Our skin can be abused quite a bit over the years without us even realizing it. At some point, practically everyone will begin to notice cosmetic issues, such as sun spots, acne scars and irregular pigmentation. An IPL Photofacial is one of the most effective non-surgical treatment options to help patients even out their skin tone, lessen the appearance of pores and make old scars disappear. This amazing technology can also be combined with other cosmetic treatments to takes years off of your appearance.
Understanding Skin Blemishes
When patients begin to notice skin blemishes, such as sun spots, age spots and broken capillaries, over-the-counter products will no longer be useful. Some preventative measures can be taken to avoid these issues, but changing your lifestyle habits will not always be enough. Everything from your genetics to your career will have an impact on your skin, and some of these problems are completely unavoidable for many people. If you are tired of covering your skin with makeup to reduce the visibility of skin blemishes, then you might be the perfect candidate for an IPL Photofacial.
The Ideal IPL Photofacial Candidate
An IPL Photofacial will not completely change a patient’s appearance. Instead, this treatment is carried out to lessen the visibility of common cosmetic issues. The ideal patient will be a relatively healthy adult who is unhappy with the appearance of their face or hands due to blemishes. This includes minor rosacea, broken capillaries, fine lines, enlarged pores and discoloration from the sun.
During your first consultation at our office, you and our cosmetic professional can decide if this procedure will help you meet your cosmetic goals.
IPL Photofacial Technology
An IPL Photofacial utilizes the power of intense pulsed light technology to stimulate the deeper layers of a patient’s skin. Unlike many other non-invasive procedures that only treat surface blemishes, IPL technology focuses on the dermis. This produces long-term results without damaging the outer layers of skin.
Your Procedure and the Results
Since this is a non-invasive procedure, there is absolutely no downtime at all. IPL Photofacials generally take around 30 minutes to carry out, depending on how large of an area must be treated.
Around two or three weeks after your procedure, the damaged and discolored skin removes itself to reveal the healthy skin below. Depending on the state of your skin, the results could last for 12 months or longer.
