The face is one of the first ways that we make an impression. As a result, it’s extremely important that we put our best foot, or rather our best face, forward. While this may be an easy task when we are young, it is not always this way as we age. Due to the impact of the sun, our lifestyle, our genes, and many other factors, our face may show more wear and tear than we would like. The good news is that there are treatments available to help you continue to look and feel your best for the long-term. One of our favorites is the IPL Photofacial.
An IPL Photofacial uses intense pulsed light to treat skin damage, including wrinkles, stretch marks, age spots and more, on the face, neck, and chest. While there are countless reasons why you should trust your face to this procedure, here are our top five reasons to get an IPL Photofacial, today:
1. Get Your Acne In Check
For so many people, acne can cause redness and inflammation. Those with acne may also have large pores and may be frustrated with topical treatments designed to address skin imperfections. With an IPL Photofacial, you can kiss those frustrations and challenges goodbye. This procedure works to combat the redness and inflammation that can so seriously impact your self-confidence, while also eliminating large pores.
2. Minimize Aging
Skin concerns such as wrinkles, sunspots and more can make you appear far older than you would like. Fortunately, the IPL Photofacial reaches deep into the skin to prompt the body’s natural collagen production. This, in turn, is instrumental in enhancing skin tone, texture, and elasticity, so that you look just as young as you feel.
3. Enhance Multiple Areas
Far from being solely for the face, an IPL Photofacial is safe for use on a variety of other areas, including the neck, shoulders, and chest. Once you begin to see the amazing results in one area, you may not be able to resist adding in a few more locations for a more comprehensive improvement.
4. Combine Treatments
Many of our patients are interested in looking their absolute best. This often leads to a series of treatments to enhance and improve the outermost layer of the skin, including chemical peels, microdermabrasion and more. Instead of performing each treatment separately, an IPL Photofacial allows us to work in tandem with other procedures that help boost the appearance of the outer layers of the skin. As a result, you take less time overall to see even greater results.
5. Repair Small Blood Vessels
A common skin concern is the visibility of small red blood vessels. These may make themselves apparent at any time, and when they do, you may feel even more distracted and dismayed than you expected. Rest assured, the IPL Photofacial is excellent at painlessly clearing up the skin so that you can feel your very best.
