    IPL Photofacial

    IPL PhotoFacial Laser Skin Service


    IPL photo facial, also known as Intense Pulse Light Therapy or BBL (BroadBand Light Therapy), is an effective photofacial treatment designed to restore damaged skin and return a youthful radiance to the face, chest, neck, and hands. IPL is great for treating a variety of skin conditions, and improving the appearance of:

    • Broken capillaries
    • Redness from rosacea
    • Age spots
    • Sun spots
    • Freckles
    • Brown spots
    • Birth marks
    • Port wine stains
    • Seborrheic keratoses
    • Fine lines and wrinkles
    • Pore size

    IPL photofacial treatment uses gentle cosmetic laser technology that smooths and balances overall skin texture, resulting in firmer skin with improved tone and resilience. IPL delivers photothermal energy that heats the upper layer of the skin, stimulating skin cells in these areas to produce new collagen. This process can rejuvenate the skin, and transform a discolored or blotchy complexion into a more vibrant condition. IPL photo facial can also eliminate the redness that accompanies broken capillaries by reducing melanin in the skin, which causes red pigmentation.

    IPL procedures are fast, safe, and involve little-to-no downtime—often allowing a patient to return to daily activities within hours. IPL is non-invasive and non-surgical, with no skin removal during treatment unlike other laser techniques. All of these factors contribute to easy recovery and low-risk side effects associated with IPL.

    Having a photo facial procedure is an important decision that will have lasting effects on your overall appearance and sense of well-being. As such, you need to feel comfortable with the plastic surgeon and his or her affiliated staff to yield the most successful results. A good rule of thumb is to ask yourself a few questions when meeting with a plastic surgeon for the first time. These can include: is the front staff friendly and inviting? Is the office warm, yet clean and professional? When meeting with the surgeon, does he or she answer your questions clearly? Have plenty of before and after IPL photos available for you?

    At Ranch and Coast Plastic Surgery, Dr. Paul Chasan and both his surgical and administrative staff can answer a resounding Yes to all of these questions. Since 2011, our office has been designed to provide the finest aspects in plastic surgery with utmost skill, professionalism, and unparalleled competency. Our beautiful facility is located in the coastal town of Del Mar; two blocks from the ocean and 2 miles from the freeway. We offer convenience and the highest quality of cosmetic surgery to patients who live locally, and patients who visit us from across the nation.
