Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) Treatments for Anti-Aging

Getting older can take quite the toll on your complexion. All we want is to look and feel young again without going through the process of Botox or applying 7 different anti-aging creams everyday. Keeping your skin healthy and fresh can sometimes be posed as a challenge. Although aging (and the spots that come with it) is inevitable, there is a treatment that has drastic anti-aging benefits called Intense Pulsed Light or more simply known as IPL treatment. This treatment, as opposed to other anti-aging products, has long lasting results that actually decrease the age of your skin.

What is IPL?

IPL is a light-based treatment that is mainly used to erase discoloration on the skin. This can be anything from freckles, sun damage, brown spots, and even acne. The way it works is by a Photofacial laser that produces a beam of light that basically zaps away any of these issues. The light beam is then absorbed into the deeper layers of your skin stimulating new collagen, which is a natural protein that fills in lines and improves skin texture, to grow. As the new collagen forms, all skin imperfections fade away. With each treatment (five spaced out between three weeks being the recommended amount) results become more and more evident.

Benefit #1: Enhances Skin’s Vibrance

Essentially all aspects of skin aesthetics and structure are benefitted from an IPL treatment. After as little as 3 to 5 treatments, without any downtime out of your busy life, your skin will be more vibrant and clear. IPL rejuvenates your skin by removing broken capillaries and redness of the face, neck and chest. These areas are the most common, but other popular areas include back of the hands, arms, legs, and even back. This treatment instantly removes unwanted redness and blemishes.

Benefit #2: Clears Sun-Damaged Skin

In addition, it treats any sun-damaged skin that has been flawed. All of the brown spots that appear from the sun will be removed and replaced with a new fresh layer of skin. Your skin will tighten while new collagen is growing to improve skin tone resulting in a more youthful complexion and diminishing the sun spots.

Benefit #3: Clears Rosacea

Another benefit is that it treats rosacea, a skin disorder that deals with the blood vessels becoming more prominent and visible causing an acne-like redness on the skin. Although there has not been a cure found for rosacea, IPL has been known to treat the side effects of this disorder very well and renew the way your skin looks.

While there are many ways to rejuvenate your skin for a more youthful look, IPL is taking it one step deeper (literally).
