The Power of IPL Therapy/ Photofacial
Intense pulsed light (IPL) therapy, aka photofacial, offers the best in natural beauty tech. IT is one of the most effective ways to improve your skin’s color and texture naturally. It can undo some of the visible damage caused by photoaging (aka sun exposure). These dark spots generally appear most on the face, neck, hands, or chest.
IPL may also help if you have red, brown, or splotchy skin because of a health condition.
How IPL Skin Pigmentation/Dark Spot Treatment Works
IPL uses light energy to target a certain color in your skin. A broad-spectrum light is applied in a series of gentle pulses over the skin. When the skin is heated, your body gets rid of the unwanted cells, and that gets rid of the thing you’re being treated for.
Unlike regular lasers, an IPL device sends out more than one wavelength of pulsating light. It can treat a range of skin conditions at the same time.
IPL’s pulsing light penetrates through the skin and breaks up the pigment in the skin. The brown spots heat up, turn darker, and then flake off in a few days, leaving a beautiful, flawless complexion.
This process generally requires 4-6 treatments to completely eliminate all brown spots and rejuvenate and revitalize the skin.
After IPL, you may look younger because your skin tone is more even. And since the light doesn’t hurt other tissues, you can get better quickly.

How to Prepare for an IPL Pigmentation Treatment
IPL can be more effective when you prepare for it. Before the procedure, make sure you don’t:
Take aspirin or another drug that can make you bleed more
Wear perfume, makeup, deodorant, or any skin irritants
Tan in the sun, with tanning creams, or in a tanning bed, for 4 weeks before you go
Wax, or get a chemical peel or collagen shots for 2 weeks before
Take any medication that will make you sun-sensitive; like the antibiotic doxycycline.
What an IPL Pigmentation/Dark Spot Treatment Session is Like
One of our skilled IPL specialists will get you started by rubbing gel on your clean skin. You’ll wear dark glasses to protect your eyes. The handheld IPL device will go right on your body. The session will be between 20-40 minutes long.
Most of our clients are comfortable with the light pulses, but the treatment could sting a little. It might feel like someone is snapping a rubber band on you. You may opt for a numbing cream to put on 30-60 minutes before treatment starts.
