IPL therapy is used to help give the skin a rejuvenated appearance by getting rid of some of the signs of aging, like lines and wrinkles. Many people also go through the treatments in order to remove those dark spots that sometimes show up as part of the aging process. If you’re looking for a non-invasive way to reduce many of the signs of aging, IPL therapy may be right for you.
The development of lines and wrinkles on the face is one of the most common signs of aging. They develop most often around the eyes in the form or crow’s feet. They also form as those horizontal wrinkles that run across the forehead. Wrinkles and sagging of the skin happens when the body stops producing collagen at the same levels it did during youth. Collagen is a protein that is found in the lower layers of the skin and helps give the skin fullness. As part of the aging process, the body naturally produces less of it. This reduction means the skin will lose some of the tightness and fullness. IPL therapy helps to stimulate the production of more collagen in your skin to help reduce wrinkles and fine lines.
IPL therapy is done in the comfort of our office and does not require you to have any downtime. It is done with the use of a specialized device that is passed across the surface of the skin. The device emits bright and concentrated light beams as it goes. Its purpose is to stimulate the skin to rejuvenate itself as it absorbs the energy.
When IPL therapy is delivered, the light is converted to heat as it is absorbed by the skin. It is designed so that the heat reaches the lower layers, where the collagen production takes place. The body responds to this heat by creating collagen. As the collagen grows, the fullness that was present before the levels started to diminish will return. The result is a face with tighter skin that is free of fine lines and wrinkles. This process can also help to diminish the appearance of broken capillaries, brown spots and acne. The full benefits will come about gradually as the collagen increases in quantity.
