IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) treatments are a popular skincare option for numerous people. They are done at med spas and doctors offices instead of salons. This treatment is versatile and effective at treating a plethora of skin issues.
Some of the things IPL photofacials have been shown to be valuable for treating include:
- Stretch marks
- Sun damage
- Age spots
- Brown spots/uneven pigmentation
If you have one or more of these skin issues that you’d like to reduce or even eliminate, IPL photofacial treatments may be for you. They are safe and effective. When you choose to go to a trained professional for treatment, you will get great results.
Besides versatility, here are 9 more reasons you should consider IPL treatments:
1. IPL Can Be Used On More Than Your Face
Often, people see such great results from facials that they want to use IPL treatments on other areas of the body to help their skin even more. IPL devices are able to be used on the neck, shoulders, and chest as well.
2. IPL Can Help With Repairing Small Blood Vessels
Small blood vessels close to the surface of the skin may cause blemishes and discoloration. IPL treatments can reduce or eliminate the look of those blood vessels and help give your skin a beautiful clear appearance.
3. IPL Can Help Acne-Prone Skin
IPL treatments help those who suffer from acne in three ways:
- 1. Reducing enlarged pores
- 2. Reducing redness
- 3. Reducing inflammation
This can help your skin become healthier and clearer. You can also avoid needing products that really dry it out.
4. IPL Can Improve Redness In Skin
There are certain conditions, such as rosacea, that give the skin a reddened appearance. If you have skin redness caused by rosacea or another condition, IPL treatments can help to restore a more neutral complexion and eliminate the red.
5. IPL Treatment Can Minimize Signs Of Aging
Skin changes as we age. IPL can reduce wrinkles and sunspots by stimulating the skin’s deeper layers to produce more collagen. This will make skin healthier and rejuvenate it from the inside out.
6. Treatment Can Be Cost Effective
Compared to other treatments like lasers, IPL may be a more affordable,accessible option for skin care.
7. Pair IPL With Other Treatments
You can do IPL with other treatments, like microdermabrasion and chemical peels, with no problems since they target different layers of the skin.
8. Save Time with IPL
For those on a time crunch, IPL treatments takes no more than 30 minutes and requires no downtime, unlike other options.
9. IPL Can Be Comfortable
Some patients feel slight sensation during treatment, but most feel no pain.
