How does

Candela Nordlys ipl work

Candela Nordlys IPL, or Intense Pulsed Light, operates on the principle of “selective photothermolysis” to address a wide range of dermatological and aesthetic concerns. During treatment, short pulses of high-intensity, broad-spectrum light are emitted onto the skin's surface. The unique characteristic of this technology lies in its ability to selectively target specific chromophores within the skin. These chromophores, such as melanin in pigmented lesions or hemoglobin in blood vessels, absorb the light energy, converting it into heat.

As the targeted chromophores absorb the light and heat up, they are effectively damaged or destroyed, depending on the treatment objective. For example, in hair removal, the heat damages the hair follicles, leading to reduced hair growth. In the case of skin rejuvenation, the heat stimulates collagen production and treats various pigmentation issues like sunspots, freckles, and age spots. The body's natural healing mechanisms then come into play, gradually improving the skin's appearance and texture over time. The versatility of Candela Nordlys IPL allows for precise customization of treatments, making it suitable for a wide array of skin concerns.

What sets Candela Nordlys IPL apart is its ability to provide these benefits with minimal downtime. Most individuals can resume their regular activities immediately after treatment. Additionally, the results are typically long-lasting, making it an attractive option for those seeking non-invasive solutions to enhance their skin's health and aesthetics. Whether it's rejuvenating skin, reducing unwanted hair, treating vascular lesions, managing acne, or addressing rosacea symptoms, Candela Nordlys IPL offers a versatile and effective approach to skin care.

Treatment Aftercare

Proper aftercare following Candela Nordlys IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) treatments can help optimize results and minimize potential side effects. Here are some general guidelines for aftercare:
Sun Protection: Protect your treated skin from direct sunlight and UV radiation for at least a few days post-treatment. Apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen with a high SPF when going outdoors.
Cool Compress: If you experience any mild discomfort or redness, you can apply a cool, clean compress to the treated area to soothe the skin.
Avoid Harsh Skincare Products: Refrain from using skincare products that contain strong acids, retinoids, or other potentially irritating ingredients for a few days post-treatment.
Gentle Cleansing: Use a mild, non-alcoholic cleanser to gently cleanse the treated area, removing any debris or residue. Avoid harsh or abrasive products.
Moisturize: Apply a gentle, hydrating moisturizer to keep the skin well-hydrated and promote the healing process.
Avoid Heat: Stay away from hot baths, saunas, and steam rooms for a few days post-treatment, as they can increase skin sensitivity.
Limit Makeup: If possible, avoid applying makeup to the treated area for a day or two to allow the skin to breathe and recover.
It's important to note that the specific aftercare instructions may vary depending on the individual and the treated area. Consult with your provider for personalized guidance on how to care for your skin following Candela Nordlys IPL treatments. Proper aftercare can help ensure the best possible results and reduce the risk of complications.

I’ve struggled with eczema all my life and the various amounts of creams/ointments given to me by other places never helped enough. Dr.Patel is the only dermatologist I have met that explained everything to me clearly so I understood my issue clearly and gave me other options. My hands have never looked so clear in my life. Super happy with his service and his whole office is very nice/professional. Highly recommend!

- Mariah C

Dr. Patel is very knowledgeable and helpful. First time I went in he spotted my problem just by looking and immediately assigned me treatment. After following his regiment for a couple of months, it has completely healed. He also was able to check several other areas and prescribed medications for those areas. I highly recommend.

- Geoffrey W.

I started suffering from hormonal acne last October and visited many different dermatologists to find a sustainable solution. Dr. Patel is the only doctor who was committed to healing my skin. He saw me every 2 weeks to monitor my treatment and had effectively cleared my skin since I began seeing him in February! I am extremely grateful for him and his entire practice.

- Emily S.

I am very happy I found Dr. Patel he knew right away my hair loss issue, diagnosed it and began the treatment regiment. He is so knowledgeable and takes good care of you. I’ve seen rapid results in just 2 visits.The front desk staff are courteous and professional as well, and the wait times are very minimal. I highly recommend seeing Dr. Patel for your all your skin concerns, you won’t be disappointed.

- Christina A.

Dr. Patel is amazing. Not only is he great, but he will resolve any issues presented to him. I first came to see him for some skin tags and moles I wanted to remove, which he did. Also, I brought in my mother who was suffering from furuncle … something i’ve never heard from, but Dr. Patel recommended some medicine and my mom skin has cleared up 100%. I love his extreme intelligence and ambition to help with any dermatology issue. I would definitely recommend Dr. Patel to anyone dealing with any skin issue.
