IPL Laser Skin Treatment

When most people think of laser skin resurfacing, they imagine an aggressive burning of layers of skin. However, recent breakthroughs in laser technology have made the treatments much gentler than previous generations. We at Spa Medica on Main, have administered IPL laser skin treatments for many areas of the body, including the face, hands, and neck. If you are in Bay Shore or the surrounding areas and wondering if you’re a good candidate for IPL laser treatment, please give us a call to schedule a consultation.

How does it work?

IPL is administered through a device that uses wavelengths of pulsed light in combination with radio wave technology to remove skin abnormalities, which, when properly administered by a board certified professional, will result in clearer skin. Most patients reported little discomfort and found that the surrounding skin was left intact.

What to expect

The number of IPL laser sessions required depends on your skin condition and what you hope to achieve with us. At Spa Medica on Main, we will tailor a skin regime based on these specific skin concerns. For best results, most of our Bay Shore patients require approximately 6 treatments at 3 week intervals. Depending on the size and condition of the area treated, one treatment takes approximately 45 minutes.

Side effects?

Though side effects are minor, some of our Bay Shore clients experienced redness, blotchiness, or itchiness. If you experience these symptoms, keep in mind that they will subside within a few hours. When they do, your skin will feel softer and appear years younger.
