IPL Photofacial Skin Care Treatments in Seattle

We employ Intense Pulsed Light technology to eliminate chronic redness in the skin caused by rosacea, hyper-pigmentation, photodamage, and broken blood vessels.

There are a variety of things that cause an unwelcome pigmentation or redness in the skin, but the good news is that many of them are effectively treatable with Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) therapy, including:

  • Broken capillaries
  • Light acne scars
  • Hyper-pigmentation caused by years spent in the sun
  • Chronic diffused redness caused by rosacea
  • Irregular pigmentation caused by photodamaged skin
  • Hyper-pigmentation that’s a result of the aging process

IPL Photofacial™ skincare treatments in the Seattle and Bellevue areas employ intense pulsed light to reduce or eliminate the physical symptoms of rosacea, hyper-pigmentation, photodamage, and chronic redness in the skin.

How Does It Work?

IPL therapy improves the superficial outer layer of the skin—and, for that matter, the deeper layers of the skin as well—by normalizing the tissue in the epidermis. It also stimulates the formation of new collagen in your body, thereby significantly reducing the appearance of fine lines, shrinking pore size, and increasing the elasticity of the skin (collagen is your skin’s natural wonder drug in this regard).

During treatment, the IPL leaves healthy skin unharmed but is absorbed by the darker, damaged tissue. The pigmentation is gradually brought to the surface of the skin, where it flakes off over a period of the subsequent couple of weeks following treatment.

At the Larrabee Center MedSpa in Seattle, we typically recommend a series of five treatments for optimal results with most skin types.

IPL Photofacial involves a non-ablative laser, specially designed to seek out darker pigments in the skin, including redness, discolored spots, and dark acne scars. The procedure itself involves a mild snapping sensation—and with each snap, the intense pulsed light is going deep into the skin, eliminating the problem at the source. The color and texture of your skin will continue to get better and better for weeks after your treatment.

Each treatment session will last less than an hour, and afterward you’ll be free and clear to go straight back to your daily schedule without much, if any, downtime. For these reasons, many people choose to schedule IPL treatments at the Larrabee Center during their lunch hour.

Important Notice

Our Aesthetic Center is set for a soft reopening Monday, May 18th! 

We are thrilled to announce the soft opening of our aesthetic center on May 18th, 2020 in compliance with Governor Jay Inslee’s proclamation (20-05-20-24) of elective cosmetic medical procedures being restricted up until this date. We will not be resuming full activity of The Larrabee Center right away. 

Suite 385 Covid-19 Updates:

 Below you will find actions we have taken to ensure that you are protected and that we maintain Suite 385 as a Non-Covid Care (NCC) Zone:

Please be advised with the soft opening, our hours, providers, appointment availability and staff will be reduced to avoid unnecessary exposure. We fully understand that this will result in some inconvenience in the short term, but it is essential we do everything in our power to ensure the safety of our patient, and our staff.

We ask that if you are calling to reschedule an appointment from March, April, or early May, please be patient until our front desk coordinators reach out to you as we have limited staff working diligently for reopening and the phone lines are overwhelmed with calls.

Washington State Department of Health (DOH), World Health Organization (WHO) and Centers for Disease Control (CDC) share information about COVID-19 at:


The health and well-being of our patients and staff are so important to us. Our providers and support staff appreciate all your love and support for them during this time. We thank you and look forward to seeing you soon!
