As you get older, you may notice that the skin on your face begins to change. Blemishes and spots may begin to form, causing you to look older than you are. At North Texas Plastic Surgery, we understand that these skin conditions can be embarrassing and concerning, which is why we offer Lumenis laser treatments, such as IPL photofacial, to remove signs of aging and damage to your face and give you a refreshed and rejuvenated appearance.
If you wish to learn more about the IPL photofacial in Dallas, please call our Harvard-trained, board-certified plastic surgeon to schedule your complimentary consultation in the Dallas-Forth Worth area.
IPL photofacial is a rejuvenation treatment in which intense pulsed light (IPL) helps eliminate a wide range of facial conditions. By using high-energy light waves, IPL treatment not only treats a variety of skin discolorations but also encourages the production of the skin’s natural collagen, which is a natural protein that keeps skin smooth and full.
At North Texas Plastic Surgery, we use the M22™ IPL technology by Lumenis®. The advantages of the M22™ technology from Lumenis® for IPL photofacial treatment include:
The Lumenis® M22™ IPL uses light pulses that move through the skin, creating heat and targeting skin imperfections in a controlled way. The treated area then flakes off when your body goes through its natural and constant process of exfoliation. At the same time, collagen and elastic fibers are stimulated, which results in a visible improvement of your skin’s tone and overall appearance.
IPL photo-rejuvenation technology treats pigmentation and vascular imperfections while improving your skin’s overall appearance. The M22™ IPL with optimal pulse technology lets us customize your treatment to your skin type and the results you want. It can gently and effectively treat a wide range of skin conditions, including:
If your skin is in need of rejuvenation because of skin discolorations caused by environmental conditions or genetics or you just want to improve the overall appearance of your skin, IPL treatment may be just right for you.
Our goal is to provide safe and effective laser treatments for everyone that comes to us. During your consultation, our physicians will evaluate your skin as well as go over your current health and medical history to make sure the IPL photofacial treatment is right for you.
Good candidates for this procedure generally include those:
The M22™ IPL photofacial treatment is designed to work on a range of skin tones and colors. However, darker skin tones may not respond to treatments as well as lighter skin tones. During your consultation, your doctor will evaluate your skin type and give you an idea of how the treatment will work for you. It’s also important to talk to your doctor about any medications you’re currently taking to make sure that no adverse side-effects occur so that you can enjoy facial rejuvenation with little to no downtime.
At our office, your IPL photofacial treatment should not take more than 45 minutes. It’s a quick in-office procedure with minimum discomfort. The process is generally as follows:
For some conditions, it may take a few sessions to see the best results. In general, the heavier your skin blemishes, the more treatments you’ll need. While IPL treats existing skin problems, it doesn’t prevent new ones from developing. For instance, if you get treated for sun-damaged skin, you’ll still need to take steps to prevent sun damage in the future. Your results will last longer if you take good care of your skin by using a good antioxidant and sunscreen, as well as avoiding sun exposure as much as possible.
At North Texas Plastic Surgery, our goal is to give each patient exceptional, natural-looking results through the use of advanced technology and techniques. In addition to our board-certified plastic surgeon, registered nurse Onna Fuechter is also certified as a senior laser technician by the State of Texas. She performs all of our skin rejuvenation treatments, including IPL Photofacial.
