Drugstore acne treatments and anti-aging topical lotions can only do so much for your skin. The problem is that most of these solutions are only meant to treat the surface of your skin; Few dive deeper into the second layer of skin. You might take a chance, considering the accessibility and affordability of these products. Still, the continued purchase of treatments that don’t work will rack up in your bank account, leaving you disappointed. The good news is that there’s a better solution, and that solution is called Intense Pulse Light Laser Treatment.
You might think laser treatment can only be used for hair removal processes, but there’s so much more to IPL. IPL works to rejuvenate your skin. Pulsed light allows us to reach into the dermis layer and send light waves underneath the surface of the epidermis. The heated light removes imperfections at their root, all with minimal evasiveness.
This laser treatment can aid multiple skin conditions, from sunspots to red blotches caused by ruptured blood vessels. IPL also helps with rosacea, age spots, acne, and, as mentioned, facial hair removal. Because IPL treats some intense skin problems, patients may experience side effects such as redness and swelling. Still, they should only last a few days. During treatment, some epidemiologists use contact cooling systems to reduce pain.
At Fairlawn Aesthetic MD, our Intense Pulse Light process can be completed in just a few sessions. If you’re considering IPL but you have some questions that need to be answered first, you can always visit us at one of our locations in Ontario or Fairlawn, Ohio, or get in touch with us here.
