As we go throughout our lives, our skin can become damaged and spotted by the sun. Getting older and not putting in the work to protect skin from damaging rays can cause brown and red spots to appear on the skin, making it look much older than it might actually be. While natural signs of aging are things we shouldn’t be embarrassed about or try to hide, sometimes it seems that they come around just a little too soon. That’s why many people are turning to specific procedures to make their skin more radiant and youthful-looking. In Las Vegas, for instance, many people have sought out Intense Pulse Light therapy (IPL), also known as fotofacial therapy, to improve their skin’s brown and red spots, as well as rosacea, broken capillaries or other conditions. What is often the result is clearer and more radiant-looking skin.
During this non-invasive procedure, a tool is used to create pulses of light, which are then gradually moved over the targeted areas. Used typically on both the face and chest, the light pulses work to reduce any discoloration in just minutes. Though the speed of the treatment is one of the main reasons why people seek out fotofacial therapy, the other is that it comes with little to no discomfort. In fact, most patients who go through the procedure can resume their normal daily activities almost immediately.
Along with aging and sun exposure, other lifestyle, environmental and heredity conditions can lead to signs of skin aging. The ease and safety of this procedure — as well as the incredible lack of downtime for recovery — is why it’s an ideal solution for almost every patient in Las Vegas, especially those who live a very active life. The results, after a few days, can be dramatic, and the procedure has been used to treat age spots, freckles, and melasma. A series of treatments is usually recommended to achieve maximum and consistent results when it comes to maintaining your skin’s youthful appearance.
