How can IPL treat pigmentation?
Moles, age spots, and freckles all are created from sun exposure. Our skin’s exposure to the sun causes melanin deposition, which in turn creates these marks. Typically, these spots can be found on the back of the hands, chest, or face. Our state-of-the-art IPL Photofacial expends pulses of light that target the pigment. The warmth of the light causes the pigmented cells to break up, clearing up the skin for a healthier, luminous appearance.
IPL Photofacial can also smoothen texture, treat enlarged pores and even out skin tone!
What is the IPL Photofacial treatment process like?
A member of our staff will clean the patient’s treatment site prior to the procedure.The IPL of the Photofacial is gently passed over the skin with a cooling tip to help provide comfort throughout the procedure. The size of the treatment area will depend on how long the procedure will take. Typically, an IPL Photofacial treatment can be finished in as fast as 15 minutes! Consult with our medical personnel to learn more about the IPL Photofacial process!
What parts of the body can be treated?

What should I expect following an IPL Photofacial?
The next few days following the procedure, patients may notice their treated pigmentation becoming darker. However, they usually begin to fade over the next week. Many patients may notice any redness or vessels they have experienced in the past to be augmented, as well!
