The 5th Avenue Dermatology Surgery & Laser Center is pleased to offer a new, safe and effective way to significantly reduce the signs of photo-aging, including freckling, redness, brown pigmentation, and fine lines all with one device.
Intense Pulsed Light Photo Rejuvenation system
Our new Intense Pulsed Light Photo Rejuvenation system is designed to combat the effects of sun and aging in a softer and gentler way. Using our advanced IPL system, light energy is delivered through the skin removing facial redness, erasing pigmented spots, reducing pore size and minimizing fine lines. A series of three to six photo facial treatments are given at 3 week intervals. This procedure takes approximately 20 minutes and is associated with only mild discomfort. Postoperatively, patients may note facial pinkness, which may be covered with makeup. Patients can return to work or resume their normal activities immediately after the procedure. In addition, this Intense Pulsed Light system can be used to safely treat aging and photo-damaged skin on the neck, chest and hands.
After just one or two treatments, you will notice an even tone to your skin, less pigmentation and a smoother look and feel. Sunspots will start to fade and pores will become less apparent. Fine lines and wrinkles will soften over time. These improvements continue with each treatment. Patient with acne and rosacea will also see a reduction in facial redness as a result of each treatment.
The best candidates for this procedure are patients with sun damaged skin, flushed faces secondary to acne, facial blood vessels, pigmented facial spots and enlarged pores. For further information regarding this new and exciting facial rejuvenation procedure please call for a consultation.
