Photofacials or IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) laser treatments produce clinical results for a variety of skin issues. Patients of all ages can benefit from the safe, effective and consistent results achieved with this laser technology.
Areas that can be treated:
Patients who struggle with the look of sun damage or dark spots on their skin are ideal candidates for intense pulsed light (IPL) therapy at Summit Spa & Float. A photofacial with IPL is a rejuvenating treatment for a variety of pigmentation concerns.
Intense wavelengths of light energy are utilized to trigger the natural regeneration process and boost collagen production. With each treatment you will notice a healthier complexion, decreased areas of hyperpigmentation and enhanced tone.
IPL is not an invasive treatment option. It can be very effective and produces impressive outcomes for your skin.
What skin issues can a Photofacial or IPL help with?:
- Vascular Legions
- Pigmented Lesions
- Port Wine Stains

Our DYE VL utilizes two types of technologies. The first is IN-Motion technology which helps to mitigate unwanted side effects while maximizing the patients comfort level. The second is IPL. Most IPL or intense pulsed light treatments use stationary or stamping techniques during treatment. The IN-Motion movement with our laser allows the technician to achieve those same results with continuous motion which gives the patient a more pleasant experience.
How long does a Photofacial take?
A typical treatment only takes approximately 30 minutes. Once in the treatment room your technician will review what to expect with your procedure.

How many treatments will I need?
