Summer is around the corner so we’ll all be spending more time exposed to the sun at weddings, graduations and vacations. With more sun exposure, you may notice that your skin will begin looking dull, discolored or spotty. One of the most effective ways to correct your uneven skin tone is with Intense Pulse Light (IPL) Therapy.
What is IPL Therapy?
IPL Therapy utilizes a broad band of light and intense pulses given through a hand-held, computer-controlled flashgun. The broad spectrum light targets irregular pigmentation with minimal effect to surrounding tissue and is absorbed by the darkened pigmentation. The heat produced pulls the hyperpigmentation to the surface of the skin allowing it to flake off during the exfoliation process.
What can IPL Therapy do for me?
IPL Therapy is an effective treatment for enhancing skin tone and creating a rejuvenated look. Being in the sun without the proper protection can often result in hyperpigmentation, brown spots, fine lines and wrinkles and rough textured skin. IPL can help correct all of these problems.
How long will treatment take?
At Alazzo Med Spa, we schedule an hour for treatment when treating the face. If larger areas are being treated, the time will be adjusted accordingly.
What should I do after treatment?
After treatment, your skin will have a pink glow and will need to be protected. If you feel warm to the touch, you can use a cool compress but will be able to return to normal activities immediately. We also recommend an SPF 35 for continued protection.
Starting a series of treatments now means that you can enjoy progressive results leading up to and through the summer months. IPL treatment is just the treatment you’ll need to rejuvenate your skin and have youthful looking skin all summer long. To schedule your first treatment, give us a call today at 301.810.5740.
