About IPL

When you struggle with how your facial skin appears because of dark spots, sun damage, or fine lines, Romanelli Cosmetic Surgery can perform a skin analysis at our Huntington, NY office to determine if you qualify for IPL (intense pulsed light) therapy. A photofacial with IPL is a skin rejuvenation treatment for adult men and women with hyperpigmentation or wrinkle issues on their neck and face. A photofacial may be a noninvasive process; however, it can be highly effective and create great outcomes. Our plastic surgeons, Drs. James Romanelli and John Layliev, use intense pulses of light energy that heat the skin cells to ignite the natural healing process and increase the production of collagen. Over time, you should begin to see a healthier complexion with an improved tone and less dark spots. Call our practice on Long Island to learn more.

Ideal Candidates for IPL

IPL reaches the deeper layers of your skin to improve several complexion concerns (particularly brown lesions and sun spots) with minimal or no downtime. Candidates for IPL at Romanelli Cosmetic Surgery will have a combination of concerns with their complexion, such as rosacea, sun damage, brown spots (hyperpigmentation), rough texture, wrinkles, visible pores, redness, freckles, melasma, sun and age spots, or broken capillaries. Our cosmetic team will examine your complexion to determine if you will benefit from IPL at your initial consultation.

Procedure Technique for IPL

IPL is performed at our Huntington, NY office in around 20 – 30 minutes in our minor procedure room if no other treatments are conducted. To prepare for the photofacial, your technician will wash and dry your skin before protecting your eyes with special laser shields. The IPL is performed with a handheld wand that will pass over the skin while emitting laser energy pulses. While many patients may have mild discomfort throughout the IPL, it's usually bearable given the short treatment length.

What to Expect from IPL Therapy

There usually is no downtime needed with a photofacial treatment, but you may leave our office with your complexion a little inflamed and red. This will decrease naturally as the day continues — it may be masked with cosmetics if you prefer. Romanelli Cosmetic Surgery advises you keep a cream on the skin's surface to minimize any irritation and promote healing. It may also help to use an over-the-counter anti-inflammatory medicine to ease swelling. Over the course of 2 – 5 days, the sun damage and other irregularities under the skin will rise to the surface skin layers and then start to flake away. It is critical to protect your skin with sunscreen as often as possible after a photofacial treatment and to not pick at your skin. While you will have some visible improvements after your first treatment, your complexion will attain ideal results with multiple IPL treatments. We suggest most patients get 3 – 6 sessions performed monthly at Romanelli Cosmetic Surgery.
