IPL – Photo Rejuvenation Facial
Citrus Spa & Salon IPL -PHOTO FACIAL Services
Reduces visible signs of premature aging, such as sun damage, brown spots, visible veins, discoloration, and fine lines and wrinkles. The treatment is powered by Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) with SmartPulse™ technology that delivers precise light through several layers of skin. This generates heat when absorbed by the targeted tissue, which corrects imperfections in the skin without damaging any of the surrounding tissue. A real-time cooling system works to keep your skin protected throughout treatment.

How does IPL Photofacial work?
IPL Photofacial is Intense Pulsed Light that emits multiple wavelengths into the skin and effectively targets pigment producing cells below the surface of the skin. The light energy is converted to heat energy and destroys the hyperactive melanin producing cells in the layers of your skin, eventually dispersing pigmented areas. The spots are pulled to the surface, eventually turning into a coffee-ground-like texture that eventually flakes off revealing beautiful, radiant skin beneath.
Am I good candidate for this treatment/ Will this treatment work for me?
The best candidate is someone who has an uneven complexion with signs of discoloration or visible veins on their skin. Photofacial treatments may also work to improve the look of fine lines.
I have darker skin, can I still get this treatment?
Photofacial treatments work best for light to medium skin tones
Is IPL Photofacial painful?
The applicator has a cooling feature built into it to make the treatment as comfortable as possible, but you might feel a bit of discomfort if you’re treating a more sensitive area, like the upper lip. If you find it too uncomfortable, let the operator know and they can adjust the treatment accordingly.
How long will the results last and are they permanent?
It really depends on how your skin reacts to the treatment and how you care for your skin afterward. For example, if you protect your skin from the sun, the results will last longer. We recommend one touch-up session every 3-6 months, depending on your skin responds to the treatment.
Do I need to do anything after my treatment?
Avoid tanning for at least 2 weeks before and 2 weeks after your treatment, and wear sunscreen. You should also avoid hot baths, massages, or any treatment that requires direct contact with the skin for the first 2 days after your treatment.
