Photo Facial (IPL)

Cosmetic Club Banner for Center for Dermatology

The aging process and environmental elements take a toll on the skin. Many people seek ways to restore a more youthful appearance through either cosmetics or professional treatments. A popular rejuvenating treatment at U.S. Dermatology Partners Plano, formerly Center for Dermatology and Cosmetic Laser Surgery, is Photorejuvenation, a highly versatile, cost-effective treatment for various skin types and conditions.

Photorejuvenation is a process accomplished with IPL laser technology. This form of treatment is similar to laser, but uses multiple wavelengths of energy. IPL stands for Intense Pulsed Light, a breakthrough in the treatment of benign skin issues affecting the face, neck, chest, and hands. Treatable conditions include:

  • Birthmarks
  • Sun spots
  • Rosacea
  • Small veins
  • Broken capillaries


Photorejuvenation can greatly improve the appearance of skin on the face, neck, and hands, and it can be intensified through the addition of medication such as Levulan® Kerastick®. This form of skin rejuvenation is non-invasive, comfortable, and effective, with treatment customized to each patient. Through a series of treatments scheduled three to four weeks apart, skin becomes fresh and revitalized.

What to expect

Our patients from Dallas, Plano, Arlington, Louisville, and surrounding areas visit our dermatology practice for personalized care, which can be provided with IPL treatment. This therapy is relatively comfortable, feeling somewhat like snapping a rubber band against the skin. Every patient is different in terms of tolerance. Your comfort is our priority. Topical anesthetic is provided when needed.

After an IPL Photo Facial, your skin may look flushed, as though you just came out of the sun. Existing brown spots and capillaries might look more pronounced, as well. Aside from these mild, temporary effects, your skin will look normal. Most people immediately return to work or other daily activities.

Photorejuvenation is intended to produce long-lasting results with more beautiful skin that gradually improves with subsequent treatments. To promote your healthiest skin, we encourage you to maintain excellent sun protection following your photorejuvenation sessions in our state-of-the-art facility.

U.S. Dermatology Partners, formerly Center for Dermatology and Cosmetic Laser Surgery, can help you feel great in your own skin. Contact us in Plano, McKinney, or Flower Mound for your appointment.
