IPL also known as Intense Pulsed Light uses a broad spectrum of light to reverse pigmentation caused by the sun and aging. This method passes through the epidermis to draw out the pigment producing cells (melanin) which are removed by the body’s lymphatic system. IPL is a versatile modality that can be used on the face, neck, chest, shoulders, arms, and legs. A series of 3-5 treatments is recommended for ultimate results.
How long does the procedure take?
Depending on the area, average time of treatment is 30 minutes.
What to expect after an IPL treatment?
The treated area will feel like a mild sunburn and may be slightly pink and swollen post procedure. Age spots, freckles and sunspots will get darker after treatment and flake off in 3-10 days leaving fresh new skin.

What is a PicoFacial?
PicoFacial provides a gentler treatment for patients wanting to achieve a more youthful appearance or treat trouble-spots through high energy laser pulses that breakdown unwanted pigment. Large spot treatment allows for deeper penetration to the skin, essentially shattering pigment without damaging the treated area or requiring any downtime post-treatment.
Hyperpigmentation is a common skin concern that involves an overproduction of skin pigment, resulting in dark patches. This includes sunspots, age spots, and melasma. Hyperpigmentation usually occurs on the face and other sun-exposed areas. The PiQo4 laser can target these areas to remove the outer, damaged skin cells and promote the growth of new ones for a more even skin tone.
Along with improving abnormal pigment, the PiQo4 laser can also be used for overall skin rejuvenation. The laser energy stimulates new collagen growth within the skin to promote the growth of stronger, healthier skin. The new skin will be smoother, younger looking, and more radiant.
