Our experienced aesthetic skin care professionals at the office of Dr. Fredric Newman can rejuvenate your facial appearance by harnessing the power of light.
An IPL photofacial performed at our Darien, CT , practice can be used to give you what’s called a photofacial. This treatment can reduce signs of age, improve areas of pigmentation, and give your skin a more youthful, even-toned appearance.
Provided as one of several non-invasive alternatives to the traditional facelift, IPL therapy is designed to rejuvenate facial skin. Like microdermabrasion or skin resurfacing, it is most commonly recommended to diminish signs of wrinkles, dark circles under the eyes, and common skin conditions such as rosacea, redness, hyperpigmentation, and even dilated blood vessels.
However, unlike these other treatments, IPL uses lasers rather than a mechanical abrasion. Concentrated beams of light are guided across facial areas in a completely non-invasive procedure. The energy that is focused onto the skin only penetrates the top layers, helping to treat skin conditions at the source and result in a more refreshed look and a more even tone to the skin. Our Fairfield County IPL procedures usually take no longer than 30 minutes to complete and there is typically very little discomfort associated with the treatment.
Although there may be some redness in the treatment areas after IPL therapy Connecticut patients do not usually require any recovery time and are able to resume normal daily activities immediately.
A series of treatment sessions may be necessary to achieve the desired results. The effects of IPL therapy should become even more apparent in the ensuing months as the skin replenishes itself. This treatment has helped many patients rejuvenate their facial appearance and achieve a more youthful, smoother look to the skin. Most patients do not require any recovery time and are able to resume normal daily activities immediately.
An IPL photofacial can provide a dramatic reduction in wrinkles and other signs of aging.
However, it is not right for all patients. If you have lost significant skin laxity with age, or if you have excess fatty tissue and sagging skin you wish to correct, surgery may be the best solution.
Dr. Newman provides a variety of facelift procedures that can correct pronounced signs of aging. On the other hand, if yo wish to address the very earliest signs of aging, such as fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes, you may be able to achieve your goals with injectable treatments such as dermal fillers. However, if you still have adequate skin laxity and only require a relatively moderate enhancement, you may be an excellent candidate for an IPL photofacial. During a consultation, Dr. Newman can assess your candidacy.
