Here’s How Many IPL Photofacial Treatments You’ll Need For Glowing Skin

Updated: October 7, 2022

How IPL Photofacial Treatments Can Give You Glowing Skin

If you’re looking for a way to achieve clear, glowing skin, you may want to consider IPL photofacial treatments. IPL, or intense pulsed light therapy, uses high-intensity light to improve the appearance of skin. IPL photofacials can treat a variety of skin concerns, including sun damage, fine lines and wrinkles, dark spots, and redness.

How IPL Photofacials Work

IPL photofacials work by targeting the lower layers of skin with short pulses of light energy. This helps to stimulate the production of collagen and elastin, which leads to smoother, more youthful-looking skin. It also helps to break up pigment cells that cause dark spots and uneven skin tone.

IPL photofacials are usually performed in a series of 4-6 treatments spaced 4-6 weeks apart. Most people see a noticeable improvement in their skin after just 2-3 treatments. After your initial treatment series is complete, you may want to have 1-2 maintenance treatments per year to keep your skin looking its best.

Benefits of IPL Photofacials

In addition to giving you glowing, healthy-looking skin, IPL photofacials offer a number of other benefits. They are safe for all skin types and can be used on the face, neck, chest, and hands. They require no downtime, so you can immediately resume your normal activities after treatment. And because they use gentle light energy instead of lasers or chemicals, they are much less likely to cause side effects like redness or irritation.


If you’re looking for a safe and effective way to achieve clear, glowing skin, IPL photofacial treatments may be right for you. With just a few short treatments spaced 4-6 weeks apart, most people see a significant improvement in their skin’s texture and tone. To maintain your results, you may only need 1-2 treatments per year after your initial treatment series is complete.
