Have you started noticing small brown spots on your skin? If so, you’re not alone. Many patients who have spent extended time in the sun are vulnerable to experiencing accelerated signs of premature aging on their face, hands, and decollate. These sun spots are a form of skin damage, and they represent one of the most common skin concerns. Fortunately, there's a simple solution to improve your skin tone and restore a more youthful-looking complexion, a photofacial treatment.
IPL photofacial treatment is a simple, non-surgical way to effectively target pigment under the skin's surface to reduce the appearance of discoloration and premature aging. There is minimal discomfort and typically only some redness for about a day afterward. With IPL photofacials, you can achieve noticeably brighter, clearer, and more youthful-looking skin. Each photorejuvenation treatment also works on vascular marks, such as spider veins and capillaries. All it takes is a few quick treatments, each of which lasts about 20-30 minutes and fits easily into your busy schedule or even on a lunch break.
IPL Photofacial treatment Work?
IPL photofacial is powered by Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) with SmartPulse™ technology, this multifaceted Venus device delivers intense pulses of light through several layers of the skin with complete precision. The light reduces or will eliminate common effects like skin discolouration, browns and reds. IPL light also encourages the product of collagen, a natural protein, making the skin smooth and supple. The targeted tissue absorbs the heat generated by these pulses which serves to correct the skin flaws being targeted. The surrounding tissues face no damage at all.
In comparison to other devices, the IPL Venus Versa™ is designed with your comfort and convenience in mind. The applicator comes equipped with a built-in cooling feature so as to make the entire treatment as comfortable as possible for you. If you still feel any kind of discomfort while treating sensitive areas like the upper lip, the device settings can be adjusted and personalized for your comfort.
How to prepare before & after the treatment?
You’ll be asked to stay out of sunlight before getting the treatment done.
If you’ve tanned recently, we’ll ask you to wait a while before coming in for treatments.
We’ll ask you to avoid medications that make you more sensitive to light, but always consult your doctor before stopping prescribed medications.
You’ll be asked to avoid scented lotions, exfoliants, and aggressive scrubbing.
It’s normal for freckles and sunspots to initially get darker and they usually flake off within one to three weeks.
You might feel something like a sunburn after the treatment, but an ice pack should help.
Frequently Asked Questions
How Can Infrared Light Therapy Help with Pain Management?Poor circulation and the lack of oxygen and other essential molecules (i.e., glucose, Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP)) in blood vessels can cause pain or a lack of sensation. Light energy stimulates the release of nitric oxide, causing blood vessels to increase in diameter (vasodilation) and allowing more blood flow, oxygen, and other important factors to be delivered. This increase in oxygen and nutrients, along with stimulation of the light energy emitted from Celluma LED devices increases ATP production, which activates pain relieving pathways. This decreases pain and inflammation, and increases tissue regeneration in the localized area.
How does anti-Aging Treatment with LED Light Therapy work?Now that we've established a base understanding of why collagen is essential as we age, let's look at the most groundbreaking and natural way to effectively generate more collagen in your body using the anti-aging effect of LED light therapy. Proven red and near-infrared wavelengths are utilized in the Celluma LED light therapy device to combat the signs of aging. These specific wavelengths of light energy are clinically verified to enhance your body's natural ability to generate collagen and elastin by activating the fibroblast cells. No prescriptions. No medications. No injections. No surgery. Just safe, natural wavelengths of effective, proven light energy.
How can Blue Light Therapy Eliminate Acne Faster?If you suffer from acne, it’s likely you’ve heard of light therapy as a possible solution to your pimple woes. LED blue light therapy is the new wave of skin care for people who have tried other acne treatments, but still aren’t seeing the results they want. Light therapy used to only be available at a dermatologist’s or aestheticians office, but with the advent of affordable, effective, at-home light therapy device design, blue light for acne is becoming a household treatment that’s non-toxic, non-invasive, and really, really effective. LED light therapy works by killing acne-causing bacteria at the source, deep beneath the skin’s surface. As people across the nation are searching for more natural, chemical-free alternatives to traditional medical solutions, light therapy fits the bill perfectly. Blue LED light therapy emits specific, clinically-proven wavelengths of light to trigger an all-natural effect in human tissue, killing acne-causing bacteria, decreasing inflammation, and improving skin tone, texture, and clarity from the inside out. However, not all light therapy is created equal. Blue and red LED light light-therapy is widely used as an effective option for the treatment of inflammatory acne. One study concluded that “…blue light and red light may act synergistically in improving acne by combining antibacterial and anti-inflammatory action, rendering phototherapy with blue and/or red light an effective and safe treatment for acne vulgaris.
IPL Photofacial TESTIMONIALS
I have had 4 laser treatments done by Amanda on my face for rosacea and she ALWAYS took such great care of me. She explained the tools and process to me, I had a cozy blanket and relaxing music and I felt calm and at ease. She and Rania are incredibly knowledgeable (wow they have so many certifications and years of experience!) and have such genuine care for their clients. I have always left feeling fresh and pampered. I recommend this medi spa 1000x over any other spa, especially for any busy moms that need some TLC!
