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 Prices


I have seen a huge price range on this particular treatment. I've seen them as low as $150 and as high as $500 to the face. At my office we charge a fair price because I feel it's a wonderful treatment to offer my dermatolgy patients who have suffered from extreme sun damage, rosacea and other pigmented diseases of the skin. It does a great job and the patients are generally very pleased with the results. Most patients need 2-3 treatments and most offices give a discount if you purchase a package of 3 together.

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.

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.

Cost of IPL


In our office, we do an updated version of IPL called AFT. Depending on the extent of the hyperpigmentation, we charge anywhere from $100-$400 per area. $100 would cover spot treatments, where the $400 would cover a full face and neck treatment. It is the most effective laser for hyperpigmentation (brown or red spots) on the market.

The average cost for a Fotofacial is between $250 and $500 for the face, neck, or chest. Some patients with Rosacea may just need the cheeks, nose, and chin so the price may be reduced.
