Laser Facials

Skintec Laser Facials

IPL treatments can be used to erase mild sun damage, acne, rosacea, brown spots, freckles or irregular pigmentation on the face, neck, or even chest. While some redness and swelling may occur (which should subside within 24 hours), the procedure requires little to no downtime. Results are gradual with improvements to the skin beginning to appear in the days and weeks following the treatment.



The Carbon Facial is a great solution for Acne and oily skin to help regulate sebum production with little to no downtime. The treatment commences with a light Enzyme Peel. This is followed by the application of an Organic Carbon Mask, which has potent anti oxidants to help microexfoliate the skin and deep cleanse pores. The treatment is pain free and leaves skin bright and refined.

Laser works to lighten or remove Pigmentation by targeting and breaking down excess Melanin from the epidermis. Effectively targeting Hyperpigmentation, Freckles, Melasma, Pigmented Lesions and Age spots.



Rosacea is an inflammation in the skin and has numerous causes. The effects of this can be red veins, Rosacea, flushing or a hormonal response. Laser can work to destroy the damaged veins to ensure blood flows through the deeper healthier veins.



IPL stimulates collagen producing cells called fibroblasts. Increased collagen production helps to reduce wrinkles and treat scar tissue. These fibroblasts also contribute to the production of Hyaluronic Acid, a substance that keeps the skin moisturised and contributes to a youthful appearance.



The Laser Acne Treatment uses light energy to eliminate and improve congestion by penetrating below the skin’s surface boosting the skin from within. This treatment raises the skin’s temperature to effectively kill bacteria and restore the normal metabolic process to defend against future breakouts, whilst destroying overactive bacteria which is the cause of pore inflammation and congestion.

Frequently Asked Questions

Generally speaking, photofacials are used to treat skin blemishes and pigmentation issues. However, there are several specific conditions that fall under these categories. IPL photofacial treatments can be used to treat the following:

  • Broken capillaries (blood vessels)
  • Rosacea
  • Sun damage (sun spots)
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Spider veins
  • Freckles
  • Fine lines

First, the provider will apply a cool gel to your face and supply you with dark glasses to protect your eyes from the light. Once you’ve been prepped, the person administering your treatment will take a hand-piece with a cold smooth surface and run it along your skin as it pulses light.

IPL photofacials are performed in a series, with each treatment lasting from approximately 20 minutes to an hour, depending on the amount of skin being treated. Typically, patients receive between three and six treatments spaced roughly one month apart.

For their part, IPL photofacials can be mildly painful depending on the patient. Some patients have likened the brief stinging pain of the pulsating light to a rubber band flicking them in the face. Patients have also reported feeling like they have a mild sunburn in the treated area for several days after treatment, while others do not feel anything at all.

There’s no real recovery time to speak of. With IPL photofacials, there may be some mild side effects immediately after the procedure that can take up to a week to diminish. Nevertheless, expect to resume normal activities immediately after treatment, including applying your usual facial creams and makeup.

  • Redness – This is fairly common. It’s a sign of irritation and generally goes away after a few hours.
  • Brown spots – If you underwent the procedure to treat dark spots and are suddenly faced with darker ones, don’t fret. This is normal. The dark spots may last for up to a week but will then fade.
  • Crusting – Some of the dark spots you’ve treated will grow hard and begin to flake. This is normal and temporary.
  • Bruising – This side effect is fairly uncommon and mild when it does occur.


Remember that it will take several weeks (and several treatments) before you start seeing truly significant results.

IPL photofacials you need to be tan-free. Tans can prevent the machine from accurately detecting the specific blemishes that you want addressed, and put you at greater risk of being burned. You also need to avoid aspirin, ibuprofen, anticoagulants, alcohol, and anything else that thins the blood. Additionally, be sure to notify your doctor if you’re taking antibiotics or any supplements.
