LimeLite Facial at The Peer Group for Plastic Surgery in northern New Jersey offers dramatic results for removing brown spots and red spots from the hands and arms, as well as brown pigmentation from sun damage on the face, neck, and chest. This light-based treatment is also useful in removing red areas caused by broken capillaries and rosacea. Treatments are performed with a chilled hand piece and a cool gel, minimizing any discomfort. The team of skin care professionals and board-certified plastic surgeons at The Peer Group use the Visia skin assessment during every consultation so they can find and treat damaged skin effectively and easily.
Before the laser treatment begins, a cold gel is applied to the area being treated, and patients are given protective eyewear to wear throughout the procedure. Using the IPL hand piece, the physician pulses light to the skin’s surface. Without damaging the skin, the laser is absorbed by the dilated vessels or pigmentation. The heat from the laser causes damage to the vessel or lesion, so the body begins a natural healing process. After the treatment is complete, patients can immediately return to normal activities. Redness or blotchiness may last for up to 1-2 hours after the procedure.
"Dr. Colin Failey came highly recommended to me. I searched for a long time to find the right dr who I would be able to trust in. Dr Failey operated on me last week and I cannot say enough about this man. He has a bedside magical and totally honest way about him. I am very happy I met Dr Failey in my life. He corrected all the former mistakes that was performed on me by previous dr. Also the entire staff at the Peer Group is wonderful. Made me feel comfortable and confident about what I was going to experience . God Bless Dr Failey"- Anonymous / RateMDs / May 22, 2016
"Amazing Lift - Can't say enough about Dr. Lange. Compassionate, calming, pleasant, reassuring, confident and most of all excellent surgical skills. - - I had a facelift, brow and lip lift on 9/2/16 for my daughters wedding on 10/7, less than 5 wks later by wonderful Dr. Lange in Peer Group. I new I was in excellent hands from the consult. He's soft spoken, calm, observant, reassuring, and skillful. I had a brow lift and top lip lift in addition to facelift. He would not do blepharoplasty or chemical peel as I would not be healed enough with makeup for the wedding pictures. But I have a firm jawline and all fat and neck skin are gone. Despite this no one, not even daughters, recognized that it was done. Only that I looked beautiful and in my 50's instead of pushing 70. Now I'm ready for the eyes and chemical peel around the mouth with Dr. Langel of course. Face still numb and swollen but no pain and is going down. Also, I only had a little discomfort for first couple days and bruising resolved quickly. PS the 3 facial glycolic peels by the esthetic Ian , are included in the surgical cost. I have Laura and she's very nice. Wonderful group."- S. / RealSelf / Oct 11, 2016

What to Expect@headingTag>
A physician or trained medical staff member can perform an IPL Photo Rejuvenation treatment on patients. The procedure is gentle, safe and non-invasive, which allows for little to no recovery time. A full series of the IPL treatments includes 3 to 4 sessions, with each session lasting 20 minutes every 3-6 weeks. Some patients may experience a slight sting, similar to the snapping of a rubber band, while the skin is being treated. All IPL treatments are customized to each patient’s skin type and condition to provide the best possible, long-lasting results.
IPL Photo Rejuvenation FAQs@headingTag>
Improvement can be seen after each treatment, but the best results can be seen a month after a full series of treatments is completed. It’s common for patients to respond differently to each treatment session. Patients will see a gradual improvement of redness, blotchiness, sunspots and age spots over time.
Most patients experience mild side effects like temporary swelling, redness, crusting, or superficial blisters. These subside within a day or two after the procedure.
Do I Need to Prep for IPL?@headingTag>
Patients about to undergo an IPL laser treatment are usually asked to avoid self-tanners and excessive sun for 2 to 4 weeks prior to the procedure. They should discontinue the use of minocycline, tetracycline, doxycycline or Retin-A/Renova several days before each treatment.Patients should also protect the treated areas with sunscreen between sessions.
Are Patients Sun Sensitive?@headingTag>
Patients will not be sun sensitive, but they should keep in mind that excessive sun exposure will affect the results of the procedure. Patients should always wear sunscreen to protect their skin and reduce their risk for developing redness, brown spots, wrinkles and skin cancer.
Why so Many Sessions?@headingTag>
A full series of IPL Photo Rejuvenation sessions are required in order to provide gradual, natural-looking improvement with little to no risk of the patient’s safety. Multiple sessions also allow for longer-lasting results.
