What is IPL treatment?

Men and women who are concerned about the look of sun damage or dark spots on their skin can be good candidates for intense pulsed light (IPL) therapy at Brentwood Skin Clinic. An IPL photofacial is a rejuvenating treatment for hyperpigmentation problems on the neck, face and hands. Intense pulses of light are used to (get rid of brown and red spots) and boost collagen production. In time, you should see a healthier complexion, an improved tone, and fewer dark spots. Even though IPL is a noninvasive process, it can be very effective and can create amazing results for your complexion. Our team at Brentwood Skin Clinic employs Dye-VL with the Harmony XL PRO technology from Alma Lasers to carry out IPL skin treatments and can provide a skin analysis to see if this solution can help renew your skin.

IPL Treatment FAQ

How much does IPL cost?
Your complexion issues are unique, which means your cost for a photofacial will depend on your personal concerns. Brentwood Skin Clinic periodically offers specials on treatments, like IPL therapy, and we take a range of payment methods. At your first visit, your skin consultant can help estimate your treatment pricing and recommend the number of appointments needed to maximize your results.

How quick are the results from IPL?
Some skin improvements can be noticed after each treatment with Harmony XL PRO IPL technology, but optimal results are most commonly noticeable about one month after a full series of treatments is completed. It’s normal to have varying results after each treatment session.

What are the possible side effects of IPL?
Most women and men notice minor side effects, such as temporary redness, swelling, blisters, bruising, or crusting, which should naturally subside within a day or two after the procedure. You will be extra sensitive to the sun, and excessive sun exposure will negatively impact your results. You should also wear sunscreen to protect your skin and help prevent skin issues, such as redness.

Do I need to prep for IPL?
To prepare for IPL therapy, patients are asked to avoid sun exposure and self-tanners for 2 – 4 weeks prior to the procedure. You may be asked to discontinue the use of certain medications and topical creams, like Retin-A™, several days before each procedure, and we may recommend that you avoid taking ibuprofen, aspirin, or other blood thinners 5 – 7 days before your treatment to decrease your risk of developing bruises. You should also protect the treated areas with sunscreen since your skin will be extra sensitive.

Why should I get multiple IPL sessions?
Multiple IPL treatments with Harmony XL PRO are recommended to produce natural-looking enhancements in the quality of your skin. Each session helps to fade spots and other surface irregularities. A series of sessions also allow for longer-lasting aesthetic results.

Am I a good candidate for IPL treatment?

A photofacial reaches the deeper layers of your skin to improve many complexion problems (particularly brown lesions and sun spots) with minimal or no recovery time. Candidates for IPL at Brentwood Skin Clinic will have many problems with their skin, such as rosacea, sun damage, hyperpigmentation (brown spots), rough texture, visible pores, redness, freckles, age and sun spots, or spider veins. Dr. Austin Mitchell will examine your complexion to determine if you will benefit from IPL during your initial consultation.

What Are the Benefits of IPL?

An IPL treatment uses light to reduce the look of several skin conditions related to hyperpigmentation, including, but not limited to:

  • Age spots (also called liver or brown spots)
  • Sun spots
  • Acne scars
  • Rosacea
  • Spider veins and other visible blood vessels

IPL treatments using Harmony XL PRO technology generally take about 20 – 30 minutes per session. While many patients elect to treat damaged or discolored skin on or around the face, IPL therapy can be used on other parts of the body. In the time following treatments, individuals should see a healthier layer of skin with a more even tone and fewer spots of pigmentation.

Dr. Mitchell and his staff are INCREDIBLE!! 2 weeks ago, I started getting a rash on my upper body that began spreading. I went to 2 other doctors who misdiagnosed me and had me do expensive and ineffective treatments. I then broke out in hives on top of the other rash that was still spreading. I called Brentwood Skin Clinic and due to a cancellation, they got me in that same day! Dr. Mitchell was able to tell me what was actually going on, gave me the treatment to cure it, and laid out the steps we would take if this first treatment didn’t work for some reason. He took the time to answer all my questions, and I had a LOT. I could tell that Dr. Mitchell and his staff really genuinely care about the well-being of their patients. I have already recommended him to one of my coworkers, and would recommend him to anyone else who needs to see a good dermatologist!

I sent in on the patient portal an appointment request, the next day Dr. Mitchell called me asking about the problem. He explained what he was planning on doing and got the appointment set up.My wife & I have been a patient for about a year now and very grateful for locating such an amazing Dermatologist & staff. I'd highly recommend Brentwood Skin to anyone looking for a doctor who really cares for your best care then Dr. Mitchell and his staff is the one to call.
