How Do Photo Facials Work?

Photo Facials use the energy of intense pulsed light (IPL), also known as BroadBand Light (BBL), to rejuvenate skin. During your Photo Facial, the laser specialist directs pulses of intense light at the target skin imperfection. The pulses of light pass through the tissue and deep within the skin. It heats the target area with thermal energy, stimulating several therapeutic responses. Photo Facials repair and rejuvenate the skin in several ways:


Intense Pulse Light (IPL) heats skin cells with thermal energy. This action stimulates collagen production. As a vital structural protein, collagen is responsible for maintaining taut, wrinkle-free, firm skin. In addition, the production of new collagen rejuvenates the skin and improves the appearance of lines. It also corrects other blemishes.


Photo Facials focus IPL energy on accumulations of melanin that commonly cause hyperpigmentation. Examples of hyperpigmentation are freckles, melasma, and brown spots. The dark pigment in melanin absorbs the light energy from a Photo Facial during your treatment. The intense thermal energy then safely heats the melanin to a fracturing point. This part of the treatment breaks the melanin up into small pieces. The fragmented pieces then become small enough to be collected and absorbed by the body. After your treatment, hyperpigmentation gradually fades.


IPL energy can also focus on damaged or irregular blood vessels below the skin that cause vascular lesions. These include facial veins, rosacea, port wine stains, and other forms of redness. The hemoglobin found in the blood absorbs the light from the Photo Facial. Thermal energy raises the temperature of the blood vessel, causing it to clot. This action cuts off the lesion’s blood supply, leading to the vessel’s destruction and replacement with new tissue.


Certain clinical studies prove that Photo Facials combat active acne in two ways: Thermal energy constricts the blood supply of sebaceous glands, reducing the overproduction of sebum (the skin’s oil that causes break outs.) Second, light energy destroys acne-causing bacteria that commonly build up on the skin’s surface.

IPL Photofacial Cost?

IPL Photofacial cost varies depending on the treatment area and the patient’s treatment plan. During your consultation with PHI Aesthetics, Photofacial prices are discussed in detail. If you are the right candidate for this rejuvenating skin treatment, your specialist customizes a treatment plan that addresses your skin concerns and remains well within your financial budget.

Photofacial Results

Patients begin to see results after one treatment. Most patients require 3 to 5 treatments before they see improvements. Photofacials are typically spaced one month apart to achieve the desired outcomes. As with any treatment, results may vary.* The exact number of treatments you need depends on the specific skin condition and aesthetic goals.

Photofacial Side Effects and Risks

IPL Photo-Rejuvenation is an FDA-cleared, non-invasive skin treatment. Side effects are rare, and typically no downtime is needed. However, it is important to note that after treatment, you may experience mild swelling or redness, which typically dissipates within hours afterward. Patients can apply makeup immediately after the facial. It is normal for veins to appear more reddened for 2 to 3 days after treatment. Brown spots and freckles may also appear slightly darker for up to a week after the facial.

During your free consultation, the laser specialist discusses Photofacial side effects in greater detail and answers any questions you may have regarding the treatment.
