Your skin has taken a lot of damage over the years. From sun damage to acne scars, your complexion will start to show signs of what it has been through. With IPL facials, you can combat these imperfections and get a clear complexion again.
At Deja You Medical, our IPL treatments use powerful technology to rejuvenate your skin without damaging it. Here’s why you need an IPL treatment.
Intense Pulsed Light Therapy
IPL stands for “intense pulsed light.” Treatments with IPL are non-ablative, which means that they do not harm the surface tissues of your skin. IPL treatments penetrate deep layers of your skin to get rid of brown spots, acne scars, and lesions. These treatments are gentle but powerful against common skin concerns.
We use the Rohrer Spectrum 8 – IPL system to treat your complexion. This technology offers total skin rejuvenation without causing damage to healthy skin tissues. You can finally get rid of pesky blemishes and reminders of past acne with our IPL treatments.
Why Do You Need an IPL Facial?
You might be wondering whether your specific skin concerns can be addressed with IPL treatments. The answer is that they most likely can!
This treatment uses revolutionary skin technology to blast away imperfections while remaining gentle on your skin. Below are some of the common skin concerns that IPL facials address.
Breakouts and Acne Scars
If you struggle with acne, you know how frustrating it can be. Oily skin is most vulnerable to frequent, painful breakouts. Breakouts also lead to acne scars, which litter your complexion with reminders of your past acne struggles. IPL facials address both problems at the same time.
Intense pulsed light kills acne-causing bacteria that reside in your skin. This treatment also seals off oil glands to cut down on the amount of oil your skin produces. As a result, you experience fewer breakouts and less intense acne.
IPL therapy also reduces the appearance of acne scars by breaking up the scar tissue underneath your skin’s surface. You can look forward to reducing or eliminating scarring and blemishes if you get IPL treatments.
Unwanted Facial Hair
Some patients grow unwanted facial hair that is inconvenient to deal with. If you find yourself trying many different hair removal methods only for this unwanted hair to come back, try IPL treatments.
The intense pulsed light emitted by the device lightens facial hair pigment and destroys hair follicles. This prevents future hair growth and reduces the appearance of unwanted facial hair. If you have a light to medium skin tone with dark, unwanted hair, IPL treatments will help.
Spider veins are dark visible veins that get in the way of a perfect complexion. If you want to reduce the appearance of your spider veins, IPL facials can treat them.
This therapy collapses the blood vessels that cause spider veins to appear. Intense pulsed light spider vein treatments are effective at getting rid of the problem for good.
The sun significantly ages your skin, causing wrinkles, dark spots, and dryness. IPL facials lighten sun spots so you can get a clearer complexion. The light pulses destroy pigment cells under your skin to get rid of dark spots caused by chronic sun exposure. This results in a more youthful-looking complexion with less unwanted pigment.
Lesions are caused by the abnormal growth of skin cells on the surface of your skin. There are different types of lesions, but many of them are harmless to your health. If you have benign (non-cancerous) skin lesions you want to get rid of, IPL treatments will help.
This therapy destroys unwanted pigment and excess skin cells to smooth your complexion and get rid of unsightly lesions.
What to Expect
IPL facials have a wealth of benefits for your skin, but what can you actually expect when you come in for a session? Your comfort is our top priority. We make sure you feel relaxed and at ease in our office. Here is what you should expect from the IPL treatment process.
Preparing for Your Treatment
We want to make sure your skin gets the full benefits of IPL therapy. For this reason, we ask that you avoid tanning and excessive sun exposure for three weeks before your appointment. This will keep your skin healthy and ready for treatment.
You should avoid using skincare products with certain strong active ingredients like retinol or chemical exfoliators. These can make your skin more sensitive and interfere with IPL results.
IPL Facial Process
We offer numbing cream and cooling gel to keep your skin comfortable during your sessions. IPL treatments last between 15 and 30 minutes on average. There is no downtime required after we are finished.
You are free to leave and go about your day normally after an IPL facial. This convenience makes IPL facials popular among patients with busy schedules.
As long as you take good care of your skin afterward, your IPL therapy results will last for up to a year. We recommend using sun protection every day, especially in the areas of treatment. This will help prevent further skin aging and visible sun damage. For many patients, the targeted skin concerns go away for good after an IPL facial.
