IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) therapy, or "photofacial", is a way to improve the color and texture of your skin without surgery. It can undo some of the visible damage caused by sun exposure called photoaging. You may notice it mostly on your face, neck, hands or chest. IPL may also help if you have red, brown or splotchy skin because of a health condition.
IPL uses light energy to target a certain color in your skin and treat acne, birthmarks, liver (age) spots, broken blood vessels, dark spots from hormonal changes, discolored skin, freckles, redness from rosacea and spider veins.
