No editing, no retouching, that’s the magic of Photorejuvenation IPL treatment
It’s also known as Photorejuvenation or Photofacial. In our digital world, many life moments are captured with a photo. It may feel impossible to always be picture-perfect ready on a whim in this photo era. MedAndSpa offers you the Photorejuvenation IPL treatment in Burridge, IL so you’ll be glowing and ready for any snapshot. Light therapy treatments are revolutionary solutions designed to even out your skin tone with little to no downtime so you are always looking your best!
What is the Photorejuvenation IPL treatment?
Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) therapy is a revolutionary way to improve the color and texture of your skin as a noninvasive, no-downtime procedure to correct virtually any superficial dark spot. It is intended to reverse the visible damage caused by sun exposure and signs of aging. This also includes rosacea, sun damage, freckles, age spots, and acne scars. Photorejuvenation IPL uses a deeper and layered light that passes through the epidermis (skin), drawing out the pigment-producing cells and dispersing the uneven pigment resulting in an even, smooth, and natural skin tone. This rejuvenating treatment can be used on the face, neck, chest, shoulders, back arms, legs, and just about anywhere else. Photorejuvenation is also an effective treatment for broken veins and spider veins.
What does Photorejuvenation IPL treat?
By reaching a slightly deeper layer of the skin, Photorejuvenation IPL stimulates collagen growth which creates structure and rejuvenation of the cells for long-lasting results. The most noticeable improvement is shown on pale or light (Frederick I-III) skin. With multiple sessions of Photorejuvenation IPL treatment at MedAndSpa you can notice improvement of:
- Stretch marks
- Liver or brown age spots
- Broken blood vessels
- Dark spots from hormonal changes
- Discolored skin
- Redness from rosacea
- Color of scars
What is the effectiveness of Photorejuvenation IPL?
According to Stanford Medical University, the long-term effects of Photorejuvenation actually reverse the signs of aging. How well IPL works can depend on what you want the treatment to fix.
Redness Treatment: After one to three treatments, IPL can get rid of 50-75% of broken blood vessels for most, but they could also completely go away. While treated veins don’t come back, new ones might show up later.
If rosacea causes your face to flush, IPL can be a good therapy for you. You may have better results if:
- You’re under 40
- Your condition is moderate to severe
Sun Damage Treatment: You may see 70% less of the brown spots and redness caused by ultraviolet (UV) rays.
Acne Treatment: IPL may help if you have acne or the scarring it causes. You may need about six sessions depending on the severity.
How quickly can I see results after treatment?
Average number of sessions for ideal results is between three and seven sessions. It depends on the condition you’re treating with a 2-4 week wait between each visit. It may take several weeks for you to notice any changes in your skin. A great benefit of IPL is that results are long-term effective and you’ll be glowing with healthy skin and confidence!
How to prepare and what to expect during and after IPL treatment
Photorejuvenation IPL treatments are quick and relatively painless. The procedure itself takes around 30 minutes to an hour total and can easily fit into your busy day! Colder seasons where your skin is less exposed to sun is the best time of year to consider a Photorejuvenation IPL treatment at MedAndSpa. Before the procedure, we strongly advise to avoid tanning, waxing, chemical peels, and any deep exfoliating procedures.
During your IPL treatment session, one of MedAndSpa’s licensed estheticians will begin by gently rubbing gel on your clean skin. The handheld IPL device will go right on your treatment areas. It will feel like a subtle rubber band sting as the light waves treat your skin. The session will probably last about 30 minutes, whereas large areas could take an hour or more.
Afterward, slight swelling and maybe red for 24-48 hours are the most you’ll see as a side effect. The other great benefit of IPL treatments is that you can go right back to your regular schedule, as there is no downtime to follow. It may feel like you have sunburn for 4-6 hours. Also, it is normal for some brown spots to get darker, but they should peel off naturally within a quick time frame. All of these details and more will be discussed with you so that you feel comfortable and confident during your Photorejuvenation IPL treatment at MedAndSpa.
IPL can make your skin look better, but it can’t prevent future aging.
Continuous IPL treatments in combination with other treatments available at our medical spa office can transform your skin to look better than ever before. You can customize a unique treatment plan for you with our MedAndSpa skin experts.
