what is an IPL photofacial?
For patients bothered by how their complexion looks because of sun damage or dark spots, DeRosa Center Facial Plastic Surgery & Med Spa in Boston, MA can perform a skin examination to determine if you'll benefit from intense pulsed light therapy (IPL). An IPL photofacial with Lumenis® M22™ is a skin rejuvenation treatment for adults with hyperpigmentation issues on their face and neck. A photofacial is not an invasive procedure; however, the treatment is highly effective and creates impressive outcomes. We use intense wavelengths of light that warm the skin cells just enough to set off the natural healing process and increase the production of collagen. As the added nutrients take effect, you should begin to see a healthier complexion with an improved tone and less dark spots.
"I recently visited Dr. DeRosa's clinic for a mole removal. My entire experience was very pleasant from being greeted by courteous and attentive receptionists to the actual care provided during the procedure. Although my procedure was non-invasive (a shave excision), Jamie made sure to explain my options and even offered me the name of a laser specialist if I wanted to get a second opinion. During my entire visit, she was warm and made friendly conversation, I felt extremely at ease moving forward with the procedure. I typically don't write reviews, but I was really blown away by their care during my office experience, and then when I received a letter welcoming to the practice and a subsequent call from her to personally inform me of my pathology results. After visiting multiple rude and dismissive dermatologists, it was such a breath of fresh air to meet someone so kind and warm."- Y.A. / Google / Mar 28, 2019
"As a mom of 3 little kids, my face was starting to look tired and I was noticing wrinkles starting to appear. After a consultation with Nicole, I decided the IPL laser was the best choice for me. I could not be happier with my results! My face looks years younger and my skin tone is much more even. Nicole and Steven were both extremely knowledgeable and realistic, which I appreciated. Will absolutely be recommending this office to all of my friends!"- D.H. / Google / Jan 19, 2021
"My aesthetician Steven was amazing and I'm happy with my results. However, the office staff made what should have been a straight forward customer service issue regarding the package I purchased, a long drawn out situation which required multiple emails over several days to resolve."- P.A. / Google / Mar 19, 2020
"Derosa Clinic is a state-of-the-art skin care and facial aesthetics center. I recently had the most incredible facial with Steven. During my appointment he took the time to listen to my concerns and responded with a treatment plan including skin care products and IPL, (Intense Light Therapy) sessions. Steven is very experienced, gentle and his knowledge of treatments and products is endless. Beyond that, he is very kind and takes an interest in the person as well as the skin. You truly feel like you are the only person in the world while he's treating you. My skin is brighter, smoother and softer and I plan on a long relationship with Steven and Derosa Clinic. I would highly recommend them for any and all skincare needs."- L.Z. / Google / Jun 04, 2022
"I have only positive things to report about the amazing staff at the Derosa Clinic. I have been fortunate enough to have been a customer of Steven G for over 5 years. He is a miracle worker. The staff at the front (Megan/Colleen) know the business and treat you like family. I get complimented frequently on my skin and it’s because of the treatments and products I get from the Derosa Clinic - they truly care about their clients!"- PD / Office Visit / Jul 28, 2022
what does an ipl photofacial do?
An IPL treatment reaches deep within the layers of your skin to improve several complexion problems, especially brown lesions and sun spots with little or no downtime. Candidates for IPL at DeRosa Center Facial Plastic Surgery & Med Spa will have several issues with their complexion, such as rosacea, sun damage, brown spots (hyperpigmentation), rough texture, large pores, flushing, melasma, sun and age spots, or spider veins. At your private consultation, we will assess your skin to see if you will benefit from an IPL photofacial with Lumenis M22.
how is an ipl photofacial performed?
IPL is completed at our Boston, MA office. Usually, it takes around 20 – 30 minutes and is performed in a treatment room. To prepare for IPL, the technician will clean and dry your skin before covering your eyes with shields. The photofacial is administered using a handheld device that passes over the skin while emitting laser energy pulses. While most patients may have mild discomfort throughout the IPL photofacial, it's generally bearable given the quick treatment time.
what is a Geneo 3-in-1 ipl photofacial?
The Geneo 3-in-1 Facial will exfoliate, oxygenate, and infuse the skin with nu. This Super Facial will improve skin tone and texture, it will prepare the skin for optimal absorption of revitalizing nutrients, it gently warms the skin tissue for better cellular stimulation, improves moisture retention, helps oxygenate the skin from within. This treatment can be customized depending on your skin’s needs. Safe for all skin types, including rosacea, results are visible from the first treatment. This Facial helps to prepare the skin for the next step in this deluxe treatment- photorejuvenation. Photorejuvenation refers to the use of Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) to treat conditions related to sun-induced skin damage. IPL uses a broad spectrum of light which is effective in reducing the appearance of brown spots caused from sun damage. IPL will also treat broken capillaries and diffuse redness. This treatment has no downtime and the results may be seen immediately.
how quickly does an ipl photofacial heal?
There is no downtime associated with an IPL, but you will leave your appointment with your complexion a little red and inflamed. This will go away naturally as the day continues. Patients can mask the redness with makeup. DeRosa Center Facial Plastic Surgery & Med Spa suggests patients use a cream on the skin to decrease any irritation and speed healing. It may also help to use an over-the-counter anti-inflammatory medicine to reduce swelling. After 2 – 5 days, the irregularities that rested under the skin will come to the surface skin layers and then start to flake off. It is very important to protect your skin with sunscreen at all times after an IPL photofacial treatment and to not pick at the flaking skin. While you should see visible improvements after the first treatment, your complexion will attain ideal results with multiple IPL treatments. We recommend approximately 3 – 6 treatments each scheduled monthly at DeRosa Center Facial Plastic Surgery & Med Spa.
