With fall just around the corner, now is the time to start thinking about skin rejuvenation options that will take you into the new season in style. In addition to refreshing your complexion, you want a treatment that will effectively reverse the sun damage your skin suffered throughout the summer season. The staff at New Visage often recommends an IPL photofacial to our patients this time of year, because it is the perfect rejuvenation treatment for reversing that sun damage and helping you move into the holiday season with clearer, brighter skin.
What is an IPL Photofacial?
IPL is a non-invasive method of skin rejuvenation that uses a variety of light wavelengths to address a myriad of specific skin concerns. The procedure is performed at New Visage on an outpatient basis and usually only takes a few minutes to complete. The procedure involves little discomfort and no downtime, making it easy to fit your IPL photofacial sessions into your daily schedule.
The Ideal Treatment Time
Results of an IPL photofacial tend to be best when the skin is not exposed to a lot of direct sunlight. During the fall months, you may find it easier to remain indoors during the days prior to and following your treatment, which can greatly enhance your results. Fall is also a good time to address signs of sun damage that occurred over the summer months, restoring your skin to a state of optimal health prior to the holiday season.
Reversing Ultraviolet Damage
While outdoor play is a popular pastime in the warm weather months, all that sunshine can take its toll on your complexion. The IPL photofacial is an excellent choice for reversing damage caused by the ultraviolet rays of the sun throughout the summer. Signs of damage might include freckles, fine lines and spider veins that often appear after regular sun exposure.
Other Benefits of the IPL Photofacial
In addition to reversing sun damage, the IPL photofacial can also effectively treat the following skin concerns:
- Irregular skin texture and tone
- Shallow scarring from acne and chicken pox
- Some types of birthmarks
Some patients may also find IPL photofacials help them to manage their symptoms of rosacea more effectively.
An IPL photofacial is an excellent option for getting your skin ready for the upcoming cooler weather. By starting your treatments now, you can see significant improvement to your skin before the holiday season officially launches.
