Gentle skin rejuvenation is actually possible
- Posted on: Feb 15 2016
The latest in modern skin rejuvenation procedures is designed to transform your skin and improve the appearance of:
• Sun damage
• Fine lines
• Large pores
• Other skin blemishes and imperfections
If you are ready to improve the appearance of your skin, but have yet to find a procedure that seems gentle, yet effective, an IPL photo-facial may be just what you need.
Discover what IPL can do for your skin
IPL stands for Intense Pulsed Light, a process that is used to penetrate deep into the skin. IPL photo-rejuvenation causes collagen and blood vessels below the outer layer of skin to constrict, reducing redness and age lines by increasing collagen. IPL targets the lower layer of the skin, simultaneously removing sun-damaged skin while stimulating collagen growth. Treatments can improve skin color, consistency and texture all at once. IPL is considered one of the safest light-based facial treatments available.
The procedure in practically painless
IPL produces minimal discomfort, and any redness or swelling that can occur after treatment improves fairly quickly, with benefits occurring gradually in the weeks following. Each treatment takes about 20-30 minutes, and involves little to no downtime. Most patients also report experiencing little or no pain during the procedure, describing the light pulses as feeling similar to a light snap from a rubber band.
Additional treatments can enhance results
Multiple IPL treatments, usually between three and five, are often necessary to achieve the best outcomes, depending on the area being treated and the severity of the problem.
The most important thing to remember
Following treatment it’s crucial to stay out of the sun for several days and to wear sunblock fulltime for at least two weeks. IPL therapy can give you excellent results that last for a year or more, but you must protect your skin after treatments.
