Photofacial/IPL Torrance

Skin Works Medical Spa offers the most effective IPL treatment in Torrance, Redondo Beach and surrounding areas. The LimeLight Photofacial is a non-invasive, non-surgical treatment used to revitalize the skin. This treatment improves skin tone and surface imperfections, such as agespots associated with aging, acne scars, photodamage and other damage.

What areas can be treated?

The LimeLight Photofacial is ideal for any part of the face, neck, and décolleté affected by skin redness, tiny veins, brown spots, or other imperfections.

What does the treatment do?

We will customize your LimeLight Photofacial to your skin type. Results include more illuminated, healthy and younger-looking skin.

What do treatments feel like?

When a pulse of light is delivered, patients may experience a mild pinching or stinging sensation. The heating of the pigmented brown spots may also cause a therapeutic effect. We use a specific gel to cool the skin before vascular treatments. Anesthesia or pain medicine is typically not required.

How many treatments will I need?

One to three treatments are recommended to see results. Additional treatments may be necessary for excessively sun-damaged skin.

What happens after the treatment?

Immediately following the treatment, brown spots will start to darken and your skin may appear slightly red. The treated area may be mildly swollen. This typically lasts a few hours and possibly a day or longer. Cosmetics can be applied to cover the redness. The skin causing the darkened spots will flake off and the spots will begin to fade within 1-3 weeks after treatment. It is important to apply sun screen while outdoors to minimize sun damage and the appearance of new spots.

We ensure the procedure is appropriate for you before we administer treatment.
