ARE YOU BOTHERED BY CREPEY OR PATCHED SKIN AFTER YEARS OF UV-EXPOSURE?
Do you feel embarrassed by darkly pigmented skin? Are fine lines and wrinkles becoming harder to manage? Would you like to combat visible signs of aging and sun damage without surgery? If so, you may be a good candidate for non-invasive Photofacial treatments by IPL.
What Is an IPL Photofacial?
IPL (Intense Pulsed Light), also known as a Photofacial, is a non-invasive procedure to correct superficial imperfections. The IPL photofacial treatment is typically used to treat sun spots, spider veins, hyperpigmentation, and improve skin tone by targeting of hyperpigmented or otherwise damaged skin cells with the use of specific intense light wavelengths.
As the light penetrates your skin, it's converted into heat, which then destroys any hyperactive skin cells in the process and causes the pigmentation to disperse. Hyperpigmented spots will begin to rise to the surface of your skin and eventually flake off, leaving you with a much more consistent, smooth, and overall more youthful-looking face. If you are looking for ways to achieve a clear, luminous complexion without any downtime, an IPL treatment might be the best treatment option for you.
HOW DOES IPL/PHOTOFACIAL WORK?
When undergoing the IPL photofacial procedure, your practitioner will gently deliver advanced IPL wavelengths to heat the dermis. This process causes collagen to expand and the blood vessels to constrict.
The procedure is a relatively painless one, with patients merely describing a sensation of rubber bands snapping against their skin as the light pulses. The entire IPL photofacial procedure should only take around 20 to 40 minutes to complete, depending on the size and amount of areas that are being treated, of course.
Immediately following the treatment, you can expect to return to your daily activities without the need for any downtime. You will likely experience some redness and sensitivity, along with some slight swelling, although this usually only lasts for a few hours as IPL photofacial recovery is generally easy.
