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 laser 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 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. Your technician will use a handpiece that has a smooth glass surface to disperse the laser. You will notice flashes of light.
Following treatment, the gel will be wiped off. The treatment area will be cleaned with a warm cloth and a sun protective moisturizer will be applied. We may give you a cold pack to apply to the treatment area for five or ten minutes. If your face is the area treated, your technician will let you know if you will be able to reapply your makeup immediately following your procedure.
What Is The Recovery Time?
It is important to remember that Photofacials 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 your technician. Generally, the recovery time for vein treatments are within five days but for some can take as long as two weeks. For discoloration and age spots recovery is about a month.
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. If you want to maintain peaked collagen stimulation, or you are very red we may recommend treatments every six to twelve months.
