Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) Treatment

Intense Pulsed Light or “IPL” is a non-invasive cosmetic procedure that uses broad-band light to rejuvenate the skin. It is most frequently used to remove brown and red spots as well as improve broken capillaries and facial flushing common in Rosacea. Patients experience a more even complexion and skin tone which results in a younger appearance.

We treat the face, neck, and chest most commonly, but IPL can be used anywhere on the body, and patients especially love results on the back of the hands. Downtime is limited to redness, similar to a sunburn, for 1-2 days and sun sensitivity for up to one week. Brown spots will appear darker before they fade or flake off. Patient’s can wear make-up as desired.
