09 May What can the IPL Photofacial do for me?
Keep seeing the three letters “IPL” and don’t understand what it means?! Don’t worry the skin professionals here at BeWell MedSpa in Wilton Manors, Fort Lauderdale, Florida, are here to help and explain the INCREDIBLE benefits it has to offer!
First and foremost, IPL stands for Intense Pulse Light. It is a powerful light source that is used for skin rejuvenation.
It has the ability to penetrate the skin with minimal skin damage. Like the laser, it works by filtering various wavelengths of light to react with specific skin conditions, effectively stimulating skin regeneration in the epidermis as well as the dermis thru increased collagen and elastin fibre production by gently injuring the deep layers of the skin while sparing damage to its outer layers, inducing a natural wound healing mechanism.
This controlled injury imposed on the dermis and epidermis, is a major factor in what leads to younger, fresher, tighter skin.
You may be thinking well what can this amazing light do for MY skin?!
Just to name a few:
* tighten pores
* reduce the severity of acne
* reduce the appearance of or eliminate sun spots and freckles
* lessen hyperpigmentation
* treat skin flushing and skin redness
* reduce the appearance of scars (acne, chickenpox, etc.)
* reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
* reverse sun damage
* treat vascular lesions (broken capillaries, blood vessels, telangiectasia, rosacea)
* tighten skin
* boost collagen and elastin production
To get the very best results we recommend that our patients do 3-5 treatments. The number of treatments depend on what you are trying to accomplish with your skin. IPL is performed about 4 weeks apart. We say 4 weeks apart because skin cells turn over about every 30 days or so, therefore we want to give the skin enough time to recover and return to it’s normal state before we treat it again.
