October is breast cancer awareness month, a perfect time to talk about IPL Photofacial treatments on the chest. Although the treatment is called a Photofacial, it can be done on other parts of the body too. In fact, the IPL Photofacial can be done just about anywhere on the body to treat dark spots, age spots, redness, broken capillaries, and other sun damage. After the face, the most common area treated with an IPL Photofacial is the chest. This is because the chest is frequently exposed to the sun and over time we see a lot of sun damage in this area. At A E Skin Dr. Alex uses the Sciton Forever Young BBL IPL Photofacial, which has several advantages over othe lasers. The large spot size and fast repetition rate make the treatment very quick. The chest is treated in about five minutes with two full passes. Other lasers can take over 30 minutes. The Forever Young BBL IPL Photofacial has many adjustable settings, allowing for treatment on just about any skin type. Additionally, the spot adaptors allow for strong treatment of specific areas such as age spots without affecting the surrounding areas. At A E Skin we provide a comfortable treatment. We apply numbing cream free of charge and use cold air during and after the treatment for comfort. Our patients who have had similar treatments at other offices comment on the comfort all the time. The best part is that Dr. Alex does all the treatments himself (we have no nurses or technicians), so you can be assured that you are in good hands with an experienced professional who has performed thousands of treatments.
