Skin naturally changes as it ages. Over the years, the skin loses its healthy glow and becomes more lackluster. Aging is a certainty that starts and progresses differently for everyone. Some first notice subtle lines form around the mouth. Others might develop crow’s feet.
Other factors that influence skin’s appearance include:
- Exposure to ultraviolet (UV) light: Skin exposed to natural UV light ages more quickly.
- Smoking: Studies show smoking also has a negative impact on skin health.
Intense pulsed light (IPL) therapy is a form of treatment designed to tackle age spots, wrinkles, and unwanted hair.
The Modern Body Clinic takes a “360-degree approach” by helping clients look and feel their best every day.

Get Rid of the Imperfections That Bother You
If your goal is an evenly-toned complexion free from wrinkles, large pores, or brown or red spots, light therapy may be for you.
Intense pulsed light therapy can minimize or eliminate:
- sun damage
- age spots
- varicose veins
- broken facial blood vessels
One of the top IPL benefits include shorter recovery times; it is a non-invasive procedure.
During the session, you will only experience mild discomfort. Most patients report the light feels like rubber bands snapping against the skin. You may experience short-term swelling and redness at home, but the effect fades within hours. In fact, most patients head right back to work after a lunch-hour session.
Light therapy sounds similar to laser resurfacing, but it’s a more gentle procedure that doesn’t damage the epidermis. The focused energy from a laser removes a fine layer of skin. IPL energy scatters, targeting discoloration directly. In other words, you’ll heal faster with light therapy and are less likely to experience a complication.
How Light Therapy Treatments Help
The Modern Body Clinic team uses light energy to accurately target pigmented or damaged skin or hair follicles and remove them.
A medical professional uses a handheld device to target multiple wavelengths directly on the skin. Within a few short minutes, the light heats and breaks down the unwanted skin cells. The body then naturally removes the damaged tissue on its own. You may receive a chilling gel or local anesthetic to cope with the discomfort before the procedure.
The efficacy of your treatment depends on several factors, including the type of equipment used. That’s why Modern Body Clinic always invests in state-of-the-art technology.
Everyone responds to light therapy differently, but almost everyone will need more than one round to notice changes. You’ll have the opportunity to consult with a medical professional and develop a comprehensive, personalized treatment plan.
Are you tired of living with a dull complexion or shaving unwanted hair? IPL benefits include healthy, glowing skin, and much more.

Frequently Asked Questions about Photofacials
What is the LimeLight Facial (IPL)?
The LimeLight Facial is a non-invasive approach to skin revitalization using Cutera’s LimeLight. The procedure offers the advantage of improving skin tone and surface imperfections associated with aging and sun damage.
What areas can be treated?
The LimeLight Facial is ideal for any part of your face, neck, and décolleté with skin redness, telangiectasia (tiny veins), or brown spots. Light (low contrast) brown spots, which were previously difficult to resolve, respond very well to treatment.
What does the treatment do?
By selecting the appropriate program, we can customize your LimeLight Facial to your skin type and selectively treat the brown and/or red pigmented areas on your skin. It’s the heating of the pigmented brown or red cells that causes the therapeutic effect.
What do treatments feel like?
When the pulse of light is delivered, patients will experience a mild pinching or stinging sensation. A gel is recommended to cool the skin before vascular treatments. Anesthesia or pain medicine is typically not required.
How long will the treatments take?
Treatment time depends on the area of the body being treated. However, most treatments should take less than one hour.
How many treatments will I need?
One to three treatments are usually sufficient to see results. Additional treatments may be recommended, especially for excessively sun-damaged skin.
What happens after the treatment?
Immediately following treatment, brown spots will start to darken and your skin may appear slightly red. The treated area may be mildly swollen. This typically lasts a few hours and possibly a day or longer. Make-up can be applied to cover the redness.
When will I see results?
Within one to three weeks, the darkened spots will flake off and fade. Diffuse redness or telangiectasia will decrease and your mottled complexion will improve.
Will the spots and redness reappear over time?
New brown spots, telangiectasia, and diffuse redness may appear with new sun damage; however, they too can be treated. Remember to always apply broad-spectrum sunscreen when outdoors to minimize sun damage and the appearance of new spots and diffuse redness. Rosacea is chronic and cannot be “cured” with any laser or light source, however, its appearance can be improved.
