IPL (Intense pulsed light) harnesses the power to heal damaged and aging skin. The wavelengths eliminate imperfections, reverse visible sun damage, and boost your skin’s natural glow.

The IPL device stimulates your body’s natural collagen production with gentle heat from the light. Our providers can selectively target skin damage at various depths while leaving the healthy tissue around it untouched.

We can address multiple skin concerns utilizing IPL at Renaissance Dermatology & Aesthetics in Zachary, with excellent results in all age groups and little to no recovery time. Plus, the boost to your body’s natural collagen production will cause your results to improve over time.

WHAT TO EXPECT The IPL Photofacial Process

IPL Photofacial


When you come to Renaissance Dermatology & Aesthetics for the IPL Photofacial in Zachary, we will first provide a thorough consultation to ensure you are an ideal candidate and discuss your desired results. After examining your skin, we’ll be able to assess how many IPL sessions you will need to meet your goals


IPL Photofacial Treatment

We recommend that you come to your appointment without any makeup or products on your skin. Before beginning, we’ll cleanse your skin and apply a clear gel to the treatment area. You’ll be given protective eyewear for the duration of your treatment. Most patients report minimal discomfort as the provider gently glides the IPL device over the treatment area.


Next Steps

After completing your treatment, we’ll answer any questions and give you instructions on the best ways to maintain results, and assist you in scheduling any follow-up appointments. When you leave our Zachary office, you can return to daily activities; however, we ask that you stay out of the sun and apply broad-spectrum sunscreen.

Frequently Asked Questions

After receiving your IPL Photofacial in Zachary, you may begin to notice results within the first 2 weeks.

The results of IPL Photofacial generally last up to 1 year after completing your initial series of treatments. Annual treatments can help maintain results longer.

Your skin will look good for many months after your last treatment. However, the aging process will continue, and your skin will lose its radiant tone and smooth texture over time.
