The Treatment Process
Typically, five sessions or more are required to accomplish the best results from your IPL photofacial. During each treatment, you will be provided with protective glasses that will shield your eyes from the flashing light used. Dr. Greenberg or a member of our team will then apply a cool gel to help the handheld device move more easily.
A member of our team will send quick pulses of the special light into the skin which may cause your skin to feel warm or as if it has been lightly snapped with a rubber band. These pulses of light will gently heat the tissues, stimulating your body’s natural healing process to remove unwanted pigment and signs of aging. The length of treatment is dependent upon size of the target area and type of concern being addressed. Generally, one session can range from 20 minutes to an hour, after which you can return to your daily activities.
After Your Procedure
Your skin may appear mildly red and feel warm to the touch after your session, but this should fade quickly. To achieve the best results, you must avoid sun exposure in the days following a photo rejuvenation session and apply plenty of sunblock for at least two weeks. Many patients will rotate IPL photofacials with other non-surgical solutions to achieve much brighter, more supple skin. Our team can help you coordinate your treatments to achieve the best results safely and comfortably.
