FACIAL REJUVENATION

Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) Atlanta, GA

IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) Atlanta, GA, MetroDerm, PC

Intense Pulsed Light therapy, or IPL, targets hemoglobin (the red blood cells in the blood vessels) or melanin (the brown pigment in freckles) using lightwaves. The light bypasses the outer layer of skin and gently heats the cells in the deeper layer of skin, the dermis. These cells, called fibroblasts, start to produce more collagen, which improves texture and fine wrinkles.  Because our supply of collagen dwindles as we age, this treatment is highly beneficial for facial revitalization, but it can also be used on the neck, chest, hands, and other body parts.

IPL is used for a variety of conditions:

  • Lightens and removes sun spots and brown patches on the face, neck, chest, hands, and other parts of the body.
  • Soothes the redness of rosacea and helps control flushing.
  • Removes and minimizes “broken” blood vessels
  • Improves skin tone because it stimulates collagen
  • Minimizes pore size and fine lines

There is little discomfort or downtime and the benefits are amazing. Treatments take approximately 30 to 90 minutes, depending on the size of the area to be treated. Generally, the area is numbed 30 minutes before the treatment begins. The patient wears glasses to protect the eyes. As the hand piece is moved over the face, the pulsing light feels like a series of snaps from a rubber band.  After the treatment, there may be a little swelling and/or redness.

A Series of Treatments is Best

IPL treatments are most successful if the patient plans to have several done over a period of months. For mild to moderate skin damage, three to five treatments are recommended. More treatments may be indicated depending on the level of damage. With each treatment, you will see the skin gradually clear.

Once your skin has been rejuvenated, you will want to keep the glowing results. In order to avoid the reappearance of the brown patches and age spots, you will have to take precautions to avoid sun exposure and damage. Your results will not last long if you do not protect your skin from the sun.

Here are some other recommendations to help you keep your skin glowing:

  • Wear a hat and sunglasses
  • Wear sunscreen every day on your face and hands
  • Schedule maintenance appointments twice a year
  • Discuss pharmaceutical-grade skin products with your aesthetician

Each patient is unique; therefore, results of treatment may vary.

TESTIMONIALS

“Dr. McClure has no peer in his field. Apart from his incredible skill as a surgeon, he is also wise and compassionate, too. He knows when it’s the right thing to do nothing. I would not be alive today were it not for his treatment of my melanoma years ago. My wife and I trust him more than any other doctor whom we have ever known.”

Robert H.
“Dr. Berghoff has been my doctor for years and has identified and repaired significant skin issues on several occasions that could have resulted in serious health issues. I always leave his office feeling like I know what my skin health is!”
John P.

“Dr. Papadopoulos did a wonderful job on my recent surgical procedure on my arm. He made me feel at ease and explained everything to me in terms that I could understand. He was precise and succinct during the surgery, and my recovery could not have gone any smoother. I highly recommend Dr. Papadopoulos for any and all skin cancer surgery.”

Martha R.
“I have always had the best of care from Dr. Niren. I’ve been going to her since 1986, and I have nothing but praise for her professionalism and the time she spends with me.”
Debbie J.

“I’ve been Dr. Kim’s patient for over 10 years and she is amazing! I recommend her to everyone and am grateful for the care and compassion she has shown me. Unfortunately, because of my skin, I see her a lot, but she makes visits and procedures as stress free as possible.”

Tara F.
“I’ve been a patient of Dr. Garvey for a little more than six months. She has provided me relief from a serious varicose vein issue. I couldn’t be happier or more impressed with her knowledge, skill, and bedside manner. She has my highest recommendation. Her nurse, Eulene, and office manager, Chris, are also wonderful. Thanks to Dr. Garvey and team!”
Al G.

“Dr. Pearl and her staff are amazing. I can’t speak highly enough about them all.”

Christye N.
“I have been going to Dr. Alford for several years. She is great! She is so pleasant and listens to any concerns you may have. She is thorough and professional. I always look forward to seeing her. If you’re looking for a great dermatologist, I highly recommend Dr. Alford.”
Robyn C.
“Dr. Neckman came highly recommended by my wife, and I was a little nervous on my first visit. She made me feel very comfortable and almost like a sister was looking out for her brother. She explained everything very well and took care of me with speed and compassion. Couldn’t recommend a dermatologist more.”
Tony M.
