Intense Pulsed Light Therapy

Rediscover Your Vibrant Self.

Every day, our skin battles against sun damage and aging, which can lead to a multitude of skin imperfections that dim our glow and confidence. Our solution? The IPL Photofacial. It’s not merely a treatment but a promise to address and combat your daily skin challenges.

What is an IPL Photofacial?

IPL photofacial, also known as intense pulsed light (IPL) therapy, is a non-invasive skin treatment that uses light energy to improve the appearance of the skin. It can be used to treat a variety of skin concerns, including:
  • sunspots and age spots
  • rosacea and redness
  • freckles
  • fine lines and wrinkles
  • large pores
  • and other pigment-related concerns.

How Does IPL Photofacial Work?

IPL Photofacial utilizes bursts of light energy that penetrate deep into the skin. These light pulses target pigment-producing cells, breaking down melanin and promoting collagen growth. This dual action not only reduces visible imperfections but also stimulates the skin’s natural rejuvenation process by producing new collagen.

 The surrounding tissues remain unaffected, as the light energy is specifically calibrated to target the melanin and hemoglobin responsible for pigment irregularities and redness.

IPL Photofacial Downtime & What to Expect


The treatment area will be cleansed, and protective glasses will be provided to shield your eyes from the bright flashes of the IPL device.


Our trained technician will glide the IPL device over your skin, delivering light pulses to the targeted areas. You might feel a slight sting, akin to a rubber band snap. Each session typically lasts 30-60 minutes, based on the area’s size and the specific concerns addressed.

Post-Treatment Care:

Expect mild redness or swelling, akin to a sunburn, which will subside within a day or two. It’s essential to avoid direct sunlight and apply sunscreen diligently post-treatment.

Is IPL Photofacial Right for Me?

If you’re looking to address sun damage, skin pigmentation, redness, uneven skin tone, dull complexion, or early signs of aging, IPL Photofacial is your go-to treatment. It’s safe and effective for all skin types and tones.

Recovery Time and Results

Some changes, like reduced redness, might be immediate. However, the best results unveil themselves over the course of several weeks, revealing a clearer, brighter, and more even complexion. Multiple sessions might be required for optimal outcomes, with the number of treatments varying based on individual skin concerns and goals.

This treatment has minimal to no downtime so you can go back to your regular routine immediately post-treatment.
