IPL Photofacials safely and comfortably fade the appearance of rosacea, spider veins, skin imperfections caused by sun damage, age spots, and uneven skin tones.
As technology continues to improve at the speed of light, it becomes crystal clear that lasers are here to stay…and are becoming the treatment of choice for many of today’s cosmetic and clinical treatments. Our genes define who we are, how we will age, and at what pace visible signs of aging will appear. Often, we look into the mirror and see those parental resemblances, especially as we move through life into the senior years. Lifestyle, how we’ve chosen to eat, exercise or not, the amount of sun exposure we’ve had, unexpected trauma and disease, pregnancy and childbirth, hormonal changes, and more, all factor into how we age.
Many people look into the mirror one day and decide it’s time for change. They know age-defying procedures are out there and they want them! Dr. Rudderman offers only the safest, most reliable options available today.

What Skin Type Are You?
What does your skin type mean for you?
- If your skin type is 1 or 2, you have a high risk of sun damage, skin aging from sun exposure, melanoma, and other skin cancers.
- If your skin is type is 3 to 6, you still have some risk of skin cancer from sun exposure, especially if you’ve used an indoor tanning bed. You should still use sun protection even though your risk is lower than people with type 1 or 2 skin.
IPL is attracted to reds (vessels), and browns (pigmented spots). The light needs contrast to be effective to remove or lighten pigmented spots. The IPL sees all pigment and is not effective or safe for darker skin types.

IPL Photofacial Procedure
The elos™ hand held wand is passed over the treatment area allowing the focused light and bi polar frequency to restore your skin to a healthier, more youthful state. Most patients feel a hot pinch sensation that lasts only a fraction of a second, along with a warm tingling sensation. Most patients tolerate the treatment without anesthetic, but a topical anesthetic can be used for those with more sensitive skin.
