IPL Photofacial New York City

Photo Rejuvenation - FotoFacial ™

IPL technology is a new home-run advance in photo rejuvenation that is safe and non-invasive for Dr. Narins patients in NYC and Westchester County. Photo rejuvenation erases skin damage without disrupting the skin surface and simultaneously treats a wide range of facial problems to improve the texture and complexion of your skin. This is a low risk, "no downtime" treatment - you can resume all activities immediately.

What does IPL do?

IPL photo rejuvenation treatments produces smoother, even-toned, more youthful looking skin. Dr. Narins uses it to treat a variety of conditions in New York area patients including:

  • Vascular changes - red blood vessels
  • Telangectasia
  • Redness from rosacea & flushing
  • Skin discoloration & mottled pigmentation
  • Sun damage and photo aging
  • Brown spots such as freckles and lentigos
  • Redness after CO2 laser resurfacing
  • IPL also minimizes red and brown spots while it evens out skin color and texture, and decreases that red flushed appearance from the skin.

What areas can be treated with IPL?

You can treat the entire face, neck, arms, hands, chest, back etc. This is a new break through in anti-aging treatments.

How many IPL treatments are necessary?

Typically 4-6 treatments are done over a 4 month period. Treatments are spaced approximately 3 weeks apart.

How long will improvements last?

So far improvement seems to last for several years. Maintenance treatments are wonderful to maintain the clearer, less sun-damaged and smoother skin.

How is the treatment preformed?

A cold gel is applied to the area being treated and the smooth surface of the IPL hand piece is gently applied to your skin. The pulses of light produce a slight sting and the treatment takes 15-20 minutes. A topical anesthetic cream may be used. There are generally 4-6 treatments in a series that provide excellent long-term results, minimal adverse effects and high patient satisfaction.

When can I return to my normal activities?

You can immediately resume all regular activities. By dividing the treatment into several sessions you get gradual improvements with low risk. This is a wonderful "no downtime" procedure.

Can I combine this treatment with other "No Downtime" treatments for enhanced results?

Combined no downtime procedures give the best results without invasive surgery. The following procedures combined with IPL produces excellent results:

  • BOTOX® Cosmetic - to soften and erase lines in the upper face including forehead, frown and crow's feet
  • Dermal Fillers - to fill out folds & wrinkles the nasolabial & puppet lines, enhance the lips, fill out the cheeks & chin and soften the hollows under the eyes
  • Vbeam Laser - to remove hemangiomas, blood vessels, rosacea
  • Liquid Nitrogen, medium peels & Nd Yag Laser - to remove deeper brown spots
