IPL and Genesis Q & A

Are IPL and laser treatments different?

Yes. Intense pulsed light (IPL) and laser treatments with the Laser Genesis platform are both used to revitalize and rejuvenate your skin, but they work in different ways. An IPL skin treatment — also known as an IPL photofacial — uses bursts of bright light to target skin cells.

IPL has the ability to gently penetrate through the surface of your skin with broad-spectrum bursts of high-intensity light to treat a wide variety of issues during a single session. Alternatively, Laser Genesis uses a more invasive calibrated laser beam — Nd:YAG 1064 nm — to target more specific skin concerns.

Both IPL and Laser Genesis treatments are highly effective at resolving sun damage and age-related skin issues. But because each type of treatment has different energy sources, they’re each used to target specific skin concerns.

What can IPL and Laser Genesis treat?

At Complexion, you get to meet with a dedicated skin care practitioner who talks with you about your concerns and helps you decide if you’re a better candidate for IPL treatments or Laser Genesis. You can request an IPL photofacial to treat:

  • Sun damage
  • Skin redness
  • Enlarged pores
  • Facial vessels
  • Acne breakouts
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Fine lines and wrinkles

Laser Genesis treatments may be more beneficial if you want to target:

  • Rosacea
  • Acne scars
  • Tiny capillaries
  • Enlarged pores
  • Sagging or loose skin
  • Fine lines, folds, and wrinkles
  • Collagen and elastin production

IPL and Laser Genesis treatments are ideal for reversing the effects of aging and improving the skin on your face, neck, décolleté, or another problem area. The team at Complexion generally recommend a series of at least two to four monthly IPL or Laser Genesis sessions to achieve optimal results.

Is there any downtime with IPL or Laser Genesis treatments?

Your IPL or Laser Genesis treatment from Complexion may cause some slight redness that lasts for just a few hours. This is just a result of increased blood flow to the area and an increase in your skin’s temperature. Aside from that, you won’t have any significant downtime and will be ready for a night on the town the same day as your IPL or Laser Genesis treatment.

Book your IPL or Laser Genesis consultation at Complexion by requesting an appointment online. You can also call the medical spa to speak with a team member.
