Try An IPL Photorejuvenation Treatment To Reduce The Signs Of Aging

Many people are always in the search of the newest ways to achieve glowing, youthful skin. With new technology and trending skincare fads, devices, and treatments, it can be overwhelming trying to decide what actually works and what will give you the results you desire. Photofacials, also sometimes referred to as IPL photorejuvenation, are among the most popular options for non-invasive, anti-wrinkle, anti-aging treatments. IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) is commonly used to treat sun-damaged skin, wrinkles, and age spots. If you want to stop the clock on aging skin, IPL photorejuvenation may be the exact solution you are looking for.

How Does IPL Photorejuvenation Work?

IPL systems work similarly to laser treatments in that light energy is absorbed into particular target cells with colour in the skin. The light energy is then converted into heat energy, causing damage to the skin cells in that particular area. The heated and damaged skin cells are then removed by the body naturally and are replaced by healthy, new cells.  Unlike laser treatments, IPL sends out multiple wavelengths of light, therefore, giving it the ability to treat multiple skin conditions at once. The light energy only affects the dermis layer of the skin, unlike other laser treatments that affect both the dermis and epidermis layers. This means that there is significantly less downtime associated with IPL treatments since your outer skin layer (the epidermis) is not affected. 

Benefits Of IPL Photorejuvenation Treatments

Say Goodbye To Sun Damaged Skin

When it comes to aging, the sun can be your skin's worst nightmare. Most of the changes you see in your skin are often the result of harmful UV rays from the sun causing your skin to lose elasticity, develop sun spots, and give the appearance of a weathered look. IPL photofacials draw out discoloured cells that have formed deep in the dermis. By dissolving these cells and allowing your body to replace them with healthy new ones, you are restored with an even, dewy complexion. 

Wrinkles? Never Heard Of Them

One of the most frustrating things about getting older is developing fine lines and wrinkles. Although it is inevitable, you can still take measures to delay the effects of aging skin. IPL therapy targets the dermis layer of your skin to destroy targeted cells. Once these cells are absorbed by your body, your body then begins to generate new collagen which replaces collagen stores that have been destroyed by the sun. As a result of the healing process, your skin will become stronger and more supple. 

Get Rid Of That Stubborn Acne

Some people are blessed with amazing genetics that leaves them with glowing, pimple-free skin. For others, acne seems to never go away causing self-esteem issues. Luckily, you do not have to be blessed with genetics to get rid of your acne. IPL treatments tackle the causes of acne and its lasting side effects like scarring. IPL photofacials encourage the skin to shed and renew its outer layer, a process that gradually eliminates scar tissue while killing harmful bacteria and reducing redness and inflammation.
