IPL Photofacial in Houston

21st-Century Rejuvenation.

The Power of Light.

A hallmark of healthy skin is an even complexion. Oftentimes, though, at-home skincare regimens aren’t potent enough to reach the deeper layers of the skin where underlying hyperpigmentation thrives.

The IPL photofacial is a powerful, safe, and effective therapy that uses varying wavelengths of light to address redness, brown spots, and more. In the skilled hands of our providers, the IPL photofacial in Houston from Studio Essex produces beautiful, long-lasting results for patients!

What to Expect

Before, During, and After an IPL Photofacial in Houston

1. Attend a One-on-One Consultation.

Prior to your IPL Photofacial Houston patients will first meet with a Studio Essex provider for a one-on-one consultation. We take the time to get to know you—your goals, medical history, skin type, and tone.

2. Approve Your Treatment Plan.

Our team of aesthetic specialists collaborate on every patient case to best advise you on the best options for addressing their concerns. We build a highly personalized treatment plan that may include a combination of both IPL photofacials and other aesthetic treatments to achieve the best possible results.

3. Getting an IPL Photofacial.

Before you receive an IPL photofacial Houston aestheticians will thoroughly clean your skin and apply eye protection. Once numb, we will glide the IPL handpiece across the treatment area, distributing the light into the targeted pigmentation and vessels.

4. Follow Up.

Once completed, we can schedule you for follow-up IPL photofacials or any other complementary procedures you'd like to enhance the effects of your initial photofacial and promote healthy, youthful skin.
