Unveil Brighter, Younger-Looking Skin

What is IPL?

IPL, or Intense Pulsed Light, is a non-invasive skin rejuvenation treatment that uses precise light energy to target and eliminate pigment irregularities and redness. IPL light penetrates down to the second layer (dermis) of skin without harming the top layer (epidermis). This stimulates collagen and elastin fibers, which results in a visible improvement of your skin’s tone and overall appearance. Our experts have a combined 15 years of experience with this IPL platform, ensuring a safe and effective treatment experience every time. 

Turn Back the Clock on Skin Damage

What is the IPL procedure like?

Your IPL session will begin with cleansing and preparing the skin. Your Sarasota provider will then apply a cooling gel. 

 As the IPL handpiece is guided over the treatment area, you may feel a warm sensation or pinprick feeling as the light energy is delivered. The process is relatively quick, usually taking 30 minutes or less, depending on the area treated. No anesthesia is required.

Erase Sun Spots and Redness

What conditions does IPL address? 

Our Lumenis M22 IPL device treats a wide range of skin conditions:

  • Skin discoloration and blemishes due to aging & sun damage
  • Visible signs of aging, fine lines & wrinkles
  • Vascular issues like broken capillaries & rosacea
  • Sun spots, freckles, birth marks & melasma
  • Improved skin tone and appearance

Beyond Facial Rejuvenation

What areas of the body can IPL address?

IPL treatments are a great option for facial rejuvenation. However, they work just as well on other areas of the body, especially those prone to photoaging from sun exposure. IPL can be used on the neck, chest, arms, hands, or anywhere else where visible signs of aging are a concern.

Minimal Downtime and Aftercare 

IPL Recovery  

One of the major benefits of IPL is that there is no required downtime after treatment sessions. You can immediately resume normal activities. Your skin may appear slightly flushed or red for a few hours, feeling similar to a sunburn, which will resolve quickly. Following aftercare instructions, like avoiding direct sun exposure, will ensure optimal healing.
