Treatment of Freckles and Age Spots

Treatment of brown spots (including age spots and other pigmented lesions) using intense pulsed light (IPL) therapy effectively reduces the appearance of freckles and brown spots caused by age and sun damaged skin. The procedure is quick, non-invasive, virtually painless and has minimal side effects. Treatments of brown spots are non-surgical and require no downtime.

With So Many Clinics Offering Treatment of Freckles and Age Spots, How Do I Choose the Right Place for My Treatment?

Lasers are medical devices which require training and knowledge - and above all, constant medical supervision - for safe and effective operation. Discount laser clinics might offer lower fees and faster treatment times, but they will not be able to offer you the same level of medical expertise offered by a reputable medical office - especially that of a Board Certified Facial Plastic Surgeon.

How does IPL for pigmented spots work?

Laser and intense pulsed light (IPL) pulses are directed at the pigmented spots. A highly advanced computer regulates the light pulse to a specific wavelength range, which in turn heats the targeted pigment, thereby damaging or otherwise destroying the targeted lesion while sparing the surrounding healthy or normal tissue.

How many treatments will I need?

Results are unique to each individual depending on several factors including skin tone and the extent pigmented lesions. Up to 5 treatments might be necessary for optimal results. Treatments should be performed over one month intervals in order to accurately assess progress, and adjust settings as necessary.

Am I a good candidate for IPL?

New technology is making IPL treatments effective for most skin types. Dr. Naficy and his trained staff will personally assess your skin to determine whether you are a good candidate for IPL treatment for pigmented lesions.

Are treatments painful?

You will feel some discomfort, which can be minimized by using a topical anesthetic (numbing cream) or by using a cooling mechanism such as the Zimmer.

What will happen after the treatment?

You may experience temporary redness, itching and/or swelling in the treated area, but this typically lasts a very short time and most people return to work or normal activity immediately after treatment.

Should I be doing anything in preparation for my treatment?

You should avoid sun exposure and tanning (including artificial tanning products and procedures) before and after your treatments. Also, you should discontinue the use of any blood thinners such as Coumadin, aspirin or other types of anti-platelet or anti-coagulant herbal remedies including Garlic, Ginger, Cayenne, Gingko, Gingko biloba, Selenium, Papaya, Bilberry and Vitamin E Tablets/Supplements.
