Intense Pulsed Light technology (IPL) is a treatment breakthrough that can correct a variety of benign skin conditions, such as facial skin imperfections, signs of photo-aging, birthmarks, unwanted hair, unsightly small veins, and other blemishes.
It offers a safe, non-invasive solution that can be tailored to your individual condition & skin type, providing superior cosmetic results & outstanding satisfaction, through a process called photorejuvenation. You may also hear IPL treatment commonly referred to as “photofacial”. Red spots from broken blood vessels and brown spots of pigment from sun damage respond most favorably to Intense Pulsed Light. After a series of IPL treatments you will see a significant reduction in unwanted pigmentation.
Here at Pacific Plastic Surgery Group, IPL treatments take about 20-45 minutes (depending on the area) & are administered by either a Physician Assistant or Registered Nurse. The treatment requires little to no downtime and you can resume your normal daily activities immediately after treatment. Treatments are generally administered in a series of 4-6 sessions to provide excellent long-term results & high satisfaction. The most common areas treated are face, neck, chest and back of the hands as these areas tend to show the most noticeable signs of photo-aging.
