It consists of shooting light deep into our skin, where it is absorbed by melanin, which is responsible for pigmented blemishes, and hemoglobin, responsible for vascular ones Absorbing the light causes these substances to be heated up and destroyed, eliminating or lessening the blemishes they cause.
The light’s penetration also stimulates collagen production, which improves the skin’s texture, reduces pore size, eliminates fine expression lines, and evens out the skin’s tone.
How is the IPL treatment?
Aureo Clinic IPL facial session can last between 5 and 20 minutes. 3 to 5 sessions are normally needed to achieve good results; an improvement is noticeable after the first session.
It doesn’t tend to be an uncomfortable treatment, although this depends on each patient’s tolerance. It is normally described as a sensation of heat and there is no need for prior anesthesia.
We can treat different areas: face, neck, neckline, and the back of the hand. These are areas routinely exposed to the sun, and where photoaging is more evident. In addition to congenital pigmented and vascular lesions, hemangiomas, rosacea, ruby spots, and more.
Pre and post-treatment recommendations
IPL photorejuvenation treatment is more effective with untanned skin due to it offering a greater degree of contrast between the blemish or redness and the skin. Furthermore, tanned skin absorbs more light; this results in a less effective and more painful treatment. For this reason we recommend using SPF 50 sunblock during the weeks prior to the IPL session.
Incorporation into social and work life after treatment is immediate and no specific post-treatment care is necessary, except for using sun protection cream with factor 50.
