How Does the IPL Photofacial Work?
Acne scarring, vascular lesions, age spots, skin imperfections seem to run rampant after we reach a certain age. In particular, passing the age of 30 causes our bodies to produce less of the proteins that our skin needs to sustain itself. In most cases, opting for preventative treatment is a much better choice than addressing these problems after the fact. Here at AlDa Aesthetics, we’re committed to giving you the best in skincare to ensure that you remain healthy and beautiful for many years to come. Our IPL Photofacial treatments are done using The Quanta Evo Light™, which uses concentrated beams of intense pulsed light to give you impressive skin-beautifying results.
What Can You Expect from IPL Photofacial Treatments?
Our IPL, or intense pulsed light, device uses one or multiple laser functions to refresh and restore your skin. The IPL Photofacial treatment takes no more than an hour to perform. In the course of the session, a laser handpiece will be dragged across your skin. The system will use light pulses that are designed to give you effective results without damaging areas surrounding the target regions. That being said, you may experience a snapping sensation as the device goes to work. In most cases, 3-5 sessions set about three weeks apart are needed for best results. We have ways to keep your skin cool while administering the procedure, minimizing any discomfort you may feel.
When Will You See Results?
After an IPL Photofacial session, experiencing some redness and soreness is common. The good news is that these side effects typically diminish after about 24 hours. It is important to be kind to your skin after intense pulsed light treatment. You should avoid sunlight and heat for about two days, and avoid direct sun exposure for at least 7-10 days. Over the next two weeks, you may notice a reduction in age spots, vascular lesions, and other skin concerns that were targeted during treatment. With the recommended number of treatments, you can see as much as a 75% or greater improvement in your skin color and texture!
Are You a Candidate for This Treatment?
IPL is an excellent method of improving skin tone and texture without downtime or invasive procedures. These treatments, along with the other service we provide here at AlDa Aesthetics, are administered with the highest level of care and attention. Most people are good candidates for this treatment, but getting a thorough evaluation before treatment is best to ensure that your needs are properly met. Here at our Hanover medspa, we’re happy to accommodate that.
