What is IPL?

If you are concerned about the appearance of dark spots, sun damage, and/or skin discoloration in your complexion, you could be a great candidate for intense pulsed light (IPL) therapy at Limitless Me Wellness. An IPL photofacial is a rejuvenating treatment for hyperpigmentation concerns on the neck and face. Board-certified family physician Dr. Kia Mitchell sends intense pulses of light to stimulate the natural regeneration process and boost collagen production. As the added nutrients take effect, you should begin to see a healthier complexion, a more even tone, and fewer spots. While IPL is not an invasive treatment option, it can be very effective and can produce impressive results for your skin. Our Jacksonville, FL team uses the Alma Harmony XL PRO laser to perform IPL therapy and can offer you a skin assessment to determine if this service can help renew your complexion.

What Are the Benefits of IPL Photofacials?

Am I A Candidate For An IPL Photofacial?

An IPL photofacial reaches the deeper layers of your skin to improve many complexion blemishes (especially sun spots, brown lesions, and skin discoloration) with little or no downtime. Ideal candidates for IPL treatments at Limitless Me Wellness may have a combination of problems with their skin, such as sun damage, rosacea, hyperpigmentation (brown spots), rough texture, large pores, redness, melasma, age and sun spots, or dilated capillaries. Dr. Mitchell will assess your complexion to determine if you are a candidate for a photofacial during your private consultation.

What Can I Expect After My IPL Photofacial?

There is no downtime needed with a photofacial treatment. You will leave our office with your complexion a little swollen and pink. This will go away naturally in about a day — it may be masked with cosmetics if you want. Limitless Me Wellness suggests you keep an ointment on the treated skin to minimize irritation and promote healing. It also helps to take an anti-inflammatory medication to help ease swelling. Over the course of several days, the irregularities that rested under the skin will rise to the surface skin layers and then begin to flake off. It is very important to keep your skin protected with sunscreen at all times after an IPL photofacial and not pick at your skin while it heals. While you should have some visible results after the first treatment, your skin will attain ideal results with several photofacial sessions. Dr. Mitchell recommends approximately 3 – 6 treatments scheduled every four weeks at Limitless Me Wellness.

Frequently Asked Questions

How much does IPL cost?
Your complexion issues are unique, which means the cost of IPL treatments will be dependent on your personal concerns. Limitless Me Wellness commonly offers specials on treatments, like IPL therapy, from time to time, and we accept several types of convenient payment options. During your initial visit, we can help estimate your treatment pricing and discuss how many sessions are needed to help you reach your goals.

How quick are the results from IPL?
Improvements can usually be experienced following one treatment with Harmony XL PRO technology, but optimal results typically develop a month after your last treatment. It’s normal for you to get varying results after each session. You will most likely have an incremental improvement in redness, blotchiness, sun spots, and age spots as time goes on.

What are the possible side effects of IPL?
Most men and women have minor side effects, such as temporary swelling, redness, blisters, crusting, or bruising. These symptoms should fade within a day or two after the procedure. Your skin will be extra sensitive to the sun, and excessive sun exposure will negatively affect the results of the procedure. Whenever you go outside, you should always wear sunscreen to help avoid skin problems, including redness and sun spots.

Do I need to prep for IPL?
To prepare for IPL therapy, Jacksonville, FL patients are usually asked to skip sun exposure and self-tanners for about 2 – 4 weeks prior to their appointment. You may be asked to stop using certain medications and topical creams, like Retin-A, a few days before each treatment, and we may recommend that you avoid taking aspirin, ibuprofen, or other blood thinners 5 – 7 days before the treatment to decrease your risk of bruising. You also need to use sun protection (like a hat and sunscreen).

Why should I get multiple IPL sessions?
We recommend getting a series of IPL treatments to produce gradual, natural-looking enhancements in your skin. Each treatment will help to reduce surface irregularities and spots. Several sessions also produce longer-lasting aesthetic results.
