If you are concerned about how your complexion looks because of dark spots, sun damage, or fine lines, Schoemann Plastic Surgery can offer you a skin examination at our Encinitas, CA office to see if you’ll benefit from Lumenis intense pulsed light therapy (IPL). A Lumenis IPL photofacial is a revitalizing skin treatment for adult women and men with hyperpigmentation and wrinkle concerns on their face and neck. IPL may not be an invasive procedure, but it can be very effective and produce impressive results. Plastic surgeon Dr. Mark Schoemann, or a member of his team, sends intense wavelengths of light that raise the temperature of the skin just enough to start the natural regeneration process and boost collagen production. In time, you should see a healthier complexion with a more even tone and fewer spots.
A Lumenis photofacial works deep within the layers of your skin to correct many complexion problems (especially sunspots and brown lesions) with little or no recovery time. The ideal candidates for IPL treatments at Schoemann Plastic Surgery may have many issues with their skin, including sun damage, rosacea, hyperpigmentation (brown spots), wrinkles, rough texture, large pores, flushing, melasma, age and sun spots, or dilated capillaries. Dr. Schoemann will assess your skin to see if you are a candidate for a photofacial during your private consultation, and may even recommend other procedures that will complement your results.
