Intense Pulsed Light (IPL)



How Does Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) Work?

Intense Pulsed Light (IPL), sometimes called Fotofacial™ or Photofacial, is a light treatment that is similar to laser treatment, although technically it is not a laser. A series of pulses of light energy is delivered to the skin during a treatment session. By adjusting the treatment settings, IPL can be customized to address different skin problems making the treatments very versatile.

At The Face and Body Place, we use the Palomar Starlux™ 500. The Starlux™ is one of the most powerful and versatile IPL machines available. This means results may be seen in fewer sessions than with older IPL technologies. The Palomar Smooth Pulse™ Technology makes this powerful treatment much more comfortable and effective than older devices.
