How Does IPL in Dallas Work?
The laser used in IPL emits light waves that target your red blood cells or melanin. When it’s absorbed by its target, fragmentation of the vessel wall or pigment is caused. The fragments are then absorbed by your body. The process happens gradually. As the fragments are absorbed, the ultimate result is lightening or elimination of the discoloration and/or veining.
How Do Photofacials Help Increase Collagen?
As the IPL device heats the deeper layers of your dermis, the fibroblasts produce more collagen. As your collagen production increases, you can see an improvement in your skin’s texture as well as a diminishment of fine lines and wrinkles.
What Happens During Treatment?
During treatment, you will wear eye protection. A gel will be placed on the area being treated. Our technician will use a handpiece that has a smooth surface to disperse the IPL light. You will notice flashes of light. Following treatment, the gel will be wiped off. The treatment area will be cleaned and a protective moisturizer will be applied.
It is important to remember that Photofacials are typically performed in more than one treatment. So when we speak of recovery time, it is best to count from your last treatment. The specific stages of your recovery will be discussed with you by our technician. Generally, the recovery time for vein treatments are within days.
How Long Do Results Last?
Each person is different, and you will be given specific advice for your skin. However, as a general guide, the longevity of your results depends on your post-treatment sun exposure. Excessive sun exposure without sunscreen will cause a reoccurrence of the issues. If you properly care for your skin, we may advise simple annual maintenance appointments.
