Let me start by saying I am thrilled that I found Skin Perfect Brothers. I’ve been coming here regularly for a few years and they’ve been right there to help me with the inevitable signs of age that are now appearing at age 40. During my visit Joseph suggested IPL for my freckles/aging spots I had all over my chest. I decided to get it done. Which was the best decision I could have made. I am so happy with the results so far it’s amazing. Naomi H. |La Verne, CA

Intense Pulsed Light (IPL), also known as Photo Genesis, Photo Facial or Photorejuvenation, is basically an incredible new skin-rejuvenation treatment. IPL works by emitting light which penetrates the superficial layers of the skin altogether. This further rids you of various skin discolorations.
IPL is a great way to quickly, safely, and comfortably improve your skin’s texture, tone and color without the use of gel or topical anesthetics. IPL is exceptionally effective at removing brown pigmented lesions such as age spots, sun spots, and freckles as well as diffusing redness such as rosacea. It can be used on your face, chest, arms, and hands, leaving clearer, younger looking skin.

While most sunspots will respond to IPL, some are additionally deeper within the skin and require lasers such as the Spectra Green Laser.

This is due to the 532 nm wavelength which does not penetrate beyond the full thickness of the eyelid’s skin.
