IPL Photorejuvenation - An Overview
Intense pulsed light (IPL) photorejuvenation, or a "photo facial" as it's often referred to as, provides a safe, straightforward, and non-invasive means of correcting a variety of benign skin conditions, including:
- Spider veins
- Age spots
- Sun damage
- Mottled pigmentation
- Broken capillaries
This non-invasive treatment works by delivering a specific range of light wavelengths gently into the skin, via light pulses. The emitted light pulses are then absorbed either superficially by broken capillaries and dark pigment, or by deeper and larger vessels and collagen. Through this process of light absorption, dilated capillaries coagulate, pigmented lesions darken and slough off, and new collagen fibers are produced, giving the skin a revitalized, healthier, more youthful appearance. Many patients report a reduction in pore size, smoother skin, and less wrinkles following IPL photorejuvenation. Treatments at our New York practice are gentle, as we understand that comfort is a priority for our patients. IPL treatment is accomplished over four to six sessions and offers gradual results with little or no downtime or side effects.
IPL Treatment Process
As IPL treatment is intended to provide gradual results, treatment is typically spread out over several months. In general, four to six treatment sessions, separated by two to three weeks, are employed for best results. Each session lasts approximately 30 minutes, during which the treatment area is exposed to the Lumenis® IPL photorejuvenation tool. An intense pulsed light (different from a laser) is applied to the skin to promote collagen production, shrink blood vessels, and lighten pigmentation through infrared energy. A cooling technology is incorporated into the device so that the patient remains comfortable throughout the procedure.
Once complete, the patient can return to their daily activities, as there is little to no recovery time necessary. Though you will notice changes immediately, full results won't be visible until the treatment has been completed. Depending on your needs, your final session may occur several months after your first, though in-between sessions, you can enjoy your daily life without any hindrances.
Quite simply, undergoing IPL photorejuvenation treatment at our Great Neck, New York practice can help you look years, if not decades younger. The impact this change can have on your self-esteem and self-confidence can be long-lasting and affect all aspects of your life, including personal and professional relationships. And because the treatment is non-invasive, there is no downtime or recovery, and risks are minor and easily prevented. If you want to correct or treat fine lines, pigment discoloration, red blotches, course skin, loss of skin tone, sun damage, or Rosacea, then IPL photorejuvenation may provide the ideal solution.
