The Benefits of IPL Photofacials


Authored by:

IPL PhotofacialsIf your skin feels rough and uneven, even after applying topical creams or exfoliating, you may be happy to know that IPL photofacials can help you achieve a smooth and improved surface. This skin resurfacing treatment works well for all textures and tones of skin. Here is what you should know.

How Do IPL Photofacials Work?

The IPL in IPL photofocials stands for intense pulsed light. This treatment utilizes a light-emitting device to target specific areas of concern and deliver comprehensive, full-face rejuvenation.

Each pulse of light that is emitted by the device is absorbed by the red blood cells and pigment in the skin. After being absorbed, it generates heat, which emulates a superficial injury. This process activates the natural healing processes within the skin without burning or causing any harm to the dermal tissue

Top Benefits of IPL Photofacials

There are several benefits that you can expect from an IPL photofacial.

Treat Sun-Damaged Skin

The sun is often viewed as your skin’s worst enemy. Unfortunately, harmful UV rays can wreak havoc on your skin by breaking down the collagen and making it more susceptible to sagging and wrinkles. It can also weaken the skin and cause discoloration. An IPL photofacial can help combat the effects of UV rays by drawing out discolored cells and dissolving them.

Help With Stubborn Acne

Stubborn acne is not only uncomfortable and unsightly, it can also lead to scarring. IPL photofacials can help kill the harmful bacteria on the skin that causes acne, inflammation, and redness. It is important to note that you will need to stop using any systemic acne medication at least six months before treatment to receive the IPL photofacial’s full benefits.

Prevent Premature Skin Aging

An IPL photofacial can help to rejuvenate various areas of the body. Due to this treatment’s unique ability to change the structure of the skin cells, it can effectively prevent premature aging when performed regularly.
