IPL to the Rescue!

Posted on June 25, 2013 by Dr Elenora Fedoneko

There’s no denying that playing in the sun is wreaking havoc on our skin. Sun or age spots, over any area of skin that is over-exposure to the sun, are especially major concerns in So. California and Florida. However, they also affect sun-worshippers everywhere.

And there are other pigmentation problems that detract from the look of clear, fresh and youthful skin: redness, Rosacea, light acne scars, broken capillaries, spider veins, hyperpigmentation and other skin conditions cause distress and, actually, embarrassment for millions of people of all ages and genders.

IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) Photofacial laser treatments to the rescue. Simply stated, a strong wavelength of light is targeted on the affected skin and absorbs the undesirable melatonin (the color-creating substance) from the area. Fast, easy, effective. And while discomfort levels vary from person to person, IPL Photofacial procedures are usually performed with a topical anesthethic and are considered virtually painless. A slight sting with each pulse is the usual description.

Depending upon the size of the area being treated – face, neck, chest, hands – and the severity of the condition, three to five IPL treatments are usually required, spaced about 4 weeks apart. The treatment time is about 30 minutes with no down time following each session. Side effects are also minimal and the possible skin reddening will disappear within a few hours and may be covered with makeup.

Sound good? It is. Effective? Most definitely. When can I start? How about today!
