Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) Photofacial
Intense pulsed light (IPL) Photofacial is a laser light treatment that targets pigment issues, such as dark or brown spots, age spots, and red spots, to name a few. The bright light passes through the epidermis, drawing out the dark spots and dispersing the uneven red pigment.
For best results, 3-5 treatments are typically recommended, about four weeks apart.
