Living in beautiful Southern California, the sun is quite inviting. Days at the beach, park, or enjoying outdoor activities can bring great memories as well as some unwanted effects. As the skin ages, sun damage that has occurred over many years becomes increasingly noticeable. The reason problems with pigmentation, texture, and suppleness develop as we get older is that the substances that support tight, healthy skin gradually diminish with each passing year. Has your skin lost its youthful glow? Are you struggling with sagging skin or visible spots? It is possible to correct these problems and regain your confidence when you consult with the team at Foothill Cosmetic Surgery Center about our various skin rejuvenation treatments.
A popular treatment for skin rejuvenation is the IPL photofacial. Patients of Foothill Cosmetic Surgery Center can expect to receive excellent results from the use of the Ellipse IPL. IPL is Intense Pulsed Light. This treatment targets skin cells for rejuvenation through short intense bursts of light delivered via a safe, precision hand piece. The technology used in IPL treatment is incredibly advanced and proven to achieve beautiful results safely in the area of texture, pigmentation, and elasticity.
IPL treatment is different from laser skin rejuvenation and may be the ideal solution for many people's concerns. While both laser and IPL use light to treat the skin, IPL delivers a band of wavelengths rather than one specific type.
Due to the strength of light absorption, IPL is great for individuals with a lighter complexion. The Ellipse device, however, can be programmed to treat a variety of skin tones. In consultation with our experienced physician, you can discover the treatment or treatments that will most efficiently achieve your aesthetic goals.
IPL is a comfortable, convenient treatment that requires no use of numbing cream. In the short treatment session, a slight warmth is felt as light is absorbed by skin cells. Most people who have IPL treatments describe them as very comfortable. Patients with sensitive skin may have ice application included into their treatment. Following IPL, we encourage patients to avoid sun exposure for a few days and to wear broad-spectrum sunscreen with a high SPF. Slight redness after IPL will subside over several days as skin become more radiant, soft, and beautiful.
