IPL with OPT

Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) Skin Rejuvenation (Photo-facial) with Optimal Pulse Technology (OPT) in Midtown East, New York City (NYC)


Cumulative sun damage can begin to surface in our mid to late 20’s and beyond. Sun exposure in early childhood often results in uneven skin tone, aging us beyond fine lines and wrinkles. Has the damage been done? Not yet.

IPL Skin Rejuvenation (Photo-facial) with OPT is a non-invasive yet effective anti-aging solution that promotes younger, healthier, and glowing skin. Harnessing the spectrum of light, it delivers impressive and lasting results to manage a broad range of aging signs. This light therapy aids in the reduction of a variety of benign conditions, including: age spots, sun-induced freckles, symptoms of rosacea, birthmarks, unsightly veins, acne scarring, and other blemishes. It also helps minimize fine lines, mild wrinkles, and enlarged pores, thus restoring youth and vibrancy to the skin.

All IPL with OPT treatments finish with applications of: skin-specific serums, replenishing gel, calming balm, hydrators, and broad spectrum SPF.

How does it work?
Broad spectrum pulsed light targets sun damage, environmental damage, and aging skin by coagulating blood vessels, eliminating pigmented spots, stimulating collagen or elastin, and regenerating healthy skin cells. It also minimizes redness from broken capillaries and rosacea. You will notice a visible reduction in pore sizes, fine lines, and mild wrinkles, resulting in an overall healthier complexion. In addition to your face, it can be successfully used to rejuvenate the skin on your neck, back, décolleté, arms, and hands.

What does the procedure feel like?
IPL is most often described as relaxing and therapeutic. You will experience a gentle warming of your skin’s surface and a brief, pinprick sensation during the procedure as the IPL handpiece is moved back and forth about an inch above your skin.

How many treatments will I need?
In general, a series of four to six treatments scheduled at four-week intervals is sufficient to address most skin concerns.

Is there any downtime after the treatments?
There is minimal downtime associated with these treatments. Slight redness and mild sensitivity are common, but usually disappear within a few hours after the treatment. You can expect to return to normal daily activities with the use of sunscreen for any outdoor activities almost immediately.
