Intense pulsed light (IPL) skin resurfacing, also known as an “IPL photofacial,” is one of the most innovative ways to restore your youthful skin. With each burst of light energy, a heat conversion occurs where your skin tissues are warmed up to therapeutic temperatures.
This increase in skin tissue temperature forces certain melanin color pigments (chromophores) to shatter. Over time, these broken down pigments are no longer recognized by your skin and get pushed to the top so they can shed away. New skin tissue rises to the surface, essentially replacing all of the discolored skin you once had.

IPL skin resurfacing from Forever Young Medical Spa is beneficial for beautifying the skin on your face, neck, décolletage, shoulders, or another area that shows signs of sun damage or aging.
In most cases, IPL skin resurfacing causes no visible reaction and you can return to all of your normal activities. But because IPL skin resurfacing increases your skin temperature, it’s common to experience some slight redness that should resolve within a couple of hours.
Since IPL skin resurfacing can make your skin slightly more sensitive to the sun, it’s important to apply sunscreen as soon as your treatment is over and continue wearing sunscreen every day. Forever Young Medical Spa even has a proprietary line of clinical-grade skin care products to enhance healing after your IPL skin-resurfacing session and improve the health of your skin.
Most men and women who have IPL skin-resurfacing treatments at Forever Young Medical Spa report feeling little to no pain during their session. If you have darker pigments, you may feel a slight sting, almost like a tiny rubber band flicking at your skin. This is very well-tolerated by most people.
You’re welcome to come into Forever Young Medical Spa about 20-30 minutes before your scheduled IPL photofacial to apply a topical numbing cream. This helps ensure you’re as comfortable as possible.
