Intended for photo-aged or sun-damaged skin, the IPL Photofacial from Neem Medical Spa, located in Somerville, Lynnfield, or Winchester, MA can change your skin into a youthful appearance. When you are bothered by how your skin appears with dark spots or sun damage, Neem Medical Spa aestheticians can perform a skin consultation to determine if you would benefit from IPL (intense pulsed light) therapy with the Lumenis M22 Laser System. An IPL Photofacial is a treatment that rejuvenates the skin for adults with hyperpigmentation or skin problems on their neck and face. IPL may be a noninvasive process; however, it can create amazing outcomes. Board-certified internal medicine physician Dr. Rosy Sandhu uses IPL to warm your skin cells to set off the natural healing process and increase the production of collagen. As the added nutrients take effect, you should begin to see a healthier complexion with an improved tone and decreased spots of pigmentation.
"I drive from RI to see Dr. Sandhu in the Somerville location because she is AMAZING, as is her staff! Dr. Sandhu listens to my concerns and offers multiple ways to answer those concerns, all of which are a conservative approach, which I appreciate so much! Highly recommend!"- S.W. / Google / Oct 19, 2019
Dr. Sandhu will examine your complexion to determine if you will benefit from an IPL Photofacial during your initial consultation. IPL reaches the deeper layers of your skin to treat several complexion blemishes (particularly brown lesions and rough spots) with minimal or no recovery needed. Ideal candidates for an IPL Photofacial at Neem Medical Spa will have several problems with their complexion, such as rosacea, sun damage, brown spots (hyperpigmentation), a rough texture, visible pores, redness, freckles, sun and age spots, or spider veins.
An IPL Photofacial is done at any of our greater Boston, MA area offices in 20 – 30 minutes in one of our minor procedure rooms if no other treatments are performed. To prepare for the process, your technician will wash and dry your skin and protect your eyes with shields. The IPL Photofacial is performed using a handheld wand that will pass over the skin while emitting laser energy pulses. While many patients may have mild discomfort throughout the treatment, it's usually bearable given the quick treatment time.
What to Expect
There usually is no recovery period needed with an IPL Photofacial, but you may leave our office with your complexion a little red and inflamed. This will go away naturally in about a day — it may be masked with cosmetics if you prefer. Neem Medical Spa recommends you use a cream on the skin to minimize any irritation and promote healing. It may also help to use an over-the-counter anti-inflammatory medicine to help ease swelling. After 2 – 5 days, the irregularities under the skin will rise to the surface skin layers and then start to flake away. It is crucial to protect your skin with sunscreen as often as possible after an IPL Photofacial and to not pick at your skin while it heals. While you will have visible improvements after your first treatment, your complexion will attain ideal results with multiple IPL Photofacials. Dr. Sandhu suggests most patients get 3 – 6 sessions scheduled every four weeks at Neem Medical Spa.
