IPL in Seattle, WA

IPL or Intense Pulsed Light is a diverse laser treatment that allows our patients to reduce their signs of aging, address sun damage, or even permanently reduce unwanted hair growth in their treated areas.

This all-in-one treatment has quickly become a fan-favorite for its minimally invasive process and minimal recovery period.

What is IPL?

Intense Pulsed Light therapy or IPL treatments are minimally invasive laser treatments that use quick bursts of light energy to treat a variety of concerns.

What makes IPL treatments different from traditional laser treatments is that they’re non-ablative, meaning they can penetrate to the deeper layers of the skin without harming your uppermost layer. The light used to target your problem areas is drawn to intense pigment, making it a great treatment for sun damage, broken blood vessels, dark spots, rosacea, and more.

This pigment-finding light therapy also allows for patients with dark hair and fair skin to target individual hair follicles and permanently reduce hair growth under their arms, on areas of their face, or even in their more intimate areas.

What Does IPL Treat?

IPL therapy is most commonly used to treat:

  • Sunspots
  • Age spots
  • Birth marks
  • Freckles
  • Unwanted hair
  • Rosacea
  • Varicose veins

How IPL is Performed

Each IPL treatment is performed in one of the private treatment rooms at the La Belle Vie MedSpa. Before your treatment begins, your skin will be cleaned and a topical anesthetic may be applied to your treatment area. We may also provide you with protective glasses to wear throughout your treatment.

Once comfortable, your aesthetics professional will begin applying bursts of IPL laser technology to the surface of your treatment areas. Most patients find this treatment tolerable, with each pulse feeling similar to a rubber band being snapped against the skin. The pulsed light will be applied evenly across the treatment area to ensure the best possible results.

This entire treatment process typically takes less than an hour to complete.

IPL Results

After your IPL treatment, your skin will likely be red and tender similar to the sensation of a sunburn. This is normal and side effects typically resolve on their own within a week or two of treatment. We may recommend wearing medical-grade SPF on your treated areas while your skin heals from your IPL treatment.

While some results will be visible immediately, ultimate results will appear once all swelling and redness subsides, about two weeks following treatment. We may recommend receiving a series of treatments spaced several weeks apart for ultimate results.

Schedule Your Consultation

To learn more about how IPL treatments can benefit you, we encourage you to contact us and schedule your private consultation with one of our aesthetic professionals. We’ll be happy to sit down with you, listen to your concerns, and develop a personalized treatment plan to help you get the look you desire.

Had the pleasure of meeting Lynn, and her staff. They were professional and knowledgeable regarding the procedures. Lynn was exceptionally reassuring and explained throughout the procedure what was to be expected. Her calm demeanor shows her expertise in what she does and would put any person’s nervousness as ease. Would highly recommend and truly appreciate the care.

I have been going for a year now to La Belle Vie Medspa and I can't say anything except they started great, and have only gotten better.Their staff are knowledgeable, and the tox injections and lip filler have been great. They are careful, professional and quick. The results have been fantastic and they never try to upsell either.One other thing that is important to me is acceptance by the staff. As a transgender woman, I am very wary of places, but the staff here have been nothing but kind and accepted me without question. The place is definitely LGBTQIA friendly!I can't recommend them enough. Thank you La Belle for everything!

I have been getting Botox here lately. As a man, I was skeptical about how much it would do for me, but I was wrong. Turns out at the age of 50, Botox evaporated all my angry brow lines, and I look quite a bit better.The staff were amazing. Jacinda at the front unfailingly tracks my points, and alerts my wife and I to any deals that are available. We now buy and bank our Botox in advance when there are sales.The current nurse is amazing. Very, very painless. She also has a very artistic eye, and for treatments. I trust her completely.It's been an amazing experience, and my only regret is not going earlier.As a note, my wife and I are both transgender, and the staff are incredibly respectful. More than that, they just treat us like everyone else. I am recommending them to my other trans friends because the experience was so good.

I had such a wonderful experience at La Belle! I received an Aqua-facial + dermaplane from Crystalyn. To enhance my experience even more, she suggested the Egyptian Rose mask which I felt made all the difference in my skin's moisture retention. The medSpa's interior aesthetic is calming and serene. I highly recommend booking @ La Belle Vie for your next spa visit!

Overpriced for Botox and filler. Too expensive on everything they offer to do. Doesn't even last more than one month. Other places I have gotten Botox, dysport, fillers n etc. last at least 6 months. Nobody in the office, told me that if I had subscribed to mail, then I would get special offers, discounts, promotions & deals. Then I would have totally done the mail subscription! They told me that there will no longer be any discounts, promotions, specials on any services that they provide. They use to run good deals/specials/discounts on Botox-dysport & fillers. And use to have a sweet Filipino nurse downstairs that would do the injections and she was great at doing it too. Now, since she's no longer doing that for the customers, the results you get, don't even look any different. How I know, I do a before and after photos. Even I wait two weeks after, people tell me that my face looks the same. I even referred multiple friends and coworkers to this place. I was so embarrassed, because they told me that they felt cheated by me and LaBelle Vie Spa. Do to it being way too expensive, especially not getting good results with their Botox n fillers. They were unhappy and upset.

I knew I was in good hands from the moment I walked into the office. It was such a welcoming atmosphere, and despite being nervous as a first time client, I felt all of that melt away. Jacinda was so sweet as she checked me in, and Dr. Fombu was incredibly friendly as she guided me through the process. She is incredibly knowledgable and her work speaks for itself. She sees beauty in all of her clients and is somehow able to bring that out in the work she does. I will certainly be back and would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone.
