The celebrity secret to even, glowing, skin!

This light-based treatment targets sun damage and small surface veins to reveal a brighter and more youthful complexion.

A Photo Facial is an intense pulsed light treatment that effectively treats men and women to remove brown spots and sun damage from your face, chest, arms, hands, and back. Uneven skin tone and signs of sun damage can be reversed in as little as 1-2 treatments, leaving you with youthful, even-toned skin.

What is Intense Pulsed Light?

IPL stands for intense pulsed light. It is a light-based treatment used to diminish the appearance of brown spots, freckles, birthmarks, redness, and rosacea. IPL is most effective on white (untanned) skin with blotchy, sun-damaged, or discolored areas.

How Intense Pulsed Light Works

A broad spectrum of light is transmitted with the IPL handpiece.

The light penetrates the tissue and is absorbed by either the blood when treating vascular lesions or the melanin when treating pigment. The body will naturally remove the treated tissue giving the skin an evener tone and texture, and a more youthful appearance.

Candidates for Intense Pulsed Light Treatment

People with naturally dark or tanned skin are not good candidates for IPL as there is a risk of hyper or hypo pigmenting the treatment area. Pregnant women and those on Accutane are also not candidates for IPL treatments.
