  • Vascular lesions

What is IPL photofacial, and how does it work?

IPL photofacial, or intense pulsed light therapy, is a non-invasive procedure that emits multiple wavelengths of light energy to target the dermis. This light is absorbed by melanin (pigment) and hemoglobin (red blood cells) in the skin, causing controlled damage to these areas. The body’s natural healing process then removes the damaged tissue, promoting collagen production and resulting in clearer, rejuvenated skin with reduced imperfections. To learn more about IPL photofacial in North Andover, contact our office for a consultation.

What makes BBL HERO unique?

BBL HERO, short for BroadBand Light High Energy Rapid Output, represents the next generation of phototherapy. Unlike traditional IPL systems, BBL HERO delivers faster, more powerful, and deeper treatments. Its advanced cooling technology ensures patient comfort, while its ability to treat a broader range of skin conditions anywhere on the body ensures superior, more precise results. While traditional IPL technologies necessitate 5 to 6 sessions, BBL HERO can offer optimal results in 1 or 2 sessions!

You are an ideal candidate for IPL photofacial if you:

  • Want to improve your overall skin tone and texture.
  • Want to reduce the appearance of age spots or sun damage.
  • Want to address vascular issues like rosacea or broken capillaries.
  • Are in good health and have realistic expectations.
  • Are not pregnant or breastfeeding.
  • Do not have active skin infections or open wounds.

What happens during the IPL photofacial session?

During your IPL photofacial session, the BBL HERO handheld device emits pulses of broad-spectrum light onto your skin. This light penetrates the skin layers, targeting pigment and vascular issues without harming surrounding tissue. You might feel a slight stinging sensation akin to a rubber band snap, but BBL HERO includes cooling mechanisms that ensure comfort. IPL photofacial in North Andover concludes within 30 minutes and involves no downtime.

What is recovery like after IPL photofacial?

After your IPL photofacial, you may experience mild redness and a warm sensation, similar to a sunburn, which subsides within a few hours. Pigmented lesions might darken before naturally flaking off. It’s essential to avoid direct sun exposure and apply sunscreen diligently. Within days, you’ll notice clearer, more radiant skin as the treated areas heal and rejuvenate.

What results can I expect after IPL photofacial?

After your IPL photofacial, you’ll start noticing improvements within a week. While most IPL photofacials require 3 to 5 sessions, the BBL HERO can offer dramatic results in 1 or 2 sessions spaced a month apart. The results last several months to a year, but regular maintenance treatments can prolong the benefits, helping you maintain radiant and youthful skin.

Preparation Guidelines:

  • Avoid sun exposure and tanning beds for at least two weeks before treatment.
  • Discontinue the use of topical retinoids, exfoliants, and products containing salicylic acid or glycolic acid for several days prior to IPL.
  • Shave the treatment area the day before or the day of the appointment, ensuring the skin is clean and free of lotions or cosmetics.
  • Inform your provider about any recent medications, supplements, or medical conditions that may affect the treatment.
  • Stay hydrated and maintain a healthy skincare routine leading up to your appointment to optimize skin health and recovery.
  • Arrive at your appointment with clean skin, free from lotions, oils, or makeup, to ensure optimal treatment results.
  • Follow any additional pre-treatment instructions provided by your provider.

Aftercare Guidelines:

  • Apply a soothing gel or moisturizer to the treated area immediately after IPL treatment to alleviate any discomfort and hydrate the skin.
  • Avoid direct sun exposure and use a broad-spectrum sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher on the treated area, even on cloudy days.
  • Do not pick, scratch, or exfoliate the treated skin to prevent irritation, scarring, or uneven pigmentation.
  • Avoid hot baths, saunas, steam rooms, and strenuous exercise for at least 24 to 48 hours post-treatment to minimize inflammation and reduce the risk of complications.
  • Follow any specific post-treatment instructions provided by your provider, including the use of recommended skincare products or medications to optimize healing and results.
  • Attend follow-up appointments as scheduled to monitor progress, address any concerns, and assess the need for additional treatments.

I first have to say that I have had my lips done at 5 different places over the last 6 years, but always kept looking for other places because I was never satisfied. After going to Adorn and seeing Jess-my lips have never looked better. She was extremely thorough and precise and that truly shows in the final results. She is amazing and the best of the best.

Jess is so professional and flexible! She listens to what you want and helps you achieve your desired look! She’s also excellent with helping you schedule your appointment and making sure you follow up after your Botox. Can’t wait to get back to Jess for my next round of botox as she makes me feel more self confident. :)

If you’re nervous or it’s your first time getting injections or anything done come to this place! I got eye and lip fillers. Outstanding service! Jess and her team are phenomenal. Incredibly flexible, detail oriented, transparent. Not the type of place that will convince you to do certain treatments simply for their benefit. I have recommended them multiple times to friends and family. The best of the best.

I started going to Adorn Medical Aesthetics for lip filler with Jess - she is such a professional and perfectionist, which is exactly what you want when getting this service. I have also had facials with Alyssa, who is very knowledgeable and calming, and does a great job. I absolutely recommend scheduling any service at Adorn Med, you won’t regret it!
