IPL photofacials are very effective when it comes to skin rejuvenation. They can be done without the need to take time away from normal living in order to recover from the treatment. In fact, individuals receiving them can immediately return to most all of their regular activities upon completion of the session.
IPL photofacials utilize intense pulsed light to produce results. They work by attacking the signs of aging at their source. If you want a rejuvenated look to your skin and you are interested in something that is non-invasive, you should schedule some time with our specialist in order to review the advantages of IPL therapy.
IPL therapy is a very good option for getting rid of unwanted lines and wrinkles. These things develop when the skin starts to loosen over time. In the lower portion of your skin is a substance called collagen. It is a protein that the body produces in order to give the skin fullness. This will keep it firm and tight. When you start to get older, your skin will not produce collagen at the rate it did when you were younger.
With less collagen present, the skin will begin to loosen. Loose skin becomes apparent when wrinkles develop or the skin begins to sag. Crow’s feet, which are those fine lines that develop next to the eyes, are one of the most common early signs of aging. Wrinkles across the forehead and around the mouth are also common. You may even notice some sagging of the skin around the neck and jowls.
IPL photofacials can help to restore tightness to the skin by stimulating the growth of collagen in the skin. During the treatment, high-intensity light pulses are emitted into the skin. Wavelengths are selected that will focus most of the energy into the deeper layers of the skin, where the collagen is produced. The energy will warm the tissue. This is what starts the growth process that will, over the following months, lead to a level of collagen that is closer to what it was during youth. The natural result of more collagen is tighter skin.
You might also be interested in an IPL photofacial if you have unwanted sunspots on your skin. They most likely formed when the melanin began to concentrate in small patches in various places. Since melanin creates pigment, these places will be darker than the surrounding skin. It was likely overexposure to the sun’s UV rays through the years that caused this. Melanin will increase in response to the sunlight so the skin can protect itself against damage. The melanin usually spreads out evenly on the skin and becomes visible in the form of a tan. Overexposure, however, can cause it to gather in spots. IPL photofacials can help to disperse the concentrated melanin and give you a skin with a more even tone.
