Cynosure® MaxG™ IPL Photofacials in Beverly Hills


Dramatic rejuvenation of the skin is now possible using the Icon MaxG IPL system. The system uses Optimised Light™ technology, which delivers gentle pulses of intense, optimised light to regions of unwanted pigmentation and facial vessels.

Also commonly called a photofacial, this non-surgical treatment can effectively reduce the appearance of sun spots, age spots, rosacea, and broken capillaries.

Treatment time can be as short as 20 minutes, depending on the area treated. Excellent results can be achieved within one or two treatments, but for the best and most complete results, several treatments may be required.


Get rid of age spots and sun damage with intense pulsed light (IPL) treatment for sun damage and age spots. It delivers visible results quickly, and is a powerful treatment alternative to topicals and chemical peels. Treatment sessions take just minutes, so you can resume your busy life.

Pigmentation laser treatment reduces the appearance of dark spots and pigment on your face and body, including: age spots, sun damage, solar lentigines, café au lait spots, moles, birthmarks, and freckles.

Trust skin revitalization for:

  • Visible results after just one treatment
  • Simple procedure with minimal discomfort
  • Quick, non-invasive treatment sessions
  • Excellent treatment outcomes

When the melanin is treated by a pulse of light, it causes the melanin to break down and the surrounding unaffected cells regenerate new cells.

While the settings can be made more or less aggressive, there is a small window in which treatment is safe. If set very low, it is not as effective, and if too high, one runs the risk of having a superficial burn or blister.

The treatment can also bring up deeper pigment to the surface. It is for this reason we often recommend a series of treatments for the best results and greatest improvement. Often times, our patients find that a series of 3-6 treatments, with a maintenance treatment every 6-12 months is sufficient to achieve optimal results.


25 minutes (or 45 minutes if opt for numbing).



None, or topical numbing cream.




Sun protection is critical to prevent new or worsening pigment.


Typically 3-6.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is IPL Photorejuvenation?

IPL photorejuvenation is the process of evening out the skin complexion and tone with energy from intense pulsed light (IPL). The treatment is a common choice for individuals who want to reduce age spots, sunspots, hyperpigmentation, signs of aging, and other skin damage.

What is an IPL Photofacial?

An IPL photofacial is a non-invasive treatment in Beverly Hills that uses intense pulsed light energy to rejuvenate, even out, and brighten the skin’s complexion and tone on the face, back of the hands, and chest.

During treatment, a handheld device passes over the skin to administer the intense pulsed light, which is absorbed by the target chromophores. Subsequently, there is a breakdown of excess pigmentation and shrinkage of damaged blood vessels, resulting in a more even skin tone.

Do IPL Photofacials Work?

Though IPL photofacial results vary between patients, the procedure does visibly improve the skin’s tone and complexion, and is best after several treatment sessions. After treatment, results may begin to appear within a few days and continue to improve over the following weeks. Once you have completed between three and six IPL photofacial treatments, the effects usually last for six to 12 months, and can be maintained with good sun protection and single treatments every 6-12 months.

Does IPL Help with Wrinkles?

IPL is designed to target and brown pigment, and address small vessels. It is not a treatment meant for reducing wrinkles.

How Many IPL Treatments are Needed for Brown Spots?

As with most non-invasive cosmetic treatments, you typically need several IPL treatments to restore skin texture and tone adequately. Patients often undergo three to six treatments to reduce brown spots with IPL treatments but may require more depending on their severity. After each IPL treatment session, brown spots gradually diminish within the next seven to 14 days but may not entirely disappear, especially if it is the first IPL session.

How Does IPL Work on Pigmentation?

IPL lasers work to decrease visible pigmentation by breaking up the excess pigmentation particles within the skin. Specifically, when the heat from the laser energy penetrates underlying dermal layers, larger pigmentation particles break down into significantly smaller sizes. As a result of the smaller particle size, your body naturally filters out excess pigmentation over time that was previously too large for visible reductions.

How Does IPL Work for Rosacea?

Rosacea results in excessive skin redness due to visible facial blood vessels, blushing, and acne for some individuals. IPL treatments reduce rosacea by damaging broken blood vessels further, causing the body to reabsorb them over time. Consequently, rosacea symptoms, including flushing and skin redness, minimize within the next three to four weeks after treatment, revealing a visibly more even skin tone.
