IPL Photorejuvination can help you say goodbye to sun damage, rosacea, acne scaring, hyperpigmentation, wrinkles, and other skin imperfections. The Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) procedure is gentle on skin and gets you to a radiant complexion easier that ever. Dr. McDaniel and the team here at Fairlawn Aesthetics want to help you understand the benefits of photorejuvination.
First it’s important to understand what IPL Photorejuvination is. The procedure uses intense pulses of direct light to penetrate into the deep layers of the skin. The light constricts the blood vessels and releases collagen below the skin that will reduce the imperfections gradually in the weeks following treatment. A cool gel will be applied to your skin to not only cool your skin, but allow the handpiece to move smoothly across the skin.
The timeline of how long the procedure lasts depends on how large of an area the treatment is covering. You’ll be given protective glasses to protect your eyes from the bright flashes. Being that it is and very minimally invasive there is little discomfort and the redness disappears quickly. You’ll have very little pain during and during recovery, but if you are feeling any ice can be gently applied. You should also avoid the sun for at least two weeks. After the initial two weeks you will need to wear ample amounts of sun protection, and keep your skin moisturized and healthy. With proper care results can last for a year or more.
Unlike many other treatments, IPL procedures do not remove any layers of skin. This alone improves the success rate of removing imperfections. You may however need multiple treatments based of the size of treatment area, as well as the amount of imperfections. For example, if you are targeting redness, and wrinkles you will more than likely need more than one visit for optimal results. IPL Photorejuvination offers a budget friendly option to those concerned with the look of their skin.
