How Does an IPL® Photofacial Work?

High-energy light treatments work by using specific wavelengths that are absorbed by the targeted tissues in the skin. The energy is not absorbed by dissimilar tissues. The tissue that does absorb the energy is slowly warmed, and this change in temperature damages the tissue.

What Should I Expect from an IPL® Photofacial?

A device is used to administer the light energy. You may experience a mild warming sensation during the procedure. You may experience some swelling and reddening of the skin which should subside within a few days.

How Much Does an IPL® Photofacial Cost in Monroe, LA?

The best results from an IPL® treatment stem from utilizing the technology based upon a personalized plan that considers the patient’s skin type, cosmetic concerns, and other factors. Dr. Hopkins, along with your input,  personally develops such a plan during your appointment.  You will be informed of all areas involving this treatment plan, including costs, prior to treatments.
