IPL (Intense Pulsed Light)

Here in southwest Florida, many of us know all too well the damaging effects of long-term sun exposure. Blotches, spots, freckles, and more can be hard to cover up with makeup and may make us look older than we feel. At our med spa, intense pulsed light (IPL) treatments help skin care patients from Naples, Fort Myers, and other Florida communities reduce some evidence of past beach days for noticeably clearer, healthy looking skin.

If you are considering an IPL treatment at our Naples cosmetic center, we invite you to request a consultation online for more information or to schedule your consultation. You can also call our office at  (239) 262-5662.

Who Is a Good Candidate?

IPL is best suited for skin that’s discolored or blotchy as the result of age, sun exposure, or certain medical conditions. IPL can effectively treat:

  • Freckles and sun spots
  • Blotchiness
  • Age spots
  • Uneven pigmentation
  • Redness caused by broken capillaries

Although IPL can yield beautiful results on spots and color irregularities, it is not intended to treat loose skin, wrinkles, or fine lines. For patients who’d like to target these concerns, other treatments, such as injectables or FaceTite nonsurgical skin tightening may be more suitable options. You may consider Lumenis® fractional laser treatments instead of IPL for more dramatic results with a single treatment (recovery for this treatment is longer). Cutera® Excel® V & Laser GenesisCutera® Excel V™ treatments are a no-downtime alternative to IPL that addresses the same concerns as well as unsightly leg veins. Dr. Hasen and his physician assistant, Brandie, have the knowledge necessary to get your skin glowing.

Need Help Finding the Right Treatment?

When it comes to medical spa treatments, your choices are plentiful…and possibly overwhelming. Our interactive treatment planner can help. Just select the skin condition you want to address, and you’ll see a list of possible treatment options. Having beautiful skin has never been so easy.

Plan Your Treatment

The Technology

  • For our IPL treatments—sometimes referred to as a photo facial—our Naples cosmetic center uses Lumecca by InMode Optimus.
  • This IPL technology is optimized to treat facial pigmentation, superficial vessels, improve skin texture, and repair skin damage caused by the sun.
  • Most patients get the desired results in 2 or 3 treatments rather than the 4 to 6 treatments needed with standard IPL treatment technologies.
  • The large spot size and rapid pulsing of the light energy reduce treatment time.
  • A sapphire cooling tip creates enhanced comfort during the treatment.

Meet Brandie

Our one-of-a-kind, board-certified physician assistant combines her medical training with extensive aesthetic training to provide nonsurgical treatments ranging from injectables and laser skin resurfacing to CoolSculpting® and Ultherapy®. Our patients love Brandie!

Get to know Brandie

The Procedure

  • Most people find IPL treatments to be fairly comfortable. Many people describe it as feeling like a light pinch or tingle.
  • Most treatments last between 30 minutes and 1 hour.
  • A qualified member of our medical staff first cleanses and applies a cooling gel to the targeted area of the skin.
  • Dr. Hasen or Brandie then delivers pulses of light to the skin through the IPL handpiece.
  • Patients may return home immediately following their IPL treatments.

The Result

  • Most patients return to their regular activities immediately after treatment, although skin may temporarily appear red and swollen.
  • Patients may wear makeup during the healing process.
  • In many cases, discoloration intensifies as pigment is pulled to the skin’s surface before fading.
  • The final results of an IPL treatment gradually reveal themselves over the course of a few weeks.
  • In many cases, patients may require a series of several treatments to achieve their best results. Dr. Hasen and Brandie work with each patient to help him or her determine which option is best. Multiple treatments are typically spaced about 3 weeks apart.

I went to this Medspa after being badly bruised at another place in town. Brandie was fantastic! I had filler in a few places and she placed it so beautifully with expertise and obvious knowledge. It looks very natural and I was completely comfortable the entire time. The office staff is so friendly and kind. Great first experience here.

I had a breast revision done with Dr. Hasen, replacing round implants for larger Ideal Implants. I had a great experience and amazing results. Dr. Hasen is extremely talented but he is also easy to talk to. He has an amazing staff and his facility is beautiful. I’ve also had Botox and facials done at his Medical spa and it’s always a great experience. I highly recommend Dr. Hasen.

Dr. Hasen is an exceedingly talented surgeon. I had a breast revision done in July 2021, where I had my round saline implants replaced with larger Ideal implants. I had an amazing experience from the start and got amazing results. Dr. Hasen is very down to earth and listened to my concerns and questions. He also has a very professional and friendly staff. I’ve also had Botox and facials done at his facility. It’s always an enjoyable experience when I visit his Med-Spa. I highly recommend Dr. Hasen.

Dr. Hasen and staff are absolutely wonderful! I had a 360 Tummy Tuck, Lower Body Lift, Liposuction, and fat grafting ( BBL ) three months ago. The results are fantastic! After pregnancies, weight gain, and then losing 80 pounds this Mommy Makeover was definitely needed. Throughout the whole process they made me feel secure, comfortable, and cared about. Dr. Hasen is truly an artist. I’ve never felt more confident, beautiful, and thrilled with the way I look! Thank you Dr. Hasen, and staff!

