Enjoy Radiant Skin

Intense pulsed light treatments can be used all over the face and body, including the neck, chest, abdomen, arms, and legs. This treatment is typically an ideal option, no matter what your aesthetic concern is. At MG Plastic Surgery in Scottsdale, AZ, our cosmetic experts can help you achieve glowing skin.

How Does Intense Pulsed Light Work?

Intense pulsed light therapy uses particular wavelengths of light to alter the behavior of the skin and hair. Specifically, some light wavelengths can accelerate cellular turnover, while others can reduce the function of hair follicles. This treatment emits gentle heat that will help you achieve your aesthetic goals by stimulating your body’s natural rejuvenation and healing abilities.

Three Hair Removal Modes


This mode allows conventional hair removal treatment on the face and body. IPL emits powerful polychromatic light pulses to generate changes in your skin and remove hair.


SHR mode allows continuous motion on larger areas such as the legs, arms, and back. This function emits ten shots per second and is combined with a semiconductor cooling system for a pain-free laser hair removal experience.


This function uses a series of pulses to remove hair on smaller, more sensitive areas such as the bikini, underarms, upper lip, hairline, and front of the ears.

Treatment Options

Acne Treatment

Acne treatment with light therapy exposes the skin to light wavelengths that can reduce skin inflammation, eliminate acne-causing bacteria, and improve skin tone. Light therapy can be an excellent option for those who want to simultaneously treat active acne and reduce acne scarring. This treatment may be especially beneficial for cystic acne.

Rosacea Treatment

Rosacea is associated with chronic inflammation of the skin that can cause flushing, broken vessels, and acne-like bumps on the skin. Managing rosacea can be challenging because the condition has several triggers that may be impossible to avoid. Light therapy can significantly calm inflammation to improve skin health.

Hair Removal Treatment

Hair removal is another common use for light therapy. Light therapy to remove unwanted hair works by emitting a small amount of heat that will shock the hair follicles and create enough damage to prevent future hair growth. This treatment can be applied to virtually any area where hair grows, including the upper lip, cheeks, chin, chest, underarms, forearms, back, abdomen, legs, and bikini area.

Pigmentation Treatment

Pigmentation is an umbrella term for any type of dark spot or blemish on the face. In particular, photodamage can cause concerns that can prematurely age you, create freckles, or form dark spots that makeup cannot cover. Light therapy is a great choice to treat pigmentation because it is non-invasive and will help you achieve a more even skin tone.

How Many Treatments Will You Need?

Most people who use light therapy will need at least six to twelve consecutive treatments to achieve optimal results.

How soon will I see the results?

The results of this treatment are gradual, so it can take several weeks to see results. You may see early results after two to three treatments for melasma, rosacea, and acne. For the removal of unwanted hair, it will likely take at least eight weeks before you will see significant results.

How long will the results last?

Usually, the results of this treatment will last for several months to a year. For example, for unwanted hair, you can achieve results that last for 12 or more months, particularly if you maintain your results with touch-up appointments each year. For concerns such as melasma, rosacea, and acne, your results can last for about six months before you need another touch-up.

How can I maintain my results?

The best way to maintain your desired results is to follow your aftercare instructions closely, take care of your skin by using high-quality skincare products, lead a healthy lifestyle, and avoid unprotected exposure to the sun. By taking good care of yourself, you can take good care of your skin and feel better about your appearance in the future.
