If you are in search of a gentle but effective way to refresh your skin and regain a youthful complexion, you may want to ask your doctor about intense pulsed light or IPL photofacial. IPL is a non-invasive therapy that can reduce the signs of age, and dramatically improve the appearance of the skin. But what are some of the other benefits of IPL treatments.
Intense pulsed light (IPL) is a light-based technology that is used in a range of skin care treatments. IPL therapy involves the use of intense bursts of light. It is a gentle treatment that requires little or no downtime.
Most patients require 3-5 IPL treatments to achieve the desired aesthetic results. A session can take anywhere from 30 to 90 minutes, but this depends on the size of the area being treated.
IPL is versatile enough to treat a variety of skin conditions. It is well-known for its anti-aging benefits, and is regularly used to treat fine lines and wrinkles, as it stimulates the production of collagen.
IPL is also beneficial for treating pigmentation issues such as sun damage, melasma, rosacea, and facial thread veins. IPL emits multiple wavelengths of light that are attracted to the dark melanin pigment in the skin. The light is then converted into heat when it hits the pigment, and selectively destroys it, effectively reducing the dark spots.
Light treatment is an excellent skin rejuvenation tool, but the procedure must be done by experienced professionals.
