Your IPL Treatment

Your IPL Treatment

Dr. Bonakdar uses an advanced IPL system called Lumenis M22 to treat skin pigmentation irregularities. This sophisticated technology offers a superior combination of strength, versatility and precision that allows Dr. Bonakdar to customize your treatment for optimal results. This treatment is safe and effective for almost all areas of the body, including the face, neck, chest, back, hands, arms and legs.

During the procedure, broad-spectrum light energy is absorbed by the pigmented components of the skin. After just 1 treatment, you will notice improvement in age spots, sun spots, melasma, rosacea and broken capillaries. 

Knowing What to Expect

Knowing What to Expect

A topical numbing cream is applied to the skin to minimize discomfort. During treatment, cool ultrasound gel and a special air cooler keep the skin from getting too hot as pulses of light are delivered to the epidermis. This process typically takes about 20 minutes, depending on the size of the area being treated.

Generally, there is no downtime with IPL. Most clients are able to wear mineral makeup to camouflage any discoloration and can return to their usual activities right away. During the course of several days, the pigmented area will become darker and then slough off with washing.

For best results, a series of 3 to 5 treatment sessions spaced 2 to 3 weeks apart is typically recommended. After the desired improvement has been achieved, maintenance treatments are usually performed quarterly or yearly.
