The IPL Photofacial Procedure

Many patients are interested in fighting off the aging process through facial rejuvenation, and Dr. Eliopoulos offers several effective options. A facelift is the most aggressive technique, targeting the neck and jawline to restore youthful contours. Eyelid surgery is also an effective procedure for eliminating excess skin and fat pockets on the upper and lower lids. Non surgical options include laser assisted liposuction, which can tighten the neck and remove fat, and noninvasive radiofrequency treatments.EnlargeView All
Our ICON MaxG uses state of the art technology, optimizing the range of light waves to best target melanin pigment or hemoglobin in the blood vessels to provide maximum results, comfort, and safety. We are dedicated to performing only the very best IPL photofacial Boston and the surrounding areas have to offer, which is why we have made the investment in the Palomar MaxG.
During an IPL photofacial treatment, Optimized Light technology sends a broad spectrum of therapeutic light into the skin which can simultaneously treat multiple skin conditions. Once the light reaches its target, it is then transformed to heat energy. The light is absorbed either superficially, by broken capillaries and dark pigment, or deeply, by larger vessels and collagen. Dilated capillaries coagulate, pigmented lesions darken and then slough off and new collagen fibers are laid down, giving the skin a renewed and more youthful appearance.

What to Expect During an IPL Photofacial
There are many advantages to photofacial treatment with IPL technology. The entire procedure lasts approximately 30 minutes, and because there is no need for anesthesia, there is no prolonged recovery time. Boston IPL Photofacial patients report that the treatment feels like a rubber band snap, although the level of discomfort during IPL treatment ranges from mild to moderate. A slight burning sensation may last for up to one hour after treatment. You may experience pinkness of the treated area for a few hours immediately after the treatment, but makeup can be applied and normal activity can be resumed immediately. Pigmented spots being treated may also darken slightly for several days before fading.
For maximum results, a series of four to six IPL photofacial treatments may be recommended, depending on the number of conditions you are treating and the severity of the individual problem.
These treatments are separated by three to four weeks. By dividing the full program into several treatments, the IPL method provides gradual improvement with very low risk. After your initial series of treatments, your results should be maintained with an effective home skin care regimen, and a single photorejuvenation treatment every three to six months.
