Quick & Effective Photofacials in Springfield, MO

Every skin cell has a life of its own. While some cells go about their business, never putting a foot out of place, others absorb too much UV light from the sun, discoloring and grouping to form unsightly blemishes. At Bentley Skincare & Wellness in Springfield, MO, we use pulses of intense light to break up the party, restoring your complexion and more. Here’s how.


How Photofacials Work

Our skin is designed to interact with light. In appropriate amounts, light from our sun regulates vitamin production and sleep cycles. But after years of exposure, some skin cells darken and group together to form liver spots, age spots, and other unwanted blemishes. But what one kind of light causes, another may reverse. Enter: IPL photofacials at Bentley Skincare & Wellness.

Like towels at the beach, darker skin cells absorb light at different rates and intensities than lighter cells. The hyperpigmentation that occurs in individual cell groupings also makes them susceptible to powerful bursts of light (and therefore heat) energy. IPL photofacials rely on powerful, targeted bursts of energy to scatter these blemishes while leaving the surrounding tissue unharmed. Your body processes the unnatural pigments through the lymphatic system, leaving smoother skin behind—permanently.

Photofacial Results

Photofacials (also called IPL therapy) offer a permanent solution to unwanted blemishes. But they also supercharge your body’s natural production of collagen, leading to firmer, faster-healing skin throughout the treatment area.

A localized flood of collagen supports skin health and hydration, smoothing out common fine lines and wrinkles in the process, including crow’s feet, smoker’s lines, bunny lines, frown lines, and too many more to name. Schedule your consultation today to learn what IPL photofacials can do for you.

Photofacial FAQs

IPL photofacials are comfortable for the majority of patients. Some may experience minor heat-related discomfort, but for most, the procedure only gets more comfortable as they go along. If you’re concerned about discomfort, a topical solution or cooling gel may be applied to ensure the best experience.

Initial results should become apparent within a week of your last IPL photofacial appointment. More drastic and lasting results come into frame within 4-6 weeks after multiple sessions. Depending on your desires and expectations, several sessions may be recommended, but you should notice a change in blemishes and other forms of hyperpigmentation after just one session.

Yes, IPL photofacials can permanently destroy some instances of hyperpigmentation. Blemishes destroyed this way will not grow back. Additional sun damage or intense sun exposure could create new discolored spots, however, so it’s important to maintain an at-home skincare routine and protect your skin with sunscreen whenever possible.
