Learn more about Intense Pulsed Light (IPL)

Intense pulses of light are used to penetrate deep into the skin. IPL photorejuvenation then causes collagen and blood vessels below the epidermis to constrict, reducing redness and age lines.

  • Who should get it?

    People who have blotchy, sun-damaged, or discolored skin, or whose skin is affected by large pores, freckles, or wrinkles, may benefit from an IPL photofacial. The procedure is also quick and involves no downtime, making it a convenient option for people with busy schedules.

  • Is there downtime?

    For most patients there is no downtime, and regular activities can be resumed after the procedure. Your dermatologist will instruct you on post-treatment care, such as avoiding directly sunlight to optimize healing.

  • How many treatments will I need?

    For optimal results, most patients usually receive between 2-4 treatments depending on the severity of their skin type and condition.

  • Are there any risks?

    Treatment is generally safe and effective, but complications can occur such as hyperpigmentation.

    People with tanned or naturally dark skin sometimes experience changes in skin pigmentation; African-Americans and people of Greek and Italian descent, for example, may wish to discuss possible side effects with a dermatologist before opting for this procedure.

    Additionally, people who are taking Accutane® should not have this procedure until at least six months after they stop using the drug. Pregnant women should also postpone treatment until after they give birth.
