IPL Chicago | Photofacial Chicago
Have you started to notice that your skin doesn’t look as fresh and tight and healthy as it once did? Have you started to notice the development of fine lines around your eyes, nose, and mouth? If so, you might be a candidate for photorejuvenation, also referred to as a photofacial in our Chicago office.
How does photorejuvenation work?
As we age, our body produces less collagen and elastin, the substances that help to keep skin looking healthy and fresh. Photorejuvenation Chicago skin therapy uses pulses of intense light to help spur the body’s creation of collagen and elastin. This means that a Chicago photofacial will help your body create its own methods of making you look younger.
What are the benefits of photorejuvenation over other facial rejuvenation techniques?
Photo rejuvenation (IPL Chicago) is much more gentle than most laser treatments because laser treatments destroy skin cells with heat. A photofacial does not damage skin. Therefore, there is no downtime with photo rejuvenation like there is with laser treatments.
Who are the best candidates for a photofacial / IPL treatment?
A photofacial Chicago works best for patients who are looking for a decrease in skin redness, a more even skin tone, and reduced pore size. It can also help reduce some wrinkles and fine lines.
How many treatments of IPL will I need?
The number of treatments your skin will require will depend on the specificities of your skin. Many of our patients see an improvement after only one treatment. Since benefits of IPL / photorejuvenation develop over time, it may take a few weeks after your initial treatment to realize optimal results. Those results may last a few months to a year. Some of our patients opt for regularly schedule photofacials in order to maintain their appearances.
