If you have age spots on your skin or damage from years of sun exposure, you may wear a lot of foundation to cover up the spots. With technological advances in the cosmetic industry, there are other, more permanent ways to achieve a smoother, more even complexion. Rejuvenating your skin with IPL photofacial treatment creates natural results and will save you the hassle and cost of buying and applying makeup every day.
Intense Pulsed Light, or IPL, photofacial treatment is one of the most popular procedures for those who live in sunny areas and have been overexposed to the sun over time. It addresses the effects of photoaging caused by sun damage, and has the added benefit of a small recovery period. For an effective anti-aging technique that utilizes modern technology, IPL therapy may be an option for you.
Photoaging from sun exposure causes damaging effects to the skin due to dangerous ultraviolet light. The UVA and UVB rays from the sun combine and cause gradual damage to the skin.
IPL treatments use high wavelengths in order to rejuvenate the skin and counteract the effects of photoaging. IPL does not peel the skin or remove layers like other treatments. Instead, a light-based treatment is applied with filtered light that targets superficial blood vessels, hair follicles, pigmented areas and other skin irregularities.
IPL is a great treatment for those who are concerned with complexion issues like sunspots, rosacea, hyper pigmentation, and broken capillaries. You will leave the office with a glowing, fresh, even toned skin that is long lasting. With the right aftercare, you may not have to have the process repeated for several years.
When you get IPL, you should notice an improved appearance in your skin. You will have a smooth complexion throughout your face that can be maintained over the long term with regular treatment and good skin care.
