What is IPL Photofacial?

IPL photofacial is a non-surgical, non-invasive skin rejuvenation technique that uses intense pulsed light (IPL) energy to improve your skin texture, quality, and complexion. The IPL energy destroys the unwanted pigments on the skin and encourages collagen production, making your skin look smooth, even-textured, firm, and youthful. The treatment is completely safe, painless, and comfortable.

Treating the Root Cause of Your Skin Concerns

JOLI Medispa believes in treating the root cause of your skin concerns, not just the symptoms. To that end, our IPL photofacial in Covington treatments are uniquely calibrated to address your specific needs and concerns.

The age-related loss of collagen and elastin is the root cause of fine lines, wrinkles, and skin laxity. Collagen fibers ensure your skin remains firm, taut, and voluminous, and the loss of collagen leads to sagging skin and fine lines. IPL photofacial delivers thermal energy into the skin’s underlying dermal layers, encouraging your body to produce collagen and elastin. This reverses the signs of aging, such as fine lines and wrinkles.

IPL photofacial also treats pigmentation problems, acne scarring, discoloration, freckles, and other textural concerns. The light from the IPL device is calibrated for quick absorption by the freckles, vascular lesions, pigmented spots, etc. The light energy destroys the unwanted pigments and broken capillaries, thereby improving the skin’s overall texture, tone, and evenness. The results are smooth, supple, and even textured skin.

IPL Photofacial with E-Light

JOLI Medispa performs IPL photofacial in Covington using a custom laser device called E-Light. This is an advanced laser device that combines three essential technologies — bipolar radiofrequency, intense pulsed light, and skin-contact cooling.

Intense pulsed light (IPL) energy preheats the targeted areas, paving the path for the radiofrequency energy. Both IPL and radiofrequency energy are suitable for treating numerous skin concerns, such as scars, fine lines, and pigmentation. However, combining the two makes them thrice as effective as they would be individually. Furthermore, the skin-contact cooling technology ensures a comfortable experience.

The Treatment & Recovery Process

The cosmetic provider examines your skin, discusses your expectations, and curates the ideal treatment plan. A numbing gel is applied to your skin to ensure optimal comfort, and you’re asked to wear protective goggles. The handheld E-Light device is passed over the targeted treatment areas, delivering steady bursts of IPL and radiofrequency energy. The treatment concludes within 30 minutes.

Side Effects

You may experience mild redness, swelling, and discomfort in the treatment areas for a few days. Your skin may become splotchy and flake off slowly, revealing smoother, more even-textured skin underneath.


IPL photofacial doesn’t involve any downtime. You can resume your daily activities immediately, but you should avoid strenuous workouts, saunas, and direct sunlight for a few days.

Onset of Results

The results start appearing after two weeks, with continued improvements over 3 to 5 months. Most patients need 3 to 5 treatments spaced a few weeks apart — your cosmetic provider will curate the ideal treatment plan.


The results last for several months before gradually fading. You need up to two maintenance sessions per year to retain the results.
