LaserAway Introduced Me to IPL Photo Facials
You know how the old song goes, right? Well, we’ve given it a twist. We’re proud to present The Twelve Days of Awesome Beauty! And we’ve got a treatment you’ll want in your holiday stocking this season…
Want to look your sharpest for that special holiday party? Want a procedure that offers maximum results but is non-invasive and easy on the wallet? Then you should check out IPL photo facials! IPL photo facials are a unique skin treatment that uses gentle pulses of light to beautify and reverse sun damage, redness, age spots, and acne flare ups. Best of all, they’re non-invasive and non-surgical.
Are IPL Photo Facials Effective?
There’s a good chance photo facials will meet your beauty needs. Photo facials work their magic on most skin types and tones, depending on the type of photo facial (IPL or LED) used. What type of photo facial should you use? That depends on a number of factors. IPL photo facials, which use a broad spectrum light source that penetrates multiple layers of skin, are most ideal for people who have:
- Fair, untanned skin
- Shallow acne scars or large pores
- Fine lines and wrinkles caused by aging
- Irregular pigmentation caused by sun damage, aging or medication
- Brown spots or facial redness
- Broken capillaries and spider veins
People with darker skin tones or tanned skin do not respond well to treatment with IPL photo facials, and people with deep wrinkles, scars or severe acne or rosacea will likely see insufficient results.
A Touch of Holiday Magic
Photo facials make it easy to realize your beauty goals. How? The science behind the different photo facials is unique. IPL photo facials work by using a broad-spectrum light source that penetrates multiple layers of skin. This type of photo facial primarily targets the lower layers of skin (dermis) while leaving the top layers of skin (epidermis) unaffected. The heat generated from the light promotes healing of the skin within, treating a number of different dermatological issues.
Expect the Best
The treatment process itself is straightforward. Before the IPL treatment a medical professional will apply a cold gel to the target area, and you’ll be required to wear protective eyewear. The treatment, lasts around 20 minutes, during which a medical professional will gently apply the IPL hand piece to your skin so that healing light rays can be delivered to the skin’s surface using precise pulses. Most IPL procedures are virtually painless, but more sensitive people might experience mild discomfort – a feeling not unlike a rubber band being snapped against skin. Photo facials typically require little to no recovery time. Following treatment, you can return to your normal activities. More intense IPL treatments, however, may produce sunburn-like symptoms for up to two weeks after the procedure.
You can expect outstanding results with IPL photo facials. But you must be diligent about scheduling treatment sessions. IPL photo facial treatments call for five treatment sessions spaced three weeks apart to obtain desired results. In some cases those results can be seen after only the first treatment! And skin continues to improve with each successive treatment.
