It goes without saying that we all want to have smooth, supple and glowing skin and we constantly strive to find effective and easy ways to make it happen. A relatively new and advanced method of skin rejuvenation, known as Intense pulsed light (IPL), is serving all these purposes and is gaining limelight owing to its worthwhile results.
IPL Photo Rejuvenation is an FDA approved method of skin rejuvenation that is ideal for a broad range of skin concerns such as wrinkles, premature ageing, blemishes, resistant acne, sun damage, scars, freckles, or uneven skin tone.
In this method, light rays emit from a specialized device and target the skin concerns or deliver an overall rejuvenation. These light rays primarily target pigmented skin cells (melanin) and others, and produce an effect of a pseudo injury. The skin considers it as an injurious stimulus and begins naturally healing. This results in resurfacing of the dermal tissue. Thus, old skin cells are replaced by new cells and the protein synthesis also increases. In addition, IPL also targets the dark pigment, visible as blemishes, age spots or uneven skin tone, thus improving complexion and promoting a bright and even skin tone.
The Skin Rejuvenation Advanced (SRA) applicator has been tested to safely deliver optical light and radio frequency and produces remarkable results. It helps reversing sun damage, treats broken capillaries, freckles, fine lines, and diffuse redness to promote a smooth complexion. This photo facial for facial rejuvenation has been on a rise among skin care regimens. Usually, at least three treatment protocols are recommended to achieve desired results.
Among the added benefits are, its minor side effects such as minor self-limiting redness, ease of delivery and quick results. It is economical when compared to other methods of similar efficacy in skin care and rejuvenation. Also, it has been found compatible with other non-surgical skin treatments. Besides face, IPL skin rejuvenation can also be performed on other body regions. The limitations, however, are melasma, tanned skin, or darker skin tones. It is also unsafe in pregnancy and certain illnesses of serious nature. Furthermore, oral or topical skin medications should be stopped before undergoing IPL skin rejuvenation treatment. Prior consultation of a qualified professional is recommended for getting effective results.
