IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) Photofacial

Fine lines, hyperpigmentation, redness, and other skin concerns may not always respond to traditional treatments. IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) photofacial treatments can often meet those challenges where other methods have failed, transforming sun spots and other imperfections into youthfully fresh, evenly toned skin. In addition, Dr. Cutolo and his aesthetic staff frequently use IPL to treat occurrences of acne and other skin care concerns in his New York City and Staten Island patients.

Take the first step towards smooth, beautifully clear skin. Request a complimentary consultation online, or call us today at (718) 720-9400 to schedule a visit.

Who is a Good Candidate?

You may benefit from IPL if you want to:

  • Reduce hyperpigmentation and redness
  • Minimize age and sun spots
  • Treat acne or rosacea
  • Diminish fine lines by building collagen

Your Procedure

The treatment typically lasts about 30 minutes, depending on your skin care concerns. During the procedure, the device delivers pulses of photo-thermal energy to deeper layers of skin in the targeted areas. Some patients compare this sensation to a rubber band snapping against their skin. Most patients benefit most from 3 to 5 treatments, usually spaced about a month apart.

Recovery

Although some patients experience redness and swelling right after their procedure, these side effects usually subside in just a few hours. We will provide you with detailed instructions for achieving the best results from your treatment, such as protecting your skin from the sun. Improvements continue over the next few weeks after your treatment.

Results and Benefits

Our acne treatment and facial rejuvenation patients in New York City and Staten Island typically experience noticeable improvements in concerns such as hyperpigmentation, fine lines, and acne blemishes. In some cases, particularly for patients who want to correct the signs of aging such as wrinkles, facial hollows, and fine lines, we may recommend other complementing and enhancing treatments, such as chemical peels and a home care regimen.
