What is it: Also known as fotofacial or photo facial, this treatment uses Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) technology to penetrate deep into the skin, targeting problem areas and rejuvenating the skin. IPL Photofacials are effective for a variety of concerns, including sun damage, fine lines and wrinkles, age spots, rosacea, freckles, large pores, and more.

Our expert providers guide the Icon laser over the treatment area sending targeted pulses of light at unwanted pigment and vessels within your skin. The light delivered causes them to slowly disappear through your body’s natural healing process.

You should expect to see a decrease in the appearance of brown spots and vessels for a more even skin tone. You will see some improvement immediately followed by continued improvement over time.

The Icon™ is considered the leading aesthetic technology platform available on the market, and offers multiple devices in one machine to provide a comprehensive suite of the most popular treatments, ranging from hair removal to wrinkle reduction to scar and stretch mark treatment.

The technology behind the Icon laser system is FDA approved and combines a fractional laser (ablative) and intense pulsed light (IPL) technology. It also boasts a state of the art Skintel Melanin Reader to detect a patients’ melanin density to accurately diagnose skin tone, ensuring the appropriate level of laser is applied.

In addition, only Icon offers the ability to perform the ThreeForMe™ Laser Treatment – the proven way to solve wrinkles, sun damage and facial veins all at the same time. This FDA approved technology requires fewer treatments and delivers more immediate results than comparable machines, it is also one of the safest lasers on the market.

What to Expect: During your treatment, we will use a handheld device to deliver pulses of light into the skin. You may feel a slight snapping sensation as the light is absorbed, but overall the treatment is comfortable with virtually no downtime. The entire treatment takes about 30 minutes. You will see results after just one treatment, with optimal results typically achieved after a series of treatments.

How We Measure Your Results: We use a Visia® digital skin analysis to track your progress. This non-invasive device uses sensors to measure different aspects of your skin, including wrinkles, pore size, pigmentation, redness, and UV damage. The results are then displayed on a computer screen, so we can see how your skin is changing over time. The Visia® digital skin analysis is an important part of our commitment to providing you with the best possible care. With this information, we can tailor our treatments to your specific needs and ensure that you are getting the most benefit from our services.

Cost: IPL photofacial treatments can range in cost from $250 to $500, depending on the size of the area being treated and the overall severity of the problem. In general, larger areas or more severe conditions will require more treatments and, as a result, will be more costly. However, many people find that the results of an IPL photofacial are well worth the investment. In addition to improving the appearance of sun damage, wrinkles, and fine lines, an IPL photofacial can also help to promote collagen production and even out skin tone.

Side Effects: IPL Photofacial is safe for most people. The side effects are usually mild and go away on their own within a few days. The most common side effects are redness, swelling, and bruising. These usually improve within a few hours after the treatment. More rare side effects include blistering, changes in skin color, and burns. IPL Photofacial is safe for most people, but it is important to talk to a qualified medical provider before starting this treatment.
