Intense Pulsed Light

Dr. Kiripolsky uses the most powerful and effective IPL device on the market. It is safe for most skin types and has multiple settings that allow Dr. Kiripolsky to personalize treatment depending on each patient’s skin condition.

WHAT IS IPL?

IPL is a light-based treatment that targets the browns and reds in the skin, such as freckles and broken capillaries (telangiectasias)  It also treats ruddy marks on the skin from prior areas of active acne.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

The intense beam of energy emitted by the IPL machine effectively disperses dark pigmentation and cauterizes red vessels. This gentle process leads to a gradual reduction of discoloration in the targeted area, essentially erasing persistent and undesirable brown and red spots. 

WHAT LOCATIONS OF THE FACE AND BODY ARE TREATED WITH IPL?

While IPL is commonly employed for facial treatments, its versatility extends beyond the face. This advanced procedure can also be applied to areas such as the neck, chest, back, arms, and hands, broadening its effectiveness across various regions of the body. 

WHO CAN BE TREATED?

IPL proves highly effective for individuals seeking to diminish the appearance of hyperpigmentation, freckles, rosacea, acne scarring, and broken capillaries.

HOW MANY IPL TREATMENTS ARE NECESSARY?

To attain optimal results, a series of IPL treatments is essential. Research has demonstrated that undergoing multiple sessions not only stimulates increased collagen production but also enhances skin texture and tone. These treatments are usually spaced at intervals of approximately 3-6 weeks to ensure the best outcomes. 

HOW LONG IS RECOVERY?

Generally, there is minimal to no “social downtime” associated with IPL treatments.

It’s crucial to emphasize that not all IPL devices are crafted with the same level of quality and effectiveness.

Picosecond Laser (PiQo)

Dr. Kiripolsky uses the most powerful PiQo device on the market, ideal for treating a broad range of skin pigmentation conditions and tattoo removal.

WHAT IS A PIQO LASER?

The PiQo laser is a versatile tool, widely recognized for its effectiveness in tattoo removal and correcting hyperpigmentation, which refers to areas of abnormally darkened skin. Utilizing fractionated settings, this advanced laser extends its capabilities to not only address wrinkles but also to reduce the visibility of stretch marks, acne scars, and various other skin imperfections.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

The PiQo laser employs ultra-short pulses in the nanosecond and picosecond range, applying high-pressure forces to effectively fragment pigmented lesions and ink particles during the tattoo removal process.

HOW LONG IS THE PROCEDURE?

The procedure takes about 10-15 minutes per session, depending on the size of the area being treated.

HOW MANY PIQO TREATMENTS ARE NECESSARY?

Achieving the best overall result often requires multiple sessions, with the precise number determined during your consultation. This determination considers factors such as your skin type, the specific laser treatment purpose, and the targeted area of the body. For optimal results in treating melasma and hyperpigmentation, laser sessions are ideally spaced 2-3 weeks apart, while sessions for tattoo removal, stretch mark treatment, and wrinkle smoothing are typically spaced 4-6 weeks apart.

HOW LONG IS RECOVERY?

Typically, there is no “social downtime.”
