Cost of IPL

Our office charges $475 for full face IPL, with discounts for added on areas and subsequent treatments.  Depending on your skin type and need, a series of 3-4 may be recommended.  In the right hands, IPL can be a very effective way to remove brown and red spots from your skin. 

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.

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.

Cost of IPL

The cost of an IPL treatment can range anywhere from $300-$500 depending on the area being treated.  Optimal results can often be achieved with a series of 3-6 treatments depending on the amount of correction needed.  We offer package pricing to help offset the cost of multiple treatments and include a complimentary microderm with each IPL treatment our patients receive. If you are considering IPL treatments, keep in mind that your skin care regimen is equally, if not as important as your treatments. Therefore, be sure to discuss with your clinician a regimen that will fit into your lifestyle to assist in maintaining your desired result. 

Cost of IPL/BBL

Cost is going to depend on the quality of the equipment and operator.

You generally get what you pay for.  An IPL/BBL device does not entail simply flipping a switch and treating a patient.  Each patient is different and different patients with unique skin issues will require adjusting filters, and settings on the device to attain the optimal result.  A individual operating the device without the requisite knowledge of light dynamics and skin anatomy will not likely give you the results you could have achieved otherwise.

I perform all of the photorejuvenation procedures in my clinic and we use the Sciton Joule platform which I believe to be the pinnacle of technology in the field of light based devices.  It is also the most versatile given the fact that it allows me to treat my clients with fractional or ablative resurfacing at the same time as IPL/BBL.
