Skin Treatments

What is an IPL photofacial?

An intense pulsed light (IPL) photofacial is a form of light therapy that can improve the appearance of your skin. In addition to reducing fine lines and wrinkles, an IPL photofacial is also an effective treatment for:

  • Age spots
  • Sun damage
  • Freckles
  • Spider veins
  • Birthmarks
  • Rosacea
  • Areas of uneven skin texture and tone


The process works by directing pulses of concentrated wavelengths of light to your skin, where the deeper layers absorb that light and convert it into heat. The heat blasts apart pigment concentrations, facilitating your body’s ability to process and eliminate the excess pigment. 

What types of facials are available?

The team at Plastic Surgery Specialists of Boca Raton offers numerous medical-grade facials that can achieve a wide range of skin improvements. Each option is carefully constructed to address specific skin issues, and can be further customized as needed. 

A hydrating facial can boost your skin’s moisture levels and nourish your skin cells via a series of hydrating products and facial massage. A brightening facial uses a chemical exfoliant to remove the outermost layers of dead skin before incorporating products that boost radiance and correct uneven skin tone. 

An anti-aging facial is a great way to lessen the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and give you a more youthful glow. Collagen and elastin production is enhanced to yield lasting results. A calming facial is a great option for those with inflamed or red skin due to rosacea or environmental irritants. 

There are even facials designed to treat acne, address men’s skin care needs, or treat the skin on your back. You can add dermaplaning to any facial for an additional fee. This manual exfoliation technique uses a sterile scalpel to remove the outer layer of your skin and the fine hairs on your face. 

How do I know which facial is right for me?

The first step in any facial appointment is a thorough skin assessment and a discussion of your treatment goals. That information allows your practitioner to create a facial experience tailored to your unique set of needs.

If you’re uncertain a facial is something you’d enjoy, or if you have limited time, a mini facial is well worth consideration. This 30-minute treatment covers the bases of cleansing, moisturizing, and facial massage and is a light, refreshing experience. On the other hand, for those who love facials and are looking for a more in-depth experience, the 90-minute signature facial is a great treatment and includes dermaplaning and a scalp and hand massage.
