Is IPL safe?

IPL has been FDA-approved as safe and effective for over thirteen years.

How long do treatments take and does it hurt?

What areas can be treated?

The face, neck, chest, shoulders, hands and legs can all be safely treated.

What should I expect after treatment?

Immediately after treatment by a licensed esthetician, you can expect a mild sunburn-like sensation which typically resolves within a day. Any minor discomfort can be alleviated by an ice pack.

  • Sunspots/Sun Damage: The sunspots will darken after treatment and flake off the skin within 1-2 weeks.
  • Rosacea: Skin tone will have less redness within a week after treatment.
