What is IPL?

If you have dark spots or sun damage on your face, Van Dyke Yun Dermatology can perform a skin examination at our Studio City, CA office to see if you qualify for IPL (intense pulsed light) therapy. An IPL photofacial is a treatment that rejuvenates the skin of men and women who have hyperpigmentation problems on their face and neck. IPL is not an invasive process, but it is highly effective and produces wonderful outcomes. Board-certified dermatologists Dr. Greg Van Dyke and Dr. Jasmine Yun use the Alma Harmony XL PRO, which passes over intense wavelengths of light energy that heat the skin just enough to ignite the natural healing process and increase collagen production. Over time, our Los Angeles and San Fernando Valley, CA patients should begin to see a healthier layer with a more even tone and fewer spots of pigmentation.

What is the IPL Treatment Procedure?

A photofacial works deep within the layers of your skin to correct complexion problems, like sun damage, brown spots (hyperpigmentation), rough texture, visible pores, redness, melasma, sun and age spots, and more. Performed inside our Studio City, CA office, one of our team members will begin your treatment process by cleaning the area to be treated. From there, we will cover your eyes with goggles and will perform your 20 – 30-minute IPL treatment using the Alma Harmony XL PRO, which we will pass over your skin while emitting pulses of light energy.

You can leave right after your appointment and get back to daily life, however, you will likely be a little red and swollen for a few hours. Van Dyke Yun Dermatology recommends you apply a cream on the skin or take anti-inflammatory medication to decrease any irritation and swelling, and speed healing. After 2 – 5 days, the blemishes that rested under your skin will come to the surface and start to flake away. It's crucial to keep your skin protected with sunscreen as often as possible after a photofacial treatment and to not pick at your skin. While you should have some visible improvements after your first treatment, your skin will attain ideal results with multiple IPL sessions — typically 3 – 6 treatments done on a monthly basis.
