Years of sun exposure can take a toll on your skin, particularly in the form of sun spots, redness and overall blotchiness. With an IPL Photofacial treatment, you can enjoy more evenly toned skin with fewer signs of environmental damage. IPL treatments work on a cellular level to stimulate the skin so it behaves and looks more like young skin.
IPL Photofacial FAQ
How does IPL Photofacial work? IPL targets damaged skin cells using a range of light waves that pass through the skin and are absorbed. This energy causes molecules of dark pigmentation to scatter, resulting in a lightening effect. Photorejuvenation also encourages skin cells to produce more proteins such as collagen and elastin, which help maintain the skin’s youthful properties.
What can IPL treat? Many of our patients choose IPL treatments to reduce the look of brown spots, redness, rosacea, and broken capillaries on the face, chest and hands. As an added benefit, IPL can also minimize the look of fine lines. If you’re concerned about acne scars, stretch marks, or age-related wrinkles, microneedling treatments may also be an option.
What is the difference between IPL and lasers? IPL uses light energy to restore the skin, while lasers use thermal (heat) energy.
How many treatments will I need? Your treatment provider will suggest the appropriate number of sessions based on the level of correction needed. Typically, 3 to 5 treatments provide visible results.

Brown Masking (Face/Neck)
Melasma is a very common patchy brown, tan, or blue-gray facial skin discoloration, usually seen in women in the reproductive years. It typically appears on the upper cheeks, upper lip, forehead, and chin of women 20-50 years of age. Although possible, it is uncommon in males. Most of those with melasma are women. It is thought to be primarily related to external sun exposure, external hormones like birth control pills, and internal hormonal changes as seen in pregnancy. Most people with melasma have a history of daily or intermittent sun exposure, although heat is also suspected to be an underlying factor. Melasma is most common among pregnant women, especially those of Latin and Asian descents. People with olive or darker skin, like Hispanic, Asian, and Middle Eastern individuals, have higher incidences of melasma.
