With laser and light technology development happening at such a fast pace, Dr. Hirsch urges all patients to make certain that they work with a board-certified dermatologist experienced in laser therapy to ensure proper safety with treatment. Never be afraid to ask your physician about their training and qualifications, or what their experience is with a particular procedure or device. Since any type of procedure can carry potential side effects, it is crucial to entrust your face and body only to qualified, experienced hands.
Intense Pulsed Light rejuvenation is designed to combat the effects of sun and aging in a softer and gentler way and provides a refining touch to laser procedures. Using our advanced IPL systems, light energy is delivered to the skin targeting facial redness, sun spots, reducing pore size and minimizing fine lines. A series of three to six photo facial treatments are recommended at 3-4 week intervals. This procedure takes approximately 20 minutes and is associated with only mild discomfort. Postoperatively, patients may note facial pinkness, which may be covered with makeup. Patients can return to work or resume their normal activities immediately after the procedure. In addition, our advanced IPL platforms can be used to safely treat aging and photo-damaged skin on the neck, chest and hands.
