Many individuals are a little bit put off thinking about using a surgical procedure to help them reduce wrinkles. Of course, if an individual wants to look their best, this may be a necessary step they will have to take when they are a little bit older. However, for most individuals who are in their forties, using a surgical procedure, like a facelift, may not be necessary. Thankfully, there are a wide variety of cosmetic treatment options that are available to help reduce wrinkles. One of them is IPL photorejuvenation.
If you are unfamiliar with IPL photorejuvenation, you should know that this is a safe procedure that uses intense pulse light. That is what “IPL” stands for. This is not a laser therapy. However, it involves shining highly concentrated light on the surface of the skin. These intense beams of light are going to target wrinkles, giving you a more even skin tone. They can also be used to target pigmentation and vascular irregularities, further helping you to have a much younger-looking and smoother complexion.
When an individual first hears about a specific treatment for getting rid of wrinkles or to treat any other aging issue, they may feel a little bit nervous and wonder if it is safe. You should be confident when you come into our office. You can feel assured knowing that our experienced and certified technicians will perform this procedure on you in a safe and effective way.
All of our treatments start off with a consultation. During this consultation, we are going to thoroughly assess your medical history and the current condition of your health. We want to identify any potential for complications and avoid them. We also want to make sure that the treatment that you choose is something that is going to be compatible with your current skin care needs and health.
Another concern that many individuals have when they are unfamiliar with a cosmetic treatment is if the treatment is going to be uncomfortable and if it is going to require a lot of downtime. IPL photorejuvenation is not highly uncomfortable. However, you will feel some sensations during treatment. Many individuals have compared the sensation they feel during IPL photorejuvenation to being gently snapped with an elastic band.
Most individuals will only be in our office for about 30 minutes for treatment, and then they can get right back to their normal routine. There is no downtime needed with this treatment.
Some individuals need to return to our office a couple of times to get the best results. The number of treatments that you will need to reduce wrinkles and to treat other skin issues will depend on your particular circumstances.
