Facial rejuvenation is a great way to walk back the clock and remove years from your appearance, but not everyone is interested in undergoing a full-on surgical procedure. Non-surgical alternatives are a great way to not only save money but avoid the extensive recovery period that can sometimes follow a surgical procedure, which is why we offer IPL and other facial rejuvenation procedures to patients in Bucks County Doylestown, and the nearby areas.
How Does the IPL Procedure Work?
The intense pulsed light procedure involves exactly what it sounds like — short bursts of intense light that will be pulsed into your skin, with a treatment typically lasting between 30 and 90 minutes. Before the treatment begins, we’ll help you with a topical numbing cream to ensure that you stay as comfortable as possible.
During the procedure itself, a specific wavelength of light energy will be delivered into your skin at a highly-specific depth. This light energy interacts with pigments and other impurities, breaking them up so that your body can metabolize them and allow you to enjoy healthy, clear skin without surgery.
When your treatment is over, we’ll provide you with UV protection, and help you out with specific aftercare instructions, so you can know exactly what to expect after your treatment. Any swelling present can be minimized with the help of a cold compress. Generally, we recommend three treatments, with a few weeks between each session.
