Skin Renewal with IPL

As we age, the stories of our youth show on our face. Photoaging (sun damage) is a telltale sign of fun in the sun. From brown, patchy skin, rosacea, and hyperpigmentation to facial veins and sun spots millions of Americans are looking to reverse the damage of their youth.

If the skin is a window into our overall health, it is essential that we keep it looking as healthy and vibrant as possible. Many treatments claim to help improve the appearance and quality of our skin, but it is hard to know what procedures produce the best results.

IPL stands for Intense Pulsed Light, which is a treatment that can transform red, blotchy, aging and sun damaged skin into a more youthful, radiant complexion. Similar to a laser, IPL uses broad-spectrum light to penetrate the skin surface at the precise location where the damage originates. The IPL treatment triggers the body’s natural response to remove the damaged tissue and regenerate healthy, smoother tissue.

IPL can be used to treat virtually any area of the skin that has photoaging. It is most commonly used on the face, chest, and hands. While improvement may be seen immediately, maximum improvement necessitates a series of treatments. Most people achieve optimal results within four to six treatments that are administered every three weeks. Downtime after IPL treatment is minimal.

At Amani MedSpa, IPL is used to treat a variety of skin conditions including:

  • Melasma
  • Rosacea
  • Age Spots
  • Facial Veins
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Sun Damage
  • Improving skin’s texture and tone with no downtime

Sun damage will continue to occur as long as the sun shines. While it is important to take protective measures like using sunscreen and minimizing sun exposure, it is nice to know that there are solutions available to reverse damage and rejuvenate the skin.
