Ageing is a fact no one can dispute. However, looking like you are the age you actually are is something that many of us have the power to affect. Whether it’s because of genetics or just a love for basking in the sun, as the years pass by, our skin can lose its natural glow. When we were teenagers we were foolish to think that when we’ll grow out of our acne problems our skin will turn into a perfect and blemish-free surface. However, that is simply not the case for many people and as we grow up, many of us start experiencing pigmentation problems such as freckles, rosacea, broken capillaries and similar, on top of the usual development of wrinkles and widened pores.
And no cream or specialized diet can reverse these signs of ageing on our skin, so many of us just hope that one day they will wake up and be brought back to their hay days. But let’s be honest, spotless skin does not happen by chance, you need to take good care of it and regularly perform skin treatments to rejuvenate it. And today, the latest skin care technology that has so far yielded only positive results is IPL skin rejuvenation.
Intense Pulsed Light, or also known as a Photorejuvenation treatment, is the latest technology which is used to:
- lighten and remove age spots, sun spots, and any brown pigmentation on any area of the body;
- treat redness, dilated and broken blood vessels and rosacea;
- control flushing due to menopause and other causes;
- improve skin elasticity and shine through collagen stimulation;
- reduce pore size by balancing the oiliness of the skin.
When applied properly and by an experienced skin care clinician, all of these IPL skin rejuvenation benefits can be reaped with minimal discomfort and no risk. In order to reach the desired results, 4-6 sessions are performed and each session lasts about 15 to 20 minutes. Make sure that every following session is a few weeks after the previous one so that your skin does not get irritated. However, in the meantime you don’t have to worry about looking like Samantha from Sex and the City after a botched chemical peel – IPL skin rejuvenation is a non-invasive and non-aggressive treatment after which you can freely put on some make up and no one will even notice you went under the laser.
The way IPL eliminates redness and broken capillaries is by emitting a range of light waves that target directly the hemoglobin which triggers the blood vessels to heal themselves. If you want your spots and freckles to be removed, the laser will be tuned to target the melanin (the brown pigment) that created them and gradually reduce it until it’s completely eliminated. The process of IPL skin rejuvenation also has the added effect of stimulating the production of collagen which is naturally reduced as a result of ageing. Collagen improves the volume and elasticity of skin, making it look fresher and younger.
All in all, this method is a safe and proven way to reduce and even eliminate the aesthetic signs of ageing. And we all know how rejuvenating your skin also makes you feel younger and more self-confident. Wait no longer and schedule an IPL appointment.
