What is IPL Treatment?
Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) is a technology that uses broadband light to treat dark spots and make your skin look more youthful, in a skin treatment called “photofacial.”

What is the downtime after treatment?
There is no downtime after an IPL treatment. You will experience a slight redness and warmth to the treated areas, comparative to a mild sunburn. After the treatment of dark spots, skin will turn slightly darker. After a week, the skin will clear and lighten to an even skin tone.
IPL Photofacial Treatment Procedure
The procedure is performed by our aesthetician through a Sciton laser machine that uses BBL technology. BBL utilizes the power of pulsed light as a mechanism for excellent phototherapy results. It gently heats up the upper layers of the skin, leaving it in a more natural, rejuvenated, undamaged state.
IPL is used on lighter skin for the treatment of dark spots. It is also used on all skin types for the improvement of skin texture or tone.
