Photofacials, otherwise known as Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) therapy, work to repair and rejuvenate your skin by eliminating imperfections on the surface and stimulating collagen production. Radiant, youthful-looking skin has never been easier to achieve than with IPL treatments. Here are eight incredible benefits of an IPL photofacial and why you should consider it the ideal Springtime accessory.
Reduces Hyperpigmentation, Age Spots, and Sun Spots
While IPL Photofacials aren’t necessarily an anti-aging solution, treatments do have lasting effects in helping to reduce the signs of aging, including wrinkles, sunspots, age spots, and other indicators of age. By treating the deeper layers of the skin, IPL stimulates collagen production and helps to improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by enhancing the skin’s overall texture.
Reduces Any Skin Redness
Those who suffer from rosacea or any other type of skin condition that diffuses redness into the skin have found IPL therapy to be an excellent solution for reducing the appearance of redness. Treatments can target specific areas to create an even and natural complexion.
Helps To Control Breakouts
IPL treatments can help those suffering from severe acne and those who frequently combat redness and inflammation caused by acne. IPL can help to eliminate large pores and reduce the appearance of acne on your skin without the need for topical acne products that are prone to drying out the skin.
Repairs Small Blood Vessels
Small blood vessels that have become visible as you age can be corrected with IPL therapy. Additionally, enhanced sunspots or other pigmentation issues can be rectified with IPL to rejuvenate the skin.
Treatments Can Be Done Anywhere
The most common treatment location is the facial area; however, many patients who have experienced successful results with IPL have experienced positive results in other areas too. Other treatment areas include the neck, shoulders, and chest. With IPL therapy, any area of skin that is experiencing an issue can be rejuvenated with IPL photofacials.
Can Be Safely Combined With Other Procedures
IPL treatments can be done in conjunction with other treatments, including microdermabrasion, chemical peels, and other facial skin treatments that are designed to target the outermost layer of the skin. Since IPL photofacials target the deepest layers of the skin, they can safely be performed in combination with other treatments designed to target the outermost layers of skin for even better results.
The Process Is Quick, Easy, and Pain-Free
IPL photofacial treatments, on average, take from 15-30 minutes to complete. The quick and easy treatment process makes for the ideal treatment for those with busy lifestyles who need to return back to normal activities immediately. IPL treatments do not require any downtime before or after the procedure, which makes it one of the more convenient rejuvenation treatments available.
Treatments Are Affordable
While many skin treatments can be costly, IPL photofacial treatments often cost less than most laser resurfacing therapies. Additionally, treatments also provide patients with long-term results, unlike traditional spa facials.
