If you struggle with how your facial skin looks because of sun damage or dark spots, Spa 361 at the Dermatology and Skin Cancer Institute can offer you a skin analysis at our Fort Washington or Lansdale, PA office to see if you qualify for intense pulsed light therapy (IPL). An IPL photofacial is a skin rejuvenation treatment for adult men and women with hyperpigmentation issues on their face and neck. IPL is not considered an invasive procedure, but it can be very effective and produce great results. We are proud to use the advanced Spectrum Laser technology for our IPL treatments. This treatment sends intense wavelengths of light that heat the skin just enough to ignite the natural regeneration process and boost collagen production. Over time, you should see a healthier complexion with a more even tone and less dark spots.
"My teenage daughter and I are both patients of Dr. Kasper. The reception area is modern and bright. The reception area staff is always welcoming. Dr. Kasper is friendly and efficient. Wait time is short, which I appreciate. I am thinking about booking an aesthetician appointment or two in the near future."- M.A. / Yelp / Jun 30, 2019
"Woowwwww! Went in for a while body exam because I gave fair skin. Best experience I have had at a dermatologist, or maybe at any doctors office ever. So clean. Punctual. Organized. Pleasant. The PA Amy that I saw was personable, pleasant and knowledgeable! What a tremendously positive experience! Would highly recommend !"- M.S. / Yelp / Feb 26, 2020
"Excellent service from front desk to providers!!"- D.P. / Google / Feb 20, 2020
"Absolutely a positive experience. The office is really well designed. I walked in and was greeted and taken care of right away. The woman doing my registration was very nice. The doctor (Dr. Manion) was friendly and all business. Took care of my issue that day in less than 5 minutes. Pain free. Solid explanations. Great doctor. Scheduling a follow up was easy too. Amanda made it seamless and simple."- B.M. / Google / Feb 14, 2020
"I am new to this practice so I have only been there twice so I cannot make an overall rating yet. I will say that the check in receptionist was great. There was a discrepancy with my copay, the woman double checked the information and verified on her end what she was seeing which was incorrect. She then took me at my word and charged me the copay that I paid last time in case what I was saying was accurate. I confirmed later with the office building department (which was also a very pleasant and positive phone call) The front desk woman did not argue and neither did I. It was just a very pleasant transaction that in my experience with payment does not happen very often so it was refreshing and I am very grateful to her. Same thing with the billing department Jennifer I believe was very patient, kind, and helpful. Even though I've only been here for 2 visits so far top notch help and service. I truly appreciate what everyone has done for me so far."- J.B. / Google / Jan 30, 2020
IPL Ideal Candidates
IPL works deep within the layers of your skin to improve many complexion concerns (especially sun spots and brown lesions) with little or no downtime. Candidates for IPL at Spa 361 at the Dermatology and Skin Cancer Institute may have a combination of concerns with their skin, including sun damage, rosacea, hyperpigmentation (brown spots), rough texture, large pores, flushing, freckles, melasma, age and sun spots, or broken capillaries. A trained and experienced professional will assess your skin to see if you are a candidate for IPL at your private consultation.
IPL Procedure Technique
IPL is performed in about 20 – 30 minutes in a private treatment room. To start the IPL facial, we will clean and dry your skin and then cover your eyes with special laser shields. The IPL is administered using a handheld device that passes over the skin while emitting pulses of laser energy. While most patients will feel some discomfort during the IPL, it is generally tolerable for the short duration of the treatment.
What to Expect with IPL
There is no downtime associated with an IPL photofacial treatment, but you will leave your appointment with your skin a little red and swollen. This will decrease on its own as the day continues — it can be concealed with makeup if you want. Spa 361 at the Dermatology and Skin Cancer Institute advises patients to keep an ointment on the skin's surface to decrease irritation and speed healing. It also helps to take an anti-inflammatory medication to help decrease swelling. Over the course of several days, the sun damage and other irregularities that rested under the skin will come to the surface and then begin to flake off. It's necessary to keep your skin protected from the sun at all times after an IPL photofacial treatment and to not pick at your skin. While you should see some visible results after the first session, your skin will reach its optimal results after several IPL sessions. Dr. Saxena recommends approximately 3 – 6 treatments performed about four weeks apart.
