Photofacials

The specialists at the Lavenburg Medical Group and the DelMar Surgical and Cosmetic Treatment Center offer photofacials in Wilmington and Newark, Delaware; Elkton and North East, Maryland and surrounding areas in Delaware, Maryland and southeast Pennsylvania.

The IPL Photofacial process clears sun damage and visible veins for a rejuvenated appearance.

How does an IPL Photofacial work?

Intense Pulsed Light Systems use specialized hand pieces which filter light from different parts of the spectrum. Each band of the spectrum has a wavelength that is ideal for different treatments, such as sunspot removal and vessel clearance. The hand pieces emit pulses of light into the skin. The light is absorbed by the pigment in sunspots and the blood in visible vessels, and converted to heat. The heat dissolves the cells that create the pigment and shrinks the vessels.

What Can I Expect During my IPL Photofacial Treatment?

We all want clear skin, but nature has a way of sabotaging us with frustrating imperfections, especially as we age and sun damage accumulates. Fortunately, skin rejuvenation has advanced beyond the painful procedures of the past. The process offers comfortable and effective photofacials for the treatment of sun damage and visible veins.

Your treatment provider will move the hand piece over your skin, pulsing it all the while. Each pulse will send a beam of light through your skin. A flashing light, an audible tone, and a mild sensation on the skin will tell you when the hand piece is being pulsed.

What should I expect after IPL Photofacial Treatment ?

Immediately after treatment, you can expect a mild sunburn-like sensation, possibly accompanied by some minor swelling. This usually lasts 2-24 hours, and can be soothed with cold gel or ice packs.

Sunspots/ Sun Damage: The sunspots will darken after treatment and be naturally shed from the skin within 1-2 weeks.

Rosacea: Skin tine will be more normal, with less pronounced redness within a week after treatment.

Spider Veins: Vessels may disappear after treatment or they may appear darker and then fully or partially fade within 10-14 days.

Typically, several treatments will be necessary to achieve complete clearance of sunspots, rosacea, and vessels.
