IPL / Photofacial

IPL, also known as intense-pulsed light is a skin rejuvenation treatment that selectively removes dark lesions and age spots with precise pulses of light.

People with different forms of skin discoloration can often benefit from treatment with IPL. Those with fair skin are the best candidates. IPL is typically used to treat the following skin conditions:

  • Uneven skin tone

  • Port wine stains

  • Broken capillaries

  • Vascular birthmarks

  • Red or brown pigmentation/discoloration

How IPL Works

The IPL photofacial treatment selectively damages underlying blood vessels and melanin, prompting your body’s healing response to gradually remove discoloration. Clearance of the pigment and vessels provides clearer and more attractive skin.

IPL Treatment takes requires 30 minutes. Pulses of light are applied in a uniform pattern on your skin. We often recommend a series of IPL treatments for best results.

What to Expect After Your IPL Treatment

You should be able to return to your normal routine right away. You might exhibit some mild redness, but makeup can help conceal it. The use of sunscreen is essential to minimize the risk of skin damage and hyperpigmentation.
