To learn more about IPL or other facial rejuvenation options, please request a consultation or call our office at 515-277-5555. Dr. Koch looks forward to meeting you to discuss how you can achieve your cosmetic desires.
Intense Pulsed Light – also called photorejuvenation or photofacial – is a treatment that can be used for hair removal and to treat:
If your skin has been discolored as a result of smoking, alcohol use, or hormonal changes, an IPL photofacial can smooth and refine your complexion. However, certain factors, including dark or deeply tanned skin, may make certain people ineligible for IPL. In consultation with Dr. Koch or one of our certified clinical aestheticians, patients will be able to determine whether they are good candidates for photorejuvenation.
A photofacial is a 30-minute procedure in which intense pulses of light are used to penetrate deep into the skin. IPL photorejuvenation then causes collagen and blood vessels below the epidermis to constrict, reducing redness and age lines. The procedure involves only minimal discomfort, comparable to a rubber band being snapped against the skin.
With his artistic eye, precise hands, and understanding heart, Dr. Koch enhances faces and changes lives.
Some women and men experience redness and swelling after treatment, which disappears shortly. You should be able to return to your normal daily activities following treatment. Most benefits of a photofacial occur gradually in the weeks following treatment.
Dr. Koch can discuss all of your options during your comprehensive consultation. Men and women interested in IPL are encouraged to request a consultation online or call our office at 515-277-5555 to schedule an appointment.
