HOW IPL WORKS

Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) technology removes unwanted pigmentation by utilizing different light wavelengths with special filters to target unwanted browns and reds that reside in the skin. At Fourth N Main in Asbury Park, the Lumecca by InMode will be used to help patients reduce the appearance of unwanted brown spots, age spots, sun damage, broken vessels, and even rosacea.
 
This technology leaves the surrounding healthy tissue undamaged and unaffected. This is because IPL technology will only identify pigmentation that is brown or red. Once the laser targets a specific pigment, it begins to break down and the body begins to naturally flush the pigment out. Brown spots will start to rise to the surface of the skin until the pigment flakes off, and red spots or vessels will dim with a continued clearance over time.

what to expect

DURING THE TREATMENT

After an initial consultation with one of the certified IPL technicians at Fourth N Main in Asbury Park, you will be cleared to begin the Photofacial treatment using Intense Pulsed Light (IPL). All patients will wear eye shields throughout the duration of the procedure, and the providers wear eye protection goggles as well. At the start of the treatment, a cool gel is applied that creates a barrier between the laser handpiece and the skin. When the IPL is being conducted, patients can expect to feel a warm rubber band snap sensation when the energy is being delivered to the skin. Immediately after, the skin may feel warm across the treated areas. Upon completing the laser portion, the gel is removed. You may experience mild sunburn-like symptoms for a few days after the treatment, but you can resume your normal day-to-day activities following the treatment, with the exception of unprotected sun exposure.

 

If you are interested in a Photofacial, please be aware of the following: Remove all make-up and lotions prior to the treatment, at least 4 weeks before the appointment, discontinue unprotected sun exposure, tanning beds, and tanning creams on the areas receiving treatments, and 1 week before the appointment, discontinue the use of retinol products on the areas receiving treatments.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT IPL PHOTOFACIALS

  • WHAT IS KYBELLA?
    Kybella is a refined version of a substance called deoxycholic acid, which is naturally produced by your body. Deoxycholic acid’s primary role is assisting with fat absorption.
  • HOW DOES KYBELLA WORK?
    It destroys fat cells wherever it is injected, causing them to be absorbed by the body. When injected into the fat beneath your chin, Kybella causes the destruction of fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat. This makes Kybella an innovative and ideal new way for patients to gain some of the benefits of liposuction for a double chin without surgery. Prior to approval in May of 2015 by the Food and Drug Administration, Kybella was the subject of medical trials that included more than 1,000 individuals. The results showed that eight out of ten people who received Kybella had a loss of chin fat.
  • WHY CHOOSE KYBELLA?
    Most people who have a double chin feel self-conscious about the fullness. To make matters worse, extra fat in this region may not go away with diet and exercise. A lot of individuals who struggle with double chins avoid liposuction for their problem because they worry about the costs, downtime, and invasiveness. Fortunately, Kybella offers a cutting-edge new way to solve double chins without these obstacles.
  • WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT?
    Many patients experience visible contouring of their chin profile in two to four treatment sessions spaced at least one month apart on average. Once the desired aesthetic response is achieved with Kybella, re-treatment is not expected.

IPL PHOTOFACIALS

Many people begin to notice that their skin tone becomes more uneven with age. There are many factors that contribute to an uneven skin tone. Primarily, unprotected exposure to the sun causes unwanted pigment in the skin that usually is described as brown spots, freckles, or sun spots. Most people will find that their uneven skin tone is not just on their face, but also on their hands and chests. Likewise, others experience problems with their skin tone such as small vessels around the nose or cheeks (spider veins, broken vessels), red spots, or even rosacea. These nuisances can be corrected through skin revitalization, also known as a “photofacial.” The photofacial is an ideal choice to address unwanted pigmentation on the face, hands, and chest. Our IPL has a Vasculaze handpiece. Many people find that after a few treatment sessions, the skin tone begins to be more uniform and even.

Our certified IPL technicians at Fourth N Main in Asbury Park are excited to help you with your journey to achieve a more clear and even skin tone. By scheduling a complimentary consultation for an IPL treatment, you could be one step closer to your revitalized skin tone.
