What Is IPL?
If you deal with dark spots, melasma, or other signs of aging from being in the sun, Skin Care By Design can perform a skin exam to see if you're a good candidate for intense pulsed light (IPL) therapy. Also known as a photofacial, IPL is a rejuvenating skin treatment that uses pulsating flashes of light to treat UV damage on the skin (photoaging). Using cutting-edge Harmony XL PRO technology, the IPL treatment warms the skin cells just enough to promote the natural collagen production process. Afterward, you should see a healthier, more even-toned complexion with less hyperpigmentation. Contact our office in Oro Valley, AZ to set up an appointment with our team of aesthetic professionals.
How Does IPL Work?
IPL is completed at our Oro Valley, AZ office in about 20 – 30 minutes in a private treatment room. To prepare for the process, your technician will clean and dry the skin to be treated before protecting your eyes with special shields. The IPL photofacial is performed using a handheld wand that passes over the skin while emitting light energy pulses. Patients might experience some slight discomfort during the treatment, but most people say it is quick and tolerable. You will probably have mild side effects, like temporary swelling, redness, crusting, blisters, or bruising. However, these effects should go away about a day or two after the procedure. Visible improvements can often be seen after one IPL therapy session, but the best results are apparent about one month after a full series of treatments is completed.
Treat Sun Damage And More
Spending lots of time in the Arizona sun can eventually lead to complexion problems, like premature skin aging and sun spots. However, IPL can create dramatic improvements to your skin health after just a few treatments.

Skin Care By Design Aesthetic Spa Reviews
I’ve been there four times and have nothing but great to report! The atmosphere is lovely and peaceful. I’ve tried microdermabrasion, two IPL treatments and most recently, a mini-peel. The mini-peel was fantastic and my face has never felt so smooth! I’ve had appointments with three different people and they’ve all been fantastic. They also run specials from time to time and have a rewards program too. I can’t wait to go back!
