What is IPL?

Men and women who are bothered by the appearance of dark spots or sun damage in their complexion could be excellent candidates for intense pulsed light (IPL) treatments at Javani Med Spa. An IPL photofacial is a rejuvenating treatment for uneven skin tone on the neck and face. The laser technology sends intense pulses of light to start the natural regeneration process and increase collagen production. In time, you should notice a healthier complexion, an improved tone, and reduced hyperpigmentation. IPL is a noninvasive procedure that can be highly effective and can create great outcomes for your complexion. Stephanie Antepara's team in Windermere, FL employs Harmony XL PRO technology from Alma Lasers to perform IPL photofacials and can provide a skin analysis to determine if this service will help you reach your skin goals.

IPL faq

How much does IPL cost?
Your skin is unique so the cost of a photofacial will depend on your individual complexion and the areas you would like to treat. Javani Med Spa may offer monthly specials from time to time, and we take several types of convenient payment methods. At your aesthetic consultation, your technician can help estimate your cost and determine how many sessions are needed to optimize your results.

How quick are the results from IPL?
Some skin improvements can be seen after one treatment with Harmony XL PRO IPL technology, but the best results can be seen about one month after a full series of treatments is completed. It is common for patients to get improved results after every treatment. You will most likely experience a gradual reduction in blotchiness, redness, age spots, and sun spots as time goes on.

What are the possible side effects of IPL?
Most women and men experience some minor, temporary side effects, such as redness, swelling, blisters, crusting, or bruising. These symptoms naturally subside 2 – 3 days following your treatment. Your skin will be extra sensitive to the sun, and you should keep in mind that excessive exposure to damaging UV rays will affect the results of the procedure. Whenever you go outside, you should always wear sunscreen to protect your skin and help prevent skin damage, including sun spots and redness.

Do I need to prep for IPL?
Windermere, FL patients preparing to receive IPL therapy are typically asked to skip self-tanners and sun exposure for about 2 – 4 weeks prior to the procedure. You may be asked to stop using at-home skin treatments that feature compounds, such as Retin-A/Renova, tetracycline, minocycline, and doxycycline, a few days prior to each appointment. You will likely need to avoid taking anti-inflammatory medications and blood thinners one week before your treatment to help prevent bruises from developing, as the laser treatment can make capillary walls weaker for a period of time. You should also use sun protection (like a hat and sunscreen) since your skin will be extra sensitive.

Why should I get multiple IPL sessions?
We recommend getting a series of IPL treatments to provide gradual improvements to your skin. Your skin needs time to heal and recover after each treatment, allowing subsequent procedures to bring you gradually closer to your goals without causing any damage. Every session will help to diminish spots and other surface irregularities. Several treatments also allow for longer-lasting aesthetic improvements. Book your consultation with a member of Stephanie Antepara's staff today at our Windermere, FL location to determine if IPL at Javani Med Spa is right for you.
