IPL in Huntington, NY

If you struggle with sun damage, blemishes, or fine lines on your face, our team at North Shore Cosmetic Surgery can help. We offer the revolutionary light-based IPL Photofacial to restore smoother, clearer, brighter, more youthful skin. This non-invasive treatment reduces the appearance of hyperpigmentation and wrinkles on the face and neck – and has virtually zero downtime.

What is IPL?

A photofacial with IPL is a skin rejuvenation treatment for adult women and men with hyperpigmentation or wrinkles on the face and neck. It is a non-invasive treatment that uses intense pulses of light energy to heat your skin cells safely. The targeted heat stimulates your skin’s natural healing and rejuvenation processes, boosting natural collagen production and destroying pigmented (blemished) cells. Over time, you will begin to see a healthier complexion with improved skin tone and dark spots fading away. Call our private practice on Long Island to learn more.

The IPL procedure

IPL is performed at our Huntington, NY office in a private procedure room. A single IPL session lasts around 20 to 30 minutes and does not involve any downtime or recovery. To prepare for your photofacial, your technician will cleanse your skin before protecting your eyes with special laser shields. The IPL treatment is delivered with a handheld wand passed over your skin, emitting laser energy pulses. While many patients report mild discomfort, it is reasonably easy to experience, and the remarkable changes in skin quality are well worth it.

What to expect after an IPL Photofacial

There usually is no downtime needed with an IPL Photofacial, but you may leave our office with your face appearing slightly inflamed and red. This side effect will decrease naturally as the day continues, and can be hidden with cosmetics if needed.

We will advise you to keep cream on the skin’s surface to minimize irritation and promote healing. It may also help to use an over-the-counter anti-inflammatory medicine to ease swelling.

Over two to five days, the blemishes and other skin irregularities deep within your skin will rise to the surface skin layers and begin to flake away. It is critical to protect your skin with sunscreen after a photofacial treatment and avoid picking at your skin. While you will see some visible improvements after your first treatment, your complexion will attain ideal results with a series of IPL treatments. Most patients undergo between three and six monthly sessions at North Shore Cosmetic Surgery to achieve optimal results.

Get back your glow with IPL

Even if you didn’t think much about your skin’s health when you were younger, once skin damage like sun spots, wrinkles, and other concerns begin to appear, improving your complexion becomes very important. We encourage you to find out more about IPL treatments by contacting our Huntington, NY office, and making an appointment for a skin consultation. With IPL laser treatments at North Shore Cosmetic Surgery, we can reach the deeper layers of your skin to help bring back a bright glow and a clear complexion.
