What is IPL?
When you are bothered by how your complexion looks because of sun damage or dark spots, Hidden Oasis Med Spa can offer you a skin analysis at our San Antonio, TX office to determine if you could benefit from IPL (intense pulsed light) therapy. An IPL photofacial with the Venus Versa™ is a treatment that rejuvenates the skin for adults with hyperpigmentation concerns on their neck and face. IPL may not be an invasive procedure, but it can be highly effective and create impressive outcomes. Intense pulses of light energy are delivered to the face, neck, chest, or desired areas to target sun damage. In time, you should begin to see a healthier layer with a more even tone and decreased spots. IPL treatment is recommended for anyone who wishes to diminish the appearance of freckles, sun spots, or hyperpigmentation on their face, and it's an ideal treatment for men and women who want to refresh their overall complexion. Our IPL procedure is also part of our TriBella™ facial rejuvenation treatment, which features the advanced, versatile technologies of the Venus Versa™ and Venus Viva™ to perform a three-in-one therapy of IPL photofacial, skin tightening, and skin resurfacing treatments. Schedule a consultation at our San Antonio, TX office to learn more about this extraordinary treatment.
What Are the Benefits of an IPL Photofacial?
IPL photofacials are known at Hidden Oasis Med Spa for their restorative benefits. Some of the benefits that our San Antonio, TX individuals glean from their IPL photofacials include:
- Restored skin tone and feel
- Balancing of pigment and age spots
- Revitalized, rejuvenated skin appearance
- Calming, spa-like treatment that supports your total skin health
What to Expect From IPL
The Venus Versa system is powered by cutting-edge technology designed for dermal rejuvenation. The heat that is delivered to the treatment area is safely absorbed by the skin without harming the surrounding tissue. IPL is performed inside our San Antonio, TX office in about 20 – 30 minutes in one of our treatment rooms if performed alone. In addition, the device utilizes a real-time cooling system to protect the skin from thermal damage. Treatments usually take about 20 – 30 minutes per target area, and once complete, clients are free to return to their usual routine with no recovery period associated with a photofacial. You may leave your appointment with your complexion a little inflamed and red. This will subside on its own in about a day — it can be concealed with makeup if you want.
Hidden Oasis Med Spa suggests clients keep an ointment on the treated skin to minimize any irritation and speed healing. Over the next 2 – 5 days, the irregularities under the skin will come to the surface and then begin to flake off. It's crucial to protect your skin from the sun as often as possible after a photofacial and to not pick at the flaking skin. While you should see some visible improvements after your first session, your skin will attain the best results after multiple IPL photofacial sessions. Our team suggests approximately 3 – 6 treatments done monthly at Hidden Oasis Med Spa.

How much does IPL cost?
Your complexion issues are unique, so your cost for IPL treatments will be dependent on your unique concerns. Hidden Oasis Med Spa offers special deals sometimes and we take several payment methods. In your initial visit, your technician can estimate costs and recommend the number of treatments needed for optimal results.
How quick are the results from IPL?
Some results can usually be seen after each treatment, but final results develop a month after a full series of treatments is completed. It is normal for clients to respond differently to each treatment. Blotchiness and redness will fade as well as age, brown, and sun spots.
What are the possible side effects of IPL?
Most clients experience mild side effects like temporary redness, swelling, blisters, crusting, or bruising. These subside within a day or two after the procedure. You will be extra sensitive to the sun and excessive damaging UV rays can negatively affect your results. We also recommend using sunscreen to avoid issues like spots and redness.
Do I need to prep for IPL?
Before getting IPL, clients are usually asked to avoid self-tanners and excessive sun for about 2 – 4 weeks prior to the treatment. You may be asked to discontinue the use of certain medications and topical creams, like Retin-A, several days before your appointment, and you may want to start taking pain relievers for a week before your appointment to decrease your risk of bruising. You should also protect the treated areas with sunscreen.
Why should I get multiple IPL sessions?
A full series of IPL photo rejuvenation is recommended to deliver gradual, natural-looking improvements to the appearance of your skin. Each treatment helps to reduce surface irregularities and spots. A series of treatments also allow for longer-lasting improvements.
