FAQs: IPL Photofacials in West Melbourne, FL

How long until I see results with my photofacial?

Your results will depend on your goals and specific treatment. For example, if you are concerned with reducing sun spots or freckles, your treatment can take up to a week or longer to reveal optimal benefits. Soon after your treatment, targeted age spots or freckles will darken and turn into a “coffee ground” texture. These areas will naturally slough off and reveal lighter, clearer skin in the weeks following your treatment. If you are hoping to reduce redness or rosacea, you may need more than one treatment to obtain your desired results.


Are photofacials painful?

Many people compare a photofacial to the feeling of a rubber band snapping against the skin. This discomfort is short-lived, ending as soon as the light stops. Some people may feel a slight sunburn sensation for a few hours following their treatment, but this feeling quickly dissipates on its own. Others may walk away from their treatment feeling a comfortable and invigorating tightness to their skin.


How many photofacials will I need?

Your treatment will depend on your specific needs and goals. Since some skin concerns are more challenging than others, we will work with you to devise an efficient treatment plan that meets your unique needs.


Is there any downtime with a photofacial?

Depending on your skin type and the exact procedure performed, the side effects of a photofacial can wear off within a few hours, allowing for post-procedure makeup application. However, some patients may experience redness or dark spots for up to a week. The most important things to remember following photofacial treatment are to avoid the sun for several days and always wear sun protection with an SPF of 30 or greater that blocks both UVA and UVB rays.
