IPL, or intense pulsed light, is a multi-tasking laser treatment used for overall rejuvenation of the face as well as targeting specific issues, such as dark spots, vascular lesions, rosacea, and wrinkles.

In addition, IPL can be used to get rid of unwanted body hair, as it is effective and relatively painless due to built-in cooling technology.

An IPL photo-facial is a great way to eliminate minor skin concerns in order to showcase a patient’s natural beauty.

Your expert beauty consultants at Aesthetically Pleasing always provide superior treatments which restores our patients’ youthful and healthy skin, as well as work with them on a long-term plan to ensure an always beautiful skin.


IPL can be used to treat a wide variety of skin concerns.

Its pulsed light can target dark spots and pigment problems, allowing skin tone to become even and bright. It can also reduce vascular lesions such as broken blood vessels and port-wine stains, and can reduce the appearance of rosacea temporarily.

Fine lines and wrinkles are also softened after IPL treatments. It is a great laser for evening and brightening the complexion following sun damage and aging.

What is an IPL Photofacial Treatment Like?

IPL photofacial treatments are fairly short, generally taking around 30 to 45 minutes depending on the size of the area being treated.

IPL is a fairly gentle laser treatment that requires only minimal downtime. Patients can feel free to resume their daily activities immediately following a treatment, although their skin may be red or swollen for a few days.

This redness can be safely covered with makeup, however.

The M22 IPL module has built-in cooling technology as well as OPT, or optimal pulse technology.

OPT allows for customized, gentle treatments where the pulse shape can be controlled. The wavelengths can be controlled as well, in order to optimize treatment for specific skin concerns.

The cooling technology in addition to a cooling gel applied before treatment means that IPL photo-facials are as comfortable as possible for our patients.

At Aesthetically Pleasing we always hold our patients’ comfort and satisfaction in the highest regard, and will do our very best to achieve optimal results in the most relaxing manner.
