The Benefits of IPL Photofacial
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF IPL
WHAT IS IPL?
The IPL Photofacial is also known as Intense Pulsed Light. It is a light therapy that releases light throughout the skin. What this does is penetrate the second layer of your skin (dermis) without harming the first layer (epidermis).
When these pulses of light are emitted, the pigment and red blood cells in the skin absorb it. This causes heat to be generated, which destroys the unwanted pigment. This activates the skin's natural healing process without damaging the skin's dermal tissue. When your skin begins to repair itself, it will produce proteins such as collagen and elastin.
The IPL Photofacial helps with improving the appearance of:
- acne scars
- age spots
- skin texture
- and more!
THE BENEFITS OF IPL PHOTOFACIALS
CAN TREAT ACNE
One of the amazing benefits of the IPL photofacial is its ability to kill harmful bacteria! It also helps with reducing redness and inflammation. Doing IPL photofacials consistently will help encourage the skin to renew and restore its outer layer. Eventually, this gradually eliminates acne and acne scar tissue.
CAN PREVENT AGING AND TREAT SUN-DAMAGED SKIN
Believe it or not, the sun plays a huge role in how we age. We get fine lines, wrinkles, and lose elasticity because of our exposure to UV radiation. Sun exposure breaks down our collagen, which long term makes our skin weaker, causing fine lines and wrinkles. Sun exposure also causes sunspots and hyperpigmentation on the face and body.
With the IPL photofacial treatment, we can reverse the effects of sun damage and prevent aging! The IPL helps dimmish pigmented cells that are found in the dermis. When these cells are dissolved, the body begins to produce new collagen which replaces our damaged skin.
IPL CAN BE DONE ON MULTIPLE AREAS
The IPL photofacial can be performed on multiple areas on the body, not just the face. It can also be used on the neck, upper chest, arms, hands, and legs! So, if you have sun damage on other parts of the body besides your face, don’t worry because we have a solution! If you’re unsure about whether this is the right treatment for you, don’t worry because we offer consultations specifically to see what treatment would be best for you!
IPL IS A QUICK TREATMENT
IPL photofacial treatments take no more than half an hour to complete. It’s quick making it convenient to schedule around your normal schedule. Here at VIP Laser, we recommend anywhere from three to six treatments, however, everyone is unique and has different needs and priorities! To get a better idea of how many treatments you’ll need, we recommend scheduling an in-person consultation.
