Revitalize Your Skin with Light

The Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) skin rejuvenation system is a non-invasive treatment designed to revitalize skin blemishes without disrupting the skin’s surface. A broad spectrum of light is delivered onto the skin’s surface and penetrates deep into the skin tissue.
The wavelengths of light promote the production of collagen by stimulating up the collagen beneath the skin, prompting the body to produce more of the beneficial protein which targets injured tissues and dead skin cells.
Individuals who experience frustration in the following areas will highly benefit from the IPL treatment:

The IPL skin rejuvenation procedure is repeated in a series of six treatments spaced four weeks apart, with improvements usually evident after each treatment. The treatments are spread out to allow a gradual improvement of the skin, with minimal amounts of adverse effects and little to no downtime.
Throughout the IPL treatments, patients will notice a smoother and more even skin tone. The results will continue to improve long after treatment, as the IPL stimulates the natural collagen to rebuild and rejuvenate your skin.

The advanced IPL technology reaches several layers of the skin simultaneously to improve the texture, firmness, quality, color, and health of the skin on your face, neck, chest and hands!

Repair and Restore

IPL Photofacials are an FDA-cleared, safe, non-invasive, and painless way to get celebrity-style skin. Using intense pulsed light, Photofacials restore, repair, and rejuvenate your appearance. Advanced light therapy stimulates collagen and elastin production, reducing fine lines and wrinkles.
Laser light energy safely passes through the tissue into the deepest layers of the skin. Improve sun damage, decrease redness, and restore a more even tone and texture. Diminish age spots, freckles, and small facial veins, reverse sun damage, and improve other skin blemishes or impurities. IPL Photofacials are the easiest way to achieve a more radiant, beautiful complexion with no downtime.
Skin Rejuvenation IPL



An IPL (intense pulsed light) photofacial is a versatile treatment that can improve a range of skin conditions. The first IPL device was FDA approved in 1995, to treat dilated blood vessels called telangiectasia (aka spider veins). In the decades since, IPL photofacial treatments have expanded in scope to address vascular lesions, pigmented lesions, and even unwanted hair.

Today, dermatologists frequently use it for photorejuvenation, to decrease brown spots from sun damage, improve skin texture, as well as to minimize broken capillaries and redness, including rosacea. And it can help treat redness from acne and acne scars.

Though not its main indication, an IPL photofacial treatment can also stimulate collagen production and improve signs of aging, like fine lines and wrinkles.

During your initial visit, your provider will make sure you’re a good candidate for intense pulsed light therapy. They may even perform a spot test beforehand, and they’ll give you instructions on what items to avoid for up to two weeks before your first IPL appointment. These could include waxing, tanning or sun exposure, peels, and topical creams that contain retinol or glycolic acid.

When it’s time for your treatment, your skin will be cleansed and an ultrasound gel applied. This cool gel serves several purposes: it helps protect the skin, allows the laser to smoothly glide over the skin, and reduces reflection of the IPL waves from the skin, making the treatment more efficient. Both you and your provider will wear protective eyewear.

The handpiece of the IPL device will be held and moved against your skin, and the light pulses will be emitted with the trigger of a button.

Some people describe the sensation as the snapping of rubber bands, though Dr. Klein cautions that the experience can be more intense. “It can feel very hot and painful, unless a topical anesthetic is used,” she says.

The length of treatment depends on the size of the area, but it typically lasts 20 to 30 minutes. After the treatment area has been covered, the gel is removed and sunscreen may be applied.

You’ll be able to apply moisturizer and makeup immediately after the treatment.

There’s little to no downtime after an IPL photofacial, but your skin will still go through a healing process that takes about a week. Your skin may be red and swollen for a few hours or the rest of the day, but you should be able to go back to your regular activities or work, using ice packs or a cool washcloth on the treated area if you need to ease the discomfort.

Consider skipping exercise for a couple of days to prevent swelling, which can slow healing.

Within a week post-treatment, pigmented spots will appear to rise to the surface of your skin before falling off a few days to a week later, according to Dr. Klein. The brown, freckled areas can look like little coffee grounds or pepper flakes.

Your skin may feel sunburned and hypersensitive for a couple days following, so treat it gently until you’re completely healed.

Use mild skincare products: Steer clear of scrubs and other abrasive products and instead use gentle cleansers and moisturizers.

Skin will be more vulnerable to sun damage after an IPL treatment, so avoid sun exposure and use a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or greater on the treatment area at all times.

An IPL treatment plan is typically slow and steady, using a series of treatment sessions to achieve full results.

Patients often see some improvement in redness within two weeks of their first session, but it may take three to four treatments to see significant results, particularly for more severe dark spots.

An IPL facial can make your skin look better, but it can’t stop future aging. IPL can be very effective, but the results are not permanent.

To maintain the benefits, you’ll likely need follow-up sessions on a regular basis.

Every person and skin type is different, so consult with a provider with extensive experience in IPL, who can give you a better idea at how often you’ll need treatment—and who can ensure the most successful results.

In general, when performed by an experienced provider on the right candidate, IPL is extremely safe and well tolerated. However, there are some real complications that can occur if people are not cautious and stay conservative with treatment parameters.

These can include bruising, blistering, a change in skin color, increased melasma, or even infection.

To avoid complications, make sure the person performing your treatment has a strong track record of happy patients with good results—and that your skin isn’t tanned before your treatment.

As mentioned above, IPL treatments are not suitable for everyone: it works better on light skin tones.


“I love Soma! They’ve really helped my skin to look it’s best, and whether it’s been hydrafacials, IPL, or Botox, I’ve had only great experiences with Dr. Moran and her estheticians.
