Offering IPL with New York and Long Island Photofacial Treatments
Throughout the course of your life, your skin does you many favors. It protects you from the wind, the cold, the humidity and the aridness. But your skin pays a price for that, drying and cracking in ways you aren’t entirely happy with. You may also develop wrinkles and lines due to environmental factors and due to genetic factors. In other words, those NYC winters don’t do your skin any favors. Many patients who come into Dr. Rokhsar’s Manhattan and Garden City offices for IPL (or intense pulsed light) therapy, remark on these factors.
Photo rejuvenation (photofacial) is a non-invasive skin health and restoration treatment that erases the damage inflicted on your skin from sun, aging and biological factors as well as Rosacea. The technology supplies a broad spectrum of light which reaches deep down within the skin, targeting pigment and vascular imperfections. The goals of therapy are a more even skin color and texture. If you’re looking for a New York or Long Island photofacial, Dr. Rokhsar is your go-to source.
How Does IPL Work?
Intense Pulse Light (IPL) corrects a variety of skin conditions such as brown spots and redness of the face, while offering a safe, non-invasive solution that can be tailored to your individual condition and skin type. The IPL can treat the imperfections on the face as well as the neck, chest and hands.
Using Light to Rejuvenate Your Face
The IPL is one of the most common technologies used to treat Rosacea. After a series of treatments this technology can significantly reduce the redness and visible blood vessels on the face. Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) treatments are comfortable and performed without downtime. Alternating between IPL and Pulsed Dye Laser treatments (Vbeam laser) is sometimes recommended when treating Rosacea.
After a series of IPL treatments, patients also report improvement in the texture of their skin and reduced pore size. With a series of treatments, IPL Photo rejuvenation can help restore your skin to a more youthful appearance without the prolonged recovery.

IPL Photofacial FAQ
What does the photofacial procedure treat?
Photofacials work to erase the damage inflicted on the skin from sun, aging, and various skin conditions. Intense pulse light can effectively treat rosacea, sun damage, flushing, uneven skin tone and texure, redness, broken capillaries, brown spots and age spots, as well as freckles on the hands, chest and face, wrinkles and enlarged pores.
Are photofacial treatments painful?
The intense pulse light is a comfortable, non-invasive treatment that does not administer micro-damage by wounding the skin, but instead feels like a gentle warming of the skin’s surface. A cold gel is initially applied to the skin over the area that will be treated and a pain-free treatment with long-term results will follow.
How long is the treatment?
Each session usually lasts about 30 minutes to one hour, depending upon the treatment site and skin condition. Treatments are generally administered in a series of two to six sessions, which will provide long-term results with no adverse results.
