At the end of the summer, most of us are ready to get back into a good skin care regimen to make up for some accidental sun damage over the summer. You may have noticed a few extra freckles, sun spots, or brown spots on your face. There may be areas of uneven pigmentation or broken capillaries. These areas can be visible on the face, but also other areas of the body that receive a lot of sun, like the décolleté or the backs of the hands.
IPL, or intense pulsed light, is a light-based therapy used for skin rejuvenation. A treatment is also known as photorejuvenation or photofacial. IPL can treat freckles, brown spots, sun spots, broken capillaries, spider veins, and rosacea. It stimulates collagen and elastin remodeling in the skin, giving it a better and smoother texture.
IPL treatments are used on both men and women. A series of five treatments is necessary to give the desired result. IPL is best combined with a good skin care regimen which includes a high SPF sunblock. It can be used in conjunction with chemical peels for a greater and longer lasting effect.
Healthy skin is obtainable with the right skin care and expert advice. To learn more about IPL and skin rejuvenation, schedule a consultation at Jandali Plastic Surgery today.
