ROSACEA (FACIAL REDNESS)
Rosacea is a chronic (long term) skin condition. Rosacea symptoms are flushing or redness on the face. Facial redness on the cheeks, nose, chin, and forehead is mostly accompanied by a slight swelling and burning feeling. Rosacea commonly affects people with fair skin and blue eyes. It typically occurs in people between the ages of 30 and 60. Most Men seeking rosacea treatment often suffer from rhinophyma, which is the thickening of the skin on the nose making it swollen and bulbous.

TREATING PIGMENTATION WITH IPL
When addressing pigmentation concerns with IPL technology, the Intense pulsed light system releases precisely controlled strong pulses of filtered light that are absorbed by the melanin in freckles, sun spots and liver spots. The pigmented area absorbs the light and is heated to the point that the skin renews itself with fresh and healthy regenerated cells. Following treatment, the pigmented area turns darker and crusting is completely normal. Over the following weeks, the pigmented area will gradually flake away from the skin leaving little trace of the original mark.
Whether born with them or acquired over the course of a lifetime, virtually everyone has sun spots, freckles or skin discolorations that they’d love to get rid of and treatment with an IPL machine is a professional, cutting-edge and effective means of achieving this. Clients will require a treatment cycle that consists of a series of 4 – 6 treatments spaced four weeks apart to achieve optimal results. Results can be visible as soon as the first treatment.
Common pigmentation treatment areas include the back of hands, forearms, décolleté and face.
REASONS TO GET IPL PHOTOFACIAL
Before we get into all the reasons why an IPL photofacial is great, let’s cover the basics. For starters, an IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) therapy is used to treat sun damage, wrinkles, stretch marks and age spots. IPL is also known as photo rejuvenation or photo facial. Treatments are used to erase mild sun damage, brown spots, freckles or irregular pigmentation on the face, neck, or even chest.
Alternatively, IPL treatments can also be used for hair reduction but multiple treatments may be necessary. However, the benefits are worth every penny, so long as they are performed by a licensed and experienced skin care specialist.
Here are 9 reasons why you should consider getting an IPL photofacial today and never look back.
#1: It can be done anywhere - Most users tend to start on the facial area but once they start to see the results, they tend to travel to other problem areas of the skin like the neck, shoulders and chest. With IPL treatments anywhere that you have skin or skin problems is an area that photo facial rejuvenation can fix.
#2: Can help repair small blood vessels - If you have small blood vessels that have become visible, enhance sunspots or cause other irregularities in pigmentation, IPL is a great solution to help clear the skin.
#3: Helps control acne - If you suffer from severe acne and experience issues combating the redness and inflammation caused by acne, IPL treatments can help. IPL can help eliminate large pores and thus reduce the appears of acne on your skin without the need to constantly apply topical products that dry out the skin.
#4: Reduces skin redness - If you suffer from rosacea or any other type of skin condition that diffuses redness into the skin, IPL photofacial therapy is a great treatment solution for reducing the appearance of redness and helping create an even and natural complexion.
#5: Minimizes signs of aging - While IPL isn’t necessarily an anti-aging solution, it does have lasting effects in helping reduce the signs of aging such as wrinkles, sunspots and other indicators of aging. By treating a deeper layer of the skin, IPL stimulates collagen growth and helps improve the skin’s texture, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
#6: Lower cost solution - While most skin treatments are extremely expensive, IPL photo facial treatments often cost less than laser treatments and also provide results for the long-term, unlike a regular facial.
#7: Allows for additional treatment - Another great benefit of IPL photo rejuvenation procedures is that they can be done in conjunction with other treatments such as microdermabrasion, chemical peels and other facial skin treatments that target the outermost layer of the skin. Since IPL treatments target the deeper layers of the skin, they can safely be performed with other treatments that target the outmost layer of skin.
#8: It’s quick and easy - The issue with most facial treatments these days is that they’re time consuming and have downtime. With IPL treatments, each photofacial procedure can take anywhere from 15 to 30 minutes maximum, so it can easily fit into the busy lifestyle of today’s go getters. The other great benefit of IPL treatments is that you can go right back to whatever you were doing before the procedure, as there is no downtime to follow. No need to miss work or have to skip on picking the kids up after school.
#9: No Pain - While a small percentage of patients express feeling a slight sensation during the procedure, the other roughly 90% of patients have no pain at all during the IPL photo facial treatments. If you do experience a slight discomfort, applying a topical anesthetic 60 minutes prior to the procedure can easily reduce this. Some of the new technology systems are virtually pain free.
