Sun damage, aging, acne and other factors can impact the beauty of your skin. Freckles (sun spots), fine lines, large pores and discolorations can change the texture and tone of your skin, making it appear older and less attractive. You can revive your skin and bring back a youthful glow with an IPL Photo Facial at Arcadia Wellness Center. If you want to be photo-ready for your next close up, laser therapy may be just what you need to look your best.
What is IPL Photo Facial?
Intense pulsed light or IPL is used in a Photo Facial to improve the appearance and health of the skin. The controlled light energy is attracted to darker pigmented skin cells that cause imperfections like sun spots, redness, scarring and birthmarks. When focused on the areas you want treated, the light energy changes the darker pigmented cells. The heat energy destroys the darker pigmented cells, which flake away, revealing new, lighter skin cells. It can also impact small capillaries that cause spider veins and other vascular formations, fading away birthmarks and rosacea redness.
IPL Photo Facial can be used to help rejuvenate aging skin or to fade away scars or birthmarks. People of all ages can benefit from this non-invasive skin treatment; it is not painful and does not require any downtime. You may have slight flaking in the treatment areas as the pigmented cells are discarded for the new skin over the following two weeks but you can return to your regular activities immediately after your treatment.
Who Can Benefit from IPL?
If you have lighter skin with imperfections, IPL may offer a non-invasive option to rejuvenate your skin. While Photo Facials are often used for improving the youthfulness of facial skin, it can be used on other areas like the hands, chest or legs. IPL can treat and fade:
• Spider veins and broken capillaries
• Fine lines and wrinkles
• Sun spots, sun damage and freckles
• Acne and acne scarring
• Enlarged pores
