Have you ever wanted to do something to rejuvenate your skin but didn’t want to deal with the downtime and potential side effects of invasive procedures? If so, you should take a serious look at IPL photorejuvenation. You may be pleasantly surprised to learn that you can achieve the results you want in ways that are less aggressive and discomforting than more traditional forms of therapy.
While IPL therapy involves the use of concentrated light pulses, they are less aggressive than lasers while still producing similar results. You may want to have a more detailed conversation with our skin care professional about the advantages associated with the method.
IPL photorejuvenation can help restore your skin to a more even tone if you are dealing with the presence of sun spots. These unwanted dark spots typically form as a result of overexposure to the sun and its harmful UV rays. When you are exposed to sunlight, your skin will produce extra melanin as a means of protection. Since melanin is the substance that produces pigment, your skin will become tan after spending time in the sun. While this is usually seen as a desirable effect, the melanin can eventually begin to concentrate in small patches that will not fade over time.
The light pulses from IPL therapy will help to disperse this concentrated melanin. In response, the dark spots will dry up and flake off during the next few days following treatment. You will then be left with a more even skin tone that will shave years from your appearance.
You might also want to consider IPL photorejuvenation if you are disappointed with the presence of fine lines and wrinkles on your face. These things form when a reduction in the amount of collagen in the lower layers of the skin decreases. This happens because one of the natural effects of aging is a drop in collagen production. This is a protein that helps keep the skin tight and full. When the body produces less of it, the skin will start to become loose. As a result, there could be some sagging that develops along with wrinkle formation.
When used to tighten the skin, IPL photorejuvenation will encourage the skin to start growing collagen at a faster rate than it would without the therapy. This benefits your appearance in that the substance will return to a level that is closer to what it was in your younger years. The skin will return to a higher level of tightness accordingly.
