Photofacial Orange County

IPL, short for Intense Pulsed Light, is a form of laser treatment using a broad spectrum of carefully modulated light that targets a variety of skin ailments. IPL can treat:

  • Facial veins (telangiectasia)
  • Rosacea
  • Irregular pigmentation
  • Sun spots

This treatment is sometimes referred to as a “photofacial.” The laser light works beneath your skin to stimulate the formation of collagen, an important protein present in all our body’s connective tissue. New collagen means new, healthy skin, with a visible reduction in fine lines and wrinkles. Sun damage often leaves your skin with spots of irregular pigment. Fortunately, IPL can target those areas and affect full pigmentation removal.

IPL Treatment

The treatment is quick and comfortable. Our office uses the highly effective Palomar ICON Laser to administer the treatment. Simply lie back in a comfortable position while the doctor runs the handpiece over the targeted areas. Since IPL involves an intense, bright light, you will be provided with protective eyewear. It’s just like tanning on the beach, but with a laser light that restores and repairs your skin. Patients generally return for 3-4 treatment sessions spaced several weeks apart. You’ll soon see a noticeable difference in the quality and vitality of your skin.

Call Not Just Faces Medical to schedule your consultation. Say goodbye to sunspots with IPL.
