Non-Invasive. No Downtime. Immediate Results.
Do you think that the reflection you see in the mirror each morning matches the way you feel? Many patients wish that there was a safe, easy and quick way to get rid of their red complexion, fine wrinkles, irregular pigmentation and large pores. Fortunately, Kagan Institute has advanced technologies that treats these skin imperfections safely, easily and effectively like IPL photofacial.
IPL Photofacial is the perfect solution for many common skin imperfections and one of our most exciting anti-aging services. Photofacials produce evenly-toned skin that looks more youthful. The IPL Photofacial can erase skin damage and treat a variety of common skin conditions. Intense Pulse Light treatments give you the gradual, natural improvement for longer lasting results. This non invasive method reduces redness within the capillary walls and is beneficial for: chronic rosacea, reducing sun damage (solar keratosis), and improving protein (collagen) synthesis.
IPL Rejuvenation was also designed to combat the effects of aging and damaged skin in a softer, gentler way. Redness and rosacea can be reduced 80 to 90 percent. It can be used to treat the full face, neck, chest and even the hands.
Q: How do IPL Photofacial rejuvenation treatments work?
Dr. Kagan: Today’s new light technology delivers precise dosages of energy to the skin. During your treatment, light energy is gently delivered through a special hand piece to the targeted area. Levels of energy specific to your treatment are used to maximize your improvement. Once delivered, the light energy is absorbed by the targeted damaged tissue.
Q: Who are the best candidates for IPL Photo Facial Rejuvenation?
Dr. Kagan: The best candidates have:
- Red, flashed faces
- Sun-damaged skin
- Enlarged pores
- Liver spots
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Dull complexions
Q: How many treatments will I need?
Dr. Kagan: Depending on the area treated, there will be a series of five to eight treatments. Treatments usually take from 15 to 30 minutes and are administered in-office by Dr. Kagan himself.
Q: Does IPL Photo Facial rejuvenation hurt?
Dr. Kagan: During the procedure, you may feel a slight pinch, often described as the light ‘snap’ of a rubber band. Anesthesia is usually not required.
Q: Are IPL Photofacial rejuvenation treatments safe?
Dr. Kagan: Yes. Advanced light systems have been used safely for millions of treatments worldwide. These systems treat only the targeted tissues, leaving the surrounding tissue intact. However, some bruising or redness may occur.
Q: What can I expect after an IPL treatment?
Dr. Kagan: Most clients can resume normal activities immediately. The skin may appear red and warm for a short amount of time following the treatment. Ice may be applied to the treated area. It is recommended that you avoid direct sun exposure and sun tanning booths for 14 days following an IPL treatment. An SPF of 30 or higher should be worn over the treated area.
Q. What results can I expect?
Dr. Kagan: After only one treatment, your skin will have a more even tone with a smoother look and feel. Sunspots will fade. Pore sizes will shrink. Fine lines and wrinkles will gradually decrease in size. These improvements will steadily increase with each treatment. Patients with rosacea will see a progressive decrease in redness with every treatment.
