How can IPL photofacial benefit you?

IPL photofacial is a skin rejuvenation method that harnesses light energy to revitalize your complexion. IPL stands for intense pulsed light, a groundbreaking treatment that channels highly calibrated wavelengths of light energy to address specific skin concerns. Different wavelengths of light energy address different concerns, such as hyperpigmentation, loss of elasticity, or vascular lesions, making your skin look smooth and flawless. Cohen Medical Aesthetics performs IPL in Thousand Oaks using the cutting-edge Lumecca device.

IPL photofacial: revitalize your skin from within

IPL devices deliver highly calibrated wavelengths of light energy that penetrate different layers of skin. One wavelength of light may destroy and break down the pigmented lesions on your skin, facilitating the eventual removal of age spots, sunspots, and other pigmentation problems. Another wavelength may penetrate the deep dermis to stimulate collagen production, which corrects skin laxity and helps you achieve firm and taut skin. Yet another wavelength may break down the broken capillaries and veins and correct vascular lesions.

Benefits of IPL photofacial:

  • Non-invasive skin rejuvenation treatment
  • No incisions, injections, or chemicals

  • Stimulates natural collagen production
  • Can target different skin concerns
  • Personalized according to your conditions
  • Suitable for all skin types

Your IPL photofacial experience in Thousand Oaks

Cohen Medical Aesthetics uses two groundbreaking IPL in Thousand Oaks devices for the IPL photofacial treatment — Lumecca by InMode. During your consultation, our cosmetic providers will carefully examine your facial skin, discuss your goals and concerns, analyze your skin type and conditions, and curate a personalized treatment plan for you. They will select the appropriate IPL device for your concerns and adjust the wavelength to target your concerns.

During your IPL photofacial treatment, the cosmetic provider cleanses your facial skin and calibrates the chosen IPL device — Cutera or Lumecca. The wavelengths of the IPL device range from 500-600 nm — the ideal range for vascular and pigmented lesions. The cosmetic provider moves the handheld device over the treatment areas to deliver the appropriate wavelengths of light energy. The IPL photofacial session usually takes 30 to 60 minutes.

IPL photofacial: side effects and recovery

Your face will look slightly flushed after the treatment as if you’ve been out in the sun. You may also experience mild redness, tenderness, and skin sensitivity. You must apply powerful sunscreen to protect your skin from sunlight, and you should avoid direct sunlight for a few days. You can resume your daily activities and work immediately, but strenuous workouts should be avoided until the side effects dissipate completely.

IPL photofacial: onset and longevity of results

The IPL in Thousand Oaks photofacial results will gradually improve over several weeks. Most IPL devices necessitate 4 to 6 sessions for optimal results, but the Lumecca device provides dramatic improvements after 2 sessions spaced a month apart. You will experience the peak results a month after your final session. You may need 1 or 2 sessions a year to maintain optimal results for extended periods.
