Sunspots, age spots, pigmentation, or small facial vessels (telangiectasias) can be a constant reminder that your skin isn’t as clear as it could be. Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) is a solution to unsightly skin afflictions as small light pulses are applied to targeted areas of the skin, encouraging the growth of new, healthy skin cells.
In this procedure, an IPL machine will emit gentle pulses of light at carefully sized wavelengths in order to target the desired area. The heat and light generated by these waves is absorbed by broken capillaries, dark pigments, and collagen. These areas then coagulate and the skin is induced to procure new collagen fibers – giving the skin a renewed, youthful appearance.
During your consultation, our skin care team will discuss with you the areas you would like to treat and how IPL can be an effective treatment as part of your skin care goals.

“I was looking for a very good plastic surgeon, and among google I found Dr. Brown & Dr. Bruno to be the top doctors in the DC area. Dr. Brown did my breast reduction 3 weeks ago and I can say I am absolutely so happy with the results! He’s a very caring and friendly doctor who has years of experience, really knows what he’s doing and is detail oriented. I would recommend him to anyone in a heartbeat!”— Lily
“I was diagnosed with breast cancer in May of 2015 and chose to have a double mastectomy with breast reconstruction. My breast surgeon referred me to Dr. Brown of Bruno Brown Plastic Surgery in Chevy Chase, and after my first meeting with Dr. Coleman Brown, I knew I didn’t need to look any further! His staff greeted me with smiles and made me feel very comfortable.”— Theresa R.
“When I was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2012, I was given a peer recommendation for Dr. Bruno, and I am so grateful for it. I required a unilateral mastectomy and reconstruction, and a breast reduction. Dr. Bruno was sensitive to my insecurities and was available at any time to answer questions and provide complete explanations. His kindness and soothing demeanor was very helpful during the entire process and made me feel confident about coming out of this health crisis successfully, which I did, and with a beautifully reduced breast that shows no scar whatsoever.”— Christine F.
