When you think of cosmetic facial treatments, you might first think of lines and wrinkles that come with age. But many younger men and women also have problems like hyperpigmentation and an uneven skin tone.
Luckily, some facials can also help with these problems and give people of almost any age a glowing, bright, beautiful complexion. At Rediscover Aesthetics, we are proud to offer the innovative IPL Photofacial to people who want to get rid of sunspots, sun damage, and other skin flaws for cosmetic reasons.
Find out here what IPL is, how it works, and if it might suit you in this post!
Why Do Dark & Sunspots Show Up?
Many things can cause dark spots on the skin. Most of the time, more than one thing can cause uneven skin tone or dark spots. Some common reasons for skin spots are:
- Sun damage
- Melasma (possibly related to pregnancy or hormones) (perhaps associated with pregnancy or hormones)
- Acne scars
Sun exposure is undoubtedly one of the most common things that can lead to dark spots and sun spots on the face and neck.
Is it Possible To Take Away These Spots?
Even though makeup can help hide sun damage and other skin flaws, many patients want a more effective, easy, and long-lasting way to treat their sun-damaged skin.
IPL photofacial therapy can be an excellent way for these men and women to get rid of sunspots and get more even skin on their faces.

How Long Does Results Show?
After IPL therapy, the patient will immediately have some slight redness and swelling. But these mild side effects can be covered with makeup and improved with over-the-counter creams, anti-inflammatory drugs, and other treatments.
Patients can go back to their normal activities right away after IPL therapy. However, it is essential to keep the skin moist and stay out of the sun while it heals. About 2–5 days later, patients will start to see flaking, which means that the sunspots and hyperpigmentation are coming to the skin’s surface.
Make sure to let this happen independently and not pick at or scratch the skin. Patients should be able to enjoy their glowing new skin after about a week.
How Many Times Will You Need IPL?
Even though many people are happy with the results of just one IPL photofacial, the best and longest-lasting results come from a series of 4 to 5 IPL sessions, each about a month apart.
During your first appointment, your provider will look at your skin, discuss your goals, and help you figure out the best way to schedule your treatments.
IPL photofacial can help you get rid of sunspots so you can confidently show off your face without makeup. You may also be a good candidate for IPL therapy if you are tired of covering up dark spots or sun damage and want to feel confident going without makeup.
