How Soon Will You See Results After an IPL Photofacial?
After years of fun in the sun and a life full of memories, many Beverly Hills, CA men and women begin to see hyperpigmentation issues on their face and neck in addition to traditional signs of aging, like lines and wrinkles. While typically harmless, these spots of discoloration can cause feelings of self-consciousness or embarrassment. These features can often leave men and women feeling like they look old and wondering if there’s any way to get the youthful appearance they once had.
At Aesthetic Body Solutions, board-certified internist Dr. Dale Prokupek has a solution for these unsightly spots – IPL (intense pulsed light) photofacial. With IPL, many patients begin to see healthy, glowing, and youthful-looking results almost immediately after their first session.
What is an IPL photofacial?
An IPL photofacial is a nonsurgical treatment that can brighten the complexion of Beverly Hills, CA men and women by reducing the appearance of sun damage, age spots, and more. This 15 – 45-minute skin rejuvenation treatment uses state-of-the-art broadband light energy to raise the temperature of the skin to ignite the skin’s natural healing process and increase collagen production. Together, the healing process and collagen growth will cause the skin irregularities under your skin to come to the surface and flake off, and be replaced with new, healthy skin. Once you’ve decided an IPL photofacial is right for you, there are a few things you can do to ensure you get the best results possible, including:
- Avoid sun exposure
- Stop using self-tanner
- Discuss current medications with Dr. Prokupek
What to expect after IPL photofacial?
Following your treatment, you can get right back to your daily schedule, but you may have some swelling and pink areas. Dr. Prokupek or one of his talented team members will provide you with at-home care routine instructions to help you heal properly and get stunning results. Your IPL photofacial results will likely start to become visible right away, but you’ll see optimal results in the days and weeks following your treatment. We typically suggest multiple appointments for even better results, however. How many treatments you will need depends on the current condition of your skin and your desired results. You can expect that after your first IPL photofacial, you’ll likely need about 4 – 6 follow-up treatments about four weeks apart at Aesthetic Body Solutions in Beverly Hills, CA to meet your specific desires. As long as you take care of your skin between each treatment, you can expect your IPL photofacial results to last for many years to come!
