If you are one of the millions of people who have mild to severe problems with your skin, know there are non-surgical treatments out there to consider. You don’t have to be stuck with an uneven skin complexion, you just need to know what treatments are out there that can truly help you. One treatment in particular is called IPL.
IPL or intense pulsed light therapy is used to treat red or brown discoloration in the skin. This treatment is great for those who have rosacea, broken capillaries, sun damage or brown spots! IPL emits multiple wavelengths of light to target and break apart the pigmentation. The pigmented spots are then pulled to the surface of the skin and can have a coffee ground like texture as the pigment is dissipated. This noninvasive treatment does have downtime with 3-7 days. This treatment is not for those who have melasma or tan skin, as the light is attracted to pigment. It’s great for the spots on the face, neck, chest and back of hands.
When doing this treatment it is advised to use SkinMedica’s Lytera Pigment System. This skin regimen is designed to help brighten the skin and diminish dark spots. It is great to use all year round! The system contains AHA/BHA cleanser to gently exfoliate the skin, Lytera 2.0 pigmentation serum to help minimize the appearance of dark spots and to aid fight against hyperpigmentation, AHA/BHA cream to improve tone and texture, Retinol .5 for age defense and Total Defense & Repair SPF 34 to fight against UVA UVB and infrared rays!
Through the end of this month you can purchase the SkineMedica Lytera System and receive an IPL treatment for FREE! We recommend setting up a consultation with our Aesthetic Nurse Specialist Kim Hill to discuss your treatment.
