HOW DOES AN IPL FACIAL WORK?
A photo facial rejuvenates the skin using intense pulsed light (IPL), also known as broadband light (BBL). By harnessing light energy, a photo facial rejuvenates the skin in numerous ways.
Photorejuvenation: This facial improves the signs of aging by reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. During treatment, the IPL laser penetrates the deep layers of skin tissue. Thermal energy from the IPL heats the tissue, stimulating a natural rejuvenation process. In response, the body produces more collagen. A vital structural protein found in the skin, collagen improves a wide range of skin blemishes and makes the skin stronger, healthier, and more youthful-looking.
Hyperpigmentation:IPL therapy can reduce brown spots and improve redness. Brown spots are typically caused by UV exposure. To protect your skin from the sun, the body creates melanin, the dark pigment found in the skin and the hair. During treatment, the dark pigment absorbs the IPL’s thermal energy. This breaks up the melanin into smaller bits that can be absorbed by the body.
Vascular irregularities typically cause redness. Following the same principle as the melanin, a photo facial targets the hemoglobin in veins and capillaries. Thermal energy heats the vein, causing it to collapse and gradually fade from view.2
Active acne: IPL photo facials improve active acne in two ways. Thermal energy constricts the glands that produce sebum, the skin’s natural oil that can cause breakouts. In addition, the IPL laser destroys the acne-causing bacteria that builds upon the skin’s surface.3
Light-based skin therapies can treat several common skin issues. Popular treatment applications target:1
- Redness (flushing)
- Vascular lesions
- Dilated blood vessels (broken capillaries)
- Brown spots or age spots
- Fine lines or wrinkles
- Enlarged pores
- Sun damage
- Dull skin tone
- Uneven skin tone
- Irregular skin texture
IPL treatments are highly customizable. Therefore, photofacial cost varies per patient. During your complimentary consultation with Cellular Intelligence Medspa, photofacial prices are discussed in detail. If this light-based therapy is right for you, we will customize a treatment protocol that is tailored to your skin, your aesthetic goals, and your budget.
Results may be seen after a single facial. However, most patients choose to undergo a series of 3 to 5 treatments to achieve the desired results. Certain skin conditions require more treatments than other skin conditions. During your consultation, your skin care professional will discuss how many treatments may be necessary to achieve superior outcomes.
Soon after your facial, your complexion should appear more radiant. Clinical results, such as the reduction of brown spots, fine lines, and improvement to skin tone and texture take several weeks to manifest as the skin goes through the process of natural rejuvenation. The timetable of your results depends on the specific skin condition being targeted. During your free consultation with CI Medspa, your skin care specialist will discuss your concerns and give you a detailed break down of how many facials your aesthetic goals require, and when you can expect to see your results. As with all facial treatments, individual experiences may vary. *
