If dark spots or sun damage has you concerned about the appearance of your complexion, a photofacial or skin treatment with intense pulsed light (IPL) therapy may be an effective solution for you. IPL is a skin rejuvenation treatment for adult men and women with hyperpigmentation and other skin issues on their neck, face, hands, or other parts of the body. Led by noted physician Dr. Mukhtar Anees, Med Spa At Seena One is a leading source for advanced IPL photofacial Lumenis® M22™ technology in the Fort Worth and Burleson, TX area. Dr. Anees and our laser technicians use intense pulses of low-level LED light dispensed in multiple wavelengths that heat the skin cells to set off the natural regeneration process and increase collagen production. As the results of light therapy take effect, your skin should take on a healthier complexion with an improved tone and decreased spots of pigmentation. IPL is a noninvasive, state-of-the-art procedure and can minimize a wide variety of skin concerns, from sun damage and aging skin to spider veins and rosacea. Talk to our team today to reserve your skin examination and learn if a photofacial or skin treatment with IPL can meet your unique needs.
Martinni® Gel Collagen Mask
To enhance the positive effects of IPL photofacial therapy, our team of experts may incorporate the use of a Martinni gel collagen mask. This hydrophilic mask is positioned comfortably over your face and delivers low-level LED light therapy to target specific concerns over complexion issues. Various colors of light are often used to fight signs of aging, decrease inflammation, and boost the skin's elasticity, among other benefits. Masks used in light therapy do not employ ultraviolet light and are considered safe for the skin. However, light-emitting masks should be avoided by those using Accutane or experiencing skin rashes.
"Great prices, great service with multiple options, great staff, and great location. It's a gem of the Burleson/Crowley area."- J.N. / Google / Dec 14, 2015
"Great gastroenterologist. Recommend him to anyone! He's performed at least one colonoscopy and endoscopy in the last 5 or 6 years. He's a sweet, sweet man. He is a deeply spiritual man. His office staff wa quite disorganized. They called multiple times to reschedule, and it was confounding. Dr. Anees apologized and took responsibility. I told him "Of course I forgive you." He is such a gracious gentlemen. His DON, Stephanie (??) is the BEST RN you could ever hope to receive. She's smart, professional, funny and put me at ease. (I was really up tight when I came in.) She and Dr. Anees actually made my procedure easy. I won't say pleasurable due to the nature of it, but it went quite smoothly."- L.A. / Google / Dec 14, 2015
IPL Ideal Candidates
An IPL skin treatment works deep within the layers of your skin to address many complexion problems (especially brown lesions and sun spots) with little or no downtime. Ideal candidates for IPL treatments at Med Spa At Seena One may have a wide range of issues with their complexion, including sun damage, rosacea, hyperpigmentation (brown spots), rough texture, large pores, redness, freckles, melasma, sun and age spots, or broken capillaries. During your initial consultation, Dr. Anees will assess your skin and discuss your cosmetic concerns to determine if you might benefit from a photofacial or skin treatment with LED light therapy.
IPL Procedure Technique
An IPL photorejuvenation procedure harnesses the healing powers of Lumenis Optimal Pulse Technology to reverse the effects of damaged skin. Photofacials are performed in one of our private treatment rooms and take about 20 – 30 minutes to complete unless combined with other treatments. To start the IPL treatment, our team will wash and dry the skin to be treated before covering your eyes with a protective shield. The IPL procedure is performed using our Lumenis M22 handheld device that emits pulses of LED light energy when passed over the skin. While most patients may feel mild discomfort throughout the procedure, it is usually tolerable given the quick treatment time.
What to Expect with IPL
There is no recovery time needed with an IPL, but you may leave our office with your skin a little red and swollen. While this will decrease naturally in about a day, it can be concealed with cosmetics if you prefer. Our experts at Med Spa At Seena One suggest applying a cream to the skin's surface to minimize irritation and promote healing. It also helps to use anti-inflammatory medication to reduce any swelling. After several days, the blemishes under the skin will make their way to the surface and then start to flake away. It is important to protect your skin with sunscreen at all times after an IPL photorejuvenation treatment and avoiding picking at your skin while it heals. While you will see some visible results after your first treatment, your skin will attain ideal results with several LED light therapy sessions. Dr. Anees suggests approximately three treatments scheduled every four weeks at Med Spa At Seena One to optimize your results.
IPL Frequently Asked Questions
How much does IPL cost?
Every case is unique, which means your cost for IPL treatments will be dependent on your goals. Med Spa At Seena One may offer specials on treatments, like IPL, for Fort Worth and Burleson, TX clients and accepts several payment methods. In your initial consultation, we can help estimate your cost and recommend how many sessions are needed to fit your needs and goals.
How quick are the results from IPL?
Our Lumenis M22 handpiece is among the most effective and advanced technologies in use today. Visible improvements from IPL at our facility are usually noticeable after your treatment, but final results can be seen around one month after a full series of treatments is completed. It is normal for your skin to portray varying results after each treatment. You will see gradual improvements in redness, blotchiness, and spots (age, brown, and sun) over time.
What are the possible side effects of IPL?
Most individuals have mild side effects, like temporary swelling, redness, blisters, crusting, or bruising that generally fade in a few days. Your skin will be sun sensitive, and excessive sun exposure will negatively impact the results of the procedure. Whenever you go outside, you should always wear sunscreen to protect your skin and avoid damage, like spots and redness.
Do I need to prep for IPL?
Dr. Anees also recommends that you avoid sun exposure and tanning beds for four weeks before and after LED light therapy treatments. You might also need to discontinue the use of minocycline, tetracycline, doxycycline, or Retin-A/Renova several days before each procedure. Treatment areas should also be protected with sunscreen.
Why should I get multiple IPL sessions?
Multiple IPL sessions help to bring natural-looking improvements to the appearance of your skin. Each treatment helps to reduce spots and other surface irregularities for a rejuvenated, more balanced complexion. Multiple treatments also produce longer-lasting enhancements.
