Looking younger may hinge less on a complexion that’s lineless than on one that’s clear. Science supports this supposition. Research shows that uneven skin tone can make you look a decade older. So while you’ve been furiously applying night creams and other elixirs on wrinkles in hope of turning back the clock, other blemishes—age spots, redness, enlarged pores, and adult acne—have been adding those years back.
Don’t despair, though. There is a bright side: uneven skin tone is actually easier to correct (or at least conceal) than wrinkles, and certain procedures, such as Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) facials, can actually heal them over time.
Intense Pulsed Light facials have been in the spotlight recently because of the amazing and dramatic results they produce. Canada’s Star Phoenix recently reported on an older woman’s dramatic lifestyle makeover using a combination of microdermabrasion and IPL facials. The results were overwhelming: even with just one IPL treatment, the woman’s complexion was more even, clear and radiant. Within a matter of weeks, the woman easily looked over ten years younger.
With all the hype surrounding IPL facials, you might be wondering how they manage to turn back the clock so effortlessly.
IPL facials work by using a broad-spectrum light source that penetrates multiple layers of the skin. This type of photofacial primarily targets the lower layers of skin while leaving the top layers of skin unaffected. The heat generated from the light promotes healing of the skin within, treating a number of different dermatological issues, including large pores, wrinkles, uneven skin tone and broken capillaries. IPL facials also stimulate collagen production, which plumps up the skin, giving you a fresher look.
IPL facials are especially beneficial to adult acne sufferers. In fact, they are becoming widely recognized as an effective solution for those suffering from mild to moderate inflammatory acne. Specific wavelengths of light target bacteria in the skin, as well as inflamed sebaceous glands that contribute to breakouts. Besides clearing up pustules and active inflammation, IPL facials have the added benefit of improving the appearance of facial scaring, which is an unfortunate, but common, outcome of chronic acne.
IPL photofacials work relatively fast. Generally, between three and six treatments are necessary to achieve the best results. IPL treatments are usually less expensive than laser treatments, so you might want to try that first and see what kind of results you get. IPL facials are ideal for people with busy schedules because they are minimally invasive. Side effects are rare, with redness in the treated area typically short-lived and a normal appearance restored within hours of the facial.
