The Restorative Power of IPL Photofacials
As you age, your skin cells suffer from environmental damage. From sunspots to broken capillaries under your skin, you can start to notice unsightly marks on your face.
With an innovative new skin resurfacing treatment, you can repair the signs of damage on your skin. IPL photofacials restore a more even, youthful complexion to your face.
Intense Pulsed Light (IPL)
Photofacials use light energy technology to repair damaged blood vessels under your skin. When blood vessels break due to aging, sun damage, or lifestyle factors, it can cause redness and blotchiness. Intense pulsed light (IPL) therapy removes splotches to even your skin tone and to make your skin appear youthful.
The heat from the device penetrates layers of your skin to stimulate collagen production. In addition, the heat removes tiny broken blood vessels that cause redness in your complexion. Your skin tone will appear to be more even, vibrant, and youthful.
IPL photofacials treat dilated blood vessels without damaging your healthy skin cells. Bursts of light energy firm and tighten your skin, potentially taking years off your complexion. This skin technology is revolutionary for patients in need of anti-aging treatments.
IPL Photofacial Benefits
Photofacials can correct other skin concerns besides aging. If you have unwanted marks on your skin from trauma, sun damage, or lifestyle habits, IPL photofacials can reduce their appearance. Light energy is effective at skin resurfacing and renewal by making your skin produce more collagen.
Some of the skin concerns photofacials can treat include:
- Acne scars
- Large pores
- Broken blood vessels
- Aged skin
- Uneven skin tone
- Rough skin texture
With the ability to treat all of these potential skin conditions, IPL photofacials are revolutionary in the world of skincare.
What to Expect During a Photofacial
A typical photofacial treatment session lasts about 30 minutes. A handheld device emits the light energy onto your skin that repairs blood vessels and eliminates dark spots. Most patients report a warming sensation with minimal discomfort. This skin resurfacing procedure is tolerated well by the majority of people.
The light pulses break up the excess melanin that causes sunspots, freckles, and other dark marks. As the melanin dissolves, it gets reabsorbed into your skin and the marks go away. As damaged blood vessels receive the light energy, blood flows into the area to further dissolve skin markings.
Our highly skilled professionals perform photofacials with your comfort in mind. We will explain the entire process to you during your initial consultation. IPL photofacials should not require any downtime afterward.
Areas of Treatment
While you might think that IPL therapy is only for your face, many parts of the body can benefit from this treatment method. The IPL device can be applied to almost any part of your body that needs skin resurfacing.
Some popular treatment areas for photofacials include:
These areas are vulnerable to sun damage, aging, and redness. The IPL device uses the same light energy on all areas of your body. Patients can have multiple areas treated for optimal results.
One of the best parts about getting a photofacial is that there is no downtime or restrictions after the procedure. You may be advised to stay out of direct sunlight for the first few days after your photofacial. This is to protect the renewed skin cells from further sun damage, which the IPL procedure is designed to correct.
Besides avoiding sunlight for a few days, you are free to live life as usual. You can use all of the same creams, serums, and makeup products that you normally use. Some skincare treatments require excessive downtime and heavy restrictions on your skincare routine, but IPL photofacials are quick, convenient, and don’t require any aftercare.
It is a good idea to maintain healthy skin habits after your photofacial. Some of the skin concerns you are trying to eliminate can come back if you don’t take care of your skin.
For example, sunspots are caused by sun exposure without using facial SPF sunscreen. Keep up on your skincare routine to prevent redness, damage, and visible aging in the future.
Multiple Photofacial Sessions
Most patients need three to five skin resurfacing sessions to see the results that they want. Depending on the severity of your skin’s condition and your aesthetic goals, you should plan on getting multiple treatments.
Maintenance sessions will help keep your skin rejuvenated and resurfaced. IPL photofacial results can last from six months to a year. Plan to schedule additional sessions once or twice a year for optimal results.
During your consultation with our skincare professionals, you can learn more about your specific treatment plan. Sometimes we recommend fewer maintenance sessions for mild skin concerns. Other patients need more treatments to achieve their dream skin.
Your genetics, lifestyle habits, sun exposure, and skin conditions will determine your unique treatment plan.
