Has your skin started to show signs of aging, sun damage, or acne scarring? Laser skin resurfacing can give you smooth, even-toned skin. This treatment brightens and rejuvenates the skin using pulses of light energy.
Laser skin resurfacing is a broad term that includes using a light-based treatment to trigger skin rejuvenation and improve texture and tone. At Manhattan Aesthetics, we prefer the IPL PhotoFacial for our laser skin resurfacing. IPL stands for “intense pulsed light.” Unlike most laser treatments, IPL uses many wavelengths of light simultaneously to target a variety of imperfections and signs of aging.

As the light from the IPL PhotoFacial reaches the skin, it causes heat at the dermis level, the deep layers of the skin where new cell development begins. This triggers new collagen development and brings healthy new skin cells to the surface. As a result, skin looks smoother, brighter, and clearer. IPL makes an excellent treatment for reducing signs of aging and sun damage without skin damage or recovery time.
The cost of laser skin resurfacing varies depending on the laser used. For an IPL PhotoFacial, the average price ranges from $400 to $500. Factors that affect your cost include your provider, location, and individual skin concerns.
Laser skin resurfacing with IPL can treat numerous skin concerns related to aging, sun damage, and hyperpigmentation. You can see results in skin conditions, including:
IPL excels at addressing pigment concerns like hyperpigmentation and redness. Because it triggers collagen development, it also improves skin firmness and smooths lines, wrinkles, and uneven texture.

Each type of laser skin resurfacing requires a different number of treatment sessions. For an IPL PhotoFacial, the number of treatments depends on your skin concerns and goals. You can have your initial series of treatments spaced one month apart. After this series, we recommend maintenance treatments as needed. You can help prolong your results by avoiding sun exposure and using quality skin care products.
Many people notice redness after IPL that lasts a few days. You can cover this with gentle mineral makeup as needed. You can return to your usual activities when you finish your treatment. You will need sun protection as your skin heals.
