Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) therapy, sometimes called a photofacial or photorejuvenation, offers patients the chance to improve the tone and texture of their skin without significant recovery or downtime. The number of treatments will vary from patient to patient according to your specific appearance goals. You should see a change in your skin right after your first treatment session. At first, brown spots will actually become darker and you may see some redness. This can be covered by makeup, and should resolve quickly. Skin will look smoother and your skin tone will become more even, with the effects becoming gradually more visible following each session.
