About Our Photofacial IPL Services
Metropolis Dermatology proudly helps patients in the Los Angeles area rejuvenate the look and feel of their skin with the Photofacial IPL. This versatile treatment can be used to address a myriad of cosmetic needs.
TREATMENT FOR FLUSHING AND ROSACEA
Rosacea is a chronic medical condition whereby the face, especially the cheeks, can be persistently red with small acne-like bumps. Over time, many broken blood vessels develop. We are a full-service medical dermatology office that offers both medical and cosmetic treatments for rosacea and flushing. Topical gels and cream, as well as oral treatments for rosacea, exist. Specific lasers that don’t require downtime can also more quickly reduce the redness and flushing on the face.
BROKEN BLOOD VESSEL TREATMENT
Broken blood vessels and angiomas are common on the skin due to a variety of factors. Once formed, they can grow and expand. Although not medically dangerous, they can be a cosmetic nuisance when they grow larger or more numerous. We offer laser treatment for the removal of these angioma and blood vessels. A series of treatments are generally required for clearance. Downtime is generally minimal.
MELASMA, BLEMISHES, AND SUN SPOT TREATMENTS
There are various treatments for blemishes and sunspots. We offer in-office medical grade products and chemical peels that can help lighten brown discoloration. In addition, we have lasers that are safe to treat these conditions. As with most treatments, expect a series to see improvement. The type of treatment or treatments will depend on a variety of factors, including your native skin color, size, and depth of the lesion, as well as your general health. A medical consultation is required prior to treatment.
