“Dermacenter Tip of the Month” – IPL
Before we get into all the reasons why an IPL photofacial is great, let’s cover the basics. For starters, an IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) therapy is used to treat sun damage, wrinkles, stretch marks and age spots. IPL is also known as photorejuvenation or photofacial. Treatments can be used to erase mild sun damage, brown spots, freckles or irregular pigmentation on the face, neck, chest, hands, arms, shoulders, back and legs. If you suffer from severe acne and experience issues combating the redness and inflammation caused by acne, IPL treatments can help. IPL can help eliminate large pores and thus reduce the appearance of acne on your skin without the need to constantly apply topical products that dry out the skin.
If you suffer from rosacea or any other type of skin condition that diffuses redness into the skin, IPL photofacial therapy is a great treatment solution for reducing the appearance of redness and helping create an even and natural complexion. Have you noticed any broken capillaries around your nose or on your cheeks? We can treat those with an IPL photofacial!
While IPL isn’t necessarily an anti-aging solution, it does have lasting effects in helping reduce the signs of aging such as wrinkles, sunspots and other indicators of aging. By treating a deeper layer of the skin, IPL stimulates collagen growth and helps improve the skin’s texture, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Another great benefit of IPL photorejuvenation procedures is that they can be done in conjunction with other treatments such a microdermabrasion, chemical peels, Microneedling, and other facial skin treatments that target the outermost layer of the skin. Since IPL treatments target the deeper layers of the skin, they can safely be performed with other treatments that target the outermost layer of skin.
