(Intense Pulsed Light)
Hyperpigmentation, freckles, rosacea, sun spots, and dynamic wrinkles are all curable with intense pulsed light, or IPL, a current photofacial therapy.
Intense pulsed light (IPL)
Whether you’re concerned about the appearance of your face skin due to sun damage, fine wrinkles, or dark spots, Hebe Medical Spa in Latham, NY may do a skin analysis to see if you’re a candidate for IPL (intense pulsed light) therapy. Adult men and women with hyperpigmentation or wrinkle concerns on their neck and face might benefit from a photofacial with IPL. A photofacial is a noninvasive procedure that may be extremely successful and produce excellent results. Dr. Zainab Mogul-Ashraf, a cosmetic specialist, employs Cutera LimeLight technology to heat the skin cells and activate the natural healing process while also increasing collagen synthesis. You should see a healthier skin with enhanced tone and fewer dark patches over time. To discover more, contact our MedSpa now.
With low or no downtime, IPL accesses the deeper layers of your skin to treat a variety of complexion issues (especially brown lesions and sun spots). Candidates for IPL at Hebe Medical Spa will have rosacea, sun damage, brown spots (hyperpigmentation), rough texture, wrinkles, visible pores, redness, freckles, melasma, age spots, or broken capillaries, among other issues. During your initial visit, Dr. Zainab will check your complexion to see if IPL is right for you.
What To Expect?
With an IPL photofacial treatment, there is typically no downtime, although your skin may be somewhat red and puffy when you leave our facility. This will fade gradually as the day progresses, or you can conceal it with cosmetics if you choose. To avoid irritation and enhance healing, Hebe Medical Spa recommends applying a cream to the skin’s surface. It may also be beneficial to take an over-the-counter anti-inflammatory to assist reduce swelling.
Sun damage and other anomalies under the skin will ascend to the surface skin layers over the period of 2–5 days and then begin to peel away. Following an IPL photofacial treatment, you should use sunscreen as much as possible and avoid picking at your skin. While you will see some changes after your initial treatment, it will take numerous IPL sessions to get your desired results. Dr. Zainab recommends that most patients have 3–6 monthly visits at Hebe Medical Spa.
If no further treatments are needed, IPL can be completed in our Latham, NY medspa in 20–30 minutes in our minor operations area. Your technician will wash and dry your face before applying special laser shields to your eyes to prepare for the IPL facial. The IPL procedure is carried out with the use of a portable wand that passes over the skin while producing laser light pulses. While many patients experience slight discomfort during the IPL procedure, it is typically tolerable due to the brief treatment time.
