IPL SKIN REJUVENATION (PHOTO-FACIAL) WITH OPT (75 min $250) Book Now

Cumulative sun damage can begin to surface in our mid to late 20’s and beyond. Sun exposure in early childhood often results in uneven skin tone, aging us beyond fine lines and wrinkles. Has the damage been done? Not yet.

IPL Skin Rejuvenation (Photo-facial) with OPT is a non-invasive yet effective anti-aging solution that promotes younger, healthier, and glowing skin. Harnessing the spectrum of light, it delivers impressive and lasting results to manage a broad range of aging signs. This light therapy aids in the reduction of a variety of benign conditions including: age spots, sun-induced freckles, symptoms of rosacea, birthmarks, unsightly veins, acne scarring, and other blemishes. It also helps minimize fine lines, mild wrinkles, and enlarged pores, thus restoring youth and vibrancy to the skin.

All IPL with OPT treatments finish with applications of: skin-specific serums, replenishing gel, calming balm, hydrators, and broad spectrum SPF.

How does it work?
Broad spectrum pulsed light targets sun damage, environmental damage, and aging skin by coagulating blood vessels, eliminating pigmented spots, stimulating collagen/elastin, and regenerating healthy skin cells. It also minimizes redness from broken capillaries and rosacea. You will notice a visible reduction in pore sizes, fine lines, and mild wrinkles, resulting in an overall healthier complexion. In addition to your face, it can be successfully used to rejuvenate the skin on your neck, back, décolleté, arms, and hands.

What does the procedure feel like?
IPL is most often described as relaxing and therapeutic. You will experience a gentle warming of your skin’s surface and a brief, pinprick sensation during the procedure as the IPL handpiece is moved back and forth about an inch above your skin. You can expect to return to normal daily activities with the use of sunscreen for any outdoor activities almost immediately.

How many treatments will I need?
In general, a series of 4 to 6 treatments scheduled at 4-week intervals is sufficient to address most skin concerns.

Is there any downtime after the treatments?
There is minimal downtime associated with these treatments. Slight redness and mild sensitivity are common, but usually disappear within a few hours after the treatment.

Acne Grades


Grade I


Grade II


Grade III

Grade IV

Grade I is considered acne simplex, and may include open or closed comedones. Inflammatory lesions and cysts are not typically seen. Scarring is unlikely in acne simplex as the lesions tend to be superficial; however, patient excoriation may lead to hyperpigmentation or texture changes.


Grade II is also considered acne simplex, and will include the open or closed comedones seen in Grade I, as well as papules and pustules. Cystic lesions and scarring are uncommon.


Grade III is a form of acne vulgaris, where inflammation and bacterial lesions are typical. Open and closed comedones may also be seen, and scarring will be more likely than with the lower acne grades. Medical prescription intervention may be necessary.


Grade IV sufferers experience deeper cystic and nodular lesions, as well as papules, pustules, and comedones. Scarring is very common due to the depth of the lesions. Medical prescription intervention may be necessary.
