Brighten Your
Complexion With Light Energy

IPL Photofacial, or Intense Pulsed Light Photofacial, is a cosmetic procedure that uses the power of light energy to improve skin tone and texture. The procedure involves using cutting-edge devices, like Lumecca, to deliver a calibrated wavelength of light into targeted tissues. This prompts the body’s natural healing response, correcting issues like sunspots, pigmentation irregularities, fine lines, and broken blood vessels. The treatment stimulates collagen production, resulting in a smoother, more even-toned, and rejuvenated complexion.

Concerns Treated with IPL Photofacial:

  • Sun damage
  • Age spots
  • Pigmentation irregularities
  • Redness and rosacea
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Broken blood vessels
  • Uneven skin texture
  • Enlarged pores

How Does IPL Photofacial Work?

IPL Photofacial utilizes the principle of selective photothermolysis. IPL emits a range of wavelengths targeting melanin (for pigmented lesions) and hemoglobin (for vascular irregularities) in the skin. The light energy is absorbed, converting into heat, which damages the targeted cells while leaving surrounding tissues unharmed. This prompts the body’s natural healing processes, gradually eliminating the treated imperfections and stimulating collagen production, leading to overall skin improvement.

Lumecca IPL

We employ Lumecca for IPL Photofacial. Lumecca harnesses advanced technology that delivers intense pulsed light with higher energy levels, effectively treating a broader range of skin concerns in fewer sessions. Its innovative cooling system ensures patient comfort during the procedure while minimizing the risk of side effects. Furthermore, we can calibrate the wavelengths of light to ensure optimal precision, making the treatment suitable for individuals with all skin types and colors.

Your Experience


During your IPL Photofacial session, you’ll first be provided with protective eyewear. Our skilled practitioner will apply a cooling gel to your skin, enhancing your comfort and facilitating light penetration. The Lumecca device will emit controlled pulses of intense light onto the target areas, causing minimal discomfort. At most, you might feel a mild snapping sensation as the light is absorbed by your skin. A Photofacial in Crown Point typically takes 20-30 minutes, and you can resume your daily activities afterward.


Following your IPL Photofacial, you might experience mild redness and a sensation similar to sunburn, which subside within a few hours to a day. Occasionally, pigmented spots might temporarily darken before gradually fading. It’s important to avoid direct sun exposure and use sun protection to protect your skin. Makeup can be applied immediately, and you can typically resume regular activities.


You can expect to see initial improvements within a week or two after your first IPL Photofacial session. The full benefits become apparent as your skin’s natural processes eliminate treated imperfections and stimulate collagen production over several weeks. Results typically last for several months, but ongoing maintenance sessions can prolong the effects. For optimal results, a series of 3 to 5 treatments, spaced about 3 to 4 weeks apart, is often recommended.

IPL Photofacial FAQs

Is IPL photofacial suitable for all skin types?

IPL photofacials in Crown Point are generally safe for all skin types, but individuals with darker skin tones may be at a higher risk of pigmentation changes. Our providers will carefully examine your skin and adjust the treatment to ensure optimal results for your skin type and concerns.

How many IPL photofacial sessions are typically needed to see results?

The number of IPL photofacial sessions required depends on individual skin conditions and desired results. However, most people undergo a series of 3 to 6 sessions spaced about 3 to 4 weeks apart to achieve optimal results, with improvement noticeable after each session.

Is there downtime after an IPL photofacial?

Most individuals experience mild redness and swelling immediately after treatment, which typically resolves within a few hours to a few days. Some may also notice temporary darkening or crusting of pigmented spots, which fade over time. While there’s no downtime after an IPL photofacial, you should avoid direct sunlight for a few days.

How long do the results of IPL photofacial last?

The longevity of IPL photofacial results depends on factors such as your skin condition, sun exposure, and skincare routine. With proper maintenance, the results can last anywhere from 6 months to a year or longer. Periodic maintenance may be recommended to sustain the benefits.

Is IPL photofacial painful?

During IPL photofacial, most individuals experience a sensation similar to a rubber band snapping against the skin. While discomfort levels vary, most find the procedure tolerable. Topical numbing cream can be applied before treatment to minimize any discomfort.
