As you age, the body naturally loses subcutaneous cat causing you to appear older. Since the muscles are closer to the surface of the skin fine lines, wrinkles, and folds can emerge on your face. As you age the body produces less elastin and collagen causing the skin to lose its natural firmness and begin to sag. Whether your cosmetic insecurities are due to sun damage, genetics, or aging dermal fillers are an effective treatment to bring life to your natural features.

What is IPL Laser Treatment?

Intense pulsed light therapy or a photo facial is a cosmetic treatment to help improve the appearance of your skin. IPL laser treatment can reduce visible signs of aging caused by UV exposure also known as photoaging. This improved the overall tone and texture of the skin through a non-invasive light therapy treatment. The laser heats targeted cells, signaling the body to get rid of the damaged cells. IPL sends out multiple wavelengths of pulsating light to treat multiple skin issues simultaneously. IPL treatment can make you look younger by diminishing damaged cells from your appearance.

IPL Laser Candidates

Candidates for IPL laser treatment should be in generally good health, should not smoke, and must have realistic expectations for their treatment. Ideal candidates include but are not limited to individuals wanting to target the following issues:

  • Acne
  • Birthmarks
  • Rosacea
  • Age spots
  • Mild wrinkles
  • Scars
  • Spider veins
  • Unwanted hair

The best way to determine if you are an ideal candidate for IPL laser treatment is through a one-on-one consultation with one of our skin specialists at 5th Avenue Plastic Surgery.

The IPL Laser Treatment

Your treatment will begin with a technician giving you numbing gel to apply to the area beforehand. Your specialist will then begin applying gel onto your cleansed treatment area. You will be given protective eyewear to shield your eyes from the lasers. The device will then be gently pressed against your skin, targeting your predetermined areas. IPL sessions last 30 minutes for a small session and 60 minutes for a larger laser session.

IPL Laser Recovery

After IPL treatment you may feel sunburn-like symptoms for 4-6 hours. Cold therapy can help to diminish any discomfort. You may experience mild bruising for a few days. Areas of darker pigmentation may turn darker before peeling off within a few weeks. It is important to avoid irritating the skin with makeup, skincare products, and other irritants for up to a week after treatment. Most patients receive between three and seven IPL laser sessions spaced two to four weeks apart to achieve their desired results. Your results may take weeks for you to notice.

I had Such an Incredible Experience with Iliana!

I had such an incredible experience with Iliana! I was so nervous to get Botox because I was afraid it was going to be a painful experience but I was pleasantly surprised. She is truly an artist! Not only was it absolutely painless but I am the type of person that bruises like a banana so I was expecting a face full of tiny bruises as this was my first time. I woke up the next morning with no bruising at all! She is so incredibly talented and makes the process quick, painless and educational. I am so happy with my results!
