What is IPL?
Individuals who struggle with the appearance of hyperpigmentation or sun damage in their complexion can be ideal candidates for intense pulsed light (IPL) therapy at New Life Medical Centers. An IPL photofacial is a skin rejuvenation treatment for hyperpigmentation on the neck and face. The cutting-edge Alma Harmony XL PRO device sends intense pulses of light to stimulate the natural regeneration process and increase collagen production. Over time, you should notice a healthier appearance, a more even tone, and decreased spots. Schedule a consultation in our Greenville, SC office to help determine if this option can help you achieve your skin goals.

How much does IPL cost?
Complexion issues are unique to the individual, which means the cost of IPL therapy will depend on your personal condition. At your aesthetic consultation, our team can estimate your cost based on a treatment plan that helps you reach your goals. Also, please ask us about our specials, which we offer periodically.
How quick are the results from IPL?
Some skin improvements can generally be experienced following your treatment with Harmony XL PRO, but final results are most commonly noticeable about one month after your last treatment. It is common for you to respond differently to each session. You should see a fading of blotchiness, redness, sun spots, and age spots as time goes on.
What are the possible side effects of IPL?
Most patients have mild, temporary side effects, like swelling, redness, crusting, bruising, or blisters. However, this should go away within a day or two after the procedure. Your skin will be photosensitive, and excessive exposure to damaging UV rays will impact the results of the procedure. We also recommend using sunscreen to protect your skin and help prevent skin damage, including sun spots and redness.
Do I need to prep for IPL?
Greenville, SC patients about to undergo an IPL treatment are asked to skip sun exposure and self-tanners for 2 – 4 weeks prior to the procedure. You might need to discontinue the use of Retin-A/Renova, tetracycline, minocycline, and doxycycline several days before your appointment, and we may recommend that you avoid taking anti-inflammatory medications and blood thinners for one week before the procedure to decrease your risk of developing bruises. You also need to use sunscreen since your skin will be extra sensitive.
Why should I get multiple IPL sessions?
A full series of IPL photorejuvenation is recommended to produce natural-looking enhancements in your complexion. Every session will help to diminish spots and other surface irregularities. A series of sessions also produces longer-lasting aesthetic outcomes.
New Life Medical Centers Reviews
Amazing doctor!!! I called him “my daughter’s angel” She was suffering with a “mental” disorder, unknown causes or cured. I knew this diagnosed was wrong. My daughter is literally living a New Life. Listen to your gut! Don’t believe everything that your regular doctors say to you, they don’t want to waste their time trying to find the root of you problem, they just send you medications to “stop” symptoms without the real cause.
I saw an ad for New Life Medical Center when I was researching causes for foot pain. I started treatment for neuropathy and I’m halfway through my treatment plan. It’s amazing how much better I feel already!
Dr. Hirshorn provides a very thorough examination of each patients medical history and current issues and uses the best diagnostic tools current science has to offer. Our family believes that discovering and treating root causes of disease is the best root to complete healing. Every member of the New Life staff has been wonderful to work with.
