Are you dedicated to your at-home skincare routine, but concerned your favorite products are not doing enough to protect your skin from environmental and lifestyle factors? Have you considered an aesthetic treatment to reduce the appearance of unwanted imperfections, but a surgical or invasive procedure does not feel like the best fit for you and your lifestyle? Consider IPL treatments! These skin rejuvenation treatments offer diverse benefits to refresh the appearance of your skin and minimize pesky blemishes. Explore the possibilities of these powerful treatments during a consultation with our team at Metabolix Wellness Center in Clearwater, FL!
What Is IPL?
IPL – or intense pulsed light – are non-surgical, non-invasive treatments that use the power of light for photorejuvenation. These skin rejuvenation treatments can be performed to minimize a variety of concerns, such as:
- Acne scars
- Age spots
- Broken capillaries or blood vessels
- Brown spots
- Dull skin tone or texture
- Enlarged pores
- Fine lines
- Lesions (pigmented or vascular)
- Sun damage
- Uneven skin tone or texture
While IPL treatments are most commonly performed on the face, they may be performed on other areas, such as the arms, chest, and neck.
What Could I Expect from a Treatment?
IPL treatments – also called photofacials – are performed in the comfort of our Florida office. Our treatments are performed with the Fluorescent Pulsed Light system to treat skin on a deeper level. As tissues are gently heated, collagen growth is stimulated for the creation of new tissues. There is little to no pain associated with treatment, but you may experience a mild warmth.
IPL photofacials are typically short treatments, and there is not set downtime associated with photorejuvenation sessions. However, it is important to be mindful of your skin as it heals. The treatment area may be tender and sensitive with some redness.
Results achieved with IPL will vary for each person, concern, and area treated. While you may begin to enjoy some initial results shortly after treatment, the best results are often achieved with a series of regular treatment sessions.
Am I a Good Candidate?
IPL treatments can be an effective treatment method for a variety of concerns for most skin tones and types. However, they are traditionally most effective on lighter skin tones. A consultation with our team can help ensure this can be an effective treatment for you and your goals.
It is important to have realistic goals and expectations for treatment. While this can serve as a good non-surgical alternative to more invasive methods, it may not achieve as dramatic results.
