While rosy cheeks are considered cute, constant redness is anything but. Those who struggle with rosacea know what we’re talking about. Redness can occur after a drink or spicy food – it can even flare up during an office meeting or a party! Hyperpigmentation is another, more permanent, and arguably more troubling issue. Redness comes and goes, but once you have age spots, they’re forever, right? If you deal with these problems regularly, you’re likely close friends with the makeup aisle. The good news is that you no longer have to be. The IPL PhotoFacial was created for this very reason, and luckily for you, it’s available right here at BodyLase® Med Spa.

These treatments make short work of any redness and hyperpigmentation you’re struggling with. Read on if you’re new to the aesthetics scene and find out if IPL PhotoFacials are right for you.

What Is an IPL PhotoFacial?

IPL stands for “intense pulsed light.” The technology works by emitting multiple lights into targeted areas of your skin. This process gets rid of redness and unwanted pigmentation while promoting collagen production. Now, when you imagine a laser beam, you might picture something puncturing your skin. However, IPL treatments are completely non-invasive!

Best of all, since IPL promotes collagen production, you can expect improvements in your skin well after your session is complete. Natural is always better in our book, so a device that causes natural skin rejuvenation over time is a no-brainer.

Does the IPL PhotoFacial Take a Toll on Your Skin?

Simply put, no! The amazing thing about an IPL PhotoFacial treatment is that downtime is minimal. Unlike many other laser procedures, the beams emitted by this system are surprisingly gentle. They are absorbed only by unwanted brown and red pigment, allowing for precise treatments anywhere on the body.

While avoiding sunlight is recommended after your treatment, doing so doesn’t mean you have to stay bedridden. You’re free to go about your day right after your session so long as you take the proper precautions to protect your skin from the sun. This means applying sunblock and wearing protective clothing.

How Long Do Results Take?

Beyond post-treatment downtime, the actual results of the treatment may be the first thing on your mind when you visit our office. What makes IPL PhotoFacials unique is that they deliver both immediate and long-term results. In the short term, you can notice a rejuvenation effect after your visit. In the long term, your skin will improve gradually due to the collagen production induced by this device. 

The results take effect slowly and get better over the course of about two weeks. These improvements can be seen in the form of a clearer complexion with reduced age spots and a noticeable reduction in redness. With the right number of treatments, you can see a great improvement in skin renewal from IPL PhotoFacials.
