Gentle skin rejuvenation for the holidays (and anytime) is now easier than ever with intense pulse light photo facial (IPL). Many of our patients at Just The Right Curves have unwanted brown spots going into fall induced from summer sun. Other patients desire to reduce freckles, age spots, redness or rosacea in their skin. Years of sun exposure and general wear-and-tear leaves skin damaged and discolored, and sometimes with broken capillaries. If you suffer from any of these problems, this non-invasive treatment may be the approach you’re looking for.
What is IPL?
Simply put, light energy treats the condition of unwanted pigment in a 30-minute treatment. Intense pulses of light are used to penetrate deep into the skin. The multiple wavelengths of light are attracted to abnormalities in the skin. When the light interacts with these abnormalities, we say bye-bye to brown spots, redness, and broken capillaries. The light action causes collagen and blood vessels below the epidermis to constrict, reducing redness and age lines. Pigment irregularities are drawn to the surface of the skin, and the body sloughs them off. Our photo facial treats face, chest, neck and hands.
IPL also assists in smoothing and tightening the skin. It encourages collagen growth, as well as a reduction in pore size. It is beneficial for a patient to complete a series of 3 to 5 treatments, spaced approximately 3 to 4 weeks apart. After that we can move to a maintenance schedule.
The recovery from IPL is quite easy. Patients experience slight redness to the skin and possibly very slight swelling. These symptoms may last a day or two. The unwanted pigment turns darker, and then over the course of about 7 to 10 days these spots will actually lift off the skin and flake away.
