Ultraviolet light from the sun can speed up the production of melanin in the skin, and cause age spots from overactive pigment cells. Uneven skin tone and discoloration can appear on the parts of your body that are the most exposed to sunlight and can stretch small blood vessels on the outer surfaces of the skin, giving the skin a mottled, reddish appearance.
To treat the areas of the body that have been overexposed to the sun, Cosmetica Plastic Surgery & Anti-Aging uses Intense Pulse Light (IPL) Therapy to undo visible skin damage, improving the color and skin tone of treated areas.
Our professionals will select a treatment based on patients’ skin type, and level of sun damage to the skin. The IPL treatment uses a handheld device to apply a high-intensity light source area of treatment, while also correcting other skin conditions such as fine lines, scars, acne, spider veins, or birthmarks. After an Intense Pulse Light Treatment, your skin will have a more youthful appearance due to the removal of damaged cells, and evening of skin tone.

The Cosmetica Plastic Surgery & Anti-Aging Patient Safety Program involves our patients, surgeon, nurses, staff, and patient families or other caregivers all working together toward a common goal: Assuring the safest possible surgical experience.
Steps to Ensure Your Safety
At Cosmetica Plastic Surgery & Anti-Aging, your safety is our number one priority. To make sure that we do everything possible to maintain your safety, we have formalized our steps into The Cosmetica Plastic Surgery & Anti-Aging Patient Safety Program which includes these elements:
We ask you to describe in detail any medical problems, medications you take, and any previous surgeries. This allows us to understand any special needs you may have.
We send anyone with questionable or known medical problems to see their primary care physician or any necessary specialists prior to recommending surgery.
Since all of our surgical patients have been deemed to be good candidates, it has proven to be quite safe for you to recover at home with contact from our providers.
We uphold the strictest hiring and educational criteria in our nursing staff to make certain you are well cared for by qualified staff before, and after your procedures.
To ensure our facility remains in compliance with State and National Safety Standards, we voluntarily employ the services of Universal Healthcare Consulting.
