Intense Pulsed Light Treatment
in Boca Raton
Learn how light therapy can transform your skin
Intense pulsed light therapy offers a gentler solution to treating common skin concerns like sun damage, hyperpigmentation, and dark undereye circles. So you can improve your skin without the lengthy recovery or downtime.
What is Intense Pulsed Light Therapy?
The Cynosure laser MaxG™ handpiece is specifically designed as a laser for pigmentation removal. Unwanted skin pigment, including brown spots, freckles, dark circles beneath the eyes, age spots, and melasma, absorb the powerful light energy, which shatters the pigment into tiny fragments, making them less visible. The same lightwave technology lessens or eliminates skin redness, such as rosacea and broken capillaries. The result: skin looks younger and clearer, and areas of pigment and/or broken capillaries are either much lighter or have been eliminated entirely. Repeated treatments, based about a month apart, will increase results.
Who is a Candidate for Intense Pulsed Light Therapy?

- Broken capillaries

How is Intense Pulsed Light Therapy Performed?
Prior to your IPL treatment at our Boca Raton plastic surgery practice, we will apply an anesthetic cream to numb your skin. After 30-45 minutes, the cream is rinsed off. Both you and Dr. Berman will wear protective goggles during your IPL treatment, which takes about 30-60 minutes, depending upon the number of areas to be treated. Our Boca Raton IPL patients experience minimal discomfort, thanks to the combination of the cream anesthetic and the cooling handpiece used during IPL treatment.
Recovery and Results
Most of our Boca Raton IPL patients return to their day’s schedule immediately after their treatment session. Please be aware that the pigment in the treated area(s) will temporarily become darker. As the pigment begins to slough away, you’ll see clearer skin.
