What is an Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) laser?

The Palomar Starlux IPL Laser is a high-energy, broad-spectrum light-emitting device. Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) delivers diffuse, multi-colored light utilizing a range of visible and invisible light energy filters. 

The Palomar StarLux laser has a unique cooling tip that cools the skin before, during, and after each pulse light, minimizing discomfort.


How does Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) work?

IPL uses specialized handpieces that filter light from different parts of the light spectrum. Each spectrum band has a wavelength to deliver powerful pulses of light to your skin, breaking down excess pigmentation and causing your body to lift it out of the skin naturally. 


Palomar StarLux IPL therapy is very effective for decreasing hyperpigmentation and improves the appearance of the following: 

  • acne scars, blackheads, and pustules

  • freckles, age spots, sunspots, rosacea, brown patches, and melasma

  • vascular lesions such as port wine stains, cherry hemangiomas, and spider veins

Matrix CO₂ Skin Resurfacing Fractional Laser is known as:

  • The gold standard resurfacing platform for advanced skin imperfections

  • The "fountain of youth" with proven effectiveness

  • One of the most popular and widely used lasers of all time

  • Revolutionary in its increased comfort and decreased downtime, as opposed to the traditional CO₂ lasers of the past

What areas of the skin can be treated by the IPL laser?

The face, neck, chest, hands, arms, and abdomen can be treated. Dr. Elkhalili can use the IPL laser to treat small, specific areas or your entire face and neck.


What can I expect during my IPL laser therapy treatment?

Using the Palomar StarLux IPL laser, Dr. Elkhalili can control the strength of the treatment to meet your specific needs. The IPL handpiece moves over your skin with several light pulses. During the pulses, you will notice a flashing light, an audible tone, and a mild sensation on the skin. A special contact cooling handpiece keeps your skin's temperature low to minimize discomfort. 


The treatment time is usually less than 30 minutes, but this depends on the area(s) treated.


How many sessions will I need?

Multiple sessions of laser treatments are usually required and are typically scheduled about 4–6 weeks apart. Dr. Elkhalili can answer this more definitively after assessing your specific areas of concern. 


How long does it take to heal from IPL laser resurfacing?

Immediately following treatment, you can expect your skin to feel mildly sunburned. Sometimes minor swelling can also occur, usually lasting 2–24 hours. Other than some redness that typically resolves quickly, you can return to your daily activities soon after your session. 


The first few days after your treatment, you may notice your dark spots darkening even more; this is a normal part of the process. The pigment should fade away after a few days.


Dr. Elkhalili will provide specific post-treatment guidelines after your session(s).


When considering an IPL laser procedure, please schedule your treatment 2-3 weeks before any special event.

How long will the improvement last from my IPL laser treatment?


The results depend on your lifestyle and future sun exposure. With good UV protection, the results of your IPL laser should last 1-2 years. However, with proper maintenance treatments, your results can last much longer. 


How much does IPL laser treatment cost?


The price of Palomar StarLux IPL laser treatments can vary based on several factors. During your IPL laser consultation, Dr. Elkhalili will explain the procedure in detail, answer any questions, and give you a full breakdown.
