Every day your skin is exposed to UV rays, pollutants, and free radicals. All of these can age your skin prematurely causing fine lines, wrinkles, age spots, and skin that doesn’t have the same bounce and vibrancy as it did before.
At BeYOUtiful Anti-Aging Studio we are committed to supporting your skin’s health by helping you take care of YOU. Often this means helping you find the right skincare routine to support your needs. But sometimes, your skin needs more help than a healthy lifestyle by itself can provide. That’s where innovative solutions such as IPL come in.
IPL is a treatment at our studio that can help reduce the signs of aging on your skin, treat acne breakouts, even out the texture and color of your skin, and more. We would love to help you learn more about this non-invasive, virtually painless treatment.
What Is IPL?
IPL, also known as Intense Pulsed Light is a technology that targets concerns such as skin discoloration and acne without any surgery or invasive procedures. IPL treatments, or photo-facials, involve the use of a device that sends out different wavelengths of light. This light targets and destroys brown and red discoloration. The light can also help to stimulate collagen production which helps tighten the skin and reduce lines and wrinkles.
IPL treatments can be customizable to suit your skin tone. Depending on how light or dark your skin is, different settings can be used to change the wavelengths of the light and more precisely target the brown or red areas on your skin. During the treatment, we will place the handheld device on your skin and deliver the pulsed light working by sections across the area. The treatment can be used on most locations of the body, but the most common are the face, neck, and décolleté.
What Do IPL Photo-Facials Treat?
Brown Spot Treatmen
One of the most common uses of IPL devices is as a skin rejuvenation or photofacial tool. Photorejuvenation is the process of breaking down discoloration in the skin to make it smoother and younger-looking. If you have brown spots or redness on your skin, the light wavelengths will specifically target these areas and draw them to the surface.
Acne can be an extremely frustrating condition for people of all ages. And while there is no cure for acne, it can be effectively managed through IPL treatments. The Venus Versa device has blue light which helps to destroy the bacteria that can cause acne. It also features red light which helps soothe inflammation and heal acne-prone skin after a breakout. IPL technology can also even out skin color, making acne scarring much less noticeable.
Visible Vein Treatment
If you have veins that are showing up underneath the skin, IPL is a good option for removing them. The light heats the walls of the blood vessels in the targeted veins. After several treatments, the veins break down and are absorbed by the body.
Sun Damage Treatment
If you spend a lot of time in the sun, sun damage can occur even if you try to protect your skin with sunscreen. IPL reduces the effects of sun damage by eliminating the damaged skin cells. After treatment, you may notice sun-damaged spots become darker which is the melanin being drawn to the surface. Eventually, the dark spots will break apart and flake off, revealing smoother and more even skin underneath.
The energy used during IPL treatments can help to stimulate collagen production in the skin. When this happens, your skin gains structure and becomes more firm. Many of our patients experience softening of their fine lines and wrinkles after several IPL treatments.
Why We Use Venus Versa™ With SmartPulse™ Technology
The Venus Versa machine is our device of choice because it is both highly effective and more comfortable for our patients. The Venus Versa device utilizes SmartPulse technology which delivers the light deeper into the skin while also protecting the skin from damage. There are several reasons why we have chosen this machine for our skin rejuvenation treatments.
The Venus Versa has unique cooling technology that helps keep you more comfortable. The cooling system measures the temperature of the applicator 1,000 times per second and provides real-time cooling to make the treatment faster and safer.
The large treatment applicator and the real-time cooling of the Venus Versa work together to make the IPL treatment faster. This minimizes the time you have to sit in the treatment chair, so the discomfort of the treatment is reduced.
The Venus Versa delivers high levels of stable energy that is targeted for efficacy. Because of the comfort of the device, it can deliver more energy without sacrificing patient experience.
We love Venus Versa because it is a customizable device that can be used for many different skin conditions, locations on the body, and skin types. We have many different options within the machine that can be adjusted for a more efficient treatment.
