Vessel Treatments

Many different vascular imperfections can appear on your face, preventing you from looking and feeling your best. Laser or Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) vessel treatment gives you one convenient solution to treat them all — quickly and with minimal discomfort and no downtime.

Pulses of light target and erase broken vessels at the surface of your skin without harming surrounding tissue. As a result, you enjoy clearer skin that looks younger and fresher.

Laser or IPL vessel treatment can erase:

•    spider veins
•    broken vessels
•    telangiectasias

Take years off your face with laser or IPL vessel treatments that deliver:

•    Fast, easy removal of broken vessels and spider veins
•    Comfortable, convenient facial treatment sessions
•    Rapid recovery with no downtime
•    Non-surgical vessel treatment that’s ideal for all skin types

Light-Based Rosacea Treatment

Light-based rosacea treatment can reduce rosacea redness and “flushing” to reveal clearer, more natural-looking skin in just a few easy treatments, practically pain-free — providing a more permanent result than topical creams.

Light-based rosacea treatment can effectively reduce:

•    Rash, redness, and flushing
•    Acne-like papules, pustules, and patches
•    Rosacea swelling, inflammation, and discomfort

Laser and IPL light therapies deliver pulses of light to destroy capillaries responsible for contributing to rosacea. During the month following treatment, the body continues to absorb blood vessels, causing facial redness to significantly diminish. IPL is the most effective solution for fading redness and rosacea. IPL treatment sessions are administered by the specially trained dermatologists at Upper West Side Dermatology.

IPL rosacea treatments can improve redness, shrink pores and create a more even skin texture, offering remarkable results unachievable by oral medication or antibiotics. Light based treatments offer beautiful results within just 2 weeks, and minimal side effects when performed by a board-certified dermatologist. Unlike oral medications and creams, the ICON MAXG™ IPL targets precise areas without causing damage to surrounding skin.

Many patients affected by broken capillaries, spotty pigmentation or brown spots tend to see results after just one IPL treatment session. However, individuals suffering from rosacea require a series of 30 minutes light based laser treatments for optimal results.

Glow from the inside out with the ICON MAXG™ IPL rosacea treatment. Benefits of this procedure include:

•    Comfortable 30 minute treatment sessions
•    Boosts collagen production, which leads to a healthier complexion
•    Reduces swelling from rosacea, discomfort and redness


What is the Palomar ICON MAXG™ IPL?
The Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) Photofacial is a superior system that enhances your skins tone, texture and appearance. Our team of dermatologists target many skin issues, ranging from dark spots to rosacea on the face, neck, hands and chest. This non-invasive treatment is ideal for reducing hyper-pigmentation, rosacea and other skin problems because it is easily tailored to your specific needs and aesthetic goals.

How does the Palomar ICON MAXG™ IPL work?
While traditional lasers operate on a single-wave length, the Palomar ICON MAXG™ IPL employs a unique combination of Dynamic Spectrum ShiftingSM and dual-band filters for extreme precision and efficiency. This allows for more thorough heating across the entirety of the blood vessel, providing treatment for the skin’s deepest facial vessels.

When will I notice results from the Palomar ICON MAXG™ IPL Treatment?
Most patients enjoy healthier skin 2 weeks after their IPL treatment. At this point, the body naturally gets rid of damaged cells and clears broken capillaries away, revealing a healthier and smoother complexion. Facial rejuvenation with the Palomar ICON MAXG™ is a non-surgical procedure that offers unparalleled results and faster healing times than traditional methods.

Am I a candidate for the ICON MAXG™ IPL Treatment?
Individuals looking to reduce signs of aging, rosacea, redness and hyper-pigmentation without undergoing surgery can benefit from light based laser therapy. Optimized light technology is beneficial for clearing vascular and pigment related lesions.
