What is a IPL Photo-facial?

You’ve probably heard that IPL photofacials work wonders for reducing the signs of aging, blemishes and damage to your face’s skin. And the rumours are all true! During each non-invasive facial, intense pulsed light (IPL) penetrates into the skin, boosting collagen levels and banishing imperfections, while constricting blood vessels to reduce redness and signs of age. 

If you’re on the fence about trying a photo-facial, Beauty Mechanics, your trusted skin expert clinic, knows six great reasons why this treatment could benefit you. Let’s chat about it.

“Many women are often concerned that shaving their “Peach Fuzz” will make it grow back heavier and darker, but that’s actually not the case. Superficial vellus hair (Peach Fuzz) will grow back at the same rate & same texture as it was before the treatment.”

6 Reasons to Get an IPL Photo-facial


Reduce signs of aging

IPL photo-facials work to minimize classic signs of aging, such as wrinkles and fine lines. As the light penetrates your skin, it naturally stimulates the productions of collagen, which improves the skin’s elasticity and tightness. This increase in collagen softens your wrinkles and fine lines, and the skin itself appears smoother. Collagen production decreases as you age, starting as early as 25 years old. So, boosting your levels of collagen with a photo-facial is also thought to slow down future signs of aging.

Minimize skin redness, acne marks and broken blood vessels

After each photo-facial, you’ll notice a tremendous difference in your skin’s appearance and texture. That’s because IPL technology rejuvenates the skin by reducing redness (caused by rosacea and other ailments), visible blood vessels, scarring and sun damage. If you suffer from acne marks, IPL photo-facials can also help. Each session removes post-acne marks, while lowering inflammation and tightening the pores to reduce the appearance of blemishes.

Reverse sun damage and ages spots for even glowing skin

Wavelengths target the melanin in the pigment and the affected target is destroyed. After each treatment, you will notice a significant improvement in the complexion and clarity of the skin and a reduction of discoloration.


IPL photo-facials are not just for your face

When clients see the amazing- on their face, they often opt to have the treatments done on their neck, chest, shoulders and hands, as well. Like the face, these areas of the body are prone to age spots, sun damage, freckles, wrinkles and hyperpigmentation, which our treatments strive to eliminate.


Minimal discomfort

Treatments are adjusted so that patients experience no pain at all during IPL photo-facials. The parameters are very safe. The flash from the light is quite bright but eyes are protected with safety googles.


IPL photo-facials fast and easy!

A standard facial often lasts an hour or longer. With IPL photo-facials, the entire treatment can be completed in just 15 to 30 minutes! There’s minimum recovery time after the procedure, so you can schedule your appointment during your lunch break and return to work afterwards.
