intense pulsed light (ipl)

Intense Pulsed Light treatments use visible light to reduce or eliminate the appearance of redness, chronic flushing & sun damage.

ntense Pulsed Light treatments are a non-invasive, effective treatment that use visible light to reduce or eliminate redness, chronic flushing, and sun damage. This non-ablative resurfacing technique stimulates the production of collagen while helping to lift and tighten the skin. Skin can be restored to its youthful appearance and the overall texture will be improved. With consistent IPL treatments you can experience an improvement in: rosacea, facial veins, sun spots, age spots, acne scars, and dull complexions.

Wouldn’t it be nice if our skin was always picture perfect? Sadly, there are a ton of factors that make this dream difficult to achieve. Now, with the advancements of technology you can treat facial imperfections comfortably and effectively. Photo rejuvenation or Intense Pulsed Light treatments use visible light that reduce or eliminate redness, chronic flushing and sun damage. 


What to expect


Your technician will cleanse your skin prior to treatment. A hand piece will be place against the skin and the light will be pulsed onto treatment areas.

What to expect


After treatment, there will be a slight redness to the skin which will subside within in a few hours. Makeup can be applied immediately after your treatment and regular activity can resume. We recommend refraining from exercising for up to 24 hours.


How does it work?

IPL technology uses an intense light that is emitted in a series of gentle pulses over the treatment area. Unlike a conventional laser, IPL emits light energy over multiple wavelengths allowing the light to penetrate all the levels of the skin where abnormally dilated vessels and irregular pigmentation can be found, stimulating collagen production.

Am I good candidate?

We recommend coming in for a complimentary consultation to determine if you are a good candidate for an IPL treatment. Some factors that may prevent you from having an IPL treatment include: sun exposure, acne medications, and skin type.
