Your IPL Treatment

Dr. Bonakdar uses an advanced IPL system called Lumenis M22 to treat skin pigmentation irregularities.* This sophisticated technology offers a superior combination of strength, versatility, and precision that allows Dr. Bonakdar to customize your treatment for optimal results.*

This treatment is safe and effective for almost all areas of the body, including the face, neck, chest, back, hands, arms, and legs.* During the procedure, broad-spectrum light energy is absorbed by the pigmented components of the skin.* After just 1 treatment, you will notice an improvement in age spots, sun spots, melasma, rosacea, and broken capillaries.*

Knowing What to Expect

A topical numbing cream is applied to the skin to minimize discomfort.* During treatment, cool ultrasound gel and a special air cooler keep the skin from getting too hot as pulses of light are delivered to the epidermis.*

This process typically takes about 20 minutes, depending on the size of the area being treated.* Generally, there is no downtime with IPL.* Most clients are able to wear mineral makeup to camouflage any discoloration and can return to their usual activities right away.*

During the course of several days, the pigmented area will become darker and then slough off with washing.* For best results, a series of 3 to 5 treatment sessions spaced 2 to 3 weeks apart is typically recommended.* After the desired improvement has been achieved, maintenance treatments are usually performed quarterly or yearly.*
