While we love how sunshine makes us feel, it can leave some damaging effects on our skin. Years of sun exposure can cause brown spots, broken blood vessels, blotchy hyperpigmentation and redness, not to mention skin cancers. One of our favorite treatments to dramatically and quickly reduce discoloration from sun damage and give a more youthful appearance, is IPL (Intense Pulsed Light or Photofacial). IPL is a quick in-office procedure that does not require any downtime. Typically, 2-3 treatments 4 to 6 weeks apart are necessary to achieve desired results, then many patients choose to maintain these results by scheduling follow-up treatments yearly. IPL can be performed on the face, neck, chest, arms, back of hands, almost on any sun exposed area of the body. To learn more about IPL, and schedule an appointment to see if IPL is right for you.
One of the most important things you can do to protect your skin and prevent sun damage and skin cancers is to use a broad-spectrum sunscreen daily. This is especially important after having any skin procedures, such as IPL.
