IPL Photofacial & LED Light Therapy in Beverly Hills, CA
What is Light Therapy Treatment?
IPL PhotoFacial Treatment
How Do IPL PhotoFacials Work?
IPL PhotoFacials deliver targeted, high-intensity light pulses that penetrate deep into your skin to heat the sub-surface layers.
After a thorough consultation with Dr. Lee, and review of your individual needs, our practitioner will apply a cooling gel to the surface of your face that both protects your healthy skin cells and provides total comfort during your procedure. Using a specialized handheld instrument, the practitioner gently delivers the light pulses to the treatment area. During treatment, our specialist optimizes the wavelength to make IPL capable of two processes at once — both breaking up unwanted melanin and shrinking small broken blood vessels with every pulse, your skin receives a surge of new energy, helping it to look and feel its best, while also plumping the underlying collagen layer.
IPL PhotoFacials can take from 30 to 60 minutes. There is no downtime after the procedure, and patients are free to resume normal activities. In the weeks after treatment, the now-fragmented melanin particles will be eliminated by your body’s own absorption system.
What Does IPL PhotoFacials Treat?

How Do IPL PhotoFacials Differ From Laser Skin Resurfacing?
IPL PhotoFacials and laser skin resurfacing are both designed to rejuvenate the face’s deeper skin, but the procedures differ in a few key ways. PhotoFacials are non-invasive, require no downtime, and provide an effective way to minimize enlarged pores, light wrinkles, and moderate sun damage.
Laser Skin Resurfacing is a semi-invasive procedure, requiring some downtime and providing an effective solution to more serious skin problems such as deep wrinkles, serious sun damage, and severe acne scarring.
