Your aesthetic specialist uses the Harmony® XL PRO laser by Alma to perform IPL photofacials that create impressive outcomes for our Frisco, TX, patients. Schedule a skin analysis at our office today to determine if this option can help you achieve your cosmetic goals.
As a non-invasive procedure, an IPL photofacial utilizes a special device that delivers flashing pulses of light into the skin. This process helps to stimulate the natural collagen regeneration process and produce a smoother, more even skin tone with fewer spots. The Harmony® XL Pro enhances the skin's surface texture, resulting in skin that appears and feels younger.
Harmony XL Pro Laser treatments was created by Alma Lasers, an industry leader in skin rejuvenation, and is an excellent answer for numerous aesthetic issues. It addresses a wide range of skin concerns, is effective practically everywhere on the body with minimal to no downtime, and is safe and effective for all skin types and tones.
Versatile and Long-Lasting
Yes! IPL Laser is highly effective in treating many skin concerns and can be used strategically to achieve your skincare goals. Anyone who wants to improve their complexion is a good candidate. Common Concerns treated with IPL:
Pigmented epidermal lesions:
Cutaneous vascular lesions:
To prepare you for treatment with the IPL laser Frisco patients are usually asked to avoid sun exposure and self-tanners for two to four weeks before their appointment. You may be asked to discontinue the use of certain medications and topical creams, like Retin-A and photosensitive medications, several days before each procedure. We may recommend avoiding taking anti-inflammatory medications and blood thinners a week before your treatment to decrease your risk of bruising. Once thoroughly prepped, your treatment will begin. You may feel light, hot snapping as the laser moves over your skin. Once the treatment is complete, we apply medical-grade skincare products to the area for additional soothing and healing.
A Treat for Your Skin
The recovery process of an IPL patient varies from patient to patient. Typically, you can experience some redness for one to two days. In more aggressive treatments, the recovery time is slightly longer with minor swelling.
Expect Younger, Brighter Skin
Visible skin improvements can be noticed following each Harmony XL PRO IPL treatment, but final results are usually noticeable about a month after all of your treatments are done. It’s normal for you to see different results following each session. You should have a gradual improvement in redness, blotchiness, age spots, melasma, vascularity, and sunspots over time.

Most men and women notice minor, temporary side effects, such as swelling, redness, blisters, crusting, or bruising. These symptoms naturally subside within a day or two after the procedure. The treated areas will be sun-sensitive, and excessive exposure to damaging UV rays can impact the results of the procedure. We also recommend using sunscreen to help avoid skin damage.

"Dr. Ricks is a great doctor! He’s compassionate and understanding. He also takes time to listen to what I have to say instead of trying to rush me out, which is very important. He also takes time to call to check on me after the many surgeries that I have had, and that says a lot. Dr. Ricks goes above and beyond for his patients. A doctor that goes that extra mile and still has time to run a full time business says a lot. THANK YOU, DR.RICKS."

"Dr. Ricks is by far the best OBGYN out there. From the first appointment, he has been great. His bedside manner is amazing, and he is truly knowledgeable and will spend the time with you to be sure you understand what’s going on, too. He will go above and beyond for his patients and has personally done that for me, as well as a couple of my friends that see him too. The office staff and clinical team are also top-notch…You’re not just another number to any of them. Hands down, the best office."
