Skincare Benefits of IPL Treatments
Summer’s a great time to soak in some sun, but we have to be careful—overexposure to UV light can lead to hyperpigmentation problems. With IPL photo facial treatments, sunspots and freckles can be reduced for a more even skin tone. This aesthetic treatment has plenty of benefits, not only for rejuvenating the skin, but also for removing unwanted hair. It’s completely non-invasive, and it brings back your skin’s youthful glow from the inside out.
What Are IPL Treatments?
IPL (intense pulsed light) treatments are a safe and effective way to improve the appearance of your skin. They are somewhat similar to laser treatments; the main difference is that IPL uses a broad spectrum of light that penetrates into the deeper layers of the skin.
This skin-rejuvenation treatment is a great way to restore and maintain the optimal health of your skin. It’s safe for a wide range of skin types and tones, and it can be used to treat a variety of skin concerns, including wrinkles, sun damage, and hyperpigmentation.
How IPL Makes Your Skin Look Younger
As you age, your skin’s ability to repair damage starts to dwindle, leading to fine lines, age spots, and a dull complexion. Genetics, environmental factors, and sun exposure can lead to these skin issues as well.
IPL treatments can address a wide range of skin issues. IPL treatments boost the production of collagen in the skin, resulting in firmer, younger-looking skin. The light energy is also absorbed by pigmented cells, in turn heating it and destroying the pigmented cells. This reduces the appearance of spots for a more even complexion.
The intense pulses of light can get rid of damaged capillaries to reduce the appearance of spider veins on the face. Additionally, IPL treatments can help alleviate dermatological problems such as acne and acne scars.
The most common areas for IPL treatments are the face and neck, as these are often the areas that show the most signs of aging and sun damage. On the face, IPL treatments can be used to target specific areas, such as around the eyes or mouth, or the entire face, creating overall improvement in skin tone and texture. IPL treatments can also be used on the neck and chest to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and sun damage.
The backs of the hands are another common area for IPL treatments, as they often show signs of aging and sun damage more quickly than other areas of the body. IPL can be used to reduce the appearance of age spots and fine lines on the hands, resulting in smoother, more youthful-looking skin.
