At Saving Faces Salon/Spa in Oklahoma City, skin rejuvenation with the intense pulsed light (IPL) can help you have younger-looking skin, a more even skin tone, and an overall improved completion.
The IPL will diminish fine lines and wrinkles by filling in the skin from the inside out with new skin cells after the old ones are zapped, destroyed, and replaced.
Because the IPL plumps up the skin, it's like giving yourself a collagen injection but with your own collagen. Scars, birthmarks, and stretch marks are reduced with multiple treatments from photorejuvenation.
Erase sunspots as well as hyperpigmentation from melasma with a photo facial. It treats broken capillaries and redness due to rosacea. IPL laser even removes unwanted hair!
The number of treatments depends on the depth of the skin condition to be treated.
IPL is an FDA-approved, patented technology that provides dramatic results for a variety of skin conditions.
The term photorejuvenation refers to the non-invasive, non-ablative treatments that are a safe, effective, and popular way to remove signs of aging from the face, neck, arms, back, and hands.
If you're looking to eliminate your crow’s feet, diminish mouth wrinkles, remove sun damage, and tighten that neck, IPL photorejuvenation may be for you. Call now to schedule your appointment.
Short blasts of high-intensity light energy are sent through the epidermis to penetrate just below the skin's surface. The energy is concentrated in the dermis, damaging the melanin that makes sunspots or blood vessels that create broken capillaries.
The skin repairs the damage, leaving you with a more even skin tone. IPL also boosts and stimulates the production of collagen and elastin, thus tightening and lifting the skin.
In turn, the intense pulsed light penetrates through the hair shaft down to the follicle where wavelengths heat and destroy the hair root, causing the hair to fall out.
It generally takes a series of 3 to 6 treatments, required about 28 days apart, to see the best results. The treatments usually take between 20 to 50 minutes.
Most people describe the sensation to the snap of a rubber band on the skin or the feeling of being pinched. You may experience some redness that should resolve within a few hours. The pain is minimal to nonexistent.
After one photo rejuvenation treatment, your skin will have a more even skin tone and look and feel smoother. Pores will shrink, and fine lines and wrinkles will start to decrease in size. Dark spots will begin to lighten. With some pigmented lesions, you will see a darkening of the treated area followed by fading and flaking off at a later stage.
Pregnant or breastfeeding women, those sensitive to light, people with heart disease, severe diabetes, high blood pressure, or epilepsy, or those who have a pacemaker are not allowed to use the IPL.
