For those who have looked into the mirror and noticed fine lines, hyperpigmentation, sun spots, or even age spots and desire to have them removed, then you likely want to know what your options are. Many men and women don’t want the hassle of surgery. Other methods may not seem to be as effective or they require more recovery time than you’re willing to give. There is one powerful option still left that is far easier than surgery and requires very little recovery time. This procedure is known as IPL facial treatments.
How It Works
IPL facial treatments, often called photorejuvenation, essentially harnesses the power of light to treat blemished skin. The wavelength in light is often attracted to certain pigments. With the right kind of device, the wavelength can be controlled, so it can be distributed more easily to the right kind of pigment in your skin. Take the example of hyperpigmentation. That extremely red color can be found by the wavelength and thus destroyed by it. With its destruction, your hyperpigmentation is gone and your skin tone is even once more.
More than that, IPL facial treatments also work to stimulate collagen production. For women who have reached a certain point in their lives, the skin produces far less collagen than it used to. As a result, you often develop wrinkles and other blemishes. By using light energy to stimulate collagen production, those wrinkles can be smoothed out because they’re filled with the new collagen. In addition, the redness or sun spots or age spots are removed as well because the pigments are destroyed, and then new collagen is produced.
A few procedures are usually required for IPL facial treatments. This is to ensure that every problem area is taken care of in the event that it grows back before the light energy can completely destroy it. By keeping up with the procedures you can experience youthful-looking skin that is vibrant and even in tone for years to come.
Other Advantages of IPL
Besides the fantastic results you can have on your skin with facial treatments utilizing IPL technology, you also have all the advantages that the procedure brings with it.
