What is IPL?
IPL stands for Intense Pulsed Light Therapy. This procedure, also sometimes referred to as a photofacial, harnesses the power of lasers to deeply penetrate the skin to address pigmentation issues and acne. An IPL photofacial utilizes multiple wavelengths of light to precisely target sun damage, hyperpigmentation, age spots, acne, broken blood vessels, and rosacea. IPL treatments require virtually no recovery time, though some minor redness or flaking may occur following your session. The lasers may induce a slight stinging sensation in your skin as it is being treated, however a topical numbing cream may be used to reduce your discomfort. The number of photofacials you will require to address your skin concerns will vary depending on the severity of your condition and your overall skin tone.
What are chemical peels?
Chemical peels use alpha hydroxy acids (AHA) or beta hydroxy acids (BHA) to address skin’s overall appearance. Some common chemical peels will use glycolic acid, lactic acid, or salicylic acid to exfoliate away the top layers of skin, improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, address pigmentation and scarring, or cleanse deep down into pores to target acne bacteria. Chemical peels can be tailored to your needs by adjusting the concentration, allowing for everything from a superficial exfoliation to a deep peel. Following a chemical peel, you may experience sunburn-like side effects and peeling of the skin as it is exfoliated away. After a chemical peel, you will need to avoid activities that induce heavy sweating for a few days and be diligent about moisturizing and using SPF while avoiding active ingredients in your skincare as your facial skin repairs itself.
How are chemical peels and IPL used in tandem?
By developing an aesthetic treatment plan that combines IPL and chemical peels, you can maximize the benefits you will enjoy from both treatments. IPL photofacials can be used approximately 4 weeks after a chemical peel to bolster the treatment of hyperpigmentation concerns and 4-6 weeks before or after a chemical peel to improve anti-aging benefits. By combining these two powerful treatments into one comprehensive plan, we can help our patients achieve greater improvement of fine lines, reduction in pigmentation and scarring, and help address current breakouts and prevent future ones. During your personalized consultation, your aesthetician will discuss your exact needs and design a treatment plan that will target your skin concerns. By merging specific ingredients and targeted laser therapy into a combined therapeutic plan, we are able to greatly improve our patients’ treatment outcomes without invasive procedures.
