Light Therapy for a Smooth, Glowing Complexion
Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) Photofacial is a minimally invasive therapy that uses high-intensity broadband light to rejuvenate skin. IPL helps reduce the appearance of a range of skin issues that deplete self-confidence like blotchiness, uneven skin tone, facial redness, pigmented spots and sun damage. Rosacea and tiny spider veins that develop on the nose and cheekbones are excellent targets for Photofacial treatments.
What is Intense Pulsed Light?
IPL works much like a laser, however, it uses a much broader light spectrum than just one specific frequency. Simply put, IPL is short flashes of very bright light that penetrate the skin at different depths. A powerful, advanced technology, Intense Pulsed Light applies the precision and effectiveness of a group of lasers in a single treatment.
IPL Photo Facial lessens the appearance of
- Sun Damage
- Uneven Skin Texture
- Broken Capillaries
- Brown Spots

- Sun-Induced Freckles on the Hands, Chest & Face

What happens after the treatment?
IPL helps remove age spots, sun-induced freckles, uneven complexion and broken capillaries. The result? Younger-looking skin.
Immediately following treatment, brown spots start to darken, your skin may appear slightly red and the treated area may be mildly swollen. This typically lasts only a few hours (possibly a day or longer). Makeup can be applied to cover the redness.
IPL Photofacial is a non-ablative treatment, which means it does not wear away or damage skin like a chemical peel or dermabrasion. The gentleness of the treatment allows you to get back to normal life right away. Improvement is subtle and spread over a series of treatments so you can gracefully achieve your desired complexion.
When will I see results?
Within one to three weeks, the darkened spots flake off and fade. Diffuse redness or telangiectasia decreases, leaving a fresh, smooth complexion.
How many treatments will I need?
Three to six treatments are typically required to achieve desired results. Additional treatments may be recommended, especially for excessively sun-damaged skin.
