IPL stands for Intense Pulsed Light. The device uses a non-ablative laser to deliver high-intensity pulses of light. It is carefully calibrated to detect specific skin pigments and then penetrates deep into your skin to correct the problem at its source. While this treatment is most commonly used on the face; your hands, neck and chest can also be treated with IPL Photofacial – the most common areas where sun-damage is most apparent.
Zero to mild pain and discomfort is experienced during the treatment. A topical numbing agent may also be used if you’d like. The sensation you will experience is best described as rubber bands snapping lightly against your skin or slight pinching as is common with the vast majority of laser treatments. With each small snap you feel you know the IPL Photofacial has delivered correction to the area.
A typical IPL Photofacial treatment session lasts 20 minutes from start to finish. This will vary from person to person and will also depend upon the area being treated and the extent of the correction required.
Multiple treatments are typically required (3 – 6) but it’s worth it as the improvements continue to manifest in the weeks following the procedure. Treatments are spaced 4 – 8 weeks a part.
Sometimes called a lunchtime procedure, you can expect little to no recovery time after your treatment. Immediately after an IPL Photofacial treatment you will be fully able to resume your normal activities.
The most common side effect post treatment is redness at the treatment site. It resolves quickly but can also be covered by foundation, powder or concealer if you desire. Some people experience mild swelling at the treatment site which calms after just a couple of hours.
If you are currently taking Accutane you do not qualify for this treatment, you must wait until you have been off Accutane for 6 months. Individuals who are tanned or have naturally dark skin may experience changes in skin pigmentation post-treatment. Please contact us to discuss the possible side effects. Pregnant women should postpone this treatment until after their delivery.

“My lashes have gotten thinner and more sparse. That’s why I asked my optometrist about LATISSE®, hoping that it would help my lashes grow.Now that my lashes are longer and darker, I’m doing more to draw attention to my eyes; I cut my hair shorter and I’m even wearing my contacts more just to show them off.” - CINDY
“Being a blonde, I’ve always had light brown lashes with some blonde ones mixed in, which, as you can imagine, just disappeared on my face. They didn’t even show up in photographs! But since I have been using LATISSE®, my lashes are noticeably darker than my previous shade, which is fantastic! Without a doubt, I have become a believer in LATISSE®!” - JENNY
“I have been seeing Cassie for over 2 years once a month! I had acne scars and a terrible complexion. I now can go out comfortably without feeling like I need to wear all the makeup!
