What is IPL?
When you struggle with how your skin looks because of sun damage or dark spots, Nuance Medspa can offer you a skin analysis at our Ridgefield, WA office to see if you'll benefit from intense pulsed light (IPL) therapy. An IPL photofacial is a noninvasive skin rejuvenation treatment for patients with hyperpigmentation problems on their neck and face. Board-certified physician Dr. Do sends intense wavelengths of light that raise the temperature of the skin cells to set off the natural regeneration process and boost collagen production. Over time, you should see a healthier complexion with a more even tone and fewer dark spots.

"My experience at Nuance has been wonderful from start to finish. Dr. Do was personable and professional. Mai has truly taken patient care to the next level - incredibly attentive and genuinely concerned with my comfort and well-being through the procedure and during the healing process as well. The pair set me up for success both before and after surgery with a detailed shopping list and goody bag. Mai has performed two ultrasound massages on me post procedure which have helped a TON with swelling reduction. Thank you for helping me gain a new found confidence in my figure! I highly recommended Dr. Do, Mai and the team at Nuance Med Spa."- J.J. / Google / Feb 17, 2022
"(Translated by Google) My experience with Nuance has been transformative. After going in for a consultation, Mai listened to my needs and knew exactly what I needed to see results before my wedding. I couldn't believe how quickly my skin improved after the peel treatment, recommended skin regimen and microneedling sessions. Instantly, I felt so much more confident in myself. I barely wore makeup on my wedding day and rarely wear it now. I used to never even leave the house without applying makeup. The fact that my skin feels and looks so much better makes me realize how important skin care is, and I am eternally grateful to Nuance for giving me such incredible results! (Original) Mi experiencia con Nuance ha sido transformadora. Después de ir a una consulta, Mai escuchó mis necesidades y sabía exactamente lo que necesitaba para ver resultados antes de mi boda. No podía creer lo rápido que mejoró mi piel despues del tratamiento de exfoliación, el recomendado régimen de piel y las sesiones de microagujas. Al instante, me sentí mucho más segura de mí misma. Apenas usé maquillaje el día de mi boda y rara vez lo uso ahora. Antes ni siquiera salía de casa sin aplicarme con maquillaje. El hecho de que mi piel se sienta y se vea mucho mejor me hace dar cuenta de lo importante que es el cuidado de la piel, y estoy eternamente agradecida a Nuance por brindarme resultados tan increíbles!"- S.P. / Google / Jan 19, 2022
Ideal Candidates for IPL
An IPL photofacial reaches the deeper layers of your skin to treat many complexion blemishes (especially sun spots and brown lesions) with minimal or no recovery needed. Ideal candidates for IPL treatments at Nuance Medspa may have a combination of issues with their skin, including rosacea, sun damage, hyperpigmentation (brown spots), rough texture, large pores, flushing, freckles, sun and age spots, or spider veins. Dr. Do will assess your complexion to determine if you are a candidate for an IPL photofacial during your initial consultation.
What to Expect with IPL
There is no recovery time needed with a photofacial treatment. You may leave your appointment with your complexion a little red and swollen. Nuance Medspa advises you to apply a cream on the skin's surface to minimize any irritation and promote healing. Over the course of several days, the sun damage and other irregularities that rested under the skin will rise to the surface and then begin to flake off. It's important to protect your skin with sunscreen at all times after an IPL photofacial treatment and to not pick at the flaking skin. Dr. Do recommends approximately 3 – 6 sessions scheduled every four weeks at Nuance Medspa.
Smoother, Healthier Skin
