Beauty Across The Spectrum

IPL Skin Resurfacing

IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) is a device that delivers broad-spectrum light into the skin. This device delivers multiple wavelengths of light energy, with each wavelength addressing different concerns. As such, depending on your specific goals, the cosmetic doctor can adjust it to treat vascular lesions, hyperpigmentation, or other concerns.

Healthy and Refreshed

Your Laser Skin Resurfacing Procedure

You’ll be asked to appear for your session with freshly washed, makeup-free skin. Our Newton laser skin resurfacing providers will cleanse your facial skin to remove all the debris and apply a numbing gel to ensure comfort. You’ll have to wear a pair of goggles to protect your eyes from the intense light energy. The cosmetic provider will move the handheld device over the treatment areas, delivering light energy in a grid-like pattern. The procedure will conclude within 60 minutes.

Skin Laxity & Fine Lines

Collagen is the component responsible for your skin’s firmness, tightness, and volume. When you’re young, your skin’s plentiful collagen reserves make it look voluminous and firm. However, as you grow older, your body’s ability to produce and retain collagen is compromised, leading to skin laxity, sagging skin, fine lines, and wrinkles. Laser skin resurfacing treats skin laxity by addressing its root cause — the loss of collagen. IPL devices deliver high-intensity light energy deep within the skin, activating your body’s innate collagen production capabilities. Your body gradually produces new collagen fibers, thereby restoring your skin’s structural firmness and reversing the signs of aging.

Textural Irregularities

Laser skin resurfacing treats textural irregularities, such as acne scars, surgical scars, and depressions on the skin, by encouraging collagen production. The high-intensity light energy encourages collagen production, which, in turn, fills the scars and depressions on your skin. Over time, new collagen fibers smoothen your skin’s surface.

Pigmentation Problems

Hyperpigmentation, sunspots, age spots, freckles, and other pigmentation problems occur due to overactive pigment-producing cells in the body. During laser skin resurfacing, the cosmetic doctor delivers multiple wavelengths of light energy that are absorbed by the pigment-producing cells. This destroys the unwanted skin pigments and restores evenness.

Vascular Lesions

Vascular lesions and spider veins occur due to broken capillaries and damaged veins on the skin’s surface. During laser skin resurfacing, the light energy from the IPL device is absorbed by the damaged veins and capillaries, making them shrink and shut down. Over time, the diseased veins are absorbed by the body, fading away from the skin’s surface.

Rejuvenate Your Skin

Laser Skin Resurfacing Recovery, Aftercare, and Results

Following laser skin resurfacing Newton patients may experience their skin looking pink and sunburnt for a few hours, but the redness will gradually dissipate. You must apply sunscreen to protect your sensitized skin, but there’s no professional or social downtime. IPL treatments don’t involve extended recovery periods — you may resume your daily activities immediately. You can also start wearing makeup immediately after the treatment. The pigmented spots will gradually flake off over the next couple of days, and your skin will look smoother, tighter, and better. The cosmetic doctor may recommend follow-up sessions to improve the results. Most patients need three to five sessions every three to four weeks for optimal results.
