IPL photorejuvenation is an effective light therapy procedure for skin rejuvenation, improving skin quality, removing sun damage and evening out skin tone.

Photorejuvenation uses intense pulsed light (IPL) to stimulate the production of elastin and collagen in the skin, reducing wrinkles and evening out complexion. The IPL photorejuvenation procedure works at the cellular level – reducing inflammatory processes as well as reducing redness and pigment spots on the cheeks, tightening pores and improving acne-damaged skin.

The IPL procedure is suitable for all skin types and is safe, painless and non-invasive, meaning it does not damage the surface of the skin. Recovery is quick and it generally comes with few side effects. 

How does the photorejuvenation procedure work?

The photorejuvenation procedure is performed using the modern device M22 by the company Lumenis. 

During the procedure, a special handle is placed on the surface of the skin that emits different types of light impulses. You may feel flashes of heat on your skin during the procedure. The light energy is absorbed by the skin and acts directly on the tissues, helping to restore skin health and youthfulness. The treatment lasts approximately 15-30 minutes.

After the procedure, redness and flushing of the skin may occur, which usually passes within a few hours. Results are mostly visible after the first procedure.

Contraindications for photorejuvenation

  • Oncological diseases, epilepsy, melasma, keloid scars, active inflammations, including herpes
  • Tanned skin
  • The procedure is not performed during antibiotic treatment; at least two weeks must have passed since the end of the treatment.
  • The procedure is not performed during pregnancy and breastfeeding
  • The procedure is not performed on individuals under 18 years of age without the consent of a parent or guardian.

What to consider before and after the procedure

  • Avoid sunbathing (including going to the solarium) for at least two to four weeks before the procedure (risk of pigmentation). 
  • Avoid using self-tanning creams two weeks before and after the procedure.
  • Stop using creams containing retinol or other similar active ingredients three days before the procedure. Once the skin has fully recovered from the procedure, you may resume using it. 
  • Inform the specialist about any medications you are taking before the procedure.
  • Alcohol should not be consumed for at least one day after the procedure.
  • Avoid intense exercise for two days after the procedure.
  • Saunas and hot baths should be avoided for at least two weeks after the procedure.
  • Avoid sunbathing for at least two weeks after the procedure and use SPF 50 sunscreen for at least two weeks.
  • Wait at least two weeks before undergoing any other facial procedures.
  • Makeup can usually be applied immediately after the procedure.
  • Mild redness, flushing and swelling may occur for about one to three days after the procedure. Bruising may occur in rare cases. To reduce flushing, a cold compress can be applied to the skin, and a skin-repairing cream (such as Bepanthen, Burnshield, Cicabio, Cicaplast Baume, etc.) can be used to calm and restore the skin until it has healed.
  • After the procedure, the pigment may darken (as part of the pigment shedding process) and pigment crusts may form on the skin, which will naturally fall off in about seven to ten days. Do not remove them yourself.

IPL photorejuvenation is a safe and effective procedure, but like any other medical procedure, it has contraindications. The results are usually already visible after the first procedure, but we often recommend performing photorejuvenation as a course of two to three sessions with at least a one-month interval. After that, so-called maintenance procedures can be performed once or twice a year.

To ensure the suitability of the procedure and to prevent potential risks and complications, we recommend consulting with a laser treatment specialist before undergoing the procedure. During the consultation, the specialist will conduct a thorough analysis of the face, explain everything related to the procedure, and provide instructions for proper at-home skin care.
