Refresh Your Skin for Summer with IPL Photorejuvenation
June 10, 2014 - by Dr. Jules Feledy
Does your skin need a rejuvenating boost this season? If you have dull or ruddy-looking skin, freckles, age spots, or broken capillaries, you may be a good candidate for an IPL photorejuvenation treatment. This advanced facial treatment can resolve a number of skin conditions including rosacea, sun-damaged skin, and broken capillaries by using intense pulsed light (IPL) energy waves to stimulate collagen production deep within the skin’s surface. If you have had a chemical peel or other non-invasive skin treatments but aren’t getting the results you want, talk to Dr. Feledy about IPL treatments.
Freshen Up Skin with a Photorejuvenation Treatment
The change of seasons may have left your skin looking dull or ashy due to the fluctuating temperatures. If you have an uneven skin tone or sun-damaged skin that isn’t responding to skincare products or facial treatments, consider an IPL procedure to freshen up your skin this summer. IPL procedures use low-energy broadband light to heat up the skin and trigger your skin’s natural healing response. As your body starts to produce more collagen to rebuild itself, you’ll notice your skin start to become smoother as skin imperfections disappear. This is an FDA-approved treatment and has a very low risk of complications.
Getting Skin Ready for Summer
Most patients need a series of five to eight treatments to see significant results. You can begin IPL treatment plans to achieve beautiful skin for summer.
In addition to getting IPL treatments, here are a few tips to get your skin ready for summer:
- Wear sunscreen every day. Protect your skin from sun damage by applying sunscreen every day and making sure to reapply every two hours if you are spending a lot of time in the sun.
- Get a VISIA Skin Analysis. We can perform a VISIA Skin Analysis to determine any problem areas that need to be addressed and to help you learn more about your skin’s health and appearance. The VISIA system uses a multi-spectral imaging device to identify bacteria, extent of skin tone color variations, and UV damage that we can’t see with the naked eye. This information can be very helpful for determining what types of skin products and treatments will be a good match for your skin.
- Use medical-grade skincare products. Update your daily skincare regimen with Glytone products designed specifically for your skin type. These medical-grade products can address many skin conditions and help you maintain youthful and glowing skin all season long.
