Skin Resurfacing and Photofacial
IPL Treatment For Your Rejuvenation
Skin imperfections such as sun damage, age spots, skin blemishes, and signs of aging can make patients appear older than they actually feel. Getting a photofacial can help combat various signs of aging, along with large pores, stretch marks, acne scarring, and so much more. This convenient and effective non-ablative treatment works underneath the skin to stimulate collagen and cell growth, restore firmness, and get rid of skin and sun damage obtained throughout the years.
As of August 2016, Luxe Medical Spa has had the only EVO FORTE system in the state of Texas installed thus far, and our aesthetic experts are trained and experienced enough to help our patients with improving their skin tone and texture.

What Is an IPL Photofacial Skin Resurfacing Treatment?
Also known as photorejuvenation, an IPL photofacial utilizes optimized wavelengths of broadband light to target specific complications of the skin to deliver a comprehensive resurfacing treatment for total facial rejuvenation. The EVO FORTE IPL 580 nm treatment contains integrated contact cooling along with Adaptive Pulse Control (APC) technology that automatically adjusts to provide the best treatment configuration for all skin types and conditions. The intense pulsed light (IPL) penetrates through the surface skin layer and is absorbed by melanin (pigment) and/or hemoglobin (red blood cells) to generate heat.
IPL Photofacial Treatment can help improve the appearance of:
- Sun damage
- Dilated or broken blood vessels
- Inflammatory acne and scarring
- Enlarged pores
- Fine lines and wrinkles
IPL Procedure & What to Expect
Once you’ve been verified as a good candidate for IPL therapy, the areas receiving the treatment will be cleaned and you will be provided protective eyewear. Because the EVO FORTE handheld device works on a molecular level to target specific areas, no injections or incisions are required, but rather a cooling gel is used to aid in numbing the site of treatment. When the targeted area is prepared and ready, the handpiece will be gently pressed onto your skin, with mild zaps and a possible stinging sensation felt amongst some patients. The procedure generally takes about 30 to 90 minutes, depending on the size of the area that needs treatment. Additionally, depending on the type as well as the severity of the issue at hand, a series of 3-5 treatments may be required in order to reap the full benefits of the photo facial procedure.
Post-Treatment Recovery & Care Tips
Once your IPL treatment session is complete, it is important to protect your skin and give the healing process some time, making sure to always treat your skin as gently as possible. Most patients are able to return back to their normal routines and daily life immediately after their treatment. In rare occasions, bruising and tenderness may be experienced and can take up to a week or two to fully heal.
Some important notes and care tips to keep in mind:
- Some minor redness and swelling may occur, but this can be remedied using a cold pack and taking anti-inflammatory medication.
- Crusting of the skin can be a possible side effect, which can last up to 10 days
- Age spots and freckles may appear darker following the procedure and can take anywhere from 3 days to a week for the intensity of the pigment to fade away and even out with the rest of your skin tone
- For pigmentation treatment and scarring, it may take up to a week for damaged cells to the surface and flake off of the body.
- Makeup may be applied right after obtaining the treatment, insofar that it is applied and removed with gentle care
- Avoid sun exposure and wear a high SPF sunscreen if exposure is inevitable.
- For the first few weeks, refrain from using retinol products, exfoliant scrubs, or chemical peels during your skin’s recovery time and to ensure you’re receiving the maximum benefits possible.
