Intense Pulsed Light / Photorejuvenation

Intense Pulsed Light, or IPL, is a technology used to perform various skin treatments for both therapeutic and cosmetic purposes. It is also commonly referred to as photorejuvenation or a “photofacial”. It is used to treat many causes of uneven skin tone, including: superficial facial veins, brown spots, sun damage, rosacea, and hyperpigmentation.

How it Works

IPL works by targeting pigmented molecules in the skin that cause discoloration. The old pigmented tissue is destroyed and, as the skin heals naturally, is pushed to the surface and sloughs off.

What to Expect

Get rid of age spots and sun damage with laser light treatment for sun damage and age spots. It delivers visible results quickly, and is a powerful treatment alternative to microdermabrasion and chemical peels. Treatment sessions take just minutes, so you can resume your busy life.

Pigmentation laser treatment reduces the appearance of dark spots and pigment on your face and body, including:

• age spots
• sun damage
• solar lentigines
• café au lait spots
• moles
• birthmarks
• freckles

Trust skin revitalization for:

• Visible results after just one treatment
• Simple procedure with minimal discomfort
• Quick, non-invasive treatment sessions
• Excellent treatment outcomes


Why is skin revitalization best for removing age spots and sun damage?

Skin revitalization is a non-surgical approach for treating age spots and sun damage, using powerful light-based technology to target unwanted pigment without harming surrounding skin. In just a few simple treatment sessions, pigment appears lighter and your skin looks clearer and younger. Skin revitalization is a great way to reduce the signs of aging on your hands and face.

What types of pigment can be treated?

Skin revitalization is appropriate for treating age spots, sun damage, and freckles on the face, neck, chest, arms, hands, legs, and feet.

Is it right for me?

IPL is best suited for those with mild to moderate sun damage, uneven tone, and fine lines. Those under 40, generally fall under this category. But everyone’s skin is different. Book a consultation to receive a customized skin maintenance regimen.

What kinds of results can I expect?

You can expect to see a decrease in the appearance of unwanted skin pigment for a more even skin tone.

How long does it take?

The procedure can be performed in as little as 30 minutes or less, depending on the size of the treatment area.

Does it hurt?

Most people feel minimal discomfort during skin revitalization. Your provider can discuss pain management options with you.

How many treatments will I need?

Multiple treatments may be needed; depending on the severity of your pigment, several treatments may be necessary to achieve the best results. After treatment, the pigment will temporarily darken and then will slough away to reveal your clear skin. For chronic conditions, such as rosacea, a maintenance regimen is created for continuous results.

How quickly will I recover?

Most people resume regular activities immediately following the treatment session. There is little to no down-time. Also, since it is a non-ablative, you can wear your favorite skincare and make-up soon after treatment.

Does it work?

Yes, it mainly works for hyperpigmentation, which is notoriously difficult to treat with topicals alone. It also has secondary effects which can even out skin tone, fine lines, and other generally “splotchy” areas. Once your skin fully heals, expect to have a radiant, and more even skin tone.
