Tired of looking in the mirror and seeing dull skin, crinkles around your eyes, or lines on your forehead? Intense pulsed light (IPL) treatments can take care of those problems and many more. Nurse Practitioner Katie Venegoni, lead medical esthetician at Evolve Aesthetics in Portland, Oregon, loves helping her patients regain confidence with IPL photofacials.
Why get an IPL photofacial?
The skin on your face endures the most exposure to the sun’s harmful UV rays compared with the rest of your skin. UV rays cause photoaging, which contributes to premature signs of age, such as wrinkles and sunspots. IPL photofacial technology directly combats photoaging from harmful UV rays and can make you look decades younger with a few simple treatments.
Benefits of IPL photofacials
IPL photofacials help people with a number of complexion concerns, including:
- Moderate fine lines and wrinkles
- Dull, uneven skin tone
- Acne scarring
- Age spots, freckles, and other brown pigmentation
- Red pigmentation, spider veins, and rosacea
- Port-wine stains
- Melasma (dark, discolored patches)
- Hemangiomas (a bright red birthmark)
Do IPL photofacials make you look younger?
Yes, IPL photofacials can certainly help you achieve the youthful look you desire. IPL photofacials use anti-aging technology that sends targeted light energy to the deep layers of your skin to break up your blemishes and encourage collagen production in your skin. Your cells absorb this light energy as heat, which effectively gets rid of imperfections like veins and hyperpigmentation. Together, these functions result in an overall brighter, more youthful appearance in treatment areas
What to expect with an IPL photofacial
Most people see optimal results with 3-5 IPL treatments. To get your desired results, we spread treatments out by several weeks so your skin has time to respond to treatment. Because IPL photofacials are noninvasive, you won’t need any downtime afterward, though you may experience some mild redness and swelling.
Results from IPL facials build gradually as you progress through your treatment and your skin naturally removes damaged cells and ups its production of collagen. Most people notice their final and desired results approximately 6-12 weeks after their last session.
