What is IPL?
If you struggle with how your skin looks because of dark spots or sun damage, Brickell Cosmetic Center can offer you a skin consultation at our Miami, FL office to determine if you qualify for intense pulsed light therapy (IPL). An IPL photofacial is a treatment that rejuvenates the skin for adult men and women with hyperpigmentation problems on their neck and face. A photofacial may be a noninvasive procedure, but it can be highly effective and produce impressive results. Dr. Lauren Dozier uses intense wavelengths of light energy that raise the temperature of the skin just enough to set off the natural regeneration process and increase the production of collagen. As the added nutrients take effect, you should see a healthier layer with an improved tone and fewer dark spots.

"I’m thrilled to have found this MedSpa. No need to look elsewhere, BCC is everything that you are looking for. Thus far, I have had a hydrafacial and Botox (both for the first time). My experience was fantastic for both procedures. Dr. Dozier assisted in starting me off with the appropriate amount of Botox to achieve my beauty goals. She was very knowledgeable and took my unique skin into consideration when choosing the right plan for me. I felt comfortable and confident in her and am so happy with the results (and this is just the beginning!). I will definitely be coming back and continue to enhance my natural beauty. Thank you Dr. Dozier and staff! You’ll be seeing a lot more of me in the near future."- K.R. / Google / Nov 11, 2020

How Does IPL Work?
An IPL photofacial can be completed at our office in about 20 – 30 minutes in our minor procedures room. To start the treatment, the technician will wash and dry your skin before covering your eyes with special shields. The IPL photofacial is performed using a handheld device that will pass over the skin while emitting pulses of light energy. While most patients may feel mild discomfort during the IPL photofacial, it is usually tolerable for the fast treatment time.
There is no recovery time needed with an IPL photofacial. You will leave your appointment with your complexion a little red and swollen. This will go away on its own in several hours — it may be concealed with cosmetics if you prefer. While you will have some improvements after the first session, your complexion will attain ideal results with several IPL treatments. Dr. Dozier recommends most patients get 3 – 6 treatments performed every four weeks.
Does IPL hurt?
Brickell Cosmetic Center takes every precaution to ensure our patients are as comfortable as possible during IPL treatments. While the majority of our patients report no discomfort at all, some have said that they felt a slight warmth or tingling sensation. However, most say that the short sessions are well worth any minor discomfort.
What about over-the-counter creams?
Some drugstore products promise to reduce dark spots and other issues, but they don’t always live up to the hype. Creams or serums may contain harsh chemicals or produce ineffective results. Dr. Dozier and our team recommend IPL treatments performed by a professional for the safest and most long-lasting outcomes. We’ll be happy to discuss all of your options during a consultation.
