IPL, or Intense Pulsed Light, is a painless photo rejuvenation system that helps the skin to shed layers of blemishes, damage and aging. Facial redness, broken capillaries, rough skin, acne scarring, wrinkles and fine lines can also be combatted through the innovation of the IPL laser. Bay Area clients will experience a more radiant, youthful complexion that telegraphs good health and longevity.

What is IPL?

During treatment, damaged skin cells are exposed to therapeutic pulsed light, healing imperfections and improving skin tone and texture. The treatment is administered by one of our highly trained and credentialed aestheticians, and is customized to achieve the benefits you desire. It is ideal for treating brown spots, sun damage, freckles, discoloration, and many other complexion flaws, all without downtime or discomfort.
