IPL® Photofacial in New Jersey
The IPL® Photofacial is a unique facial rejuvenation treatment ideal for addressing hyperpigmentation and other discoloration in the skin. At The Peer Group for Plastic Surgery, we offer this and other laser treatments to the residents of Morristown and Livingston, NJ.
What is an IPL® Photofacial?
The IPL® photofacial is an advanced skin rejuvenation treatment that uses light energy to enhance skin tone and texture. Unlike most laser treatments, which use a specific wavelength of light, the IPL® photofacial uses a range of wavelengths. By combining different wavelengths of light, it is possible to address a variety of skin concerns in a variety of skin types with great results. IPL® photofacial benefits include:
- Reduction in pore size
- Reduction in fine lines
- Reduction in dark spots and age spots
- Reduction in spider veins and rosacea
How Much Does an IPL® Photofacial Cost?
The exact cost of treatment will vary depending on your unique treatment goals and the extent of treatment necessary. During your initial consultation, we thoroughly discuss your cosmetic goals in order to determine the IPL® photofacial technique that is best for you. Once we develop a customized treatment plan, we will be able to inform you of the exact cost of treatment.
What is the IPL® Photofacial Procedure Like?
The IPL® photofacial treatment begins with the application of a topical cooling gel, to help keep the skin comfortable during treatment. Then, using the LimeLight system, we use a handheld attachment to deliver quick bursts of light energy to the skin. Patients often compare this to a snapping sensation, but it is generally well-tolerated. The IPL® photofacial treatment typically takes less than one hour to complete.
What is IPL® Photofacial Recovery Like?
The recovery from your IPL® photofacial will depend on the extent of treatment performed. You can generally expect redness and irritation, as well as some minor swelling. These effects typically fade within a week, and can usually be concealed with makeup. Despite these effects, patients can typically return to work and all other usual activities within a day of treatment.
What Results Can I Expect from the IPL® Photofacial?
The results from the IPL® photofacial treatment become visible in the weeks and months following treatment. For best results, we often recommend a series of IPL® photofacial treatment sessions. For most patients, this means about three to four treatments. During your consultation, we will discuss how many treatments are necessary based on your cosmetic goals.
