Sun exposure results in dark patches, brown spots, and freckles on both men and women. We begin to see signs of sun damage as our skin ages. Regardless of skin type or age, intense pulsed light (IPL) therapy can improve lackluster skin. Photofacial therapy with IPL is one of the most effective noninvasive skin rejuvenation options available today.
It is good news that the certified experts at Luminous MediSpa can reduce the appearance of those imperfections with an IPL photofacial. An IPL treatment heats the surface of the skin enough to boost collagen production and stimulate skin regeneration. Skin tone becomes smoother, the complexion becomes healthier, and sun damage is reduced over time.
In addition to minimizing age spots, sun spots, acne scars, and rosacea, IPL treatments use broadband light to treat a variety of skin issues. It usually takes 20 to 30 minutes for an IPL treatment to be completed. After the patient’s face has been cleaned and dried, protective eye shields will be provided. Light pulses will be delivered by a handheld device over the target area to penetrate the layers of the skin. Treatment generally causes a fast, pinching sensation with minimal discomfort for most patients. The procedure does not require injections or incisions, which gives patients the benefit of no downtime.
Because IPL targets the melanin in your skin, skin specialists often recommends it to reduce pigmentation. The sun’s rays cause pigmentation and discoloration, which are often caused by prolonged exposure to the sun. Two to three initial IPL treatments can significantly improve the appearance of dark spots. Furthermore, IPL therapy covers a large area of skin and has little post-procedure downtime.
Treatments with IPL can be performed on the face, neck, chest, arms, and hands. The first set of treatments usually consists of two to three treatments spaced about a month apart, followed by two to three maintenance treatments every year.
IPL therapy immediately reduces skin discoloration after the initial treatment. Keeping your skin healthy and looking young, promoting collagen growth, preventing sun damage, and giving it a healthy glow are all benefits of maintenance treatments.
It is also possible to combine IPL therapy with other facial skin procedures, such as chemical peels and microdermabrasion. IPL targets the deeper layers of skin, while these treatments target the surface layer.
You will notice sun damage and other irregularities on your skin after your IPL treatment has been completed. IPL treatments at Luminous MediSpa typically produce visible results after the first session, but for the best results, we recommend scheduling 3 – 6 treatments about four weeks apart. When patients care for their skin and keep it protected from the sun, IPL results can typically last for years. In addition to boosting collagen production, an IPL treatment every 6 – 12 months as part of your skincare regimen can also reduce the signs of aging. With intense pulsed light therapy, patients can achieve dramatic results in a short period of time.
Your treated areas may appear pink or red and swollen immediately after your IPL treatment. In 24 hours, these effects will start to fade. Discoloration and sun spots may become darker or more noticeable, and other blemishes may appear. As the skin heals from the inside out, these spots will eventually flake off.
The initial results of an IPL treatment can be seen in a week, and the final results can be seen in four to six weeks. To get the results you want, you may only need three 20- to 60-minute sessions.
