At Marcus Medical Spa, we are proud to offer our clients IPL Photofacial – an advanced, noninvasive procedure used to address virtually any superficial skin imperfection, including sun damage, rosacea, acne, hyperpigmentation and more.

What is IPL Photofacial?

Intense Pulsed Light, or IPL, is a gentle skin rejuvenation procedure that transforms red, blotchy and sun damaged skin into a youthful and glowing complexion. Using high energy light waves, IPL penetrates into the deepest layers of the skin, causing collagen and blood vessels to constrict. In this way, the procedure reduces skin discoloration and facial lines, as well as stimulates the body’s production of collagen – a natural component that creates smooth and wrinkle-free skin.

At Marcus Medical Spa, we routinely use IPL Photofacial to treat:

  • Sun-damaged skin
  • Rosacea
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Brown and red spots
  • Large pores
  • Hyperpigmentation


The results of your IPL Photofacial will be largely dependent on the areas you had treated. With that said, following your procedure you can expect to see a dramatic improvement in the cosmetic imperfections that concerned you most, including sunspots, age spots, redness, rosacea and blotchy skin. In addition, your skin will possess a smooth and healthy glow that ensures you look as young and vibrant as you feel.

What to Expect During the Procedure

Immediately prior to beginning your IPL Photofacial, you will be given protective eyewear to guard your eyes from the bright flashes of light associated with the procedure. We will then apply a cool gel to the treatment area to protect your healthy skin cells and ensure your comfort. From there, we will administer brief pulses of light using the specialized IPL handpiece, giving your skin the energy it needs to look its best.

As IPL Photofacial is considered to be a very comfortable procedure, it is typically performed without an anesthetic. Depending on the size of the area being treated, your procedure will take anywhere from twenty minutes to an hour, and most of our clients require between three and five treatments to achieve their ideal results.

In most cases, the recovery period following IPL Photofacial is extremely short, as very little damage is done to the surface of the skin. Most clients only report very minor redness that subsides gradually over time. In order to protect your skin and ensure an ideal outcome, you will be advised to stay out of the sun for several days and to wear plenty of sunblock in the following weeks.

Am I a Good Candidate for IPL Photofacial?

At Marcus Medical Spa, we’re committed to personalized care, and we only administer treatments if it’s truly in the client’s best interest. As such, we determine candidacy for all of our procedures on an individual basis, following a thorough discussion of your cosmetic goals, concerns and desires. However, in general, individuals are considered to be ideal candidates for this procedure if they have white, untanned skin, good elasticity, and wish to address skin imperfections that IPL Photofacial can effectively correct, such as enlarged pores, fine lines, rosacea, blotchy skin, skin discolorations and skin texture issues.

IPL Photofacial is not recommended for individuals who suffer from deep wrinkles or severe acne scars, as these issues tend to respond best to a more aggressive procedure. In addition, IPL is not typically effective on individuals with naturally dark or tan skin, as the procedure may contribute to changes in the client’s skin pigmentation.

Please note that while these guidelines can provide you with an idea of who can benefit from this procedure, the only way to know if you are a candidate for among the best IPL Photofacial Manhattan Beach has available is to schedule a consultation today.
