Heal and restore your skin with the IPL photofacial
Our Baltimore IPL photofacial is a painless, non-invasive treatment that uses the remarkable power of intense pulsed light to heal facial redness, blemishes and sun damage. Treatment with IPL can be used on the face, hands or body and is effective in reducing acne scarring, fine lines, wrinkles and rosacea. Other skin irregularities such as birthmarks, freckles, cherry moles, spider veins and age spots can also be well treated with laser skin rejuvenation.
How is a state-of-the-art IPL photofacial performed?
Prior to treatment, a topical anesthetic may be applied. During your session an IPL handpiece will be gently applied to the skin, through which light pulses are released. The average IPL session lasts about 30 minutes, and you will need several sessions to achieve your best result.
How does the IPL photofacial work to replenish silky, blemish-free skin?
The intense pulsed light is emitted as multiple wavelengths to target the cells responsible for the unwanted pigment. The laser heat gently destroys the melanin-heavy skin cells. The dark spots eventually flake off, leaving your skin glowing, youthful and refreshed.

Who makes a good candidate for the treatment?

What is the recovery time involved?
With an IPL photofacial in Baltimore, there is virtually no recuperation time required. You will be able to return right away to your normally scheduled activities. You will see your age spots gradually peel off over the course of about 1-2 weeks.
I have been to a few laser hair removal places but Comprehensive Laser actually knows what they are doing. They have experienced medical staff and I feel safe being treated by people that actually know how to treat my skin tone! Anywhere can get a laser and call themselves a laser clinic, but this place has the experience behind it! I love their evening appointments! Where else can I get an appointment at 630pm on a weekday? Their laser nurse practitioners are very accommodating to my busy schedule and always get me in the same week I call for an appointment! Definitely recommend coming here!
