Photofacial Q & A

  • How does a photofacial work?

    Photofacials use Intense Pulsed Light (IPL), which is a non-laser therapy that involves shining highly concentrated and intense beams of light intermittently on the surface of the skin. The pulses of light target pigment and vascular irregularities, smoothing out the skin’s tone and texture.

  • What does a photofacial do?

    Photofacials help to reduce the effects of aging & hyperpigmentation, leaving clients with younger, even, and healthier-looking skin.

  • Are photofacials safe?

    Yes! As long as they are being provided by a trained professional, photofacials are very safe. At Still Beauty & Med-Spa, we take lots of measures beforehand to ensure our clients are good candidates for a photofacial. We always require a medical form to be filled out prior to the treatment and do a patch test to ensure your skin reacts well to the IPL.

  • Are photofacials painful?

    No, there may be slight discomfort, but no numbing is needed, and the sessions are very quick. Some clients say it feels like a dull elastic band snapping against their skin, a pinprick, or sometimes they don’t feel anything at all! The Icon machine has a self-cooling tip that helps reduce any heat or pain.

  • Are there any side effects with photofacials?

    There usually is some pink/redness to the skin afterward, but that will go away within a few hours.

  • Who shouldn't get photofacials?

    IPL is not recommended for those with very tanned or naturally dark skin. Pregnant women should wait until after they have given birth before considering IPL. Patients taking Accutane must cease using the drug for at least six months before receiving an IPL treatment.


Photofacials are a laser rejuvenation therapy that stimulates collagen production and treats skin discoloration. It is a pain-free procedure that improves the appearance of hyperpigmentation, spider veins, broken capillaries, age spots, rosacea, and sun spots. It uses IPL (intense pulsed light), where a handheld device is used to produce a spectrum of light, penetrating the deeper layers of skin. Typically three to six sessions are recommended, but improvements can be seen after the first treatment. Additional sessions may be needed to address larger or darker spots.

Your technician recommends the number of sessions necessary to permanently reduce your hair growth.
    Before you start your laser hair removal treatments, you’ll need to stop waxing, if that’s your preferred form of hair removal. You need to have some hair in the follicle for the laser to have something to target since waxing removes your hair at the root. You should shave the day before your treatment.
    During your laser hair removal sessions, you and your technician wear protective goggles while they use a handheld device to direct the laser at your hair follicles. Treatment can take between 20-60 minutes, depending on the targeted body area. Most patients experience a mild sting when the laser zaps their hair follicles, but say laser hair removal is less painful than waxing.
    With advanced contact cooling technology, the handheld device helps regulate your temperature and maintain your comfort. You can also apply a cold compress or ice pack before and after treatment to keep your skin cool and comfortable.
    After your treatment, you will be provided a comprehensive post-care sheet.

  • Is laser hair removal permanent?

    Laser hair removal permanently reduces your hair growth. Everyone has a unique experience with laser hair removal, and some people may need a touch-up treatment every now and then. Also, hormonal changes, like those during pregnancy or menopause, can trigger new hair growth.

  • How much does laser hair removal cost?
