Can Photorejuvenation Be Used on Darker Skin Tones?

The IPL Photofacial is best suited to patients with lighter skin colors, but it can be safely used on brown skin as well. Lighter skin frequently shows the most dramatic changes and therefore often benefits the most from this approach. Darker skin has more pigment, which can interfere with targeting only the unwanted pigment clusters. Patients with darker skin also have a higher rate of developing unwanted side effects from laser skin treatments.

How IPL Works

Light-based treatments such as IPL and laser treatments target pigmented and vascular lesions, redness, and damaged skin cells without harming surrounding tissues. This is because the darker pigments of the skin absorb the energy and are damaged, eventually fading away. The procedure also triggers new collagen growth and the development of new skin cells.

The Icon MaxG attachment exceeds the capabilities of single-wavelength lasers and clears even deep blood vessels. It delivers low-energy light directly into the affected skin, safely and effectively. For vascular lesions, including spider veins, port-wine stains, and rosacea, light energy emitted by the Icon MaxG is absorbed by the blood, destroying the blood vessel. It gradually disappears, and the skin’s even tone is restored.

Icon MaxG treatments can be followed up at our medspa with other skin rejuvenation treatments. Dr. Mosher and our team can recommend services that may benefit you during a comprehensive skin consultation.

What to Expect

Patients who come to our medspa near Vancouver for IPL report that the quick treatments involve little discomfort. Numbing creams are rarely needed prior to these non-abrasive and non-invasive treatments.

What Can I Expect After a Photofacial?

No downtime is necessary following an IPL Photofacial treatment with the Icon MaxG system. Some patients have redness when they leave our office, but it diminishes by the end of the day.

IPL Treatment Plan

We customize each treatment plan to meet the needs of our patients. Most pigmented lesions require 3 or 5 treatments before they fade completely. Many patients with uneven or spotty pigmentation or broken capillaries need only a single treatment. Rosacea usually requires ongoing treatment until the condition is completely resolved. Patients with fair skin usually need fewer treatments.
