What is IPL facial rejuvenation?
Sometimes known as photodynamic therapy, the IPL facial rejuvenation treatment creates controlled wounds on the skin, stimulating the creation of new cells during the healing process. The treatment can also be used on other areas of the body.
How IPL facial rejuvenation works
First your skin will be cleaned by your skincare specialist before a cool gel is rubbed into the skin. The IPL device is then used to apply pulses of light into the skin. You will wear dark glasses for eye protection. The treatments usually take from 20 to 30 minutes and require three to six treatments spaced around a month apart.
Who can benefit from IPL facial rejuvenation?
You could be a suitable candidate for IPL facial rejuvenation if you have; acne; hyperpigmented areas such as sunspots and freckles; uneven colouring; skin redness; or melasma which will not go away. In a consultation, the correct light frequency range for your skin will be determined, according to the thickness and tone of your skin.
IPL facial rejuvenation may not be suitable for you if; you have experienced sunburn recently; you are pregnant; you have any active infections; you suffer from eczema or severe dermatitis; you have a history of seizures; you have very dark skin; or if you have herpes within the area of skin targeted for treatment.
What are the advantages of IPL facial rejuvenation?
IPL facial rejuvenation is valued for its ability to revitalise the skin in a number of ways. Not only can it reverse the signs of sun damage, but it is also recognised for its ability to reduce redness and pigmentation. It gets to work combatting brown spots and blotches.
The treatment is able to achieve the smoothing of the skin by stimulating the production of collagen, encouraging a more youthful appearance. IPL facial rejuvenation can improve the overall texture of the skin, keeping your skin looking smooth and even.
