Over time, various factors, such as repeated sun exposure or the natural aging process, and can affect the appearance of your skin. For example, a loss of elasticity can lead to sagging, while sun damage can cause visible spots to develop. Fortunately, there is something you can do to regain your skin’s youthful glow. Intense pulse light (IPL) treatments can improve the elasticity, texture, and pigmentation of the skin. Dr. Amarpaul Sidhu, the skilled physician at Foothill Cosmetic Surgery Center in Glendora, CA, can rejuvenate your skin with IPL treatments.
How IPL Treatment Works
IPL treatment also referred to as photofacial, involves the delivery of intense pulsed light to the skin to improve its appearance. At our office in Glendora, CA, our exceptional dermatology professionals use an Ellipse IPL handpiece to safely and comfortably deliver short and intense bursts of light to targeted areas of the skin.
During treatment, the skin absorbs wavelengths of light from the IPL device. The light stimulates the skin to begin regenerating itself. Additionally, heat from the light helps break up sun spots, age spots, and other areas affected by pigmentation changes. With each subsequent IPL treatment, skin feels softer and smoother, and looks healthier with less sun damage.
IPL treatment is a safe, non-surgical method for achieving younger-looking skin. Most patients find treatments to be quite comfortable so that no numbing cream is needed. All they feel is a slight warm sensation as the light is passed over the treatment area. Patients with more sensitive skin can benefit from including ice application in their treatment sessions. Following treatment, it is best to avoid sun exposure for a few days. Some patients might experience slight redness of the skin immediately after treatment, which will subside within a few days.
Benefits of IPL Treatment
There are many benefits to undergoing a photo facial with intense pulse light treatments. One of the major benefits of IPL treatment is that the procedure is non-invasive and does not involve any surgery. It is also extremely safe, comfortable, and can be used to treat a variety of skin tones. Perhaps the most appreciated benefit is how well it completely rejuvenates the skin. IPL treatments will leave you with softer, smoother, and more youthful skin.
