IPL Photofacial Overview
The smooth, clear complexion you were born with can become blemished over time with spots, freckles, wrinkles, and scarring caused by the sun and other environmental damage. Instead of taking the time to conceal or color correct spots and other flaws on your skin, get rid of them with an intense pulsed light (IPL) photo facial at ZO Skin Centre® in Orange County. An IPL photo facial uses light energy to fade unwanted pigmentation in the skin along with other skin concerns like wrinkles, large pores, and a rough skin texture. An IPL photo facial is a noninvasive procedure with minimal recovery time and few possible side effects, but great results which make it a popular treatment for our patients in Laguna Beach and Newport Beach who want to enjoy the Southern California sun without the sun spots it can leave behind.
"I went to see Dr. Obagi earlier this year to get 2nd opinion on a bump on my face that I thought was cancer. My original dermatologist wanted to remove it which would have left a scar. The moment Dr. Obagi walked into the room he easily diagnosed that it was nothing but a wart (embarrassing). If I would have went with the advice of my original dermatologist, I would have had an unnecessary scar on face! To my surprised he diagnosed I had Rosacea and recommended an aggressive treatment that I have just started. I found the staff incredibly knowledgable about the ZO skin line, professional, and caring. Also, they were very helpful in walking me through how to use the products (several times). I've already recommended Dr. Obagi to several friends and will continue to do so."- J.K. / Yelp / Oct 29, 2016
"A few months ago I got treated for my cellulite with the Cellfina Treatment. I was treated by Dr. Bashey in Beverly Hills and could not be happier with my results. Being in my forties I honestly do not have the time for creams with my baby running around. Cellfina was a very quick treatment and long lasting that gave me the desired results I had no idea were possible. I chose to get this treatment well before bathing suit season, but honestly there was very little downtime and the recovery was quick.There was bruising for a month or so after, but once that went away I was able to see the extent of the results. I would highly recommend this treatment to anyone who has mild to severe dimpling and cellulite. It was an immediate mood boost and overall I feel like my confidence after having a kid is restored."- M.E. / Yelp / Apr 10, 2018
"Voluma Filler for my Face instead of Botox! AMAZING Results I was not Expecting! I recently went to see Dr. Bashey in Laguna Beach as the holidays are approaching and needed to get some Botox. I have received botox in the past and am familiar with it. I am in my mid-fifties and figured this was what I definitely needed. Dr. Bashey didn't just look at me and give me what I came in for, he sat down and really looked at my face, then went over different areas that could use help. Dr. Bashey is articulate and ended up injecting filler into my upper cheek area as well as Xeomon into my forehead. The filler ended up very naturally lifting my cheeks and face and also will last me he said up to 18 months or longer. I am extremely happy with my results and very thankful he took time with me to evaluate my needs. Dr. Bashey is extremely polite and made me feel comfortable with consulting before doing anything. I did not feel pressured and not much pain! I am looking forward to seeing him in the near furture for a for a chemical peel :)Thanks!"- N.H. / Yelp / Dec 19, 2017
"I could not be happier with my injectable treatment that I received from Dr. Bashey. He is kind, knowledgeable, and highly skilled. I will continue to see him for treatments. I highly recommend Dr. Bashey for ANY treatment or skin consultation. Did not even feel a needle poke! He is excellent!"- A.B. / Yelp / Oct 26, 2017
"I am so over the moon with my dermaplane treatment experience from Melissa at ZO Skin Centre Laguna Beach. Not only was she fast, but also careful and meticulous. The very best I have ever had! Thanks so much Melissa!"- C.D. / Yelp / Oct 17, 2017
Best Candidates for IPL Photofacial
An IPL photo facial can help you if you have an uneven skin tone caused by:
brown spots (hyperpigmentation)
A photo facial can also help minimize other skin concerns, like wrinkles, large pores, rough skin texture, and mild scarring.
What to Expect with IPL Photofacial
Before your photo facial, the technician will cleanse your face to remove any makeup, dirt, or oil that may interfere with the treatment. With your eyes protected from the laser, the technician will pass the handpiece along the skin as light wave is emitted. You may feel some discomfort during the treatment, similar to a rubber band being snapped against the skin during each light pulse, but a numbing cream can be applied before the treatment. After a photo facial, your skin will be extra sensitive to UV damage, so it's important to avoid sun exposure and protect your skin with sunscreen. Talk to your ZO® skin care professional about what products will best nourish your skin after your IPL photo facial and when to schedule your next treatment. Your skin may feel red or flushed for 1 -2 days after your treatment while skin blemishes begin to fade over the next 2 weeks. You may need several treatment sessions to reach your cosmetic goals.
