IPL Photo Facial

What is it?

IPL Photo Facial

IPL Photo Facial helps to address skin complexion concerns like blotchiness, redness, rosacea, sun damage and brown pigmentation. It targets irregular pigment in your skin, to break it down so your body can metabolize it and flush it away on its own for an evenly toned, evenly coloured complexion. A radiant, rejuvenated face can leave you looking fresher, brighter and more youthful, requiring the use of less heavy concealers and makeup.


An IPL Photo Facial is Intense Pulsed Light which emits multiple wavelengths into the skin in order to effectively target pigment below the skin. This light energy is converted into heat, and attracts and destroys melanin-producing cells which are hyperactive by breaking them down into pieces small enough for the body to expel. The pigmented spots are pulled towards the surface of the skin, and will look like ground coffee or sand, until they eventually flake off. The result is glowing, rejuvenated, radiant skin.


After ensuring clean skin and placing safety goggles over your eyes, your Arion practitioner will begin to use the IPL applicator on the areas of your skin you discussed that you would like to target. Clients liken the feeling of an IPL Facial to the feeling of a rubber band snapping against the skin. It is not painful, but can be uncomfortable, in which case you can let your practitioner know.
