What is IPL?

Intense pulsed light therapy is a nonsurgical procedure that uses high intensity light energy To help improve the skin’s appearance. This advanced technology helps remove unwanted pigment such as brown and red spots, as well as unwanted visible blood vessels allowing for clearer and more beautiful skin.

Benefits of IPL

IPL can treat benign pigmented lesions and vascular lesions, such as telangiectasias, rosacea, port-wine stain, hemangioma, angioma, and spider veins.

IPL has been a leading nonsurgical procedure in treating vascular lesions. Because IPL is able to target multiple light wavelengths, it is able to treat both red and blue blood vessels. It works by raising the temperature of small blood vessels to coagulate, self-destruct, and then be replaced by skin tissue. Some popular vascular lesions targeted by IPL are cherry angiomas and telangiectasias. IPL has also been shown to be effective for background erythema (redness) and rosacea.

Not only does IPL treat vascular lesions but can also work on hair removal. It targets the melanin in the hair follicles. The melanin absorbs the light energy and destroys the hair follicle. IPL works particularly well with dark coarse hair in various anatomic locations.

How does IPL work?

Light energy is absorbed into the skin and converted to heat to target specific conditions on the skin. It is considered a non-ablative laser with minimal downtime. IPL differs from other lasers in that it has a broad wavelength range (many different wavelengths of light) which can treat many chromophores (hemoglobin, water, melanin) simultaneously. The light energy delivered targets your problem areas and causes them to disappear through the body’s natural healing process.


Our IPL experts will examine and customize your treatments to your personal specifications. Numbing is not typically needed; however, numbing cream is an option and can be applied prior to treatment if requested.

What to expect after IPL

A mild sunburn-like sensation is expected after treatment. This usually lasts two to twenty-four hours but can persist up to seventy-two hours. Mild swelling and/or redness may accompany this, but it usually resolves in two to three days. After treatment, ice/gel packs can be applied to the treated area as needed and an oral over-the counter anti-inflammatory may be used to reduce discomfort.

Treatment sessions are usually under 30 minutes. Typically, 3 sessions are recommended for maximized results, each session spaced out 4-6 weeks apart.

I had such an AWESOME experience at Halo Beverly Hills.

PA Haley Trinh is professional and talented with a knowledge of her specialty that surpassed my expectations. I'm a real wimp when it comes to this stuff so PA Haley numbed my skin pretty well and took time to explain the procedures and reassured me throughout. She Picosured my neck and face and followed that with Potenza. The Potenza was still a bit uncomfortable but she helped me get through it. Afterwards, I got injected with some Dysport. I'm 3 weeks out from my procedures and the heavy lines all over my face and neck have really improved.

This place is gorgeous with sweet views of LA & was relaxing from the moment I walked through the front door. I'd give 6 stars if yelp allowed more than 5. Thank you !

I have been wanting to get Botox and I came across Nurse Angella.

She is really amazing! I was super nervous especially this being my first time getting any treatments done. She made the whole process very comfortable. I highly highly recommend scheduling an appointment here. I will definitely be coming back for my touch up~

This place is absolutely amazing!

I found Nurse Angella on instagram and switched from my previous clinic that was expensive and stuffy - but this office has the most kind, friendly staff and nurse angella is patient, explains everything and helps you find a treatment plan for your budget. My botox results are 10/10 and i felt like she actually did the proper prep work to figure out where to inject that my other plastic surgeon doctor didn't! Love this place and will continue coming here!
