IPL in Auburn Hills, MI

What Is IPL?

When you struggle with how your complexion looks because of sun damage or dark spots, Capstone Vision & Aesthetics can perform a skin analysis at our Auburn Hills, MI office to determine if you'll benefit from intense pulsed light (IPL) therapy. An IPL photofacial is a rejuvenating skin treatment for adult women and men with hyperpigmentation problems on their face and neck. IPL may not be an invasive procedure, but it can be very effective and create great outcomes. Aesthetic specialist Dr. Leslie Emmert-Buck sends intense pulses of light that warm the skin cells to start the natural regeneration process and increase collagen production. In time, you should see a healthier layer with an improved tone and fewer dark spots. Although IPL is a noninvasive process, it can be highly effective and produce radiant results for your skin. Our Auburn Hills, MI team uses the Alma Harmony® XL PRO laser to perform IPL photofacials and can provide a skin examination to determine if this service can help you reach your skin goals.

How Does IPL Work?

IPL is completed at our Auburn Hills, MI office in about 20 – 30 minutes in one of our treatment rooms if no other treatments are performed. To start the process, your technician will wash and dry your skin before covering your eyes with goggles. The photofacial is administered using a handheld device that passes over the skin while emitting pulses of light energy. While most patients will feel mild discomfort throughout the IPL, it's usually tolerable given the fast treatment time.

What Are the Benefits of IPL?

IPL photofacials are known at Capstone Vision & Aesthetics for their transforming benefits. A few of the advantages that our Auburn Hills, MI individuals obtain from their IPL photofacials are:

  • Revitalized, enhanced skin appearance
  • Enhanced skin tone and texture
  • Neutralizing of pigmentation and dark spots
  • A calming, spa-like procedure that boosts skin radiance

I can highly recommend Dr. Emmert-Buck. I had cataract surgery on both eyes as well as a lens inserted on both this summer and I can see 20/20 without glasses, it's a life changer. Dr Emmert-Buck is a very caring and meticulous doctor/person and explains everything before and after surgery in an easy to understand manner. She also takes her time with you when you are in her office to go through all the exams and any questions you might have. I'm recommending all my family and friends to see her for any eye needs.
