Flower Mound, TX dermatologist offers photo facial services with IPL laser treatment
Flower Mound, TX patients ready to enhance their skin’s appearance are encouraged to ask Dr. Bryan Selkin and the team at the Center for Dermatology and Cosmetic Laser Surgery about solutions such as the photo facial achieved with IPL (intense pulsed light).
What is IPL treatment?
IPL treatment is a non-laser solution to improving texture and tone of the skin. With intense pulsed light, patients will be able to achieve a more attractive appearance and address conditions including:
- Broken capillaries
- Sun spots
Also known as photorejuvenation, IPL is a way of addressing problems without the aggressive treatment of lasers. The treatments are comfortable, yet effective, and several sessions are best for the most noticeable results. We often encourage patients to book a number of treatments spaced weeks apart to completely refresh and revitalize their appearance. In addition to treating the issues above, IPL can improve pore size and overall texture of the skin.
How long do the results of treatment last?
Treatment results will last many months to year as long as sun protection is used routinely, and many of our patients who want to maintain their beautiful skin will continue to schedule sessions on a regular basis. Because the procedure is so mild, patients can have their treatments done during their lunch breaks and return to their normal schedule without any interruptions. This makes it a great service for those who have a busy lifestyle and want to avoid procedures that may require extensive downtime and healing, such as lasers and deep chemical peels.
Who is a candidate for photorejuvenation?
IPL treatments are great for those with chronic sun damage. We encourage patients to schedule a consultation appointment with Dr. Bryan Selkin to determine candidacy before moving forward with this procedure. This ensures safety and efficacy.
What areas of the skin can IPL be used on?
Many of our patients tend to use photorejuvenation on the facial area. However, it can also be used elsewhere on the body, including the neck, chest, and hands. The device can be customized to treat larger areas. During a consultation visit, we welcome patients to ask about what they can expect not only during their procedure but in terms of final cost.
What other options are available?
Photorejuvenation with IPL service is not the only way to rejuvenate the appearance of the skin. Our team offers a variety of state-of-the-art devices in our practice that can be used to enhance the skin’s appearance and texture. Some of our patients find that a combination of services is most rewarding in terms of the results achieved, so we may encourage some patients to consider alternatives. This is the importance of a consultation visit, so our team can assess your needs and provide an effective treatment plan that works for you and your budget. The other options we have available include specialized creams, lasers, fillers, and Botox.
How long does IPL take?
IPL is a relatively fast procedure for patients who are having smaller areas treated. However, if you are treating an area of the body that is considerably larger, it can take up to an hour. At the Center for Dermatology and Cosmetic Laser Surgery, we find that treatment can take anywhere from fifteen minutes to one and one half hours, depending on the area being addressed. Dr. Bryan Selkin and his team are committed to ensuring patients have choices available to them, and have the education they need to make knowledgeable decisions in regard to the care they receive in our practice.
