Summer is over and it’s time to fall in love with your skin by erasing the sun damage you picked up basking by the beach these past few months. Did you know that 90% of signs of aging are caused by sun exposure? And that the sunspots on your face are actually the skin condition that may be aging you the most? That’s right, sun damage ages us even more than wrinkles.
Phew, temperatures may be dropping, but these facts probably have you sweating, right? Not to worry––the IPL treatment has you covered!
Target the sunspots on your face and so much more with the IPL treatment
The ‘IPL’ in IPL treatment stands for ‘Intense Pulse Light.’ This procedure delivers controlled laser energy into the deeper skin layer where the inevitable signs of aging begin. IPL treatments administer broad-spectrum pulses of light that stimulate collagen production to remove signs of aging. Because IPL employs a broad spectrum of light, it is able to treat multiple conditions on the face at a time, such as sunspots, freckles, red vessels, brown spots, fine lines and wrinkles, and even acne-causing bacteria.
IPL treatments work by sending light into the skin. The light is transformed into heat and is then absorbed, creating tiny, controlled wounds in the skin’s tissue. This prompts the skin to heal itself by creating new cells, elastin, and healthy collagen, which all improve the skin’s appearance. By enhancing the collagen in your skin through the IPL treatment, you can reduce fine lines and wrinkles in addition to sun damage, and give your skin a healthy, radiant, and homogeneous appearance.
Not all IPL technology is created equal
IPL treatments target pigmentation to lighten the skin, and have been scientifically proven to erase approximately ten years worth of sun damage! IPL is one of the Bijou Skin Health Clinic’s most popular treatments because of the instant rejuvenation it provides. IPL treatments give skin a creamier appearance and make it more flawless and youthful-looking by correcting the red and brown discolouration that can have an aging effect.
Reverse the aging process and get your skin’s DNA functioning properly
You’ll definitely leave your IPL treatment with glowing, younger-looking skin, but this procedure is about much more than just looking beautiful. Did you know that by the time we reach the age of thirty, 50% of our DNA is not expressing correctly? This essentially means that our DNA is not functioning as it should, and is not doing what it is meant to do. This is where skin disease starts. By the time we reach the age of fifty, 75% of our DNA is not expressing correctly. But don’t despair! The IPL treatment helps skin to function in a youthful manner and do what it’s meant to do: protect you.
IPL Photorejuvenation uses wavelengths of light in the 500 (550-590) range, meaning it is powerful enough to correct the way that our DNA expresses and functions. By consistently doing IPL treatments a few times a year, we can get cells to express as they are meant to. Regular IPL treatments are a key part of not only inhibiting the aging of our cells but also of causing our DNA to revert back to its original, healthy, functioning state.
When it comes to your skin and your skin’s health, you can never be too careful about what products and treatments you introduce. As IPL treatments grow in popularity and practice, it’s essential to ensure that you are receiving the best possible care from experts using the best technology on the market. While a good quality IPL treatment can greatly improve your skin’s appearance and health, a poor quality IPL treatment can at best be ineffective, and at worst be detrimental and cause issues such as hyperpigmentation and permanent scarring.
At Bijou Skin Health Clinic, we use only medical grade technology operated by highly trained technicians. Bijou’s choice of IPL system is the Icon system from Cynosure medical, which is a superior and industry-leading IPL system. It is the only system that has the Skintel Melanin Reader, an FDA approved, a revolutionary device that is able to measure the density of melanin content in the skin before treatment which results in safer treatments with excellent results.
Who doesn’t want to reverse the aging process?
The IPL treatment is for anyone interested in taking a proactive and effective approach to both preventing and reversing the signs of aging to achieve skin that is beautiful and healthy. With the IPL treatment, you can turn back the clock on a decade’s worth of sun damage and ensure that your skin is functioning as it should. Your tan is fading, but there’s no better time than the present to make sure that the skin underneath that bronzed complexion is looking and feeling its best!
