What to expect with IPL treatment in New Orleans, LA, check what Dr. Lupo Mary at Lupo Center for Aesthetic and General Dermatology said
Patients in New Orleans, LA, and the surrounding communities who are ready to enhance their skin’s texture and tone are welcome to ask the team at the Lupo Center for Aesthetic and General Dermatology about the advantages of using IPL treatment.

What does IPL stand for?

IPL is an acronym for “intense pulsed light.” IPL is different from a laser, though similar in the way it can penetrate deep into the skin to improve texture and tone.

What to expect with IPL treatment

IPL treatment can be done right in our office by our trained, experienced staff. The device that emits IPL is cleared by the FDA for cosmetic and medical use, and the professionals who administer treatment have been trained and are experienced in ensuring safe and effective results. Patients relax in the treatment chair as their skin is prepped. Some patients also ask for a topical anesthetic that is applied onto the skin to numb it and ensure patient comfort throughout the procedure. Then, the device is run along the skin slowly to penetrate deep down into the layers of the skin to stimulate the production of collagen and elastin. This helps in remodeling the skin from deep down while providing surface changes as well.

What can IPL treatment address?

Dr. Lupo Mary at Lupo Center for Aesthetic and General Dermatology explains What IPL treatment can address IPL is a great treatment, as it can address a multitude of skin conditions with just one service. IPL treatment can be used for:
  • Poor skin texture and tone
  • Brown and red skin discoloration
  • Noticeable facial veins
  • Reducing red acne scars
  • Reduction of fine lines
  • Treatment of rosacea (flushing and redness)
  • Photoaging

What are the advantages of IPL treatment?

IPL treatment is safe, effective, and non-invasive, allowing patients to rejuvenate their skin quickly and easily without harsh laser services. IPL stimulates collagen production for improved skin texture, while allowing patients to go about their normal routine immediately after their treatment. Dr. Mary Lupo and the team at the Lupo Center for Aesthetic and General Dermatology finds that this treatment is often desirable because there is no downtime or recovery needed. Many patients may experience redness following their treatment session, but this can be disguised easily with makeup.

How long do the results last?

Many patients who undergo routine IPL treatment sessions for a skin concern will often see improvements within weeks, and enjoy the results for many years. This hinges on patients complying with treatment recommendations. Some patients may benefit from several IPL sessions over the course of several weeks. Patients are also urged to develop a skin care regimen that will maintain their results even longer. This may mean integrating in appropriate cleansers, moisturizers, toners, and sunscreen daily to keep the skin healthy and youthful.

Who is a candidate for IPL services?

Dr. Lupo Mary at Lupo Center for Aesthetic and General Dermatology explains Who is a candidate for IPL services All patients are considered appropriate candidates for IPL therapies.
