IPL Photofacial Aliso Viejo

When to consider an IPL Photofacial™

Growing up in Southern California, you and your friends spent childhood summers playing outdoors or splashing in the pool. As teenagers, you logged countless days at the beach working on the perfect tan, bronzing yourselves with a wicked abandon. Sure, you worried about the occasional baby oil burn, because blistering and peeling meant losing your deep, dark, tropical tan. You had no idea how seriously you were damaging your skin and how much you’d live to regret it!

If your once rosy glow has been replaced by premature wrinkles, brown spots, broken vessels or rosacea (redness), it’s time to talk to the skin care experts at Robinson Facial Plastic Surgery about our IPL Photofacials™, one of the safest, most effective non-surgical remedies for treating sun damage and discolored skin often associated with hormonal changes.

Commonly known as a photofacial or photorejuvenation, IPL or intense pulsed light is an advanced technology that uses laser energy to safely treat hyper-pigmentations on your face, neck, shoulders or chest. Similar to chemical peels, IPL treatments help to rebuild the layers of your skin by stimulating collagen growth and promoting better circulation, which tightens and smooths your complexion, leaving your skin toned and radiant.

A cooling gel and anesthetic cream will be applied to your skin to enhance the results and ensure your comfort during the process, which involves directing a broad spectrum of light to your problem areas. You may feel a snapping sensation on your skin as the calibrated laser seeks out red and brown spots, enlarged pores and mild acne scars, gently drawing discolored cells to the surface.

The treated skin painlessly exfoliates within a few days, making your spots disappear and revealing fresh, evenly toned skin. There’s no downtime associated with this in-office procedure, which takes only a few minutes from start to finish. Your results will be noticeable almost immediately, but depending on your skin type and the extent of your hyper-pigmentation, more than one treatment may be necessary to achieve an optimal outcome. Most of our patients require two or three IPL sessions to get their desired look.

Patient Testimonials

Dr. Robinson changed my life...

Dr. Robinson changed my life. He was recommended to me as I had never had any type of work done and he exceeded my expectations. The procedures that Dr. Robinson performed clearly took 15 years off. I am 55 and I constantly get shocked responses from people who think I am 15 years younger. The work was subtle and my experience with the surgery and the healing process was very positive. I cannot thank Dr. Robinson enough for giving me back my youth.
