The skin on your face is one of the biggest components of your appearance. A number of problems visible on your skin — such as brown spots and spider veins — can negatively impact how you look and also how you feel about yourself. Although there’s a lot you can do to care for your skin yourself, some problems require professional treatment.

Taking great care of you and your skin is a priority at Northshore Skincare in Covington, Louisiana. Led by Dr. Sherri Casey, our full-service medical aesthetics practice offers a wide variety of skin care treatments to support you looking your absolute best. Dr. Casey has years of experience treating spider veins and skin pigment problems using the safe and effective IPL photofacial treatment.

What are spider veins?

Your heart pumps blood around your body through your arteries and veins. When one or more of the valves in your veins is damaged and unable to push blood back to your heart, blood can pool in the veins and become visible weblike blue or red lines under your skin.

Although spider veins are not usually dangerous, you may want to have them removed because they look unattractive.

What are pigment problems?

Melanin is what gives your skin its color. People have varying amounts of melanin, which results in lighter or darker skin. Sometimes, the melanin clumps in one or more areas, appearing as small brown spots or large dark patches, a condition known as hyperpigmentation. 

What is an IPL photofacial?

An intense pulsed light (IPL) photofacial is a type of laser therapy that can treat a variety of conditions. The IPL safely penetrates your skin and stimulates your body to heal itself, repairing damaged tissue. This treatment can address a variety of skin issues, including spider veins, brown spots, and other pigment problems.

Having gorgeous skin is an essential part of looking beautiful. Various skin conditions can affect your skin’s appearance, and the IPL photofacial treats many of them in one easy, safe procedure completed in our office.

How the IPL photofacial works

The IPL photofacial treatment acts on hyperpigmentation by using heat to break up the concentrated areas of melanin, triggering your body to eliminate them. IPL also can seal off your damaged spider veins, eliminating the pooled blood by forcing it to travel through healthier neighboring veins.

What the IPL photofacial treatment is like

Prior to your treatment, Dr. Casey identifies your aesthetic goals and explains how the IPL photofacial works. Once you’re comfortable, you put on dark glasses as eye protection, and we prepare your skin by cleaning it and applying a gel. Then we use a special laser tool to direct powerful pulses of light into your skin.

You may feel a slight stinging sensation during treatment, which takes about a half-hour, but the treatment is safe and doesn’t damage your skin. For best results, you likely need multiple treatments with some time in between them, which is important to allow for healing from within.
