Procedure Technique

After customizing the necessary treatment plan, the IPL system will be adjusted to fit your unique needs. Before starting the treatment, your skin will be cleansed and your eyes will be protected with eye shields. Your technician will apply an ultrasound gel to protect the skin and will gently go over the treatment area, focusing on what your main concerns are. The necessary time to complete the treatment will change depending on the amount of areas that are being treated, the condition that is being addressed, and whether any additional treatments are being used in combination along with your IPL. Generally the treatment will be completed in one hour or less. 

You will have missed an opportunity if you don’t schedule a consult with Dr. Haidenberg - I am very excited to provide my review for Dr. Haidenberg. From my first consultation, it was clear that Dr. Haidenberg puts his patients best interest first. When looking at patients pictures that had similar surgeries to mine, my first observation was that patient outcomes were natural, younger and fresher, but everyone looked like themselves. Aside from Dr. Haidenberg’s personal care for his patients, his technical expertise and ability to explain the procedure, set’s patients up for solid expectations. If you take the time to read his reviews, they each will testify to his skill as a surgeon and that his attention to detail are unmatched. He also collaborates well with Dr. Yaker his partner, which magnifies their assessment, surgical plan, and after care which further enhanced my confidence in Dr. Heidenberg. Beyond the excellence demonstrated by Dr. Haidenberg throughout the process, the competence, care, and personal interest offered by each member of his staff was also unsurpassed. From the moment I entered their office on my first visit and throughout follow ups, the welcoming relaxed environment and dedication to excellence makes recommending Dr. Haidenberg a pleasure and an honor. Regardless your interest in plastic surgery or desired outcome, you will have missed an opportunity if you don’t schedule a consult with Dr. Haidenberg. You’ll find my appraisal is not exceptional, and like others, just tries to express appreciation for a doctor that cares as much about your outcome as you do.

Great doctor and staff. Couldn’t be more please with current and past procedures. Not only have they done major surgery but also minor procedures. Dr. Yaker has always been able to correct past mistakes easily. The staff is friendly and welcoming. Kristin the on call nurse is top notch. Wouldn’t think to go anywhere else.

Amazing Experience - I had a tummy tuck, Breast lift, arm fat removal and lipo with Dr. Haidenberg - I had a tummy tuck, Breast lift, arm fat removal and lipo with Dr. Haidenberg on June 23rd of this year. I have never been happier in my life. Not only did I barely experience any pain, but I was up and out at dinner (against docs orders) within two weeks, drains and all. I love this doctor and his staff. They are all the best.

What to Expect

After the session, your skin may look and feel like a mild sunburn. A cold compress and a soothing lotion will be applied along with SPF. Patients will be given post-treatment care instructions and will be advised to reduce exposure to the sun and avoid extraneous exercise for 24-48 hours. Otherwise, patients are usually able to return to their regular daily routine. Results may be seen immediately, but best results are generally observed 2-4 weeks post treatment. 3-6 sessions are typically recommended (depending on the severity), then maintenance treatments either once a quarter or twice a year. Your skin consultant will suggest the proper amount of procedure to achieve your preferred outcome.

Expected Cost

The expected cost for a full series of IPL Photo Rejuvenation treatments is $275 for one session or $600 for a series of 3 sessions. The laser treatment can be purchased in a series, or by individual sessions. Individual sessions cost between $100 and $900, also depending on the area being treated.

About Us
Quick Results?

Improvement can be seen after each treatment, but the best results can be seen a month after a full series of treatments is completed. It’s common for patients to respond differently to each treatment session. Patients will see a gradual improvement of redness, blotchiness, sunspots and age spots over time.

Side Effects?

Most patients experience mild side effects like temporary swelling, redness, crusting, bruising or superficial blisters. These subside within a day or two after the procedure.

Do I Need to Prep for IPL?

Patients about to undergo an IPL laser treatment are usually asked to avoid self-tanners and excessive sun for 2 to 4 weeks prior to the procedure. They should discontinue the use of minocycline, tetracycline, doxycycline or Retin-A/Renova 3 days before each treatment, and may be asked to stop taking aspirin or ibuprofen a week before the procedure to help prevent bruising. Patients should also protect the treated areas with sunscreen between sessions.

Are Patients Sun Sensitive?

Patients will not be sun sensitive, but they should keep in mind that excessive sun exposure will affect the results of the procedure. Patients should always wear sunscreen to protect their skin, and decrease the appearance of redness, brown spots, wrinkles and skin cancer.

Why so Many Sessions?

A full series of IPL Photo Rejuvenation sessions are required in order to provide gradual, natural-looking improvement with little to no risk of the patient’s safety. Multiple sessions also allow for longer-lasting results.
