We all want flawless, youthful, gorgeous skin, and depending on several factors 2D skin rejuvenation, IPL and Laser Genesis therapy may be your ideal treatment option. When collagen is increased, the skin is hydrated, and damaged tissues are treated using various methods, you can achieve your ideal skin.
Skin Rejuvenation Using IPL Photofacial Treatment
Don’t let rosacea, sun damage, or hyperpigmentation affect your skin any longer. The Intense Pulsed Light (IPL™) fotofacial / photofacial procedure is an innovative skin rejuvenation technique that can improve even the skin.
IPL™ is one of the most exciting innovations that modern dermatology has to offer. It can transform skin blotches and pigmentation issues, leaving you with a youthful, radiant complexion. IPL™is also known as photofacial and even “fotofacial” therapy. When we administer it from our NYC skincare spa most sessions only take about 30 minutes. During that time your skin will be directly treated with strong light pulses that penetrate to its deeper layers.
How does IPL Work?
IPL™ is designed to stimulate your sub-dermal blood vessels and collagen with the goal to reduce a number of skin issues, including red coloration as well as age lines. What’s more, the procedure is non-invasive and at worst provides mild discomfort for some patients. Not bad for a procedure that usually shows its benefits within a few short weeks!
FotoFacial RF Treatment for Skin Rejuvenation and Benefits
Patients seeking extra enhancement can also consider opting for FotoFacial RF™ treatment. This procedure is similar to IPL™, but it combines the light therapy with radio waves to enhance results.
Who Benefits Most from IPL™? Although Intense Pulsed Light treatment can help a wide range of people, ideal candidates for IPL™ are those without a tan. It also helps to have relatively elastic skin.
Another important consideration is developing realistic expectations for IPL™ and who ideal candidates are. IPL™ can improve the skin’s texture, problems with discoloration, minimize pore size, and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The treatment can also benefit people suffering from rosacea (commonly characterized by facial blotches and redness).
Patients with more serious or “set-in” issues (such as deep facial lines or a multitude of acne scars) may need to consider a more aggressive treatment than IPL™, including face-lifts or brow-lifts.
How does IPL™ Photorejuvenation Work?
IPL™ is a photorejuvenation treatment using a series of high-energy light waves on the skin. This method has proven to be very useful for many people at reversing skin problems common with aging. Most notably, IPL™ is used to treat mild facial wrinkles, skin discolorations, and complications arising from rosacea.
At the root of IPL™’s success is the stimulation of collagen. Collagen is the natural protein your body uses to fill in wrinkles and to smooth skin making it more supple. These collagen-stimulating benefits have made IPL™ a favored therapy at Manhattan skincare spas.
What is Laser Genesis?
Laser Genesis is a similarly innovative modern dermatology technology offered at the best skincare spas in NYC. Through a gentle warming of the dermis, laser genesis has proven exceedingly effective at reducing redness, minimizing the effects of acne scars and rosacea, as well as reducing spider veins and other similar visible facial vessels. The FDA recently approved Laser Genesis therapy to improve the skin’s appearance, especially in regards to fine line reduction.
Warming the dermis helps to provide extra stimulation to a patient’s fibroblast cells. This allows for the production of new collagen, yielding a more healthy, vibrant appearance. Other purposes of Laser Genesis include minimizing pore size, as well as shrinking a patient’s oil-producing glands. This therapy is designed to reduce the skin’s production of sebum–a type of oil that commonly causes breakouts.
Is Laser Genesis Painful?
Laser Genesis is not at all painful. In fact, some patients find the warming sensation of Laser Genesis to be quite pleasurable–it’s a sensation that can last for up to a half-hour after the procedure’s completion, followed by a nearly-immediate tightening of the skin in many cases. The speed at which visible Laser Genesis results show up is one of the biggest reason Laser Genesis has been adopted by so many Manhattan skincare spas. Laser Genesis is a non-invasive procedure that requires no special preparation. It only takes an average of 45 minutes to treat your entire face–perfect for those who want to visit spas in NYC, but have busy schedules.
