What is IPL?

If you struggle with how your face appears because of dark spots or sun damage, Stalder Plastic Surgery can perform a skin examination at our New Orleans, LA office to see if you'll benefit from intense pulsed light (IPL) therapy. An IPL photofacial is a rejuvenating skin treatment for adult women and men with facial and neck hyperpigmentation issues. IPL may not be invasive, but it can be highly effective and create amazing outcomes. Dr. Mark W. Stalder uses intense wavelengths of light energy that heat the skin to ignite the natural regeneration process and increase collagen production. Over time, you should see a healthier layer with an improved tone and fewer spots.

What Are the Benefits of IPL?

It's not hard to see why IPL photofacials have become the treatment of choice for so many of our New Orleans, LA clients. Here are just a few of the benefits you can enjoy with IPL therapy at Stalder Plastic Surgery:

  • Revitalizes the skin for an enhanced look and feel
  • Neutralizes unwanted pigmentation and dark spots
  • Treatments are quick, simple, and involve little to no pain or recovery
  • Creates a more even, uniform skin tone

Am I a Candidate for IPL?

An IPL photofacial reaches the deeper layers of your skin to improve several complexion problems (particularly brown lesions and sun spots) with little or no recovery time. Ideal candidates for an IPL photofacial at Stalder Plastic Surgery may have many problems with their skin, such as rosacea, sun damage, brown spots (hyperpigmentation), rough texture, visible pores, flushing, freckles, melasma, sun and age spots, or spider veins. Dr. Mark W. Stalder will assess your skin to determine if you are a candidate for a photofacial during your private consultation.

How Does IPL Work?

IPL is performed inside our New Orleans office in about 20 – 30 minutes in our minor procedures room if no other treatments are performed. To prepare for the process, your technician will clean and dry the skin to be treated before protecting your eyes with special shields. The photofacial is administered using a handheld device that passes over the skin while emitting pulses of light energy. While most patients may have mild discomfort throughout the photofacial, it's usually tolerable for the quick treatment length.

IPL treatments do not require a recovery period. Immediately following your appointment, your skin may be red and swollen. This will subside on its own in several hours — it may be masked with makeup if you prefer. Our team recommends you apply a cream on the treated skin to decrease irritation and promote healing. It can also help to use an over-the-counter anti-inflammatory medicine to help reduce swelling. Over the next 2 – 5 days, the blemishes that rested under the skin will rise to the surface and then start to flake away. It's crucial to protect your skin from the sun at all times after an IPL photofacial and to not pick at your skin. While you will have some visible results after your first treatment, your complexion will typically achieve ideal results after several photofacial treatments.

About Us
How much does IPL cost?

Every patient case is unique, so your IPL cost will depend on your unique goals. Stalder Plastic Surgery offers monthly specials, and we take several payment methods. During your initial visit, your technician can estimate your cost and determine the number of treatments needed for optimal results.

How quick are the results from IPL?

Some results can usually be seen following one treatment, but the best results develop about one month after all your treatments. It is normal for your skin to see different responses following each session. You should notice fading of blotchiness, redness, and spots (age, brown, and sun).

What are the possible side effects of IPL?

You may experience mild, temporary side effects, like redness, swelling, blisters, bruising, or crusting. These fade in a few days. Your skin will be extra sensitive to the sun, and you should keep in mind that sun exposure will impact the results of the procedure. We also recommend using sunscreen to protect your skin and prevent problems like redness and spots.

From the day I met Dr Stalder he always asked me what I wanted rather than force anything on me. I trusted the process from the start and in the course of a year, the work done to my body is unbelievable. The more I heal the more beautiful everything is. From him to his 5 star staff, they are truly some wonderful people. My breasts look amazing!!! I still can’t believe how it all came together! Anytime I had a question him and his team were there to provide the answers almost in the blink of an eye! I am so honored to have worked with Dr Stalder and his team. I will never forget you all as I continue on with my life. You all were a special part of my breast cancer journey. Waking up to Abby checking on me also warmed my heart. She’s such a sweetheart ! I love you all and pray you continue to do an amazing job with individuals dealing with cancer. You have restored my dignity and helped me to love myself again.

I have fully recovered from my Diep flap procedure and reconstructive surgery from Dr. Stalder. I could not be happier with the outcome! Initially I was nervous to go thru the surgery because my situation was a little different. I had a prophylactic mastectomy with implants about 10 years ago and after multiple implant replacement surgeries due to issues, I also had a breast implant associated lymphoma scare. I was recommended to and sought consult with Dr. Mark Stalder. Dr. Stalder was able to resolve ALL of my issues! I couldn't be happier and really have appreciated Dr. Stalder and his amazing Team, Jess and Abby! Not only do my breasts look and feel amazing, the areas where tissues was harvested also look amazing, a nice little perk :) Thank you Dr. Stalder, Abby and Jess for everything you have done for me!

I had considered having a rhinoplasty for several years but was nervous that I would come out looking like a completely different person. Additionally, I had a severely damaged septum making it difficult to breathe through one side of my nose. After meeting with Dr. Stalder and the exceptional team at Stalder Plastic Surgery I was convinced that I would be in capable hands. Dr. Stalder took the time to listen to my concerns and answered all of my questions. I am currently 6 weeks post op and I could not be happier! Dr. Stalder made the changes that I had wanted for so long while maintaining the integrity of my nose. The subtle changes didn't make me look like a different person but rather a better version of myself! I am thrilled with the results and would absolutely recommend Dr. Stalder and Stalder Plastic Surgery for all of your needs and especially if you are considering surgery. If you are looking for a plastic surgeon, you should absolutely meet with Dr. Stalder. Currently I receive Botox at Stalder Plastic Surgery and I am always pleased with the very natural looking results. The office is stunning and the staff are kind and helpful. While I am not ready for anything else right now, I know that I will not trust anyone else but Dr. Stalder for my future aesthetic needs.

I had Botox done by Dr Stalder and it has been the best Botox I’ve ever received. I’ve been to plenty of different kind of providers for Botox but Dr Stalder did the best I’ve ever had. He’s professional but also easy going and easy to talk to about what you’re looking for. Jess and the rest of the staff are great at taking care of you to help you get the appointment that works best for you and making sure you are happy with your results. I’m looking forward to more treatments here at Stalder Plastic Surgery!
