Sifting through the world of laser skincare can be confusing, with new products continually coming to market, each promising to be better than the last. Luckily, we’ve done the research for you in order to bring you the most effective anti-aging and skin-rejuvenating technologies available, including the intense pulsed light (IPL) photofacial.
At Aesthetic Assets in Scottsdale, Arizona, our Registered Nurses, and Certified Laser Technicians have extensive training and experience in the field of aesthetics which allows us to sift through the clutter and find cutting edge tools that deliver the best results, helping you love the skin you’re in.
In this month’s blog, we want to highlight our IPL photofacial and give you five reasons why you should make this treatment a part of your skin care regimen.
1. Age spots be gone
When it comes to aging skin, discolorations in the form of sun damage development on highly visible areas, namely your face, neck, chest, and hands. These clusters of melanin are a dead giveaway of the passing years of exposure.
With our IPL photofacial, we can clear away age spots by directing light energy into their pigment, which heats up and breaks apart these areas of hyperpigmentation.
2. Calling all collagen
Our IPL photofacial not only breaks apart blemishes beneath the surface of your skin, but the light energy also stimulates fibroblasts, which call for more collagen production. Collagen is the primary protein responsible for the structural support of your skin. With age, your collagen fibers begin to break apart and your collagen production begins to slowly wind down.
By stimulating collagen synthesis, we can provide new structural support for your skin, firming your skin from below to smooth out fine lines and wrinkles.
3. Tackling facial veins and redness
If you’re developing tiny spider veins on your face or if you suffer from generalized redness usually associated with Rosacea, our IPL photofacial can target these. The light energy closes off and destroys the veins, leaving your skin brighter and less red tone. For facial veins and redness, we recommend a series of 5 treatments spaced about 2 weeks apart.
4. Little pain, all gain
The light energy emitted by our IPL device travels harmlessly through your epidermis to reach your dermis. Before your treatment, we apply a gel on your skin to keep you comfortable. During your treatment you may feel a snapping sensation, but any discomfort is usually short-lived. And afterward, you’re free to get on with your day without skipping a beat.
5. Long-lasting results
Once you finish your recommended series of IPL photofacial treatments, your results will gradually settle in and remain in place until exposure and age catch up with your skin again. Because we’re tapping your own resources to rebuild healthy skin, your results are long-lasting.
Of course, you need to do your part to maintain your refreshed skin by staying out of the sun and keeping your tissue moisturized and hydrated.
And when time begins to make its mark again, you simply return for a follow-up treatment.
