Intense Pulsed Light (IPL)


Eliminate Brown Spots & Redness


Did you grow up loving your tan? While the sun is important in maintaining our vitamin D levels, its UVA rays can cause a range of issues, such as wrinkles, brown spots, broken vessels, redness (rosacea) and even skin cancer. Sunscreens’ SPF ratings only refer to the UVB rays that burn, and inadequate or expired sunscreens contribute to the high incidence of age related changes. Dr. Cockerham can help you reverse a variety of those changes using patented, state-of-the-art intense pulsed light therapy (IPL), also known as photofacial treatment.

ABCs of IPL

IPL is an advanced technology that uses a broad spectrum of light wavelengths and a variety of filters to gently draw the brown spots onto the surface of your skin. These areas will then exfoliate painlessly in seven to ten days. Redness associated with rosacea also dramatically reversed by IPL. Dr. Cockerham has over two decades of experience facilitating facial rejuvenation for women and men with sun-damaged skin. She has been selected as a Center of Excellence by Lumenis® to teach other physicians the most advanced techniques.

Issues IPL Can Address:
  • Brown spots due to sun or hormones
  • Sun damage
  • Skin discoloration
  • Redness and visible vessels
  • Acne, rosacea and other conditions

The treatment can be used on the face, neck, chest, back, arms and legs to combat these and other unsightly skin conditions.

Fast Treatment With No Downtime

Anesthetic cream and a cooling gel are applied to maximize effectiveness and optimize comfort. Your treatment is completed in 20 minutes per area. Following your IPL, you can resume your normal activities immediately, after applying sunblock. Results can vary, but three to six treatments are usually needed to achieve the desired look.
