
How Long Do the Results of an IPL Photofacial Last?
The longevity of the results varies, but with proper skin care and protection, the improved skin appearance from an age spot treatment or other IPL treatments can last for a year or more. Regular touch-up treatments can help maintain the effects.
