Improving the Signs of Photoaging in Your Skin
The pleasures and stresses of life take their toll and cause our skin to look older. Sun exposure, the major culprit of skin damage, only compounds this. The actual conditions that develop are often a complex of changes in the small blood vessels (called “telangiectasias”) and the appearance of spots and blemishes of pigment. A remarkable technology called Intense Pulsed Light (IPL™) can treat these developments with a very special flash of light.
Understanding Natural Skin Changes
As we age, our skin experiences various natural and environmental changes that are associated with the following: Redness, including the symptoms of rosacea, flushing, and broken blood vessels; pigment changes and skin discoloration, such as freckles and age spots; all of which can occur on the face, neck, chest, hands and arms.
IPL is a broad-band light (not a laser) used to deliver a series of gentle pulses of light to the skin. Specific settings are selected for each treatment for optimal results. A series of three to five treatments are performed at three to four week intervals. The benefits of IPL PhotoFacial Treatments are consistent, visible improvement in the skin with no downtime, little discomfort and minimal risk. With PhotoFacial Treatments, the embarrassing redness and flushing of rosacea can be greatly reduced and sun damaged, aging skin can be dramatically improved.
