As you get older, you may start to notice that the skin on your face begins to change. Blemishes and spots may begin to form, causing you to look older than you actually are. At Mara’s Med Spa we understand that these skin conditions can be embarrassing and concerning, which is why we offer a wide range of treatments such as IPL photofacial, to remove signs of aging and damage to your face and give you a refreshed and rejuvenated appearance.
It can be done anywhere on the body
Most users tend to start on the facial area but once they start to see the results, they tend to travel to other problem areas of the skin such as the neck, shoulders and chest and hands.
Can help repair small blood vessels
If you have small blood vessels that have become visible, enhance sunspots or cause other irregularities in pigmentation, IPL is a great solution to help clear the skin.
Helps control acne
If you suffer from severe acne and experience issues combating the redness and inflammation caused by acne, IPL treatments can help. IPL can help eliminate large pores and thus reduce the appearance of acne on your skin without the need to constantly apply topical products that dry out the skin.
Reduces skin redness
If you suffer from rosacea or any other type of skin condition that diffuses redness into the skin, IPL photofacial therapy is a great treatment solution for reducing the appearance of redness and helping create an even and natural complexion.
Minimizes signs of aging
While IPL isn’t necessarily an anti-aging solution, it does have lasting effects in helping reduce the signs of aging such as wrinkles, sunspots and other indicators of aging. By treating a deeper layer of the skin, IPL stimulates collagen growth and helps improve the skin’s texture, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Lower cost solution
While most skin treatments are extremely expensive, IPL photofacial treatments often cost less than laser treatments and also provide results for the long-term, unlike a regular facial.
Allows for additional treatment
Another great benefit of IPL photorejuvenation procedures is that they can be done in conjunction with other treatments such a microdermabrasion, chemical peels and other facial skin treatments that target the outermost layer of the skin. Since IPL treatments target the deeper layers of the skin, they can safely be performed with other treatments that target the outermost layer of skin.
It’s fast and easy
The issue with most facial treatments these days is that they’re time-consuming and have downtime. With IPL treatments, each photofacial procedure can take anywhere from 15 to 30 minutes maximum, so it can easily fit into the busy lifestyle of today’s go-getters. The other great benefit of IPL treatments is that you can go right back to whatever you were doing before the procedure, as there is no downtime to follow.
While a small percentage of patients express feeling a slight sensation during the procedure, the other roughly 90% of patients have no pain at all during the IPL photofacial treatments. If you do experience a slight discomfort, applying a topical anesthetic 30-45 minutes prior to the procedure can easily reduce this.
