Repairing Sun Damage with Healing Light
IPL Photofacials in Boston, MA
Human skin is designed to absorb light. When your skin detects sunlight, it inspires your body to produce vitamin D—a necessary nutrient for the construction of bone and the reduction of inflammation. But too much sunlight can have a serious impact on the quality, health, and appearance of your skin. Thankfully, manmade light can reverse signs of aging for a smoother, more confident appearance.
At Regeneris Medspa & Cosmetic Surgery, our IPL photofacials use intense pulsed light to break apart unwanted blemishes and age spots (hyperpigmentation) while inspiring the increased production of elastin and collagen—two naturally occurring proteins that promote skin health and tightness. Smooth your complexion while healing old and new scars faster with IPL photofacials from Regeneris Medspa & Cosmetic Surgery.
How IPL Photofacials Work
In reasonable amounts, sunlight is a must-have. But too much exposure to UV radiation can cause unnecessary wear and tear to your skin cells, prematurely aging them or causing them to grow in unwanted (and unhelpful) ways. Freckles, liver spots, age spots, fine lines and wrinkles, and a host of other unwanted skin conditions can result.
Thankfully, intense pulsed light photofacials can help by dispersing gatherings of discolored cells and encouraging collagen and elastin production. Collagen and elastin are responsible for skin tightness, healing, skin “bounce,” and skin “glow.” By breaking apart unwanted blemishes and encouraging a faster and more comprehensive healing response, IPL photofacials are a one stop shop for more youthful looking facial features.
The Benefits of IPL Photofacials
Because IPL photofacials break apart surface abnormalities while also improving overall skin health, they can take care of a wide range of issues in just one sitting. IPL Photofacials can treat a number of ailments in just one go, including:
Multiple issues addressed in one sitting
Can help in the treatment of acne & acne scars
Prevents premature skin aging
Pairs well with other non-surgical treatments
Quick and convenient
Are You Eligible for IPL Photofacials?
Because different skin pigments absorb light at different rates, IPL photofacials are recommended for certain skin tones above others. As always, your candidacy for IPL photofacials should be determined by a licensed professional. If you’re a healthy adult with realistic expectations, IPL photofacials may be for you.
At Regeneris Medspa & Cosmetic Surgery, we only recommend the most suitable procedures to accomplish the best results for each patient. No single treatment fits all. During your consultation, your personal care consultant will speak with you about your medical history and ultimate desires to match you with a procedure that’s safe.
IPL Photofacial FAQs
IPL photofacials are completely safe and comfortable for a vast majority of patients. Some patients may experience some minor heat-related discomfort, but for most, the procedures only get more comfortable as they go along. If you’re worried about discomfort, speak with your provider about topical solutions or alternative therapies.
You should notice results within a week of your first IPL appointment, with more drastic results visible within 4-6 weeks of multiple sessions. For the best results, patients are encouraged to receive several IPL photofacial treatments, but a reduction or elimination in hyperpigmentation and blemishes should occur rapidly after even just the first session.
Blemishes, age spots, and liver spots destroyed during the IPL photofacial treatment will not grow back. IPL breaks up gatherings of discolored skin cells. Afterwards, your body processes the dispersed skin cells and clears them out. Those same spots will never grow back just as they were, though additional sun damage or intense sun exposure could create new discolored spots.
Schedule your IPL Photofacial Consultation
IPL photofacials are quick, safe, simple, and effective for months and months after your final session. Better still, disbanded age spots won’t grow back once scattered by intense pulsed light.
