As soon as users start seeing results, often having begun treatment on their face, they tend to move on to other problem areas of the skin, such as the neck, shoulders, and chest. The photofacial rejuvenation procedure can be performed anywhere you have skin problems.
The IPL procedure can help clear your skin if you have small blood vessels that have become visible, sunspots, or irregular pigmentation.
It is possible to combat the redness and inflammation caused by acne with IPL treatments if you suffer from severe acne. By eliminating large pores, IPL can reduce acne on your skin without the need to constantly apply dry, topical products.
With IPL photofacial therapy, you can reduce the appearance of redness and help create a more even, natural complexion if you have rosacea or any other type of skin condition that diffuses redness into the skin.
Although IPL does not necessarily treat anti-aging, it does help reduce signs of aging such as wrinkles, sunspots, and other indicators of aging. With IPL, collagen is stimulated and the skin’s texture is improved, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by treating a deeper layer of the skin.
In contrast to regular facials, IPL photofacials provide long-term results and are more cost-effective than other long-term options such as laser treatment.
Another advantage of IPL photorejuvenation procedures is that they can be combined with other facial skin treatments such as microdermabrasion and chemical peels. Compared to other treatments that target the outmost layer of skin, IPL treatments target the deeper layers of the skin.
In most cases, facial treatments these days are time-consuming and require downtime. A photofacial can take anywhere from 15 to 30 minutes with IPL treatments, so it’s easy to fit into people’s busy lives. Furthermore, there is no downtime following IPL treatments, so you can go right back to what you were doing before the procedure.
Approximately 90% of patients have no pain during IPL photofacial procedures, while a small percentage experience a slight sensation. A topical anesthetic applied 60 minutes before the procedure can significantly reduce any discomfort you may experience.
For those who wish to remove mild sun damage, freckles, irregular pigmentation, and light brown spots from their face, neck, and chest, IPL is an excellent treatment option. It generally takes several treatments for brown spots, or “lentigines” as they are known in medical terminology, to fade away. Most patients will need between four and six, but it varies from patient to patient. Patients will begin to notice some of the benefits of an IPL photofacial right away. In order to maintain healthy and youthful skin, some people may need occasional maintenance treatments.
An IPL laser treatment uses non-invasive laser light to safely treat wrinkles and scars as well as age spots. There are many different wavelengths of light that IPL emits. As a result, the light scatters rather than focusing on one point and penetrates below the skin, causing less damage to the top layer.
Wrinkles are most commonly caused by aging. Wrinkles can also be caused by environmental factors, genetics, and hormonal changes.
Collagen and elastin fibers in our skin degrade with age, resulting in less support for the skin. Wrinkles are caused by the sagging and loss of volume of the skin caused by this process.
The IPL light targets lose collagen and destroy it. As a result, the body’s natural collagen production is stimulated. The skin tone improves and wrinkles appear less prominent as a result of the formation of new collagen.
