IPL Laser

The Spectrum IPL is one of the most advanced lasers on the market. It has filters that can be used in Skin Rejuvenation mode to target dark spots, Vascular mode to target unwanted redness and blood vessels with rosacea, and Acne Reduction mode to treat the p. acnes bacteria. This is a healthy option for patients who don’t want to take antibiotics for acne. We think that this laser is best for treating pigmented skin patches associated with aging and the sun, as well as spider veins and broken capillaries as seen in rosacea. A series of 3-4 IPL laser treatments is often needed.

Typically, the procedure is repeated 2-4 times spaced 4-6 weeks apart. However, it can be performed as a single treatment.

The beautiful skin diet

In 2001, I read The Wrinkle Cure by a fellow dermatologist Nicholas Perricone MD. His idea of lowering inflammation in the skin and body to fight aging and disease was revolutionary. Still today, science supports the idea that beautiful skin begins at the grocery story. The anti- inflammatory diet is made up of super foods, antioxidants, and foods that lower inflammation. The most important ingredients are the antioxidants from fresh vegetables and fruit and the amino acid building blocks from protein. Protein is necessary to maintain and repair the body on a cellular level. Salmon and other cold water fish such as sardines, herring and trout are rich in anti inflammatory omega 3 essential fatty acids which keep the skin radiant and supple. Wild salmon has astaxanthin, a super carotenoid antioxidant as well. Olives and olive oils are a good source of fat in our diet. Extra virgin olive oil
