How to Maximize Your IPL Photofacial Results

The IPL Photofacial is a uniquely flexible approach to treating skin issues.  Using the wondrous power of light, this therapy addresses issues as diverse as dark spots, sun damage, uneven pigmentation and redness.

IPL uses a broad-spectrum source of light which penetrates the top layers of skin, while having no impact on the epidermis (top layer).   Heat generated by the light used in an IPL Photofacial treats multiple issues beneath the skin.

A do-it-all treatment

Before we go any further with our exploration of how to maximize your IPL Photofacial results, it’s important to note that pale skin is best suited to this therapy.  Those of you who are normally pale, but tan should stay out of the sun for a period recommended by your technician before having the therapy.

Also, if you suffer from conditions like rosacea or severe acne, the IPL Photofacial won’t render the desired results.  The same is true of deep wrinkling and scarring.

An IPL Photofacial is best suited to address fine lines and wrinkles, spider veins, uneven skin tone due to sun exposure or aging, broken capillaries, redness, shallow acne scars and enlarged pores.  This treatment really does cover a lot of ground despite its limitations for more serious skin problems.

Maximizing results

Most of our guests at [primary_practice] opt for 5 sessions, spaced 3 weeks apart.  Many people who call on this therapy, though, see results after only one session and those results are augmented over time.

How to maximize your IPL Photofacial results are these common-sense directions, which apply whether you have the treatment or not.

Limit sun exposure and wear a 30 SPF sunscreen.  The sun is a beautiful thing, but too much of a beautiful thing can damage your skin.  Remember to stay out of the sun between noon and 2 pm, when the sun is strongest.

Don’t smoke.  Need we say more?  OK.  A little more.

Smoking cigarettes is the enemy of radiant skin. It narrows small blood vessels in the face, impeding circulation, contributing to lines and wrinkles, but it also affects skin elasticity by reducing collagen and elastin production.

Finally, eat well and drink plenty of water.  Nutritious food feeds your skin.  Avoid foods high in salt and processed foods, which have the opposite effect.  Water, as we all know, is the source of life and its value to the quality of your skin can’t be underestimated.
