IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) therapy is used to correct wrinkles, sun damage, age spots and stretch marks. IPL is also known as photorejuvenation or photofacial. Treatments are administered at med spas and doctor’s clinics and can be used to get rid of brown spots, mild sun damage, irregular pigmentation and freckles.
IPL treatments can also be used for hair reduction, but several treatments may be required. Various treatments are needed but the benefits are worth it as long as they are administered by a licensed and experienced skin care specialist. Look for IPL treatment in the Gold Coast at London Cosmetic Clinic for optimal results.
Here are eight reasons why you should consider getting an IPL Photofacial today and never look back.
Reason #1: No Pain
Some IPL patients report feeling a mild sensation during the procedure, while most patients have no pain at all during the IPL photofacial treatments. If you do experience a slight discomfort, applying a topical anaesthetic 60 minutes before the procedure can easily reduce this.
Reason #2: Can aid in fixing small blood vessels
If your sunspots, small blood vessels or other irregularities in pigmentation have become noticeable, IPL is a great solution to help clear the skin.
Reason #3: Helps control acne
If you have severe acne and have issues with inflammation and redness caused by acne, IPL treatments can really help. This treatment technique helps eliminate large pores and minimise the appearance of acne without the need to continually apply topical products that just dry out the skin.
Reason #4: Reduces skin redness
If you have rosacea or similar type of skin conditions that spread out redness into the skin, IPL photofacial therapy is an excellent treatment solution for minimising redness and creating an even, smooth and natural complexion.
Reason #5: Minimises signs of ageing
IPL is not marketed as an anti-ageing solution, however, the treatment does have long lasting effects in minimising some of the signs of ageing including; sun spots and wrinkles. IPL stimulates collagen growth and aids in improving the skin’s texture, minimising the look of wrinkles and fine lines.
Reason #6: Lower cost solution
Most skin treatments are expensive, but fortunately, IPL photofacial treatments usually cost less than laser treatments, and they also provide results that last a lot longer too.
Reason #7: Allows for additional treatment
IPL treatments focus on the deeper layers of the skin; thus they can safely be administered with other treatments that focus on the outmost layer of skin.
Reason #8: It’s quick and easy
Most facial treatments come with downtimes and are time-consuming, however, with IPL treatments, each photofacial procedure can take about 15 to 30 minutes to complete, so it can comfortably fit into your busy lifestyle. You can go back to whatever you were doing before your IPL treatment, as there is no downtime. No need to miss work or have to skip on picking the kids up after school.
