A Consultation That's All About You
Dr. Bidic will carefully assess your skin type and cosmetic needs to determine if IPL or other treatments such as chemical peels or microdermabrasion will help you achieve your goals of clear, youthful skin. The versatility of IPL allows Dr. Bidic to customize the treatment to your unique skin type and aesthetic needs.
Your IPL Procedure
The IPL treatment is performed in Dr. Bidic's office to correct:
- Sun damage (sun spots, age spots, freckles)
- Small blood vessels
- Rosacea and redness
- Uneven pigmentation
- Raised, red scars
The IPL hand piece emits carefully controlled pulses of light into targeted areas. This may sting slightly. Pigment in the darker blemishes absorbs the light, destroying the imperfections and prompting the body to replace the damaged tissue and produce new collagen.
Treatment usually involves several 20-minute sessions spaced several weeks apart. The treatment offers minimal risk and recovery time.
What to Expect After Treatment
After a treatment, you may have mild redness comparable to a sunburn. This should go away within a day. Blemishes may turn darker before sloughing off. With each treatment, you will continue to see improvement in your complexion for clearer, more even skin tone and healthier skin. The results are typically remarkable and long-term.
