Dr. Saurabh Lodha
This was my first appointment with a dermatologist and it was a lot less scary than anticipated! Dr. Lodha is full of knowledge and little facts that will make u want to treat your skin with more respect. He did not lecture yet he explained and I was very thankful for that. I would recommend anyone to go and see their new office – it’s great Dr. Lodha, was very reassuring about my concerns. He was also very explicit and caring about the small procedure he was performing. He was very thorough, gave me as much time as I needed, responding to my questions thoroughly. I highly recommend Dr. Lodha...

IPL PHOTOFACIAL

The IPL Photofacial is a revolutionary new laser skin rejuvenation treatment, that uses Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) technology. Also known as IPL Photorejuvenation for its restorative properties, this minimally-invasive laser treatment penetrates deep beyond the skin’s outer layers to reduce blemishes, and even out the complexion from the inside-out.

How Does the IPL Photofacial Work?
The IPL laser uses an intense beam of broad-spectrum light, that penetrates the skin’s surface, targeting the lower layer known as the dermis. This intense beam of light has a number of healing and restorative properties for the skin. Once the light energy waves make contact with the dermis it triggers the body’s natural healing mechanism, and proliferates the growth of fresh, new skin cells. The light energy can also stimulate the production of collagen, a vital skin compound that is often depleted with age. This process helps to reduce or eliminate many of the common signs of aging, including wrinkles, sun spots, hyperpigmentation, superficial scars or blemishes, and more.

The added collagen production also has a brilliant effect on the skin. As we age our skin tends to experience something known as Facial Volume Loss, which causes wrinkles, facial folds, dehydrated skin, and overall dull, drained facial contours and complexion. Collagen acts as a natural filling agent, filling the depleted areas, and fortifying the facial contours. It also has the ability to hydrate and moisturize the skin, providing patients with soft, supple, skin with a renewed feel and natural glow.

Candidates for IPL Photofacial
The IPL Photofacial can create some amazing, long-lasting results; however it may not be for everyone. The best candidates for the IPL treatment are those patients with fare, somewhat elastic skin. Those who may have darker, more tanned skin, will want to consult with our staff prior to this procedure, as the IPL laser may have drastic effects on their overall complexion and skin color. Patients that may be experiencing premature signs of facial aging such as wrinkles, rough, dry skin, or those with red, blotchy, facial discolorations and rosacea.

The IPL Photofacial specializes in the treatment of:

  • Rosacea
  • Red, Blotchy Skin
  • Dry, Rough Skin
  • Light-to-Moderate Wrinkles and Fine Lines
  • Moderate Facial Volume Loss
  • Moderate Acne or Acne Scarring
  • Hyperpigmentation, or Uneven Complexion
  • Sun and Age Spots
  • Enlarged Pores

Procedure and Results
The procedure itself is relatively short, most patients are finished within 30 minutes to an hour, depending upon the severity of their skin issues, as well as the size of the treatment area.

Upon completion patients will generally experience extremely mild side effects; possible redness, and tender skin can occur for a few hours, and last up to a week depending upon the level of correction. Patients are advised to avoid overexposure to sunlight for the first week or two following their procedure, and to apply generous amounts of sunblock, as the skin may be tender immediately following the procedure and sun/UV rays will cause peeling or redness. IPL treatments can provide amazing results that, if properly cared for, can last for years at a time.
