IPL Photofacial

The Viora IPLPhotofacial uses short blasts of multiple high-intensity light pulses of various wavelengths called intense pulse light (IPL) to tackle skin pigment concerns from age spots to sun damage and red spots and rosacea. The heat generated from the light energy (pulse) destroys the hyperactive melanin producing cells in the layers of your skin, eventually dispersing pigmented areas. The pigment within the spots is pulled to the skin surface, eventually turning into a coffee-ground like texture that will flake off leaving beautiful, radiant skin beneath. The results are younger-looking skin that’s firmer and more even intone and texture. With little to no downtime, you’ll wonder why you haven’t tried our Viora IPL photofacial earlier once you experience the magic of anti-aging, skin rejuvenation, and sun damage reversal.

  • *For melasma or moderate to severe hyperpigmentation concerns, a regimen of melanocyte inhibiting product(s) may be required for 4-6 weeks prior to a Viora IPL to prevent a worsening of condition. IPL Photofacial treatment can be done monthly until treatment goals are met and then every 4-6 months as needed for maintenance. Sun protection and skin care maintenance are essential to the longevity of your results.
  • Did you know Viora IPL can also be used to rejuvenate the skin on the body too... like hands, arms, back, décolleté and more? Call us for a skin consultation and we’ll develop a treatment plan tailored to your skin and treatment goals.


Intense Pulse Light (IPL)

Intense pulse light or IPL is a laser treatment that is used to treat skin conditions and remove signs of photoaging like uneven texture, spots, and wrinkles. As one of the most popular non-invasive treatment options out there, it’s no wonder that more and more patients keep coming back for more.

How Many IPL Treatments Will I Need?

Depending on your skin type and your concerns, we usually recommend that patients undergo a series of five treatments that are spaced about four weeks apart. In some instances, we may recommend some additional sessions but we will go over all of that in detail during your initial consultation.

How Long Does Each Session Take?

On average, each session takes about 20-30 minutes but that can vary from patient to patient.

Is IPL Right For Me?

The best way for you to determine whether or not IPL is right for you is by scheduling a consultation with our office. During your consultation we will go over your skin concerns and discuss the different treatment options that you have available to you including IPL.

Does IPL Work On All Skin Types?

Lighter skinned people who don’t use self-tanning products or who do not have a history of excessive tanning respond better to IPL than other patients. However, we will be able to give you a more definitive answer during your consultation.

How Does IPL Work?

IPL works in a similar way that laser works. But how? Like with laser, IPL uses energy that is absorbed into the targeted cells in the skin that have pigmentation. Specifically, when the light energy comes in contact with the skin, it turns into heat energy which causes damage to specific areas of the skin like sun spots or age spots. Once these areas are heated up, the skin responds by creating newer healthier skin in the process.

What Can IPL Treat?

One of the many unique benefits of IPL is that it can be used to treat a variety of different skin concerns including:

  • Rosacea
  • Facial flushing
  • Red chests and necks
  • Brown spots
  • Sun damage
  • Enlarged pores
  • Spider veins

What Is Recovery Like?

Typically, patients can go right back to their normal activities including wearing makeup and exercising. We do, however, encourage patients to avoid any sun exposure because it may cause unwanted pigmentation.

Are There Side Effects of IPL?

Usually there are no side effects of IPL but some patients may appear to have a sunburn for a few hours after treatment. Other rare side effects of IPL include blistering, unwanted changes in pigmentation, scarring, swelling, and infection.

Is IPL Expensive

Depending on the provider that you end up going with, it will determine how expensive it is going to be. Overall, IPL is more affordable than other treatments.
