IPL Rejuvenation Can Address Sun Damage and Uneven Skin
Over time, your skin can begin to show the effects of age, making clear and blemish-free skin difficult to achieve with even the most diligent skincare regimen. Other prominent factors, such as the environment, stress, heredity, and lifestyle habits can also cause skin imperfections. At Back to 30™, you can undo sun damage and restore a youthful look with IPL photorejuvenation during convenient appointments at our offices in Upstate South Carolina. This skin treatment, also known as a photofacial, uses intense pulsed light (IPL) technology to address age spots, wrinkles, and a variety of other skin conditions. Patients who undergo this treatment are able to achieve a refreshed and rejuvenated complexion.*
IPL light waves are able to penetrate melanin to break up discoloration deep within the skin’s surface without damaging the outer layer.
What is IPL Photorejuvenation?
IPL photorejuvenation is a type of laser treatment that uses computer-controlled light therapy to treat the underlying layers of the skin. As the device is placed over the treatment area, it will emit broad-spectrum light waves to target melanin, while also stimulating collagen production. IPL light waves are able to penetrate melanin to break up discoloration deep within the skin’s surface without damaging the outer layer.
Patients who choose this skin rejuvenation treatment can achieve:
- Reduced appearance of sun spots, freckles, and other pigmentation issues
- Reduced fine lines and wrinkles
- Smaller, less visible pores
- Smoother, more balanced skin tone and texture
- More youthful and radiant complexion
This treatment can be performed on many areas of the body and requires little to no downtime. Because of its ability to promote collagen regeneration, it can provide long-lasting results. Collagen is key to helping your skin maintain its elasticity and optimum structure in order to prevent skin from wrinkling or sagging.*
Conditions IPL Photorejuvenation Can Treat
You may be a good candidate for this procedure if you have cosmetic concerns such as:
- Sun damage
- Age spots
- Uneven skin textures
- Melasma (skin discoloration)
- Larger pores
- Fines lines and wrinkles
- Broken capillaries or spider veins
- Stretch marks
During a consultation, a member of our team can examine your skin to determine if IPL procedures or another skin rejuvenation technique may be best to achieve your goals.
The IPL Photofacial Treatment
During the treatment, one of our team members will cleanse and prepare your face for optimal comfort and results. Once the skin is adequately prepared, you will be given protective eyewear and the IPL device will be placed over the targeted area. IPL computer-controlled technology allows us to adjust the level of light waves administered to benefit your skin’s texture and tone so the imperfections are successfully treated.
Depending on the size and number of areas being treated, treatment can generally be completed in about 30 minutes. To maximize your results, we recommend multiple treatments, spaced out over a period of weeks. The number of treatments required varies from patient to patient. Your specialist will review the details with you during your initial consultation. Immediately after treatment, you can return to normal activity, but should wear a quality sunscreen with high SPF to protect your skin and prevent further damage.
