Buying an IPL or Intense Pulsed Light Machine for your Medical Spa?
Do you have clients that want clear skin from blemishes and pigmentation?
How about a customer that has fine lines and wrinkles on their face and wants to look younger?
What is the IPL Photo Facial Machine?
An IPL therapy is used to treat sun damage, wrinkles, stretch marks, and age spots. IPL is also known as photorejuvenation or photofacial. Treatments are performed at med spas and doctor’s offices and can be used to erase mild sun damage, brown spots, freckles, or irregular pigmentation on the face, neck, or even chest.
IPL Skin rejuvenation machine treatments produce healthier and younger-looking skin. IPL PhotoFacial is a powerful, intense pulsed light Photofacial to treat pigmented and vascular lesions.
IPL facials, also known as Pulsed Light Therapy, involve a handheld device that emits pulses of broad-spectrum light through direct contact with the skin. It acts on the deeper layers of skin, making it ideal for treating broken capillaries, sun damage, and other impurities.
While relatively simple, a medical professional should always perform the procedure to get the very best results and minimize any potential risks.
IPL photofacial light is soaked up by the hemoglobin and melanin in the skin, intentionally damaging these areas. The damaged melanin breaks up and is absorbed by the skin, decreasing its appearance on the skin’s surface. The damaged hemoglobin stimulates blood flow, causing the melanin to be absorbed more efficiently.
IPL stands for intense pulsed light. It’s a type of light therapy used to treat wrinkles, spots, and unwanted hair. IPL equipment can be used as a Spider vein removal machine, Skin hyperpigmentation machine, Age spot removal machine, Dark spots removal machine.
What are the other names for IPL treatment?

What type of IPL systems are there?
There are different types of IPL lights out there, such as E-Light, M-Light, ELOS, etc. Most equipment works the same but doesn’t provide the same results.
How do the IPL machines work?
IPL has been around for a while and is used to treat many skin issues such as hair removal, skin pigmentations, acne, spider veins, and more! These days are also using the Intense pulsed light to treat evaporative dry eye disease as well. IPL works thanks to our melanin in the skin. The melanin helps to absorb the Intense pulse light and helps to ‘kill’ the hair follicles, promote skin healing, and other skin impurities.

How well does it work?
When we are talking about laser hair removal, IPL works best for darker hair on lighter skin. IPL works best for darker hair on lighter skin. This treatment won’t be the best option for Fitzpatrick levels five and up. It takes numerous treatments to achieve the desired goals. THE newest IPL technology works as well as laser treatments for skin impurities.
What are the results of IPL facials
- Less visible signs of rosacea
- Less visible birthmarks
- Less visible signs of aging
- Fewer freckles or not at all
- Less visible sun damage
- Less visible blood vessels
- Less visible hair or not at all
How often can you get the treatment?
We recommend the providers treat your clients every four weeks. When performing too many treatments, it can cause skin irritation and for laser hair removal - not enough time to catch up with the hair’s lifecycle.
Possible side effects
Most people experience mild redness or swelling after the procedure, which typically fades within a day or two.
In some cases, you may experience:
- change in skin color
How long do IPL rejuvenation results last?
The treatment results depend on your client’s skin type, age, how long they have spent time in the sun, age, and genetics. Usually, the IPL photofacial results last from 6 months to a year. If your clients want to keep their products longer, recommend providing the facial every 6 -12 months. To keep the collagen production going, it may take only 2-3 treatments to maintain a younger-looking complexion.
Are the results permanent?
For hair removal, IPL removes numerous hair permanently, but not 100% of them. We would call IPL treatment semi-permanent for hair removal. When treating impurities on the skin such as rosacea, hyperpigmentation, scarring, and more - the results are permanent. When we talk about treating aging skin, the results are not permanent but can be longer-lasting when treated regularly.
How many treatments are needed?
For body and facial treatments, it’s recommended 3-6 treatments depending on the skin issue and skin type. For hair removal, it takes about 6-12 treatments to get rid of the hair.
Is IPL suitable for skin tightening?
Many people love to tighten their skin with laser treatments. It is a great non-invasive technology to target sagging skin on the face, including the neck, chin, and jawline area. IPL skin tightening works almost like RF, where the intense pulsed light delivers heat underneath the skin, which helps the body recreate more collagen. IPL skin tightening is safe for all skin types and can be used for many areas of the body, including the abdomen, thighs, arms, and buttocks.
Does IPL treatment hurt?
The provider will apply the cooling gel before the IPL skin tightening. Your client will feel little to no discomfort during the treatment. The skin can get slightly red but will calm down shortly after the treatment.
Can you have botox after IPL treatment?
Botox can be performed right after IPL treatment but not before the treatment.

