Top Skin Fixes You Can Get From Your IPL Photofacialposted September 26, 2019
If you’re like us, you put a major priority on your skincare. After all, it’s no fun to face the world with a face full of fine lines, oversized pores, or discoloration. And while beauty products like leopard print sheet masks and pore strips sure are fun with a glass of wine and Lizzo on full blast, sometimes you need to break out the big guns and address the root of the issue for a more holistic skin care approach. Whatever your issues are — sun damage, aging, large pores, acne, or scarring — IPL photofacials are here to the rescue.
Austin Intense Pulsed Light Treatment
An IPL photofacial, also known as laser photo rejuvenation, is a non-invasive procedure that uses precise amounts of intense pulsed light (IPL) to improve your skin’s clarity and texture for a more clear, even, and youthful appearance. The damaged tissue below your skin’s surface absorbs this light, which stimulates collagen production and causes the blood vessels beneath the epidermis to constrict. The result of this innovative and time-reversing science? Your skin takes on a clearer, smoother, and more youthful look, with noticeable improvement of sun damage, rosacea, large pores, scarring, brown spots, small blood vessels, and fine lines. Best of all, this 30-minute treatment can work its magic on your face, neck, and chest.
What Skin Issues Does IPL Treat?
Each photofacial treatment is specifically tailored to address your unique skin concerns and skin type for a fully personalized treatment. If you suffer from any of the following, a science-backed IPL photofacial is about to become your new best friend.
IPL Treatment for Rosacea
Rosacea is a common inflammatory skin condition that results in redness on the nose, cheeks, chin, and forehead, as well as inflamed blood vessels. IPL for rosacea use specific wavelengths of controlled light to reduce redness, inflammation, and uneven skin tone. The controlled heat also helps to destroy the inflamed blood vessels that contribute to your skin’s redness. After treatment, your vessels are reabsorbed, and your overall redness and flushing is alleviated by up to 80%.
IPL for Acne
Oh, acne. First it was there to make your teenage years as angsty as possible. Now makes a surprise visit in your twenties, thirties, or even forties. Thankfully, IPL works to remove the excess oil and dead skin cells that clog pores and contribute to breakouts. If you’re suffering from severe or cystic acne, a dermatologist is your best bet. But IPL is a winning weapon to help battle blackheads, whiteheads, and pimples. Best of all, you’ll be able to say sayonara to daily topical products that dry out your skin.
IPL for Signs of Aging
Unfortunately, there’s no miracle serum or cure that can stop time. However, IPL helps slow the effects of time on your face. By treating a deeper layer of the skin, an IPL photofacial stimulates collagen growth, which reduces the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and discoloration. Your photofacial results will result in a healthier and more youthful skin texture overall.
IPL for Discoloration & Brown Spots
Whether you’ve got unwanted freckles, age spots, or dark patches from sun damage, an IPL photofacial helps combat discoloration for a more even skin tone. The light pulses from photo rejuvenation target the pigmented areas — without affecting the healthy surrounding tissue — for a brighter skin tone.
Dark Under Eye Circles
They’re cute on raccoons, so why not on us? These pesky rings are caused by different factors, both genetic and environmental, but most often your blood vessels close to the skin’s surface are to blame. IPL treatments won’t damage the outer layer of your skin, but will close off any vessels or capillaries just below the surface, which will reduce their overall appearance, helping to alleviate dark circles.
