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

"been going here for 2(almost 3) years. their services are no joke, they wont lie to you. they wont do extra services if they dont believe in them, even if it would make them more money. if you think you need one service, they will scan u and show u in real time why u dont need that cause something else is the root cause and what youre seeing is the leaves of a deep root. they undid 10 years of hormonal acne damage to my face. i dont have the dark spots or the chunks of missing skin from those hard, painful pimples that i used to have and its because of these genius, gorgeous women in this med spa that have made my skin feel timeless and look the part without any injection ever, just deep facials.. i respect the hell out of this place and will always come back as long as i live here in miami. julie is a favorite cause she is so incredibly knowledgable of everything and tells what you would benefit the most from. the front desk girls are so well informed as well. Dr Dozier helped me figure out skin problems ive had for over a decade and solved it all in 1 derma visit. She is brilliant and she listens, she found a skin fungus that i never noticed. i saw a huge skin improvement after going on meds of getting rid of that fungus. do i really need to go on? this place is amazing, just come in."- T.R. / Yelp / May 22, 2021
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.
