Intense pulsed light or also known as IPL Photofacial drastically reduces the appearance of pigmented lesions (sun spots), vascular lesions (red & blue vessels on the face), and rosacea (inflammation of the cheeks and face). IPL treatments involve the use of light energy to stimulate the production of collagen, the protein that gives your skin its elasticity. So after just a few quick treatments with IPL, the results are truly phenomenal!
Problem: “I have some dark sun spots and discoloration on my face. I don’t want to always put on concealer and foundation!”
Solution: Intense pulsed light or also known as IPL Photofacial. Learn why..
Whether you come in for sun spots, rosacea, or unsightly vessels on your face, IPL can work wonders! It’s great for all skin types (customized settings of level of wavelengths, number of pulses, and lengths of pulses are available for each patients skin type and needs) and offers an immediate rejuvenation to your face.
IPL Photofacial improves the texture and tone of your skin and also diminishes fine lines, wrinkles, and rosacea. In fact, most of 180 medspa patients find that the vessels that brought them in for treatment immediately disappear following IPL treatment!
180 medspa uses the most advanced technology, Palomar RejuveLux Process to provide the most skin-safe, comfortable and effective photo rejuvenation treatments available. These treatments don’t require any downtime – you can literally come in on your lunch break and return to work or to shopping with no worries and no sideways glances. The results are both immediate and long lasting!
And the StarLux pulsed light system doesn’t hurt! It uses a unique long-pulse width that delivers energy to the skin over an extended period of time. This technique makes the pulses both safer and more comfortable. Some patients describe the feeling similar to a very mild, very quick rubber band snap. In addition, various cooling methods keep the light pulses mild and skin-safe, allowing for more comfortable treatments than electrolysis and waxing.
Immediately following your treatment you may experience some redness and mild swelling that can last for 2-3 days. Often, the areas may feel like a mild sunburn; and that feeling may last from 2 to 24 hours. The good news is that your sunspots will darken after treatment and will be naturally shed from the skin within 1-2 weeks.
For rosacea patients, you will see less pronounced redness within a week after treatment and your overall skin tone will soon be more normal. Those patients who use IPL for veins and vessels will find that these blemishes can disappear immediately after treatment or they may appear darker and then fully or partially fade within 10 to 14 days.
