At Derma Cosmedica, we provide a wide menu of cosmetic services to help patients turn back the clock on aging- both in how they look and how they feel about themselves. One of our most popular services is IPL facials. IPL facials are an excellent option to pursue if you want to improve the tone and texture of the skin on your face and neck. If you are interested in this non-invasive treatment option for concealing brown spots, acne scars, sun spots, and small facial veins, learn the answers to frequently asked questions about IPL facials below:
How does an IPL Facial work?
An IPL Facial utilizes highly concentrated and intense beams of light to target blemishes and lesions on your skin. The pulses of light target unwanted pigment and reduce the effects of aging. Perfect for improving the color and texture of your skin without surgery, the IPL Facial is designed to undo some of the visible damage caused by sun exposure to your face and neck. As the light heats your skin, the blemishes disappear. Not to be confused with laser skin treatments, the IPL facial releases more than one wavelength of pulsating light.
Are IPL Facials safe?
Yes, IPL facials are safe and effective. Most patients report little to no pain or discomfort during the procedure. Dr. Joseph Guarino is an experienced, board certified physician who has been practicing in the Hamilton, New Jersey area for over seventeen years. You can trust that you are in good hands when you visit our Hamilton, NJ medical spa for an IPL facial and other cosmetic procedures.
What should I expect during my IPL Facial appointment?
Once you arrive, Dr. Guarino will offer you a pair of safety glasses to wear during the procedure. The handheld IPL device will go right on your skin in the affected areas. You will briefly feel a warming sensation as the heat from the light is absorbed by the target areas. The light will stimulate your skin cells to generate new collagen and reduce any pigment lesions. Procedures can last anywhere from a few minutes to an hour depending on the size of the area being treated. Once complete, you may experience some redness, but this should resolve within a few hours.
