Overtime, our skin is constantly exposed to harmful environmental factors such as the sun. When combined with the natural aging process, complexion flaws such as uneven texture and tone can take a toll on the quality and health of skin. Thankfully, the professionals here at Texas Laser and Aesthetics Academy offer personalized IPL photofacial treatments for renewed and younger-looking skin.
What is Intense Pulsed Light Photofacial?
IPL, or intense pulsed light, is a specialized treatment that harnesses the healing power of light energy in order to diminish complexion flaws in areas of the face, neck, and hands. This form of light therapy successfully works to correct a variety of skin imperfections by promoting the natural rejuvenation of healthy skin tissue. Once delivered, the light energy is absorbed by damaged tissue within the underlying layers of skin. This is effective at triggering a cellular response for the natural production of collagen and improved blood circulation. WIth this revitalizing remedy, you can reclaim a vibrant and healthy complexion!
What to Expect
During an initial consultation and skin analysis, a personalized treatment plan is created that is tailored to you and your skin needs. Prior to beginning the process, a numbing topical can be applied to the surface of skin to ensure optimal patient comfort. The skin is then cleansed with a topical gel solution. The specialized IPL device is then held to the targeted treatment area and works to emit rapid pulses of light energy – delivered to the underlying melanin layers of skin tissue. The precise and quick delivery of the energy is absorbed by blood vessels, lesions, and melanin within the area without harming any of the surrounding tissue. Collagen production is also activated for improved hydration and skin firmness. As your body continues to regenerate healthy tissue within the area, you can notice visible improvements in your complexion. Following treatment, the gel solution is removed, and sunscreen should be applied to skin for added protection during the healing process.
Treatments typically last about 30-60 minutes, and there is no required downtime afterwards.
There are many benefits that IPL treatments can offer including:
- Diminish brown spots
- Reverse sun damage
- Correct hyperpigmentation
- Eliminate visible superficial veins
- And more!
