What are IPL PhotoFacials?

IPL PhotoFacials are a specialized skin treatment that uses intense pulsed light (IPL) technology to target and reduce a variety of skin concerns, such as age spots, wrinkles, sun spots, rosacea, and even facial veins. This light-based technology targets the melanin in the skin to produce a brighter, smoother complexion with fewer signs of aging.

IPL vs. IPL PhotoFacials

Traditional IPL treatments are designed to reduce the signs of aging, but they tend to be more aggressive and can cause discomfort. IPL PhotoFacials, on the other hand, are gentler and gradually improve skin tone, texture, and clarity. In addition, our Chelmsford IPL PhotoFacials are customizable, making it easy to target specific skin concerns.

Am I a candidate for IPL PhotoFacials?

Most people are good candidates for IPL PhotoFacials, as long as their skin is healthy and not overly sensitive.

However, people with certain medical conditions may not be appropriate candidates, including those with:

  • Pregnancy or lactation
  • Photosensitivity disorders such as lupus
  • Uncontrolled diabetes
  • Recent sunburns or tanning treatments
  • Open wounds or rashes in the treatment area

Concerns that can be addressed with IPL:

  • Age spots: Also known as sun spots or liver spots, age spots develop when the skin is exposed to too much sun. IPL can help reduce their appearance by targeting melanin.
  • Fine lines and wrinkles: Reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by targeting skin cells to boost collagen production.
  • Discoloration: Reduce the appearance of discoloration, such as sun spots, age spots, and freckles.
  • Facial veins: Reduce the appearance of facial veins by targeting the blood vessels in the skin.
  • Rosacea: Reduce the appearance of rosacea by targeting the melanin in the skin, which helps reduce inflammation.

Consultation and Preparation

During your consultation, your doctor will work with you to customize your treatment plan and determine the best approach for achieving your desired results. Before beginning treatment, it’s important to avoid sun exposure and wear sunscreen daily. You should also refrain from waxing, tweezing, or using any bleaching agents in the treatment area.


During the procedure, your doctor will apply a cooling gel to protect your skin and then pass the IPL device over the treatment area. The device emits gentle pulses of light that target problematic areas. Depending on the size of the treatment area, the procedure can take 15-30 minutes.
