IPL Photofacialin Dedham

When you need to look your best, the IPL Photofacial at Dedham Medical Aesthetics can help. Our IPL Photofacial is a laser resurfacing procedure that drastically rejuvenates the skin in a series of quick treatments.

IPL repairs sun damage, lightens pigmentation, softens wrinkles, tightens skin, improves the look of scars, and corrects poor skin tone and texture. It may be used on the face, décolletage, hands, or anywhere the skin needs improvement.

This outpatient procedure is fast and convenient, providing remarkable skin quality improvement over the course of several weeks to months. With IPL Photofacial Dedham Medical Aesthetics can counteract the negative effects of aging and environmental factors on your skin.

What is an IPL Photofacial?

An IPL photofacial is a unique laser treatment that has been shown to be very safe and effective at resurfacing skin irregularities, while at the same time, helping to tighten and tone your skin. At Dedham Medical Aesthetics, our IPL photofacial treatment is an outpatient procedure performed with an innovative Intense Pulsed Light laser.

The IPL photofacial wand is used to deliver light beams to targeted areas of your face or body, enabling the precision controlled energy in these light beams to clear away imperfections. At the same time, it tightens the connective bands that are in your deep tissue layers for smoother and more youthful-looking skin.

What are the Benefits of an IPL Photofacial?

Does your appearance suffer from sunspots, sun damage, wrinkles, redness in the facial area, enlarged pores, or broken capillaries? If so, then an IPL photofacial treatment from Dedham Medical Aesthetics can help you rejuvenate and restore your complexion, clearing away these symptoms for a new you. Many patients enjoy the benefits of their IPL photofacial for up to two years.

Who Can Have the IPL Photofacial?

Nearly all men and women that have undesirable dark spots (pigmentation, melasma, freckles, liver spots, scars, etc.) and aging skin (wrinkles, dull skin, poor skin texture, loss of elasticity) can benefit from the IPL Photofacial.

IPL may be used in most parts of the body. However, we may suggest alternative treatments for patients with darker complexions and keloid scars, as the laser may be less effective on these skin types. IPL can destroy some hair follicles, particularly on light skin with dark hair. Therefore, do not use it in areas that you do not wish to have permanent hair removal.

With an IPL photofacial, you will notice your improved skin tone and texture emerging over a period of time, allowing you to look naturally renewed and rejuvenated. With your refreshed appearance, you will look younger on the outside, while feeling phenomenal on the inside. And with an IPL photofacial, your results will emerge gradually, so no one will ever know you have had a procedure performed.

About IPL Photofacial

For men and women looking to correct skin imperfections such as liver spots, rosacea, hyperpigmentation, freckles, spider veins, and poor skin quality, IPL may be the right fit.

Manufactured by Cynosure, it uses intense pulsed light to lighten dark spots and refine the skin. This advanced medical device uses precisely controlled light therapy to reach the deep dermal layer, using different wavelengths to rejuvenate to the skin.

IPL laser works by converting light energy into heat injury. This results in a carefully controlled micro-injury to the skin that is not harmful. In fact, doing so awakens the skin’s natural repair processes, helping to rebuild collagen structures and destroy unwanted pigmentation.

What Makes IPL Different from Other Lasers?

Cynosure’s IPL laser therapy device is among the leading skin rejuvenation devices on the market. Unlike other lasers, it emits low heat energy to avoid damaging the skin surface. IPL therapy uses more scattered light than other lasers, resulting in quicker healing.

While many other laser therapy devices use just one wavelength, IPL has multiple wavelengths. This means it is able to target various skin problems at once. It is safe and highly effective. The FDA approved its use in the early 1990s.

Your IPL Photofacial Consultation

If you are thinking of the IPL Photofacial for skin rejuvenation, see the laser skin experts at Dedham Medical Aesthetics for a consultation. Our informative consultation includes a skin evaluation and provides you with the opportunity to speak with an aesthetic medical professional to see what can be done to improve your individual skin concerns.

Our goal is to listen to your concerns to help you decide if the Dedham IPL Photofacial procedure will deliver the type of results you hope to accomplish. We have alternative treatments that may work better in some cases. No matter what skin issue is troubling you, our experienced team will suggest the right course of treatment to deliver the best results.

What is the Procedure for an IPL Photofacial?

Your procedure is a quick and painless treatment that can be performed over your lunch hour, as it only takes 30 minutes to complete. During your initial consultation, we will evaluate your skin issues, discuss your goals for your appearance, and work with you to develop an appropriate treatment plan.

In some cases, up to four treatments may be needed, depending on the condition of your skin, with treatments usually scheduled four weeks apart. You may start to see improvements in as little as two to three weeks, and then your final results will be achieved in the weeks and months after your treatment.

After your procedure, it is not uncommon for your skin to be slightly red and swollen, but this will subside within a few days. Because you will be somewhat more prone to sunburns following the procedure, wearing sunscreen when outdoors is particularly important.


Laser skin rejuvenation with the IPL Photofacial is a minimally invasive procedure. An anesthetic cream may be applied beforehand to numb the skin. As the laser is pulsed over the skin, a brief feeling of warmth and mild discomfort can be expected, similar to a pricking sensation. The treatment usually lasts 20-30 minutes on average.

After the IPL facial, most patients can expect to see early results within 2 weeks of treatment. Repeat treatments are recommended to see optimal results. Each IPL session should be scheduled 3-4 weeks apart. Generally, a treatment course of 3-6 IPL sessions is recommended; However, everyone is unique and you may need more sessions to correct stubborn dark spots.

Every patient is unique, and as a result, your costs will depend on your specific goals and objectives. Canton Medical Aesthetics is committed to making IPL photofacial affordable and accessible for everyone, which is why we offer convenient financing options, in addition to accepting cash, personal checks, and major credit cards.

Side effects are mild and temporary. When you come in for IPL photorejuvenation, the skin may remain red and tender for a few hours. A tinted mineral sunscreen will help protect your skin from the sun and conceal redness so that you may resume daily activities and work. After IPL, please avoid tanning, sun exposure, waxing, and topical skin treatments for the first 24-72 hours, as the skin is sensitized.
