Do sunspots, age spots and facial vessels make you look older on the outside than you feel instead on the inside? If so, photo rejuvenation with our professionals at Elements Rejuvenating Med Spa may be the treatment for you. Our intense pulsed light (IPL) photo rejuvenation, also known as photofacials, provide a safe, comfortable and fast skin-enhancing option for our patients in Davenport, FL.
What Is an IPL Photofacial?
During an IPL photofacial, specific wavelengths are delivered to the specific treatment area. Your treatment specialist will select an optimal wavelength to target the hemoglobin and melanin in your skin, ultimately clearing away any vascular or pigmented lesions. Once the light is absorbed as heat by the lesion, the lesion disappears. Immediately after an IPL photofacial, you can expect a mild sunburn-like sensation that usually fades within a day. The downtime for our photo rejuvenation patients is minimal, and you should be able to resume most of your daily activities.
Our IPL photofacials not only reduce the appearance of imperfections, but they also improve and tighten the skin by working beneath the epidermis to increase collagen production. Collagen is an important fiber that supports skin to keep it firm and taut. By encouraging the production of new tissues, this promotes an overall renewed and refreshed appearance of your complexion.
Some patients have noticed an improvement with acne breakouts, as well. With IPL photofacials, you can minimize damage caused by years of sun exposure and minimize the effects of aging. For maximum results, we recommend a series of treatments to achieve complete clearance.
Is an IPL Photofacial Right for Me?
Most generally healthy individuals concerned about the appearance of their skin may qualify as candidates for treatment. However, it is important to keep in mind this treatment may be better suited for some skin types or tones. Photo rejuvenation can be performed on nearly any area, except directly around the eyes. Most of our IPL photofacial candidates in Davenport are concerned with:
- Sun-damaged skin, including sun spots and age spots
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Benign brown pigments
- Dilated blood vessels
- Redness caused by broken capillaries (telangiectasia)
