Dr. Katherine Birchenough is only the fourth physician in South Carolina to be board-certified in functional medicine, and she is certified in peptide therapy, bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, emergency medicine, and pediatrics.

What is the IPL Photofacial with Icon™ Max G?
Our IPL photofacial treatment is recommended for men and women who have superficial flaws on the surface of the skin, as well as signs of aging that are caused by less collagen. The intense pulsed light of the treatment simultaneously addresses both of these concerns. You can see the results in our IPL photofacial before and after photos.
How Much Does the IPL Photofacial with Icon™ Max G Cost?
At OptimalSelf MD, we understand that you want to feel good about yourself, yet cost may be a primary consideration. We recommend that you schedule a consultation as a first step. Phone consultations are complimentary, and we charge a fee for an in-office consultation. As part of the consultation, we explain your IPL photofacial cost, and payment can be made by cash, check, and credit card. We also work with CareCredit® and Alphaeon® to offer our patients financing options.
Who is a Good Candidate for the IPL Photofacial with Icon™ Max G?
Dr. Shawn recommends the IPL photofacial for men and women with specific skin issues, such as hyperpigmentation (dark spots and patches), spider veins, acne, and broken capillaries (small blood vessels just below the surface of the skin).
What Can I Expect During the Treatment with IPL Photofacial with Icon™ Max G?
Dr. Shawn applies a cream to your skin that numbs the area. The intense pulsed light is administered in short bursts, and you may feel a slightly warm sensation in the deeper layers of skin.
How Long Will It Take Me to Recover from the Treatment with IPL Photofacial with Icon™ Max G?
IPL photofacial recovery is relatively short-term. For the first day, your skin may look slightly red and have some mild swelling. Your skin should look normal within a few days of the procedure. The results of your IPL photofacial with Icon™ Max G begin to appear after one week. The dark spots and veins are less visible. After six weeks, you see a noticeable boost in collagen which tightens the skin to reduce wrinkles and lines.
Can I Schedule a Consultation for Treatment with IPL Photofacial with Icon™ Max G?
If you want skin that looks healthy and younger, we invite you to schedule a complimentary 15-minute phone consultation with Dr. Shawn, or you can schedule an in-office consultation for a fee.
