Dr. Michelle Yagoda, one of NYC’s only female facial plastic surgeons, is the first to offer Clareon intense pulsed light (IPL) therapy with krypton-based technology. (Krypton is a kind of “noble gas,” not Superman’s home planet.) Unlike conventional IPL therapy that uses xenon lamps, Clareon uses krypton to optimally target the wavelengths absorbed by blood and melanin for better results with less energy. New, patented krypton technology provides better and safer results in a fraction of the time it takes the competition.
Although IPL can also be used to permanently reduce excess hair on the face and body (read more about IPL for hair reduction), it also has amazing applications for skin rejuvenation, treatment of vascular lesions, pigmented lesions and acne.
IPL is a non-invasive treatment, usually delivered in a series of four to six sessions, spaced four weeks apart. IPL can be used on the skin of the face, neck, and chest and can improve the following conditions:
- Broken capillaries
- Fine lines
- Brown spots
- Uneven or rough skin
- Sun damage
Clareon was developed and is manufactured by Novalis Medical, LLC, a leading manufacturer of pulsed-light technology.
