Repair Sun-Damaged Skin With IPL
Summer means getting away to enjoy the lovely outdoors + soaking up the sun! All the fun + summer humidity can easily make us forget about skincare. But there are consequences. Even if you bathed in sunscreen, chances are you’ve picked up some incidental UV exposure, which can lead to skin damage. Common signs of sun damage are:
- Fine lines caused by skin dehydration.
- Loss of skin tone, from reduced or compromised collagen production.
- Sun-spots caused by excessive UV exposure.
- Redness from dilated capillaries resulting from heat, sun burn, or irritation from overexposure.
- Hyperpigmentation and uneven skin tone due to chronic redness caused by excessive exposure.
- - Enlarged pores creating the appearance of an orange peel texture from loss of skin tone.
As summer fades, the cool + dehydrating energy of Autumn can expose these signs. This calls for some well-timed skin healing to reduce the above symptoms. Depending on the extent of skin damage, a reparative skincare routine may need the assistance of professional facial treatments to deliver the expected results in the desired time frame. An excellent option is professional exfoliation with Microdermabrasion or Peels. At Pure + Simple, we offer some great natural and safe options, like Sea Salt Microdermabrasion and AFA Peels. But the most effective way to attain substantial results in a comparatively shorter time is Intense Pulse Light (IPL) treatment.
IPL is a highly versatile, safe, and effective Light Treatment, which involves light pulses penetrating deep into the skin to stimulate collagen production. This results in improvement of the appearance of our skin by reducing Redness, Acne, Rosacea, Enlarged Pores, and Hyperpigmentation.
It was first introduced to dermatology twenty years ago in Europe, and has since been popular for results with reversing skin aging. Backed up with data and studies from over the last 20 years, the latest technology can drastically improve your skin condition in only 3-6 treatments.
A Pure + Simple IPL treatment includes the use of intense light pulses, which penetrate deep into the skin. This causes collagen and blood vessels below the epidermis to constrict, reducing redness and age lines. This treatment produces excellent long-term results, which reduces the appearance of facial lines, redness from broken capillaries, skin pigmentation, acne and scarring.
The number of treatments needed to attain the desired results depends on the IPL machine and the skill of the technician. With the latest IPL technology, results are visible after the first session and drastic improvements can be seen after only 3-6 treatments.
Treatments can be clinical in nature but the best results are achieved when combined with a professional facial with cooling collagen masks and a relaxing massage.
IPL one of the most popular high-tech treatments at Pure + simple. It creates clients that are happy with their results, and happy with their skin. They love the ease, precision, and long-term benefits of this treatment, and nothing makes us happier!
