Am I An Ideal Candidate For IPL Photofacial?
If you struggle from skin imperfections that have developed over the years, IPL photofacial may be right for you. Aging around the upper torso and neckline is a very common problem because the chest skin is so delicate and so frequently exposed to the direct rays of the sun and ultraviolet sun damage. Brown spots, sunspots, age spots, red spots, rough thickened skin, and wrinkles are all changes that can occur on the décolletage and neckline. These same conditions can occur on your face, as well as on other parts of your body.
The ideal candidate for photorejuvenation treatments is in generally good health and a nonsmoker. Additionally, patients who have a suntan or deeper skin tones are not ideal candidates for an IPL photofacial, as there is a risk for hyperpigmentation. During your consultation for an IPL photofacial, our team will help determine if you are an ideal candidate for photorejuvenation in Atlanta.
What Can I Expect During IPL Photofacial In Atlanta?
Unlike laser skin resurfacing, chemical peels, and dermabrasion, there is almost no downtime with IPL photofacial. That means no blisters, burns, or long recovery periods, and you can go right back to your daily activities after your treatment is complete. First, a topical anesthetic is applied to the treatment area.
After a cold gel is applied, a glass prism is placed over the target area. Pulses of intense light will be flashed through the prism, directed precisely at the treatment area. You may receive several IPL sessions, which are usually performed every three to four weeks. The target area may be slightly pink or red following your treatment. In addition, there may be some mild swelling. It will be recommended that you use sunscreen with a high sun protection factor after your IPL photofacial treatment to protect the skin.
What Can I Expect After IPL Photofacial In Atlanta?
Following an IPL photofacial, it is recommended that patients keep the treated area moist and hydrated. Some patients may experience slight discomfort in the days following their treatment, including redness or swelling. Although these symptoms should subside in the days following the procedure, patients may use aloe or cold compresses to relieve discomfort. Patients should also avoid sun exposure following their treatment.
After your IPL photorejuvenation treatment, our skin care team will provide detailed instructions for taking care of your skin after the procedure. It is important that patients follow these directions with care to achieve the maximum results.
