What is an IPL facial/ Photofacial?

A photofacial or IPL photorejuvenation treatment is a skin treatment that uses a light based technology to address multiple skin issues. It is a time tested technology trusted worldwide by scores of dermatologists. It is done by using a machine called Intense pulse light (IPL) which emits a broad spectrum of visible light (400-1200 nm). Specific filters are used to give a more specific wavelength of light for specific indications like acne, hair reduction and photorejuvenation. This treatment is a very important tool for skin rejuvenation.

Why do we need a photofacial treatment in Delhi?

Today’s fast paced lifestyle and environmental stressors take a toll on our skin and initiate premature ageing. You may start to see signs of ageing like fine lines, open pores, uneven skin tone and pigmentation at a very young age & obviously you won’t like to look older. Skin rejuvenation using IPL photofacial in Delhi is one of the safest and most effective treatments to combat this which helps to maintain a youthful and radiant skin.

How frequently should IPL photofacial be done?

We recommend IPL photofacial every 3 weeks for initial 3-4 sessions. This is to give an initial push to hasten the recovery of the damaged skin. Later on, it can be done every 6-8 weeks to maintain the results.

Things to Know

An IPL photofacial is a wonderful treatment which addresses a lot of skin issues:

  • Open pores
  • Dull skin
  • Uneven skin tone
  • Pigmentation
  • Redness or increased sensitivity

An IPL photofacial treatment in Delhi can be done in all adults of any gender. In younger individuals, it helps to control acne breakouts as well as maintain the glow whereas in slightly older age groups,it helps combat the signs of ageing.

Photorejuvenation using the Intense Pulse Light in Delhi has multiple benefits as follows:

  • It induces new collagen and elastin fibre synthesis in the skin, thus making the skin soft and supple.
  • It improves blood circulation in the skin, thus making the skin glow.
  • The melanin component acts as a chromophore which is destroyed by heat generated by the treatment, thus it helps in reducing the pigment.
  • It reduces acne by acting on the bacteria called P.acnes.

The fourth step of Satya’s 5D facial treatment in Delhi involves ultrasonic delivery of serums rich in skin vitamins and growth factors directly to the cells in epidermis and dermis. We choose these serums according to the skin issues which you have.

The fifth step is application of a soothing mask to help your skin to cool down and imbibe the benefits of all the previous steps.

IPL photofacial uses broad spectrum light in the visible spectrum to treat many skin concerns. It is a very safe technology and has very low incidence of side effects.

IPL photofacial treatment doesn’t make you dependent on it. Therefore, even if you leave the treatment, the positive effects which the treatment brought to your skin stay. The condition of your skin would be much better as compared to when you started the treatment.

But we all know that ageing is an ongoing phenomenon and environmental stressors are always there. That is why, we recommend you to continue the IPL photofacial treatment for skin rejuvenation but at a reduced frequency later on.

  • Use sunscreen regularly and repeat especially while going out in the sun.
  • Use a gentle cleanser and moisturiser regularly.

An IPL photofacial treatment delivers results which are not just superficial or very temporary as with regular salon facials. The IPL light penetrates in the skin and works to improve both epidermis and dermis as well as improved blood circulation. That is why, there is a decrease in abnormal pigmentation leading to a clearer skin tone. There is improvement in skin collagen and elastin levels leading to improved strength and elasticity of the skin.

We can’t expect these effects from conventional facials at parlours.

The IPL photofacial is a quick 20 minute procedure with no downtime and instant improvement.
