Atlantic Surgical Associates proudly offers this advanced cosmetic treatment at our office in West Long Branch, New Jersey. We welcome patients from surrounding communities in Monmouth, Essex, and Ocean counties.
What is an IPL Photofacial?
The IPL (intense pulsed light photofacial) is a revolutionary laser treatment that specifically targets hyperpigmentation including rosacea, sun damage, and brown spots to reveal more flawless, youthful skin. Hyperpigmentation is targeted with intense light wavelengths that are converted to heat as they’re absorbed by the pigmented skin cells. The heat disperses the pigmentation and destroys damaged skin cells.
The IPL photofacial is an effective solution for photorejuvenation and to treat specific skin concerns like acne and rosacea. It’s also non-invasive and affordable.
An IPL photofacial does not damage healthy skin. With a cooling mechanism to improve comfort, you should not experience any pain during your treatment.
How Much Does an IPL Photofacial Cost in West Long Branch, NJ?
The cost of your IPL photofacial depends on the number of sessions you need, your skin concerns, and the size of the treatment area. This cosmetic treatment is typically affordable and even a single session can deliver noticeable results. During your consultation at Atlantic Surgical Associates, we will work with you to create a customized treatment plan and review the cost of your treatment.
What Can an IPL Photofacial Treat?
Intense pulsed light laser technology is effective at treating many common skin concerns. While it’s mostly used to treat sun damage, it can also improve the appearance of:
- Spider veins
- Age spots
- Poor skin tone
- Acne and acne scars
How Many IPL Treatments Will I Need?
The number of IPL sessions you will need depends on the area being treated and your specific skin concerns. For best results, you may need three to six treatments spaced one month apart. Some patients only need one or two sessions, however. Each treatment builds on the results you achieved with the treatment before as new skin cells take about 30 days to develop.
What is Recovery Like After an IPL Photofacial?
The IPL photofacial is popular not only for its effective results, but also for its non-invasive nature, which means an easy recovery. While some patients develop bruises that may last a week or two, most people do not have side effects beyond crusting. Your hyperpigmented spots — like freckles and brown spots — will darken for up to one week as the pigmentation rises to the surface before flaking away.
