IPL Laser Treatments
Intense Pulse Light (IPL) treatments are a non-invasive method of treating a variety of skin conditions. Also known as photo rejuvenation or photofacial, the procedure is ideal for resolving conditions on the chest, face, hands and neck
IPL Photorejuvenation is great for conditions including:
- Age spots
- Broken capillaries
- Brown spots
- Red or ruddy skin
- Sun damage
IPL treatments offer stunning results without the need to disrupt the skin’s epidermal surface. Patients can receive IPL treatments at Dr. Feledy’s plastic surgery offices in Virginia and Maryland.
IPL Laser FAQs
1) How does the IPL Laser work?
IPL procedures use low-energy, short-pulse broadband light that is delivered through a small hand-piece. This gently heats the blemishes on your face and eliminates them. It also stimulates the production of collagen that softens the appearance of aging skin. Your body's natural healing response will replace these blemishes with younger-looking skin. Five to eight IPL treatments are often required to produce the best results.
2) Are IPL treatments safe?
IPL treatments have been approved by the FDA. Patients wear safety eye wear during the procedure and there is a very low risk of complications. Bruising or redness may occur but soon fade.
3) Does the IPL Laser hurt?
Most patients report minimal discomfort that resembles the snap of a rubber band. Be sure to discuss any concerns that you may have with Dr. Feledy as he may provide a topical anesthetic to ensure your comfort.
4) How long does an IPL treatment take?
Many patients undertake IPL treatments during the course of a lunch hour. After the procedure, you can return to your daily routine and no one will notice any signs of treatment.
5) When will I see the results?
Over several months, patients will see significant changes as new skin develops causing wrinkles to fade and skin blemishes to disappear. Patients should avoid harsh skin cleansers and use sunscreen in order to ensure the best results
