Skin Texture is Everything
Are we focusing too much on lines and wrinkles? We spend a lot of time and money trying to erase nature with sometimes unnatural looking results. Don't get me wrong, Botox and Fillers are great, but smooth, even skin is everything.
A healthy complexion is fresh and rosy. Aging skin is plagued by scarring, sun spots and areas of dull or redness. There are a number of products and treatments that can help. Intense Pulsed Light (IPL), in particular, is especially effective to do in the winter while staying out of the sun.
A handheld flashgun is passed across the skin, delivering a spectral range of light that targets the hair or skin issues:
Lightening and removing “sun spots”, “age spots”, and brown blotches on the face, neck, chest, hands and other areas of the body
Lightening and reducing redness, rosacea, dilated blood vessels and “broken” blood vessels on the face, neck and chest
Helping to control flushing
Improving skin texture through collagen stimulation and improves pore size minimally by temporarily reducing oiliness
IPL, when done properly, almost always consists of a series of 3-5 treatments, usually one every three to six weeks. The benefits of IPL are achieved with little discomfort and minimal risk. You can see some improvement with each treatment, but it’s common for your response to be slightly different to each treatment. The more sun damage or redness you have, the more likely you are to need a full five treatments. Some cases of severe redness or brown spots require more than 5 treatments. Expect to see gradual clearing over time.
