Uncover a Smoother Complexion with a Photofacial

Sometimes, loving your skin means finding a solution to redness, age spots, and pigmentation beyond your daily makeup routine.

A photofacial with intense pulsed light (IPL) therapy may be just the solution you’re looking for.

How Does Intense Pulsed Light Therapy Work?

At In Focus Eyecare we use Cynosure, the safest and most advanced IPL technology on the market. 

3 or more treatments are recommended depending on client needs

Although down time is fairly minimal, most patients can assume to see mild symptoms of the healing phase of up to 10-14 days following the procedure. 

all clients are encouraged to wear sunscreen and reachout when needed. 

We don’t use numbing cream.


Typically, a mild numbing gel will be applied to your face at the start of your procedure to keep you more comfortable. While IPL is not characterized as painful, some patients describe the sensation of IPL like the snap of small rubber bands.

After the procedure, you may look and feel as if you have a bit of a sunburn, so we advise patients to take the rest of the day off from work or book their appointment outside of their working hours.

The effects of an IPL photofacial are gradual, and depend on how your skin reacts to treatment, so you shouldn’t expect to see immediate results. Generally, patients begin to see changes within a week to 10 days, with results lasting 1-4 years.

Most patients receive 2-5 treatments per area, done about 3 weeks apart, but the exact number will depend on each individual person and the area being treated.

For the best results, it’s important to properly care for your skin by using the skin care products recommended during the consultation, wearing daily mineral sunscreen and living a healthy lifestyle.

It is a great option for all ages. Although it helps in treating some of the unwanted signs of aging. it is not limited to age. As many young patients may be unsatisfied with the effects of sun exposure or suffer from rosacea or Dry eye. It is a fantastic option for anyone wanting to even the completion of one’s skin. It is recommended the the ideal candidate not have a tan or been in the sun for a minimum of 4 weeks

A Patient who is tanned or in using self tanner will have to wait for treatment until the pigment has reduced or been fully removed. In some cases one’s skin may have a higher melanin index. In such cases the procedure will not be able to be performed. During in room consultation the  Technician will advise if the treatment will be beneficial to the patient.

IPL is also not recommended for anyone currently taking accutane or experiencing a moderate to severe acne breakout. Once the majority of acne has cleared IPL may be performed.
