We Have Resumed Normal Business Hours

Our patients, team members, and their families are the center of all we do as a company. Mountain State Oral & Facial Surgery is closely monitoring guidelines from the CDC and are dedicated to keeping people safe and healthy.

We are resuming normal business hours and operations including all elective and non-elective treatments. As we re-open we want our patients to know they will see some changes in our offices including but not limited to social distancing measures, increased sanitization, increased use of PPE, and other changes. These changes are to protect our staff and patients as we are committed to serving the needs of our community during these difficult times.

We will continue to monitor this situation closely and update our response as more information is made available from the CDC. Thank you for your cooperation and understanding during this difficult time.

Stay safe and healthy, and we look forward to seeing you soon!

Intense Pulsed Light (IPL)

Intense Pulsed Light, or IPL, is designed to treat and improve the appearance of certain skin conditions, such as vascular lesions, acne, freckles, and hair removal.

Intense Pulsed Light (IPL)

IPL, or Intense Pulsed Light, is a treatment designed to treat and improve the appearance of certain skin conditions. It is also a common treatment for unwanted hair removal.

IPL is commonly used for:

  • Vascular lesions
  • Acne
  • Freckles
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Wrinkles
  • Hair removal

IPL works by using light energy to target the color pigments in the hair and skin. IPL is an outpatient procedure that produces optimal results using a non-invasive treatment. Downtime is considered minimal, and the patient can usually return to their work or activities immediately following treatment.

Am I A Good Candidate for IPL?

IPL works best on patients with dark hair and fair skin. White hairs cannot be treated because the IPL only targets the color pigments. Patients who have darker skin may be treated but will need to be thoroughly examined before the treatment begins, and we will need to proceed with caution.

Your skin type and condition, extent of procedure, and aesthetic goals will determine the results of IPL treatment. Redness and swelling are common side effects and are usually short term.
