About IPL

If you struggle with how your skin looks because of sun damage or dark spots, Advanced Plastic Surgery Center can offer you a skin analysis at our Arlington, VA office to see if you qualify for intense pulsed light therapy (IPL). An IPL photofacial is a skin rejuvenation treatment for adult men and women with hyperpigmentation and wrinkle issues on their face and neck. IPL is not an invasive procedure, it can be very effective and produce great results. Intense wavelengths of light that heat are delivered to the skin just enough to ignite the natural regeneration process and boost collagen production. Over time, you should see a healthier layer with a more even tone and less dark spots.

Procedure Technique

IPL is performed inside our Arlington, VA office in about 20 – 30 minutes in one of our minor procedure rooms if performed alone. To start the IPL facial, the technician will clean and dry the skin to be treated before covering your eyes with special laser shields. The IPL is administered with a handheld device that will be passed over the skin, emitting pulses of laser energy. While most patients will feel some discomfort during the IPL, it is generally tolerable for the short treatment time.

What to Expect

There is no downtime associated with an IPL photofacial treatment, but you will leave your appointment with your skin a little red. This will decrease on its own as the day continues — it can be concealed with makeup if you want. The sun damage and other irregularities that rested under the skin will come to the surface and then begin to flake off. It's necessary to keep your skin protected from the sun at all times after an IPL photofacial treatment and to not pick at your skin. While you should see some visible results after the first session, your skin will attain the best results after several IPL sessions. Dr. Talal Munasifi and Dr. James Economides recommend approximately 3 – 6 treatments performed about once a month at Advanced Plastic Surgery Center.