After many consultations, and months of researching, I decided it was time for a tummy tuck. Dr. Kent Hasen and his staff made my decision so easy. I spoke with 4 other local plastic surgeons, and I picked the best! I love how confident Dr. Hasen is. His entire staff is so kind, knowledgeable, and very communicative. I never felt like I asked too many questions or was a bother with a phone call. I chose Dr. Hasen based on other patients experiences, his talent as a surgeon, his confidence, his staff, and his surgery center. I was very important for me to go to a surgery center that was owned and operated by Dr. Hasen as I did not want to "share space" with others having surgery. His entire building is so clean and they went above and beyond to make sure I felt safe and healthy during this crazy time with Covid. I appreciated the pre- surgery phone calls from the patient coordinator and the nurse anesthetist. I had a fabulous experience and highly recommend Dr. Kent Hasen.

I had an amazing experience here! I had a micro peel done, along with dermaplaning, to help clear up some acne scaring. My services were done by Nicole, who explained every step of my service which allowed me to be knowledge, which I loved. Definitely recommend coming here and seeing Nicole!

Nicole is the sweetest, kindest, most educated esthetician I've ever been to. She has improved my skin so much since I've been going to her. From her knowledge on products to her service recommendations, hands down, the BEST! She offers great customer service, does an excellent job and my skin has never looked better. I will always go to her for as long as she is an esthetician. 5 STARS

Dr. Hasen and staff are amazing! When entering the office you can tell there is a calm, peaceful and welcoming atmosphere. After pregnancy and breast feeding two babies I decided to have a breast augmentation. Dr. Hasen listened to my concerns and what I wanted to have done. After consulting with Dr. Hasen I knew there was no reason to consult other offices. I also have an internal defibrillator due to past heart issue so going under made me nervous but after talking with Wendy the anesthesiologist in detail I felt 100% comfortable. There was NO doubting at all. From front staff, clinical and surgical staff all did an amazing job in taking care of me. Dr. Hasen did exactly what I wanted and I couldn't have asked for a better surgeon to do the work!

Dr. Hasen is the BEST Plastic Surgeon! 9 months ago I had a bilateral earlobe repair and couldn't be happier! I hated how I wasn't able to wear earrings anymore because my earring hole was so stretched out. Recently I was able to have my ears re-pierced. I had this procedure done under just local anesthetic and felt no pain what so ever. The staff was all very professional and sweet. I would highly recommend Dr.Hasen and his staff to anyone seeking any cosmetic needs!!!

I was very nervous going in for my consultation for a breast augmentation. However, from the moment I walked in the door I knew I had selected the right practice. The staff was caring and informative and Dr. Hasen was very personal. I booked my surger and I am so pleased with the results and post-op care!

There is no other way to say this outside of Dr. Hasen just “gets it”. Whether you need to take a plane, train or automobile...run, walk or crawl, you need to see Dr. Hasen. I started my rhinoplasty research journey after a fall which resulted in the shattering of my nose. It was such a monumental decision and I could not find anyone that made me feel comfortable or confident in their ability. From the first consult with him I was immediately put at ease and KNEW he would be my surgeon. I made my rhinoplasty appointment that day . Dr. Hasen is nothing short of a magician of plastic surgery. Facility and attached surgical center is clean and the décor is beautiful. Very thorough pre and post op care. Never felt rushed or unsure of the processes. Not only professional, caring, down to earth, and skilled, the results are absolutely flawless. If you’re considering a procedure or surgery (of any kind) you owe it to yourself to schedule a consult with him. I can promise you, he will EXCEED your expectations. Not to mention his entire staff of nurses, anesthesiologists, and front and back office are sensational. Thank you Bethany, Marie , Denisha, Jen, and Wendy:) If there were 10 stars I’d give him 11. I would highly recommend this entire practice.

Dr. Hasen and his staff are amazing! I felt so comfortable and welcomed from my consultation all the way till the day of my surgery! Dr.Hasens assistant Marie was so patient and helpful. She made my experience so rewarding. All of the staff there is just perfect. The front desk receptionist are sweet and patient. Dr. Hasens group of nurses and surgical techs and anesthesiologist were amazing! I have to give credit to where it is due! The whole staff was such a rewarding and safe feeling. They answered all my questions from beginning to end. They got back to me always right away. My surgeon Dr. Kent V Hasen listened to everything I wanted done. I had a Brazilian Butt Lift with Liposuction to my lower abdomen. I am in love with my new body! He was not only incredible with my surgery. Dr.Hasen was patient and caring for all my needs. I recommend anyone interested in any work to not think twice but to think of Dr.Hasen. I am so grateful and in love with my results!! Thank you so much to you and your wonderful team and staff you have behind you. A blessing.
