Windsor Photofacial IPL
Everyday life can seriously affect the brightness, texture, and overall glow of our skin. Pollution, bacteria, dirt, and sun damage are all factors that can lead to the skin losing its radiance and shine.
Fortunately, as technology advances, so too does the beauty industry. Nowadays, many people are turning to IPL Photofacial treatment to tackle a range of skin issues. Photofacial treatments can be used to reverse a lot of the damage to the skin caused by everyday life. By using a laser that emits an intense pulsed light onto the skin, the procedure can turn back the clock and have us looking re-energized, healthier, and younger.
At Xanadu Med Spa, we’re obsessed with the IPL treatment. The procedure can help treat a multitude of skin issues, including acne scars, brown spots, age spots, and uneven tone.

An Intense Pulse Light Treatment That Works
The IPL treatments involve the use of a laser that emits an intense pulsed light on the skin. This laser heats up the upper layers of the skin, which in turn stimulates the production of collagen. This can significantly brighten the skin, stimulate new skin cell production, and improve skin tone.
What’s more, the intense pulse light can help fade unwanted pigment, which can help improve the appearance of hyperpigmentation and age spots.
Pigmented skin cells absorb the intense pulse light which can also help shrink broken capillaries and solve other skin pigment issues.
What Can Photofacial IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) Treatments Treat?
This treatment can be used to treat various skin conditions that millions across the world suffer from. Some of the skin issues that can be improved significantly with this treatment include:
- Broken capillaries.
- Dark spots.
- Uneven skin texture.
- Skin damage caused by sun exposure.
What to Expect during IPL Treatment
Each session usually takes between 30-60 minutes.
The IPL Photofacial treatment is similar to most laser treatments. During each session, a small handheld laser device will move across the surface of the skin to target the skin issue directly.
The intense pulse light is emitted onto the desired area to stimulate photo rejuvenation and treat the issue in question. The skin may look red and slightly swollen during the treatment, but this is to be expected while the device works its magic.
Is the Procedure Painful?
The IPL Photofacial treatment is a non-invasive gentle procedure that causes little to no irritation or discomfort.
The skin may feel sensitive after treatment and redness may be apparent, but the procedure is generally painless.
As the treatment is non-invasive and virtually painless, there is no recovery time necessary for this procedure. That means you can continue with normal activities soon after the treatment is done.
IPL Photofacial Results
On average, patients require 4-6 sessions of laser treatments to achieve the desired results.
The number of sessions necessary to achieve results may vary depending on a number of factors, including:
- Skin type.
- Extent of skin damage.
In order to make results last longer, many patients choose to schedule maintenance appointments every month or so after the initial treatment is completed.
What Areas Can Be Treated?
At Xanadu Med Spa, we primarily use the IPL Photofacial on the face, neck, and chest.
As we get older, our skin becomes wrinklier, duller, and loses its radiant glow.
The IPL treatment helps reverse the effects of sun damage, irritants, and other skin issues such as wrinkles and fine lines that become more apparent with age.
