Do you have redness, dark spots or signs of sun damage on your skin? If you want clearer, evenly toned skin, there are cosmetic treatments to achieve the results you desire. One of the less invasive options is intense pulsed light, or IPL, treatments, which we offer at LM Medical NYC.

What Is IPL?

Intense pulsed light is controlled light energy, a type of laser skin treatment. IPL treatments harness light waves that target dark pigments in the dermis of the skin and blood vessels, but does not harm the upper epidermis. Unlike laser treatments that are ablative and remove the top layer of the skin, IPL treatments do not have this effect. This means less downtime and recovery – most patients do not need time to recover after an IPL treatment.

IPL treatments are ideal for removing dark pigmentation in the skin. This can include freckles, age/brown spots, broken capillaries, spider veins and dark acne scars. IPL treatments can also help reduce flushing or redness on the skin, which is common for those with rosacea. The light energy is attracted to the darker pigments, destroying those cells. It can also stimulate a healing response that increases collagen in the skin, reducing fine lines, wrinkles and evidence of sun damage.

Are IPL Treatments Right for You?

IPL treatments are a wonderful way to eliminate darker skin areas and improve overall tone or texture. These non-invasive treatments can minimize large pores, even the skin tone and stimulate more youthful-appearing skin. If you want a treatment that can be performed in less than an hour and does not require downtime, IPL treatments may be right for you.

During the IPL procedure, the light energy targets the capillaries and darker skin cells. The treatment is not painful, but the skin will likely be red and slightly sensitive after the procedure. You can return to normal activities and use most normal makeup or skin products. In the days and weeks after each treatment, you will notice dark spots flaking away and the skin improving in tone and texture.

Most patients require a series of IPL treatments to achieve the desired results. If you are interested in learning more about IPL treatments or any of our cosmetic procedures, give us a call at LM Medical NYC. Contact our office in Greenwich Village to book your cosmetic consultation.

Dr. Lesley Rabach is incredible at what she does, she recommends small adjustments that look so natural but also give a noticeable result. Beyond that, she's absolutely lovely to be around and the entire energy of her office is so pleasant! I'll be turning to her for her recommendations go forward, it's SO important to find a plastic surgeon you can really trust. She is it! Thank you!

I’ve been visiting LM medical for 4 years. The staff is always welcoming. The location is beautiful and modern. Dr. Morgan and Dr. Lesley are amazing physicians. They are very personable and genuine. They are open to questions and addressed all of my concerns. I have been more then pleased with my experience with LM Medical and I highly recommend this office.

Chris B.

Dr. Morgan Rabach and her staff provide top tier care and excellent service. Dr. Rabach is well-versed in the latest research. She made lots of time to discuss my dermatological history (what’s worked, what hasn’t worked, what hasn’t been tried) and all the available treatments to find the best path forward. She didn’t settle - pushing to make sure I got the best results possible. Would recommend without any reservations!

Toni D.

I have been seeing both Dr. Lesley & Dr. Morgan now for almost about three years now. Each time is better than the last. I trust them for natural results & they always deliver. What I value most is that they are never pushy! Always open, honest, and they are just overall good people.

Xavier M.

Dr Morgan and her staff are very warm and efficient professionals. She provided me with straightforward answers on three different concerns and more importantly, found the adequate treatment for me right away. A well staffed and organized team! Highly recommended.

Emily B.

The staff are incredibly friendly and so helpful. The wait times are very short, the space is clean and modern, and they're very quick to respond to questions over the phone or email. I needed a detailed receipt for my insurance and they gave me two different versions until my insurance was satisfied. The doctors are friendly, laid back, and really listen which is awesome. Would highly recommend!!

Fun, safe and the results were perfect. Can’t wait for my next procedure!
