Facial Rejuvenation and IPL Treatment
Facial rejuvenation treatments are effective ways to fix many problems and flaws on the face. With the power of IPL treatment (Intense Pulsed Light), we use an innovative way to renew the skin.
It is made to use the newest and most effective skincare technology to give your skin a photorejuvenation process. This laser treatment doesn’t hurt and doesn’t cut into the skin, and it has been approved by the FDA to make the skin look younger. IPL is effective at treating many skin problems, such as:
- Acne scars
- Sun damage
- Unwanted hair
IPL Treatment: How It Works
IPL targets a specific color on your skin by using light energy. When you heat your skin, your body removes the cells it doesn’t need. This part gets rid of the problem you’re being treated for. An IPL device, unlike a laser, sends out light with more than one wavelength. It can treat several skin problems at once.
You may look younger if your skin tone is more even after IPL. Since the light doesn’t hurt other body parts, you can heal quickly. A dermatologist who is certified by a board should give it to you safely.
At SeaMist MedSpa, we offer the best treatments for skin rejuvenation to make your skin look and feel its best. Treatments for skin rejuvenation are essential to keep your skin looking and feeling its best.
Who Should Get Treatment with an IPL?
It works best if your skin is light or pale brown. Talk to your dermatologist if you want to get rid of or reduce acne, scars, burns, dark spots, wrinkles, and more.
Risks, safety, and effects
Most people are safe with IPL, but it’s not for everyone. People who are taking blood thinners or are pregnant should not get IPL. Other reasons why someone might not be a good candidate for IPL treatment are:
- taking or have recently taken the acne drug Accutane
- have active acne
- have a skin resurfacing disorder and are likely to get keloid scars.
- Having severe scars from getting burned recently
As with any medical procedure, there is a chance that something could go wrong with IPL. These things are:
- Pain skin discoloration
How well does it work?
How well IPL works depends on a lot of things. It works better on skin that is white or light brown than on skin that is darker. Another factor is the equipment a doctor or nurse uses during the procedure. IPL works differently for each person, and most people need more than one session before they start to see results.
If you want IPL treatment, you should talk to a dermatologist about the possible benefits, side effects, and problems. A dermatologist will usually tell people to avoid the following for two weeks before the procedure:
- Sunbathing and tanning beds
- Waxing Chemical peels Injections of collagen
People should also avoid putting perfume or deodorant on the treatment area before and after therapy.
What sets IPL apart from laser treatment
IPL works like a laser treatment. But a laser only sends one wavelength of light to your skin, while IPL, like a camera flash, sends out many different wavelengths of light.
IPL light is less focused and spread out than laser light. IPL gets to the second layer of your skin (the dermis) without hurting the top layer (the epidermis), so it hurts your skin less.
The light energy is turned into heat by the pigment cells in your skin. Freckles and other spots go away because the heat kills the extra pigment. Or it destroys the hair follicle so that hair won’t grow back.
IPL can be used anywhere on your body, but it might not work well in places where the skin isn’t smooth. It’s not suitable for people with thick, raised scars called keloids or darker skin. It also doesn’t work as well on light hair as on dark hair.
IPL might not be the best choice for everyone. Some people find it too painful, and others don’t like how long it takes to get better. So here are other options you can try:
This treatment is a type of laser treatment that slows down the aging process. It doesn’t hurt, and most people only need one session, unlike IPL, which requires multiple sessions.
Fraxel treatments can be done on the face, neck, shoulders, and chest. But because it uses a laser, it has the same possible side effects as IPL.
People who want to make their skin look younger also have the option of microdermabrasion. It removes the dead skin on the skin’s surface, revealing the fresher skin underneath.
The effects of microdermabrasion don’t last as long as those of IPL or Fraxel. Compared to IPL, microdermabrasion could be:
- Have fewer possible side effects and take less time to heal
- Waxing or shaving are common ways to get rid of hair besides IPL treatment.
Even though the effects of these older methods don’t last as long, they tend to hurt less, have fewer risks, and require little or no recovery time. In general, IPL is primarily safe but can cause problems like pain, swelling, and bleeding. IPL treatment shouldn’t be done on women who are pregnant.
