At Sistine Medispa, we are dedicated to offering the most innovative and cutting-edge skincare solutions in Pittsburgh without sacrificing your health, safety, or wellbeing. All of our state-of-the-art treatments are performed under the guidance of Dr. Leong, board certified facial plastic surgeon who employs a conservative approach to minimize bruising, swelling, and discomfort. 

Each of Dr. Leong’s meticulously trained practitioners is genuinely focused on your needs and best interests, unlike at so many corporately owned spas where the client is just another faceless number. Our team will ensure you receive a procedure that is finely tailored to your skin type, as well as your comfort level and busy lifestyle.

The IPL photofacial is just one tool in Dr. Leong’s impressive non-surgical arsenal for helping to reverse facial aging, acne scarring, and hyperpigmentation. You will receive a comprehensive analysis of your skin so our team can identify the exact areas that need the most improvement.

What is an IPL photofacial?

Using high-intensity broad spectrum wavelengths, IPL performs photo-rejuvenation to help treat a variety of stubborn skin conditions including acne scarring, rosacea, sun damage, hyperpigmentation, and an uneven skin tone. 

Our medical-grade laser emits carefully controlled light pulses that improve your complexion while protecting the undamaged skin cells. Collagen stores are replenished, thanks to the gentle heating process of IPL, which restores a youthful, hydrated glow. Treatments take 30 minutes or less, and can be performed at three-week intervals for best results. Four or five sessions is typically ideal.

Very knowledgeable, detailed physician. Explained exactly what he would be doing in great detail. Good bed-side manner, very kind soul. Both Dr. Leong and his staff followed up after my procedure to ensure that all was okay. Highly recommended.
