Everyone has skin damage. It’s virtually unavoidable in the world we live in. But that doesn’t mean that we have to take skin damage lying down. There are options available to treat the damage caused by skin disorders like acne and rosacea, the harmful UV rays of the sun, hyper-pigmentation and those skin issues brought on by aging.
The best skin repairing option available for all of these complications is called IPL. IPL is also known as Intense Pulsed Light. This procedure is photofacial or foto facial, meaning that it emits pulses of light over the skin that penetrate deeply and repair tissue. Say goodbye to blotchy, red skin with all its damage, and say hello to radiant, smooth, younger-looking skin.
How Do IPL PhotoFacials Work?
IPL photofacials are actually quite simple. They involve pulses of light that are very intense and penetrate deeply. One IPL photofacial session lasts approximately 30 minutes. The discomfort associated with this light therapy is only minimal. The deep light penetration causes the blood vessels and collagen below the top layers of skin to react and constrict.
As this happens, your age spots, sun spots, wrinkles and creases diminish. Redness just disappears. All of this is replaced by younger-looking, smooth skin. You will see some results immediately, but the great thing about these procedures is that over time, the results just keep getting better. After a few weeks, your face will be luminous and glowing in a way you probably never thought was possible.
