Skin resurfacing with IPL
IPL stands for intense pulsed light. While not a laser, this treatment uses a specialized wavelength of light energy to target the skin deep within and provide effective surfacing. IPL treatment is done right in the office of Dr. Bryan Selkin by one of our trained and experienced team members and is completed quickly to minimize patient time in our office. We start with an evaluation of the skin during a consultation appointment, during which the patient can speak with a dermatologist about their skin concerns. Some patients can address problem areas with certain medications and topical creams, which can be discussed during the appointment. In addition, combining these treatment plans with IPL treatment can help patients in obtaining results faster!
Who is a candidate for IPL therapies?
Most patients will benefit from IPL treatment. This can be determined by our team during a consultation visit at our practice. Patients near the Grapevine, TX area can make an appointment with our staff and decide if this treatment is appropriate for their specific needs or ask about alternative options that may also be available.
What can I expect with IPL treatment?
After patients consult with Dr. Bryan Selkin of the Center for Dermatology and Cosmetic Laser Surgery to determine candidacy, they can then start their treatment appointments. Patients may have a topical numbing cream applied to the skin for optimum comfort before a specialized device is used along the skin to send the light waves deep into the lower levels of the skin. This can stimulate the process of collagen and elastin production, improving texture and tone of the facial area over the course of several weeks and months. Some patients may prefer to undergo a single treatment, while others may use IPL treatment on a regular basis for optimum results. During a consultation appointment, patients can work with their dermatologist to determine how many treatment sessions should be scheduled to achieve the results they desire. Once patients have had their treatment completed, they are provided with aftercare instructions by our team. Patients can care for their skin as they did before, or they may want to work with our team to develop a personal skin care regimen that helps in hydrating the skin and ensuring it looks its absolute best!
