What Exactly is IPL Photofacial?
With time, your skin bears the brunt of damaging factors like age, poor health, sun exposure, and more. IPL PhotoFacials is a non-invasive skin treatment method that uses advanced Cynosure Icon Max G technology to give you youthful, blemish-free skin. It can improve how your skin looks and feels with the help of light energy.
It can undo age spots, dark spots, spider veins, birthmarks, redness, etc., on the face, neck, chest, hands, and other parts of the body. IPL PhotoFacials produces visible results in a wide range of skin conditions. Some examples are as follows –
- Acne breakouts
- Acne scars
- Birthmarks or skin lesions
- Broken blood vessels
- Brown spots (age spots or liver spots)
- Discoloration or pigmentation due to hormonal changes
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Redness or Rosacea
- Scars and blemishes
- Spider veins
- Sun Spots
How Does IPL Work?
During a typical IPL session, a specially-designed device to emit light is used on the target area for complete skin rejuvenation. The device projects pulsed light beams of different wavelengths, and its energy heats the cells. Thus, it can address multiple issues simultaneously without hurting nearby tissues.
Your skin’s melanin and red blood cells absorb the light and get heated. This causes micro-injury without causing burns or damage to the dermal tissue in the deeper layers of skin. Instead, it initiates a healing process by boosting elastin and collagen production – and breaks down dark pigments.
As a result, the top skin layer with imperfections is removed, and new skin is formed. This new skin is youthful, glowing, plump, and tight. So you can see that without surgery or injectables, IPL can improve the appearance of your skin. And the secret behind it is poly-chromatic or broad-spectrum light.
That’s what sets this laser treatment part from others is that, their wavelength range is limited. What’s more, this treatment is customizable to suit your needs by adjusting light wavelengths, to penetrate deeper into the skin layers or target skin blemishes. So, in the hands of an experienced expert, IPL is a versatile light therapy for laser facials.
Benefits of IPL PhotoFacial
Clearly, IPL PhotoFacials is an effective cosmetic procedure. But why should you choose it over similar hair removal procedures or body and facial skin treatments? That’s because IPL PhotoFacial treatments offer a range of benefits that you can’t ignore. Let’s take a look at these benefits –
1. Wide Range of Skin Concerns
IPL is highly effective in treating various skin conditions. From sun damage to crow’s feet, from breakouts to scars – it can tackle a lot of different skin conditions, giving you smooth and beautiful skin texture and even an even tone.
2. Acne Control
IPL’s light pulses generate heat, killing acne-causing bacteria. It eases skin redness and inflammation. It also reduces the appearance of acne scars and large pores without topical or oral medicines.
3. Deep Skin Rejuvenation
Unlike makeup, PhotoFacial isn’t just covering up the superficial layers of your face for the temporary masking of flaws. It can penetrate the deeper skin layers for elastin and collagen growth to give long-lasting or permanent results. It starts to stimulate your skins natural healing abilities, for glowing results!
4. Prevents Premature Signs of Aging
Regular IPL therapy sessions can alter the gene expression of aging skin, and the skin cells start to act with youthful vigor. With more elastin and collagen production, the skin looks young… longer.
5. Eliminates Visible Capillaries and Broken Blood Vessels
IPL can fix the problem of broken capillaries, spider veins, and small blood vessel abnormalities by dissolving them when blood cells absorb the light. Thus, it’s ideal for diffusing irregular pigmentation, red blotches, etc. with the right medical laser technology.
6. Applicable on Multiple Body Parts
Don’t be thrown off by the name “PhotoFacial”! This treatment applies to different body parts like the neck, shoulders, hands, chest, and legs. And it can target multiple and wide areas simultaneously.
7. Customizable and Versatile
The pulsated light beams used in IPL can be adjusted to customize the wavelength effects of the treatment. That’s how it can address different problems, from sun spot removal to acne treatments, making it a very versatile machine.
8. Quick Sessions and Low Downtime
An IPL treatment session lasts between 20 and 60 minutes, depending on the target area. And once you’re done with this quick session, you can return to your normal activities with almost no recovery time!
9. Minimal Discomfort and Free from Complications
You only feel mild and temporary discomfort during the treatment, much like being struck by a rubber band. Other than that, you won’t experience complications. It also doesn’t cause scarring or infections.
10. Affordable Treatment Options
IPL PhotoFacial treatments are pocket-friendly. Each session can cost as low as $90, and the annual overall charges can be around $2,500, depending on the nature of the complication, treatment area, number of sessions etc.
