IPL costs a few hundred

IPl price used to be around $500 per one treatment. As this modality became more popular and available the cost is now also more affordable. It can range between $200 and $350 per one session. Most patients will need series of 5 treatments so, packages are usually are better deals. You should expect to pay for package of 5 IPL's around $1000.

How Much Does IPL Cost?

IPL treatments generally cost between $200-$500 depending on the size of the area treated.  Most patients will typically need multiple treatments to achieve full results, so packages are typically the best pricing.  

Cost for IPL

Our office charges between $300-$500 per treatment depending on if it's just the face or face and neck. We will recommend approximately 3 treatments depending on the condition of the skin. We also will recommend the treatments to be spaced about 4 weeks apart to allow the skin to heal before doing the next treatment.

IPL Cost in Richmond, Va

The cost for IPL treatments can vary depending upon your geographic area as well as the area which you want treated. 

Here in Richmond the average treatment with a physician, and not a "med spa" starts at $250 and can go up to $500. 

Packages can be a good option as can treating several areas at the same time, for example a treatment of the face and chest. We offer discounts when multiple areas are treated. 

In the right hands, IPL can give fantastic results for redness and pigmentation. It is not suitable for very dark skin, as the risk of pigmentation change is high for these individuals. 

We use a newer IPL device which is very powerful, and have many patients who were very happy with their results after only 2 treatments. 

Be sure to find someone with experience in operating any type of laser or light-based device, ask to see before and after photos, and ask their qualifications for performing the treatment. 

I hope this helps

Cost of IPL

In Ohio all laser treatments other than laser hair removal must be administered by a physician, so they may cost a bit more than states where physician extenders can perform the treatment.  The cost is usually $300-400/treatment.  Most patients need 3-5 treatments, one month apart.

IPL Cost Varies around the Country

The costs of having an IPL treatment depends on lots of factors, including where you are in the country and what is being treated. On average, one should expect to pay between $300 and $500 per treatment for a full-face treatment. This is customary almost everywhere I know in the country. Most clinicians tell you that a series of treatments are needed to rejuvenate the face and this is true for most individuals, so plan on 3-4 treatment sessions usually scheduled a month apart.

IPL cost

This really depends on a variety of factors, such as the city you're in, the technology used, and the area you'd like to have treated. Generally, in Toronto, Ontario, you can expect to pay around $300 for a session targeting the face.

Cost of $380

IPL is conducted by our nurses (laser nurses). We make things affordable, and charge $ 350 USD or about 380 Australian Dolllars. We really haven't had a price rise in the past 4 years. 
We prefer the Scition Machine, as the wavelengths (BBL) are closer spaced, and the machine is super reliable. Additionally the machine has different foot prints to treat hard to reach areas.
