Intense pulsed light photofacial treatment, or IPL photofacials, uses a light-emitting device to target specific areas of concern on your skin. It then delivers pulses of light that are absorbed by the melanin and red blood cells in your skin while generating heat in the problem area. The heat helps to emulate damaged areas and create a nice, smooth, and flawless appearance. This treatment can help improve your skin’s appearance and restore a youthful glow.
Top Benefits of Intense Pulsed Light Photofacial Treatment
There are several benefits that come with this type of treatment.
Improves Sun-Damaged Skin
The sun can wreak havoc on your skin. Sunlight has the ability to break down the skin’s collagen and make it weaker. This increases the chances of wrinkles developing and skin sagging. It can also result in age spots. An IPL photofacial treatment can penetrate sun-damaged skin and restore a dewy, even complexion.
Can Help Treat Stubborn Acne
Acne can cause scarring and have other lasting side effects. Intense pulsed light photofacial treatments can help reduce inflammation and redness while killing harmful bacteria on the skin’s surface. Repeated treatments effectively encourage the skin to shed old layers and eliminate scar tissue while renewing its outer layer.
Eliminate Spider Veins and Capillaries
IPL photofacial treatments can help dissolve broken capillaries on the skin and reduce the appearance of spider veins. This helps to provide a more youthful complexion. Additionally, many with rosacea find this treatment effective in reducing the redness associated with this condition, creating a more even and clear appearance on the treated skin.
Prevent Premature Signs of Skin Aging
As we age, our skin can thin out and lose its elasticity. It starts to wrinkle and sag and can even show sun spots and other signs of aging. IPL photofacial treatment can help to reverse these signs of aging and create healthier and more youthful skin.
