If you are experiencing mild sun damage, brown spots, freckles, or irregular pigmentation on your face, neck, or chest, then the Institute of Anti-Aging Medicine and Skin Spa can help with IPL photofacial. There are many things to know about IPL photofacial before undergoing your rejuvenation treatment, and here’s some important information to get you started.
Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) therapy uses a bright, intense light to heat up the deeper layer of the skin; this process stimulates the production of collagen. The heat destroys pigment cells, such as melanin, to help remedy uneven pigmentation, and collagen is regenerated to give the skin more structure so that it is full and younger looking. Along with sun damage, wrinkles, and freckles, photofacials can address broken capillaries, rosacea, hyperpigmentation, and spider veins to give you a clearer complexion and a more even skin tone.
You should expect to resume normal activities after your IPL treatment, as it does not require any downtime. There may be some side effects associated with this rejuvenating treatment, including:
By scheduling a personalized consultation with the professionals at the Institute of Anti-Aging Medicine and Skin Spa, you will be able to discuss your concerns about treatment and your goals to find out if you are a candidate for IPL photofacial treatment as well as how quickly you should expect to see results.
Being prepared for your IPL treatment will make the whole process go smoothly. It is recommended that you moisturize your skin thoroughly, stop smoking, refrain from certain medications and/or topical creams, and, of course, hydrate. You will receive pretreatment instructions at your appointment once you decide that IPL photofacial is the skin rejuvenation treatment for you.
