Skin that is smooth in tone and texture is desirable and attractive, but not everyone naturally has the skin they prefer. Skin conditions like acne and rosacea can detract from the skin’s even tone, and aging can result in brown spots, fine lines and wrinkles. Intense pulsed light (IPL) treatments are a type of laser therapy that can diminish redness in the skin while improving tone and texture. LM Medical NYC offers IPL treatments for facial rejuvenation at our clinic in Manhattan.

IPL treatments, or Photofacials, are an excellent option for individuals with discolorations on their skin. The treatment is less invasive than lasers that resurface the skin, and many require downtime after the procedure. IPL uses light energy that penetrates deep into the layers of the dermis, but it does not damage the epidermis or surface of the skin. The light is attracted to the darker pigmentation of capillaries and other discolorations, removing the targeted redness from the skin. Since the light energy does not affect the skin’s surface, no downtime is needed after treatment.

Benefits of IPL Photofacials

An IPL Photofacial can benefit those with discoloration, sun damage or aging issues. The best candidates for IPL treatments are those with fair to medium-toned skin that is prone to redness – IPL treatments are not always the best option for darker skin tones since the light energy is attracted to the darker melanin in the skin. Some of the benefits of Photofacial treatments include:

  • Remove age or brown spots
  • Reduce redness from broken capillaries
  • Rosacea treatment
  • Improve skin tone and texture
  • Minimize fine lines and wrinkles
  • Remove acne scarring
  • Remove spider veins

IPL treatments can usually be performed in less than an hour, and the procedure is comfortable and well tolerated by most patients. The skin may be reddish and slightly sensitive after the treatment, but patients can return to normal activity. Over the next one to two weeks, pigmented cells will come to the surface and flake away.

Photofacial is performed with a series of treatments to remove the darker skin cells and capillaries in the skin. Most patients will need multiple treatments over three to five months to achieve the desired results.

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’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!
