- Posted on: Jan 15 2019
If you feel like you’ve tried everything to help your skin recover from sun damage or acne, you likely are tired of spending money for no results. Though many products and treatments seem to tout their ability to erase scars and fight hyperpigmentation, the truth is that everyone’s skin is different. What works for some people may not work for you at all. If you’ve tried everything to rejuvenate your skin, then it’s time to learn about IPL photofacials. Keep reading to learn more about this amazing treatment.
What is IPL?
IPL stands for Intense Pulsed Light, and may also be called broadband light (BBL), photorejuvenation, or photofacial. Though it is similar to lasers, IPL is not technically a laser treatment. Instead, IPL machines are able to vary the wavelengths of light they use, so they can treat a whole group of issues that your skin may have (as opposed to laser treatments, which often can only target specific skin issues). For example, IPL can be used to treat scars, dark marks, rosacea, and can even help remove unwanted hair.
Who is a good candidate?
Those who suffer from the following are likely good candidates for IPL treatments.
- Spider Veins
- Rosacea (enlarged facial blood vessels)
- Sun Damage
- Pigment Imperfections
- Brown and Red Spots
How long will results last?
IPL treatments are not like other treatments where you have amazing results that slowly fade away after a few weeks or months. In fact, the best results from IPL treatments come after a few months. So, if you are looking for a quick pick-me-up for a party or other event, other treatments may be better suited for you.
One caveat about IPL treatments: they work best on certain skin tones, so if you have darker skin, IPL treatments may not be recommended for you. Best results are found with those who have lighter skin, but there are other options for patients with darker skin so please ask when you are making your consultation.
