Here’s how you can delay ageing and get youthful skin with the IPL Photofacial
There is rarely a woman or any person for that matter, who does not covet flawless skin. Spotless, radiant, and youthful healthy skin is enough to make a statement. But with age, it gets harder to retain this natural beauty. Hence, we turn more towards a variety of skincare procedures and facials that promise to help slow ageing. But there are very few genuinely effective treatments. And one of them is the IPL Photofacial or Intense Pulsed Light treatment. If you’re confused about whether you should get it, this article is for you. We discuss all its benefits, uses, and how it works.
What is IPL treatment?
The Intense Pulsed Light treatment is a cosmetic skin facial performed using an intense pulsating light that penetrates deep within the skin layer. It can significantly reduce signs of ageing, discolouration, and reduced facial hair growth. It is similar to laser therapy but does not use laser light as it can deliver multiple wavelengths of light. There are multitudes of benefits from this treatment.
What are the benefits of IPL treatment?
The IPL Photofacial is used for a variety of purposes. The primary skincare benefit is reducing ageing and discolouration. It specifically targets melanin and reduces patchy skin texture. Apart from that, IPL also helps to significantly fade birthmarks and scars, and minimise rosacea, melasma, etc. It further helps to even the skin tone and reduce the appearance of spider veins as we age. It is equally effective against sun damage too.
How is IPL treatment done?
At ISAAC Luxe, the IPL Photofacial is done after applying an ice pack to the face for thirty minutes. Then the IPL treatment is done using light at a specific wavelength that helps to remove redness and inflammation significantly. The entire treatment takes 30-45 minutes. To witness the best results from IPL Photofacial, clients will have a few sessions. These sessions improve skin texture over time and the results are long-lasting as well.
The experts at ISAAC Luxe will first give you a consultation to understand skin ailments and issues. They would also require a medical history of the client to proceed with the treatment. Usually, the treatment is gentle and sans side effects. However, some clients may feel a pinching sensation when going through this treatment. There is no recovery period from the treatment. Clients can immediately get back to a normal lifestyle. They will be able to witness obvious results over several weeks.
Who should opt for IPL treatment?
IPL Photofacial is recommended for clients who have acne-prone skin, or sunspots or have witnessed the first signs of ageing. If you get minimal fine lines and wrinkles, IPL Photofacial will show visible results. Also, those who have suffered significant sun damage, spots, or tanning recently will find IPL treatment very suitable. Before you take the treatment, avoid sunbathing, tanning beds, chemical peels, and collagen injections for at least two weeks to get the best results.
