IPL Fractional

Tighter skin doesn’t need to be a distant memory! Skin Care Doctors offers a new and effective method of tightening skin on the face, abdomen, upper arms, and other areas, through infrared light pulses.

The IPL Fractional technology can deliver these treatments safely, comfortably and effectively. The IPL Fractional delivers visible results with little to no downtime after treatment.

How does it work?

The IPL Fractional delivers infrared light by factional beams deep into the dermis, stimulating the body’s natural healing response. This allows for the creation of new tissue, recuing the appearance of skin laxity on the face, neck, and abdomen. The result: a tighter skin appearance.

What makes these treatments different from others?

Rather than using one large beam to deliver infrared light into the skin, the Fractional approach delivers an array of small beams. The beams create heated columns in the dermis, which are surrounded by an unaffected area. The unaffected tissue promotes faster healing.

Are these treatments safe? Are they painful?

The Fractional method is much safer and more comfortable than the bulk heating approach of many other systems because it leaves a portion of the skin unaffected by the light pulses.

This treatment uses 3-stage cooling. It cools the skin before, during, and after each light pulse, so you feel little discomfort during the treatment.

What should I expect after treatment?

You may experience lingering warmth, tightness, or redness in the treated area, which fades within a few hours of treatment. Because a portion of the skin is unaffected by the light pulses, there is a quick healing process. Generally, you can receive a treatment and go back to work or to other activities without any recovery time.

A series of treatments at 4-6 week intervals may be required to achieve the desired result of tighter skin in the face, arms, abdomen, and other areas.

Your physician will be able to give you more information about the treatment including costs and expected results.
