IPL, or Intense Pulsed Light, treatment is a light-based technique used for dealing with a number of skin problems, such as sun damage, brown spots, wrinkles, freckles, acne, rosacea, fine lines, unwanted hair, and broken capillaries. The advanced IPL systems available today are quite versatile and can treat a variety of different skin conditions.
When you choose a qualified and experienced skin care specialist to perform the IPL photofacial treatment, it can help improve almost all issues related to your skin structure and skin aesthetics. Below, you’ll find some of the key benefits of the IPL treatment.
IPL is an all-inclusive procedure – a single IPL treatment in San Francisco can target almost all kinds of skin problems, including pigmentation, wrinkles, fine lines, rosacea, and sun damage. It helps in repairing tiny visible blood vessels and eliminating pigmentation irregularities and sun spots.
Even though there are other treatments and therapies that can also offer similar benefits, there is one thing that gives the IPL treatment an edge over them: specificity. The treatment is capable of handling all underlying skin structures, one by one, if required.
A key benefit of the IPL photorejuvenation treatment is that it can be performed in conjunction with other facial skin procedures, such as chemical peels and microdermabrasion. These treatments target the outermost skin layer, i.e. the epidermis. IPL photofacials, on the other hand, reach the deeper skin layers.
In the IPL treatment, the device releases a broad-light wavelength laser in short and rhythmic intervals. These light waves reach the deepest layers of your skin and eliminate the extra melanin accumulated in it.
The IPL treatment usually involves five distinct treatments and is dependent on the amount of skin damage being treated. The majority of the patients report that they are able to see improvements almost instantly after the initial session.
The IPL photofacial treatment treats the deeper skin layers, simulating trivial dermal injuries to help boost collagen production. This enhances the texture and overall health of the skin.
A lot of dermatologists and skin specialists choose the IPL photofacial treatment when handling pigmentation. Why? It’s because IPL can target the melanin present in your skin.
Skin specialists reveal that prolonged sun exposure causes an increase in melanin and also results in freckles. But just a couple of IPL sessions can help make a significant improvement in the appearance of dark spots. The IPL treatment has the advantage of covering a large skin area and involves very little downtime.
All those looking for a non-invasive, quick, and effective method to restore damaged skin should consider the Intense Pulsed Light treatment. This unique skin treatment not only restores your skin to its original youthful texture and tightness, it also ensures that you do not have to invest a lot of time in recovery and healing.
