Intense pulsed light therapy (IPL) gives our patients the ability to treat a wide range of common skin concerns. We offer BBL™ (BroadBand Light) technology from Sciton to create excellent phototherapy results. This treatment can be an ideal way to address skin aging and sun exposure by encouraging new collagen growth, eliminating fine blood vessels that cause redness, and removing melanin that causes dark spots and pigmented lesions.

About the Treatment
Photofacials create their rejuvenating effects over a series of treatment appointments. Most people will need 4 to 6 IPL treatments each spaced a few weeks apart to fully address their skin concerns. Each treatment takes about 20 to 30 minutes. We can apply a topical cream to numb your skin before the treatment to maximize your comfort. We also apply a cooling gel to protect the skin and protective eyewear if necessary. During treatment, the smooth surface of the Sciton BBL Laser handpiece is glided over the skin, delivering light in precise pulses.
Within weeks, your treated skin should begin to feel smoother, with fine wrinkles and pores that are less noticeable and sun spots or uneven pigmentation that is lighter in tone. Results following IPL treatment will depend on factors such as your skin concern and the area being treated. Most of our patients have very little downtime following their appointment, with only some temporary redness or slight swelling. The goal of the treatment is to create a rejuvenated and refreshed skin tone that is smoother and more even.
