IPL: Your Last Hope for Skin Rejuvenation
You may be wondering; what’s this IPL thing, and why is it making noise in the cosmetic industry?
Well, the answer for that can be found on the tons of positive reviews online. It’s for you to find out why more and more people are tossing their old skincare routines for this magical device: IPL.
IPL, which stands for Intense Pulsed Light, is a technology that utilizes a broad-spectrum of light that is emitted at multiple wavelengths. It is used in performing a variety of skin procedures for aesthetic and therapeutic purposes. It is proven to be effective in hair removal and overall skin rejuvenation.
IPL device works by sliding it directly on your skin. Its lamp flashes intense pulses of light that are penetrated in the skin. Through this process, light brings damage to the skin pigments that cause unwanted skin conditions. IPL targets explicitly the dark pigments, known as the melanin.
As mentioned earlier, IPL works best for hair removal and skin rejuvenation. If you are experiencing unwanted hair growth, get rid of it using this device. And for the most amazing part, IPL can deal with your aging skin. As of today, it can solve numerous skin concerns, such as wrinkles, fine lines, blemishes, acne, acne scars, rosacea, and a lot more. The secret behind it is that the intense pulses of light stimulate healthy collagen production. We already know how important collagen is for the skin.
Preparing for Your IPL Treatment
Before deciding to undergo this treatment, it is pretty vital to have yourself checked first by a professional to determine if you are an ideal candidate. Usually, you will be asked to take a patch test first. This will conclude if your skin is suitable for light-based therapies.
However, if you know you’re suntanned or have naturally dark skin, you might want to refrain from this procedure. Since IPL works by targeting dark pigments, it could get a bit hard to accomplish if the actual skin is dark itself. In short, IPL won’t be able to determine which is which.
But through continuous developments, IPL devices with lower energy levels became available to fit in the needs of each skin color and type. Your job here is to find the best device for your skin. Just keep this advice to always seek expert help – for your own safety!
