Our IPL (intense pulsed light) photofacial, combined with radio frequency energy, targets discoloration in the skin, including veins, age spots, sun damage, and uneven skin tone. The high energy light waves also induce natural collagen production, rejuvenating the skin and reducing visible signs of aging.
The light waves kill bacteria under the skin that creates acne, leading to fewer breakouts. At the same time, they even the skin’s tone. target spider veins, and kill bacteria beneath the skin.

This treatment utilizes an elōs Plus handpiece made by Candela Medical, which combines pulsed light and radiofrequency energies to deliver comfortable treatments.
The elōs Plus device is the only system to provide unique, three-layered skin protection. The benefits of this technology are:
Deeper penetration of heat
Active Dermal Monitoring (ADM) immediately signaling skin impedance changes
Sapphire contact cooling, improving client comfort
Who is an ideal candidate for IPL Photofacial?
This treatment targets a variety of skin conditions. Client’s who are skin types 1 – 4 on the Fitzpatrick scale are eligible for this treatment. The client must not be on antibiotics or other medication that causes sensitivity to light. They also must not have been in prolonged exposure to the sun within two weeks before the appointment to avoid burning the skin. We recommend daily wearing sunscreen of SPF 50 or higher.
What to expect after an IPL Photofacial?
Results may vary depending on the aggression and target of the treatment. Freckles will begin to flake off in a process described as “peppering.” The client should see noticeable improvements in tone and texture. They may also notice collagen stimulation plumping the skin and decreasing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
