Did you know that age spots or sun damage don’t have to be the fixtures of your skin? Most patients with these problems prefer to explore their non-surgical options. Sadly, this usually results in trying a variety of creams, lotions, and ointments that may have only a certain degree of success—and only while the product is continually applied. What these individuals don’t know is that there are non-surgical, non-invasive laser skin treatments that are not only highly effective for sun damage and age spots, but for a variety of other skin conditions as well.
Additionally, laser treatments will not only resolve the appearance of age spots and sun damage, but also promote more youthful, smooth, and vibrant skin features. If skin rejuvenation of this nature sounds appealing to you, please read on to learn more about one of the most common and popular types of laser skin treatment: IPL (intense pulsated light) laser treatments.
How Can an IPL Laser Skin Treatment Reduce Sun Damage and Age Spots?
IPL laser skin treatments work by employing a high-powered beam of light that penetrates the upper layers of the skin. This stimulates the lower layer of skin to produce more collagen and other elements that will improve the overall tone, texture, and youthfulness of the skin. If you have sun damage or age spots, this means that your skin’s pigmentation will achieve a more cohesive look. Once uniformity has been achieved, the “sun spots,” age spots, and other forms of skin damage will be removed.
How Else Can IPL Laser Treatments Help Rejuvenate My Skin?
IPL laser treatments are a remarkably versatile skin treatment technology in the hands of a well-trained, certified medical practitioner. These kinds of treatments can resolve many other skin problems aside from sun damage and age spots, including acne, acne scarring, and rosacea. As all of these problems generally take place on the upper layers of skin, where the IPL laser is targeted, they can usually be substantially reduced or removed entirely.
What is IPL-AFT Laser Skin Treatment?
IPL-AFT (advanced fluorescence technology) laser skin treatments can be thought of as the next generation of IPL laser treatments. The laser employs multiple wavelengths, not just one, and equally distributes them across the skin. This results in a more powerful treatment that is equally—if not more—safe and effective than traditional IPL treatments. Furthermore, patients can expect to see results after a single session, rather than the 5 or 6 that are typically needed with traditional IPL laser skin treatments.
