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, serving Greenville, Spartanburg, Anderson, Simpsonville, and Boiling Springs. 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. Clients 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.
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.
Clients who choose this skin rejuvenation treatment can achieve:
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.*
You may be a good candidate for this procedure if you have cosmetic concerns such as:
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.
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 clients to client. 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.
If you are self-conscious about the appearance of your skin and reluctant to go out in public without makeup, we can help you improve your skin’s appearance and self-confidence. To learn more about this treatment, contact our staff online or by calling (864) 372-3003 to schedule your consultation.
