IPL laser treatments are just one of the tools we have to reverse or slow down the signs of aging. This noninvasive cosmetic treatment, also called an IPL photofacial, applies focused light to the lower layers of skin to eliminate damaged skin and stimulate new collagen production. Collagen is the protein that is most responsible for healthy, plump skin. Here are some of the key benefits of this unique cosmetic treatment.
Prevent Signs of Aging
IPL laser treatments don’t just reduce the signs of aging, they can also prevent aging. A new 10-year study out of California has proven that IPL photofacials prevents signs of aging such as sagging skin, discolored skin, or lines and wrinkles. In fact, women who got the treatments three to four times per year as a preventative measure had better, plumper, smoother skin at the end of the 10 years than at the beginning of the time period.
Fast Effective Treatment
IPL laser treatments only take from 30 to 90 minutes depending on the treatment area. There are no known side effects of this treatment, and it is FDA approved for photofacials. You will begin to notice results after a few treatments, which should be spaced about a month apart.
The most common use of IPL photofacials is to correct pigmentation issues. Sun damage can cause discoloration, brown spots, sunspots, or hyperpigmentation. Acne, acne scars, and enlarged pores are also remedied by IPL treatments. Uneven skin tone and texture, either due to aging or due to conditions such as melasma, can also be remedied with IPL photofacials.
