Everybody deserves to love the face they see when they look in the mirror. If you are struggling with issues like acne or spotting and wish you weren’t, then an IPL photofacial may be the solution you are looking for. The photofacial takes advantage of intense pulsed light (IPL) to treat a variety of skin conditions and can help you achieve the look you’re after.
How it Works
When you schedule an IPL photofacial appointment, you will meet with a professional who can help you devise a treatment plan. Often this will include multiple sessions in order to more thoroughly address any conditions being treated.
Commonly, IPL therapy is used to treat conditions that result in discolored skin on the patient. The pulses serve to break up the pigment that creates the discolored skin. Once broken up, your body is then more capable of flushing the pigment out naturally, resulting in the diminishing of the colored area.
Another way IPL photofacial treatments can help your skin is by boosting collagen generation. Collagen plays a crucial role in keeping your skin looking full and firm, and the pulses increase the rate of collagen generation in the skin where it is applied.
What it Treats
IPL treatments are a safe and effective treatment, and most patients experience only minor discomfort and swelling for a period of just a few days. Common reasons to receive IPL therapy include:
- Acne and acne scarring
- Freckles, spots and other discolorations
- Sun damage from exposure to UV radiation
If you have spots or discoloration on your skin and you wish it would go away, IPL photofacial therapy may be the solution you are looking for.
