Having Rosy Cheeks is one thing, but having ruddy, red skin is another. Do you suffer from redness around your nose and cheeks? An IPL ( Intense Pulse Light Treatment) is often the solution we offer at Neu Look Med Spa to get rid of facial redness. Often times redness is caused by broken capillaries. Broken capillaries, commonly known as spider veins, or by medical terminology telangiectasias, are tiny blood vessels that we see on the surface of the skin,” says Manhattan plastic surgeon Dr. Mark Schwartz. These can occur from sun damage, skin trauma, or are genetic. The IPL treatment helps close off the blood supply to these broken capillaries, leading to less redness.
Another concern that Neu Look Med Spa patients have is red marks left over from previous blemishes. This is typically called Post Inflammatory Pigmentation. Postinflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH) “ is an acquired hypermelanosis occurring after inflammation or injury that can arise in all skin types” according to The Journal of Clinical and Aesthetic Dermatology. Here at Neu Look Med Spa we use IPL to treat this condition in patients who are Skin Type 1-3. Darker or Ethnic Skin Tones are not good candidates for this treatment as the laser is attracted to dark pigment in the skin and this can lead to unwanted complications. A much more safe and effective treatment for these patients is Cosmelan. Neu Look Med Spa always encourages a consultation to find out what treatment is best for you.

Many of my patients frequently ask me about how I treat myself. I’m a big fan of Fractional Laser Treatment because there is no downtime, no puffiness, and no pinkness — in fact, the image you see is me immediately after treating myself.*
Almost all of my new patients are surprised when they find out that it’s actually relatively painless too.* If you’re experiencing a loss of skin elasticity, discoloration, or you’d like to learn more about fractional, please give us a call!
