Skin Conditions

Apr 17, 2017 - By Dr. Martin Kassir

IPL (Intense Pulsed Light, also known as photofacial) is light therapy, which can improve several skin conditions caused by aging, sunlight, or genetics.


Top 5 conditions treated with IPL:

  1. sun-damage
  2. rosacea
  3. enlarged pores
  4. facial blood vessels/capillaries
  5. pigmented brown spots


The face, neck, chest and hands are the most common treated areas due to higher sun exposure. There is very little to no downtime with this procedure and it is recommended to get an IPL about every 3-4 weeks depending on the condition and skin type of the patient.
