Laser Facial and IPL Photofacial in Salt Lake City
Do you have photoaging, mottled discoloration, red blemishes, broken blood vessels, age spots, rosacea, or generalized sun damage on your skin that you wish to treat? If so, Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) photofacial therapy may be the perfect option. This treatment utilizes a laser-like technology used to address numerous skin problems and can provide you with a youthful, smooth, and revitalized appearance you will love. One of the best parts of this method is that treatments are noninvasive, usually very well-tolerated, and result in very little downtime for most of our patients after the treatment.
When might I need IPL photorejuvenation?
If you experience uneven skin tone and texture, IPL photorejuvenation may be beneficial for you. Those who have sun-damaged, blotchy, or discolored skin are qualified, as are individuals with wrinkles, freckles, or large pores. This kind of intense pulsed light treatment can drastically improve the quality of your skin, often undoing years and years of damage. Although this treatment can be highly effective for some, those who have darker skin tones don’t always respond well to IPL photofacial treatment.
The IPL photofacial treatment procedure
This treatment is painless and fast and involves only slight discomfort. Well worth it, this 30-minute treatment utilizes pulses of light that make the collagen and blood vessels beneath the skin constrict. This act diminishes the appearance of lines, bumps, redness and more. There may be slight redness and swelling after your treatment, but you can look forward to lasting results that continue to positively develop days and weeks after your treatment.
Where can I use IPL photorejuvenation?
You can improve the quality of your skin with IPL photorejuvenation on virtually any part of your body that is covered in healthy skin. Some of the areas we can be with IPL therapy at Swinyer-Woseth Dermatology include:
- Upper chest
Who might not benefit from this treatment?
- Those with darker skin tones don’t react as positively to IPL photofacial treatment, as their skin tone can get darker and blotchier. This means those with an olive or brown complexion (from the Mediterranean or African descent) may want to opt out of this treatment. Also, those on the acne medication Accutane should not undergo this treatment at least six months after taking their last dose. Pregnant women should also refrain from IPL photofacials during their pregnancy.
