Before After IPL Photofacial to remove pigmentation at Medicetics, Central London

IPL Photofacial

for uneven skin tone: pigmentation and redness

IPL Photofacial Therapy is a safe and effective treatment for skin conditions such as uneven pigmentation, brown spots and redness or rosacea. Even if you don’t have sun damage or hyperpigmentation, a few IPL treatments can help you unleash the smoothest, most even skin tone ever. IPL can also help to reduce the appearance of broken capillaries and even stretch marks, helping them to fade faster.

IPL Photofacial FAQs
Am I Suitable For IPL Photofacial Treatment? 

IPL Photofacial can be used to treat a variety of skin conditions including redness, broken veins, thread veins, rosacea, hyperpigmentation, sun damage, acne scars and stretch marks. Book a consultation today to discuss with our doctor or aesthetician.

Is IPL Photofacial treatment safe?

Yes, and the Medicetics team possess expert knowledge and training.

Does IPL Photofacial treatment hurt?

Although IPL delivers heat energy, it's delivered via a cooling handpiece which helps manage any discomfort that clients might feel. It is uncomfortable though - a 'fat from the frying pan' feeling with each zap. Our Aesthetic Practitioners have a lot of experience in performing the treatment for you as swiftly as possible! 

How many sessions will I need?

Depending on your skin concerns, your consultant will advise on the length of your treatment course. You will normally see results after one treatment but we would recommend a course of treatments for redness, rosacea and hyperpigmentation.

Aftercare & recovery

The average IPL Photofacial treatment takes about 30 minutes to perform depending on the area being treated.

If treating redness, usually mild flushing settles within the hour. But swelling and bruising can occur. If targeting pigmentation, there will be some darkening of the brown spots treated, and sometimes these areas can feel rough. Lightening takes around 5 days - longer for the hands and decolletage. 

Clients should expect to see the skin flaking for about a week after the treatment, which signifies increased cellular turnover and removal of darker pigmentation.
