Dr. Mike Majmundar, double board certified facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon, offers IPL Photofacial treatments to the residents of Atlanta, Sandy Springs and the surrounding communities in Georgia.
Many people with skin conditions such as sun damage, brown spots or age spots, rosacea, broken capillaries, and skin discoloration can find improvement with intense pulsed light, or IPL Photofacial treatment. IPL treatment employs light energy that gently heats the targeted skin areas and stimulates the body’s own natural healing process. As the skin heals, the treated areas show a reduction of red vessels, brown spots, and/or sun damage. During the procedure, the light energy penetrates deep below the skin’s surface to promote the production of new collagen. The treatment will enhance the skin’s appearance by rejuvenating and smoothing the skin.
Each treatment lasts about 30 minutes, and most patients require about three to eight treatments, scheduled about three to four weeks apart, to see maximum results.
For most patients, the discomfort associated with an IPL treatment is minimal. The results depend on the condition of the skin and how many treatments are completed. Following treatment, areas of excess pigment may turn dark and eventually lighten or disappear. The healing process takes about two weeks, though no recovery or downtime is required.
