After visiting Dr. Sterry's Manhattan office for a photofacial, New York patients often go right back to work or resume their regular routine without having to hide away at home while they recover. There may be some temporary mild redness after an IPL photofacial treatment, however, and you should avoid sun exposure for the recommended period following the treatment. The best part is that the results are almost immediate. It creates a subtle change, giving you a more even skin tone, refined skin texture, reduction in brown spots and an overall look of youthfulness.
If you feel that a photofacial treatment could be right for you, contact Dr. Sterry's office today and set up an appointment for a consultation. He will evaluate you, listen to your goals and determine the best way to achieve the younger and more rejuvenated look you desire without a long and painful recovery.
“An IPL—or intense pulsed light—photofacial is a non-ablative, or non-wounding, treatment method that rejuvenates the skin.”
“Traditional full-face laser skin resurfacing is an ablative process that uses carbon dioxide and/or an erbuium:YAG laser to remove the entire outer skin layer, or epidermis, and portions of the underlying skin layer, or dermis. Ablative procedures involve a one- to two-week recovery period with swelling, oozing and crusting of the skin, as well as discomfort.
“By contrast, an IPL photofacial is a non-ablative treatment method that does not visibly disrupt the outer skin layer, and thus involves little or no downtime.”
“A Laser Genesis IPL photofacial uses laser technology to safely, discretely and effectively treat uneven skin texture, scars, large pores and diffuse and excessive redness. You will feel a gentle warming of your skin's surface as the laser handpiece is moved back and forth about half an inch above your skin.
“An IPL photofacial treatment can be performed in a relaxed, comfortable manner without the use of anesthesia gel or cream. A treatment takes less than 30 minutes in the office and produces very little discomfort.”
“An IPL photofacial works by using laser light energy to promote new collagen production and improve the skin's tone and smoothness.”
“This is a lunchtime treatment—you can go right back to work or your normal routine after an IPL photofacial. Some patients may experience some temporary mild redness following a treatment. Because the treatment will make your skin more sensitive to the sun, you should avoid sun exposure after a treatment.”
“You can expect to see subtle, yet consistent results after each IPL photofacial treatment, without unwanted side-effects like bruising or excessive skin irritation. Your skin's tone will become more even and the texture will be refined, making your skin look younger and more refreshed.”
“Dr. Sterry is compassionate, knowledgeable, dedicated and very well-informed on the treatment of bariatric post-ops. He understands where post-ops come from and the frustration of living in bodies that have become even more uncomfortable. I am just starting this process, but would not hesitate to recommend Dr. Sterry.
