IPL Photofacial

Serenity MedSpa offers the Intense Pulse Light (IPL) photofacial skin rejuvenation to effectively treat brown spots, rosacea, broken capillaries and sun damage.

What can IPL photofacial skin rejuvenation treat?

iplClear, beautiful skin can be yours in just a few treatments. Our doctors can effectively lighten brown spots, reduce redness, improve rosacea, even out texture and brighten skin tone with IPL.

How does IPL photofacial work?

Serenity MedSpa uses the revolutionary elos (electro-optical synergy) technology by Syneron. Proven to give the most effective, safest and comfortable skin rejuvenating results, this technology uses a unique combination of Bi-Polar Radio Frequency and Broad Spectrum Pulsed Light energies to treat the targeted area while leaving the surrounding skin free from potentially harmful side effects.

Is there any downtime with the IPL photofacial treatment?

There is minimal if any downtime associated with the IPL photofacial treatment. Any associated redness should resolve quickly. Some brown spots will get temporarily darker and fall off revealing lighter more even skin tone within one week. You can apply makeup right away and resume normal activity.

How many IPL treatments do I need?

After just one treatment you will notice the redness and capillaries improve and any freckles or brown spots get lighter. For optimal results for most patients we recommend a series of three to five treatments spaced three to four weeks apart.

At Serenity MedSpa, our goal is to make our patients as comfortable as possible during the short 10-minute treatment. We use topical numbing cream to numb the area 30 minutes before the treatment as well as the Zimmer Cooling Device to cool down the skin during the treatment.
