What Is IPL?

Patients concerned about hyperpigmentation or sun damage in their complexion might be good candidates for intense pulsed light (IPL) therapy at JB Skin & Laser. A photofacial with IPL is a rejuvenating skin treatment for hyperpigmentation concerns on the neck and face. Our team sends intense pulses of light energy to stimulate natural healing and increase collagen production. Over time, you should see a healthier complexion, a more even tone, and fewer spots. Even though a photofacial is a noninvasive process, it can be very effective and can produce impressive results for your complexion. Our Barstow, CA team uses the Harmony® XL PRO laser from Alma to complete IPL photofacials and can provide a skin examination to see if this option can help you reach your skin goals.


How much does IPL cost?
Your complexion issues are unique, meaning the IPL therapy cost will depend on your individual goals. JB Skin & Laser commonly offers specials on treatments, like IPL therapy, from time to time, and we take several types of convenient payment options. During your first consultation, your technician can help estimate your treatment cost and determine the number of visits required to maximize your results.

How quick are the results from IPL?
Improvements can often be seen following your treatment with Harmony XL PRO IPL technology, but final results can be seen a month after a full series of treatments is completed. It’s normal for your skin to respond differently to every treatment session. As time passes, you will likely see a fading of redness, blotchiness, age spots, and sun spots.

What are the possible side effects of IPL?
You may notice mild, temporary side effects, like redness, swelling, blisters, crusting, or bruising. These symptoms go away 2 – 3 days following your treatment. Your skin will be extra sensitive to the sun, and you should remember that excessive exposure to damaging UV rays will impact your results. You should also wear sunscreen to help prevent skin damage, such as sun spots and redness.

Do I need to prep for IPL?
Barstow, CA patients undergoing an IPL treatment are typically asked to avoid sun exposure and self-tanners for 2 – 4 weeks before their procedure. You should stop using Retin-A/Renova, tetracycline, minocycline, and doxycycline a few days before each procedure. We may recommend avoiding anti-inflammatory medications and blood thinners for one week before the treatment to help prevent bruising. You should also protect the treated areas with sunscreen between treatments.

Why should I get multiple IPL sessions?
A full series of IPL photorejuvenation is recommended to deliver gradual, natural-looking improvements to the quality of your skin. Every treatment helps to reduce areas of hyperpigmentation and sun spots. Multiple sessions also allow for longer-lasting aesthetic outcomes.

Dr. Basa has been faithful in taking care of my special needs daughter for the last 20+ years. We always had in office visits until the Covid 19 outbreak. Dr. Basa and her staff was quick to arrange visits through Zoom.com. She and her hard working staff still have our heath concerns as a high priority. Some days the visits are quick without waiting and sometimes there is a wait, but the unhurried visit we have explains the wait time and I am thankful for the quality and the results of our visits and issues, and the other patient whom I also know. We are a small townThank you Dr. Basa, Sharon, Carol, Veronica, and Stella for the many years of care for this family. And, thank you to all the new staff, you are all highly valued, and very much needed in our life.
