Our office utilizes Intense Pulsed Light technology for numerous cosmetic reasons. This is one of our most requested and utilized technologies. Intense Pulse Light technology, or IPL, uses short blasts of high-intensity light that reaches beyond the skin’s surface. The IPL breaks up melanin below the skin, encouraging production of skin tone that is balanced and luminous. It also targets small blood vessels that may have appeared from years of sun exposure or from underlying Rosacea. An IPL treatment, which is usually done in a series of 5 sessions, promotes collagen, though not as much as a fractionated laser system. Still, the overall appearance of the skin is smoother and younger, with less uneven pigmentation after the series of sessions is over. Dr. Fink has published original research based on IPL technology.
Patients will undergo a series of IPL treatments. During your photo facial, a soothing solution will be applied to the treated area and the intense pulse light technology will be delivered through a hand held device. Photo facials require no downtime, so you may return to your normal activities immediately following treatment.
Dr. Fink and our staff will be happy to meet with you to discuss photo facials. Contact our Westchester County office at 914-393-4127, or request your appointment online today for a personalized consultation with Dr. Fink.
