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.
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.
IPL can be used to treat not only the face, but the hands and neck as well, revitalizing the skin by rolling back the clock on the aging process. The treatment tends to work best for those with fair skin, but our technology is constantly improving and evolving, and our aestheticians can create personalized regimens for your complexion no matter what skin tone your have. Call us today to schedule your private Bay Area consultation and find out if IPL is the perfect match for your skincare goals.
After IPL, your skin may look and feel like you acquired a mild sunburn, but these symptoms usually last only a few hours or a day at most. You will be able to return to your normal routine right after your appointment, and makeup can be worn once you leave our offices.
Sunscreen should be used generously to help protect your beautiful results. Our team may suggest more than one IPL treatment to achieve comprehensive improvement, and these follow up visits can be scheduled over the course of several months.
Costs for IPL vary, as each patient receives a customized approach with the number of treatments determined by an in-depth physical evaluation during your Palo Alto consultation at Total Glow. We will present you with a detailed quote at the time of your visit.

“I found Total Glow on Yelp, and I took the plunge to try out a new treatment. I have never, ever had an experience THIS good. Ever. Ever, ever. I took one look at my face, and immediately became a monthly member. My boyfriend (who never notices when I get anything done to my face) legit said, "Oh, woah, you look 5 years younger. What did you do?" I highly, highly recommend Total Glow. I'm now going to get a facial monthly.” – E.J.
