Intense pulsed light (IPL), aka photofacial, produces quick results with minimal to no downtime. IPL is unique as compared to lasers in its ability to simultaneously treat freckles, sun spots, redness, spider veins, and pore size. Other conditions IPL can improve include rosacea, red scars, and tan scars. Patients typically require 3-5 treatments at monthly intervals followed once every 6-12 months to help preserve their results. The most common areas we treat include the face, neck, chest, hands, arms, and lower legs. At The Pearl Dermatology we use the Lumenis M22 IPL for its added safety, comfort, and its ability to treat patients with fair to olive skin tones.
