All of this beautiful summer sun we’ve enjoyed is great for the psyche, but less appreciated by the skin, wheresun damage and premature aging can rear their ugly heads. We recommend an IPL photofacial at this time of year because it is the perfect rejuvenation treatment for reversing that sun damage and helping you move into the holiday season with clearer, brighter skin. Signs of damaged skin might include freckles, fine lines, and spider veins that often appear after regular sun exposure.
What is an IPL Photofacial?
IPL is a non-invasive method of skin rejuvenation that uses a variety of light wavelengths to address a myriad of specific skin concerns, such as:
- sun damage
- abnormal pigmentation of the skin
- redness of the skin
- broken capillaries
The procedure involves little discomfort and no downtime, making it easy to fit your IPL photofacial sessions into your daily schedule.
The Ideal Treatment Time
The best results of an IPL photofacial tend to occur when the skin is not exposed to a lot of direct sunlight. During the fall months you may find it easier to stay out of the sun days prior to and following your treatment, which can greatly enhance your results. Fall is also a good time to address signs of sun damage that occurred over the summer months, restoring your skin to a state of optimal health prior to the holiday season.
Who are the Best IPL Candidates?
Both men and women who have had a lot of sun exposure are the best candidates for this treatment. IPL requires no downtime and has minimal side effects. These gentle, non-ablative in-office treatments use broad spectrum light to treat the face, chest, neck and hands—virtually anywhere that sun damage shows. Some patients may also find IPL photofacials help them to manage their symptoms of rosacea more effectively.
An IPL photofacial is an excellent option for getting your skin ready for the upcoming cooler weather. By starting your treatments now, you can see significant improvement to your skin before the holiday season officially launches.
