IPL (Photofacial)

IPL targets hyperpigmentation and vascular conditions of the skin. When treating hyperpigmentation, the laser attracts the pigment to the surface, making any sun or age spots appear darker before the damaged skin cells naturally slough off, minimizing and lightening any hyperpigmentation and leaving a more even skin tone. IPL is also great for treating small blood vessels such as telangiectasia, diffuse redness, rosacea, acne and broken capillaries. Treatment series are recommended depending on severity of your skin's condition.

Best For: Clients with light skin and dark pigmentation

Your Questions Answered:

How often should I get an IPL treatment?

Most patients respond well to 1-2 treatments. We encourage these treatments be followed (1 one week) by a series of peels or a facial. This will help lift the damage cells and leave you will a radiant appearance.

Can I resume normal activity after the treatment?

Yes! But if you are outside you will want to wear sunscreen.

Can an IPL be done in the Summer

It is recommended to have this procedure outside of the summer months. You want to avoid sunlight post procedure. If planning a February vacation , have the procedure in early January.

Wear Sunscreen!!

Can I do an IPL if I have darker skin?

The laser is attracted to pigment. The risk of treating darker skin is a hypopigmentation or bleaching of the area treated. The LaseMD Ultra treatment is safe for all skin types! Check out that procedure on our LaseMD Ultra page.

What does it feel like?

The IPL feels 'snappy'. The nurse/aesthetician can apply numbing cream to help manage the intensity.
