Featured Image

When you’re concerned with how your skin looks because of signs of aging, dark circles, acne scars, or sun damage, an IPL photofacial in Dallas, TX can rejuvenate your skin. At Evolve Med Spa, Dr. Tricia Shimer performs a skin analysis during a consultation to see if you qualify for Lumecca IPL or intense pulsed therapy. This skin rejuvenation facial helps both men and women with hyperpigmentation on the face, neck and chest to revive their skin. This minimally invasive treatment uses intense pulses of light to heat the skin to regenerate skin cells and reduce discoloration. What results is brighter skin. Our patients see an improved tone, less hyperpigmentation, and a youthful glow after their IPL photofacial.

Am I a candidate for a photofacial?

A photofacial works by penetrating the deep layers of the skin to improve different complexion concerns, including dullness, redness, or sun spots. There is little to no recovery needed after your treatment.

The best candidate for an IPL treatment in Dallas, TX is someone who has:

  • Brown spots (hyperpigmentation)

  • Dilated capillaries

  • Melasma

  • Rosacea

  • Sun and age spots

  • Visible pores

Dr. Shimer can determine if you qualify for this skin rejuvenation that will help you improve your skin.

What happens during an IPL photofacial?

At Evolve Med Spa, one of our experienced aestheticians will take you into a private treatment room for your IPL photofacial. Your treatment takes about 20 – 30 minutes. To prepare for IPL treatment, we will clean and dry your skin and then cover your eyes with shields. An IPL photofacial is performed with a handheld device that passes over the skin and emits laser energy pulses. Some patients experience mild discomfort, but it is usually tolerable.

Recovery from an IPL photofacial

There is no real recovery after a photofacial. However, you may look swollen and pink for a day. Dr. Shimer recommends you apply a cream that promotes healing and helps with irritation. Anti-inflammatory medication is prescribed to help you with swelling. For the next few days, any skin irregularities will rise to the surface of your skin and begin to flake away. We recommend that you refrain from picking at your skin as it heals, as it can jeopardize your results.

Do I need multiple IPL sessions?

While you will notice skin improvements after your first treatment, your skin will get the best results after multiple photofacial sessions. Dr. Shimer recommends that you get 2-3 sessions of Lumeccca IPL monthly at Evolve Med Spa in Dallas, TX. This offers gradual improvements to your skin. Each treatment helps to fade spots and other surface irregularities while brightening your skin.