How to use the IPL system?
IPL machines give you options to input your client’s features such as hair color, skin type, hair density, and more. When everything is entered according to your client, the system will tell you which intensity to use, the filter to install, and pulsed light settings.
How to perform IPL treatment?
The provider will start by cleaning the area which is being treated. Secondly, rubbing a cool gel onto the skin and thirdly applying the IPL light pulses on the skin. Goggles are provided to protect the patient’s eyes.
What is the treatment protocol for IPL?
Understanding how the IPL works before you begin to engage the machine on a client’s body is essential. The IPL laser has a combination of radiofrequency (RF) and optical energy that removes hair or treats another skin condition. Radiofrequency energy heats the skin and bulges, and optical power heats the deeper levels of the skin.
*Check your patient’s medical history before performing any treatment.*
Quick Basic View of Treatment Protocol:
- Apply a thin layer of gel to a designated area for treatment. The IPL laser tip will be placed firmly on the skin and needs to be surrounded by the gel.
● Hold IPL tip perpendicular to the skin and move it against the hair follicle growth for hair removal, and a photofacial one, the treated area
● Recommended using the grid pattern to break down the treatment by sections. You can use a white eyeliner pencil which creates better results when treating larger sizes.
● Place the IPL pulses adjacently with approximately 20% overlap for each pulse to cover the treatment area.
What are the treatment areas to be treated?
IPL treatment can be performed in many areas of the body, such as the legs, abdomen, face, buttocks, and thighs.
How long is the treatment?
The typical IPL treatment lasts from 20-30 minutes per session.
Let’s compare some of the technologies with IPL Photo facials
IPL treatment vs. RF Lifting
As mentioned before, IPL and RF technology have somewhat ‘similar’ ways to treat the skin against impurities, but one IPL with light and RF is based on electricity. Both treatments work with the deeper layers of the skin.
IPL vs. MIcrodermabrasion
IPL and Microdermabrasion work with different skin layers. While microcurrent is treating the top layer of the skin, IPL digs deeper into the skin. Microdermabrasion doesn’t harm deeper layers of the skin.
IPL treatment vs. Hydrodermabrasion
Just as comparing Microdermabrasion with IPL, hydrodermabrasion works with the top layer of the skin as well. Hydro dermabrasion is a non-invasive way to obtain a healthy and hydrating glow, while IPL treats more developed skin concerns through deeper layers of the skin.
IPL vs. Microcurrent
Microcurrent works low-voltage current to re-educate the muscles. IPL uses wavelengths of light to treat the skin. Both technologies are a great way to provide anti-aging treatments; the treatment numbers vary between the both.
IPL Photofacial vs. LED
Both treatment methods use light to treat specific skin concerns. LED therapy uses lower light energy, while during the IPL treatment, the light is absorbed more deeply. IPL treatment is meant for larger areas of the skin than LED light therapy.
How to maintain our IPL system?
Cleaning the Main Host
The main machine case or body must be clean with a soft cloth.
Cleaning the Sapphire Crystal
The Sapphire crystal must be kept clean at all times. Always use a soft cloth or wet cotton balls. Sanitize the treatment head with alcohol wipes.
Replacing the E-light Treatment Handpiece
Each E-light treatment handpiece has a limited service life. After consuming 60,000 - 100,000 shots, the provider must replace the filter.
Control the amount of water, add it if systems show a low level.
IPL treatment aftercare
After receiving laser treatment, it is essential to take care of the treated area.
Here are recommended procedures:
- The Erythema (redness) and PFE are expected and typically resolve with a few hours to a few days after Laser treatment. Patients should apply a wrapped ice pack 15 minutes every 1-2 hours and 1% hydrocortisone cream 2-3 times per day for 3 to 4 days or until resolved. Patients are advised to contact their provider if erythema persists for more than five days as PIH can occur with prolonged erythema.
● Singed Hairs on the skin may be evident immediately after treatment, so apply a moist washcloth to wipe these hairs off.
● Direct sun exposure is avoided and so apply sunscreen of SPF 30 daily for four weeks after treatment to help minimize the risk of pigmentary changes.
● The provider should provide written aftercare information for patients.
What are the consumables for the provider?
The provider will need a cooling and conductive gel for the treatment.
IPL hair removal treatments are recommended for untanned and white skin. IPL will be an excellent treatment option for many looking to treat specific skin impurities. A great candidate is someone with sun-damaged, discolored, someone with rosacea and hyperpigmentation.
