About IPL Photofacial
Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) Photofacial is a laser procedure performed in office by one of our skilled laser specialists. IPL is a treatment that stimulates the natural growth of collagen in the deepest layers of the skin. That collagen growth improves the texture of the skin, eliminates sun spots and age spots, and reduces the appearance of the wrinkles and fine lines that tend to give away our age.
