Is IPL treatment painful?

IPL is non-invasive procedure that is nearly painless. Additionally, there is no recovery time.

How much does IPL therapy cost?

IPL is a very cost effective treatment. Cost depends on the specific area treated, and the number of treatments necessary to remove or effectively depreciate the targeted area. Most doctors give free estimates.

What can IPL therapy treat?

• age spots
• freckles
• rosacea
• birthmarks
• acne scars

• tattoos
• port wine stains
• superficial wrinkles
• skin pigmentation

...and many other congenital or acquired conditions caused by aging, excessive sun-exposure, hormonal therapy, and more.

How does IPL therapy work?

As the name implies, IPL treatment works with light. Light travels through the skin, and when it encounters something considerably darker than the rest of the skin, such as a birthmark or old tattoo, the light converts to energy and effectively "evaporates" the imperfection - while leaving the normal skin alone.
