As we get older, our skin slowly begins to lose its youthful glow. Whether you’re a man or woman, we’re all looking for ways to restore our skins glow and brighten our complexion. An Intense Pulse Light (IPL) Photofacial is a laser therapy technique used to bring youthfulness back into our skin, turning back the clock on wrinkles. IPL Photofacials are often used for lightening and removing age spots, reducing redness and improving collagen stimulation.
Many of our “outdoor-loving” patients are surprised to learn that winter is the best time for them to have IPL. If you’ve been eager to fade spots, even out skin tone, and rejuvenate—now is the time to do so!

1. Helps Reduce Discoloration
Almost everyone has them – dark spots, brown spots, age spots or any discoloration caused by sun damage or acne scars. IPL is wonderful for reducing the discoloration of the skin that’s often caused by the sun’s harmful rays. If you suffer from dark spots or discoloration, talk to your dermatologist about IPL.
2. IPL Reduces Redness
For those who suffer from rosacea or any other skin condition that causes redness in the skin, IPL Photofacial laser therapy is a great solution. This non-invasive laser treatment reduces the appearance of redness and helps create a brighter, more even complexion.
3. Helps Minimize Pores
We always see in magazines and commercials the latest products that will help us minimize our pores, but do any of them actually work? By targeting the red pigmentation of your skin, your pores will shrink dramatically.
4. Fights Against Acne
IPL is commonly used to treat acne by killing acne-causing bacteria. By killing the bacteria, your skin’s overall appearance improves and reduces the redness that is linked to acne breakouts. If you suffer from acne and are always fighting severe breakouts, IPL can help.
5. Repairs Blood Vessels
Do you have tiny blood vessels that are on your face, neck or any other visible location? The Intense Pulse Light Photofacial is a great solution to help clear the skin. This treatment is also great for balancing pigmentation irregularities.
6. Minimize the Signs of Aging
This laser therapy treatment has lasting effects in helping reduce the signs of aging, such as discoloration, fine lines, and wrinkles. IPL helps stimulate collagen growth, improves texture and smoothes fine lines by treating the deeper layers of skin.
7. No/Minimal Pain
A small percentage of patients experience a slight tingling sensation during their procedure, and they will describe their first treatment as the “zingiest.” But the majority of patients experience no pain at all during the IPL treatments. If you have a low pain tolerance, your doctor can easily apply a topical anesthetic to reduce any pain.
8. It’s a Lower Cost Solution
Although this treatment may be a little more costly than microdermabrasion or chemical peels, it often costs less than other laser treatments. But it still provides wonderful long-term results.
9. It Can Treat Any Problem Area
Many patients use the IPL Photofacial to treat the face, and once they start seeing results, they start treating other problem areas. Other common problem areas are the neck, chest, and shoulders.
