Brown Spots, Intense Pulse Light (IPL)

Intense Pulse Light (IPL) is an innovative treatment that uses intense pulse light to quickly, safely and comfortably improve the quality, pigmentation and texture of the skin. IPL is used to treat sun spots and age spots on the face, neck, chest, shoulders, arms, hands and legs. Our IPL treatments are fast and comfortable and there is no down time. Typically three to four treatments are required. Additional treatments maybe needed for large or very dark spots, densely freckled areas or skin with excessive sun damage. Immediately following treatments the spots will appear darker. Over the course of the next 1-3 weeks the spots will flake off and your complexion will clear. IPL treatments offer dramatic results without down time. We also offer from our professional skin care line Lightening prescription, a cream that contains prescription ingredients to keep the skin free of brown spots. Using this product will enhance the results of IPL treatment and will also perpetuate the changes. Dr. Porras will advise you on the number of treatments and medical skin products you require
