Are you tired of using makeup to cover up acne scarring and brown spots on your skin? Although there are plenty of ways to hide blemishes temporarily, such as skin redness and sunspots, it can be frustrating to have to do so.
Fortunately, there are ways to reduce the effects of sun damage and improve your overall complexion so that you don’t need to wear makeup every day. IPL Photofacial is a high-tech treatment that uses light technology to improve the appearance of your skin.
If you want to feel better about your skin, then keep reading to learn more about this innovative procedure and how it can give you long-lasting results.
How Does an IPL Photofacial Work?
You may have heard of IPL (intense pulsed light) for hair removal. This procedure uses light wavelengths to destroy hair follicles and prevent hair regrowth.
Using the same light technology, IPL Photofacial sends light energy to certain areas of the skin using a handheld device, targeting issues such as skin redness and sunspots. This process is effective, as the device sends out multiple wavelengths of light.
Once the light wavelengths hit the skin, they heat the skin’s cells, which can then be broken down and removed by the body. Since multiple wavelengths are emitted simultaneously, several skin issues can be targeted in one session, making it a very effective treatment.
What Are the Benefits of IPL Photofacial?
IPL Photofacial is an excellent treatment for many skin conditions, including the following:
Acne and acne-related scarring: Not only can IPL remove acne scars, but it can also kill the bacteria that causes acne, reducing the risk of it returning.
Skin redness: IPL can cause the outer layer of skin to shed itself, revealing a more even skin tone below.
Brown spots on skin such as birthmarks and age spots: The pigment of spots can be targeted to reduce their appearance.
In addition to these perks, IPL Photofacial treatments can improve the appearance of sun damage and treat scarring and fine lines. Essentially, IPL Photofacials will leave your skin looking smoother and more youthful.
In terms of the treatment itself, there are many benefits to regular IPL Photofacials. For one, IPL Photofacials can take as little as 30 minutes, making them perfect for busy clients. Furthermore, they offer longer-term results than regular facials. The IPL Photofacial is also pain-free and works well alongside other facial treatments such as chemical peels.
How Long Do the Results Last?
One of the great things about IPL Photofacial treatments is that the results can last for years. However, a few factors can affect the longevity of the results.
Firstly, depending on the seriousness of your skin issues, you may need several IPL sessions. This is relatively normal, as most people don’t get the desired results after just one session.
You can also increase the effectiveness of IPL by taking good care of your skin after treatment sessions. Investing in a good skincare routine is vital, as is using sunscreen and avoiding UV light as much as possible.
