PhotoFacial is a non-ablative and non-invasive dermatology procedure that rejuvenates your skin using the remarkable new technology of Intense Pulsed Light (IPL).

Aesthetica Med Spa Austin, Texas

IPL PhotoFacials can improve the signs of sun damage, rosacea, and brown spots on the face, hands and body. It has also been used to reduce the appearance of mild acne scars, dark circles around the eyes and fine lines around the eyes and mouth.

The IPL PhotoFacial hand piece is gently pressed to the skin and gentle pulses of light are emitted. Usually 3-5 treatment sessions provide you with beautiful results.

There is little to no recuperation time – however an IPL PhotoFacial will leave you red, and your freckles and sun spots will darken tremendously until they slough off 5-6 days later. You will notice a gradual, natural-looking improvement in your skin with time. IPL is a safe solution tailor-made to your skin type and condition.


Without a single doubt, if you qualify for this treatment and have the type of skin that could benefit from it, this treatment constitutes the biggest value in cosmetic dermatology. Can you imagine that all those freckles and brown spots from years in the sun could just dissolve and never come back? Well, think away! This is it, and it’s for you.

PhotoFacial can be used on any area of the body. It was developed in California by Dr. Patrick Bitter, Sr. He actually trademarked the name which Aesthetica Med Spa can use legally because we trained and were certified to do PhotoFacials by Dr. Bitter.

PhotoFacial is a trade name for the use of intense pulsed light (IPL), used in a specific manner with specific formulas. We have done thousands of these procedures at Aesthetica Med Spa and consider ourselves experts in this tricky procedure. Depending on your genetics, skin history, and other factors there are many variables that go into choosing an effective, yet safe protocol.

This treatment will decrease (sometimes permanently) freckles and brown spots, discolorations, redness, ruddiness, rosacea, fine lines and wrinkles, reduce pore size, help uneven skin tone, treat dark circles under the eyes (most effective treatment for this difficult condition), help with broken capillaries, red spots, and a red neck and chest area. The results you get from this procedure are very dependent on the skill and experience of the practitioner.
