Our IPL Photofacial utilizes Intense Pulsed Light for a gentle treatment that is safe, painless, and requires no significant recovery time. IPL sends light through the skin to target the undesirable tissue, and leaves the surrounding tissue unharmed. The process is gradual and, therefore, more gentle than traditional laser therapies. The IPL Photofacial treats many skin conditions including:
The treatment normally takes about five sessions and results begin to appear after one or two sessions. IPL targets red or brown skin cells and destroys them while leaving the surrounding lighter cells unharmed. During this process, collagen production is stimulated, rejuvenating the skin, shrinking pores, and filling in fine lines and indentations. The result is healthier, younger looking skin.
During your free initial consultation, Dr. Rivkin will evaluate your unique needs and explain the procedure in detail. You will have the opportunity to view before and after photos, so that you will know what to expect from the treatment. After your treatment Dr. Rivkin will instruct you on the best techniques to care for your skin to maintain your new healthy look.
