What It Treats

An IPL Photofacial can treat the following skin conditions:

  • Rosacea or redness
  • Signs of sun damage
  • Brown spots (age spots)
  • Freckles
  • Mild acne scars
  • Fine lines around the eyes and mouth
  • Dark circles around the eyes
  • Uneven skin tone
  • Irregular skin texture

IPL technology can be used to treat the skin of the face, hands, and body. Your treatment will be safely tailored to meet your skin type and condition.

Treatment and Recovery

For the treatment, the IPL handpiece is gently pressed to the surface of the skin. The handpiece emits painless pulses of intense light using a customized selection of broad-spectrum light waves. Treatment lasts only about 20 minutes, and usually four to six treatment sessions are recommended. There is no downtime; you’ll be able to return to your normal daily activities shortly after treatment.


Results from an IPL Photofacial gradually become visible over time as the skin responds to the treatment. Your results will look natural, with youthful revitalization and an ever-smoother, ever-softer skin texture. After your initial treatment regimen, your results will last for up to two years. Getting even just a few treatments per year can help maintain your results long term.
