Do Photo Facials Work?

Photo facials use energy from Intense Pulsed Light (IPL,) also known as broadband light (BBL,) to rejuvenate the skin. During a Photo Facial, the laser specialist directs pulses of intense light at your targeted skin imperfections. Photo facial repairs and rejuvenates the skin in a variety of ways.


Intense Pulse Light (IPL) heats the skin cells with thermal energy. This stimulates the production of collagen. Collagen, a vital structural protein, is responsible for maintaining firm, youthful-looking skin. The creation of collagen aids in the skin rejuvenation process by reducing fine lines, wrinkles, or blemishes.

Correcting Sun Damage and Brown Spots

Photo facials can focus IPL energy on pigmentation irregularities or the buildup of melanin (the dark pigment in the skin). Examples of melanin buildups include freckles, brown spots, and melasma.

During treatment, the dark pigment in melanin absorbs the light energy. The energy heats the melanin until it reaches a fracturing point. Once the melanin reaches this fracturing point, it will break into smaller pieces. After this occurs, the pieces are small enough for the body to collect. This process causes the hyperpigmentation to fade away gradually.

Improving Vascular Lesions or Redness

Photo Facial’s IPL energy can focus on damaged or irregular blood vessels below the skin’s surface. These types of skin imperfections cause vascular lesions like facial veins, rosacea, port wine stains, and other types of skin redness.

The hemoglobin found in the blood absorbs the light from the IPL laser. The thermal energy raises the temperature of the blood vessel, causing it to clot. This cuts off the blood supply to the lesion. Starved of blood, the vessel collapses. Once the lesion is destroyed, the body absorbs the collapsed vessel. The redness gradually fades from view.

Reducing Acne

Clinical research shows Photo facials combat active acne in two ways. First, thermal energy constricts the blood supply to the sebaceous glands. This process stops the overproduction of sebum. Sebum is the skin’s oil. Producing too much oil contributes to acne breakouts. Secondly, the light energy destroys acne-causing bacteria known to cause breakouts.. ¹

After treating vascular irregularities, veins may appear slightly redder for 2 to 3 days. Also, brown spots or freckles may appear darker for up to a week following treatment. During your consultation, your specialist will discuss this in detail.
