Medical Skin Care Offers IPL Treatments

May 30, 2008
Removing unsightly skin marks, such as scars, freckles, sun spots, age spots, and other blemishes is reaching a new level of success in the skin care world. There are new and minimally invasive treatment options which allow for the removal of unwanted marks without having to undergo surgeries or repeatedly use creams

One such treatment option is ipl or intense pulsed light foto facial. This treatment involves the use of intense light to remove marks on the skin and has seen quite an impressive success rate. A trained dermatologist uses the light anywhere that marks are to be removed and usually more than one treatment is necessary to see the desired results. Many find that four to six treatments works well and that darks marks are either completely gone or dramatically reduced. It is always a good idea to take good care of the skin post treatment. Using aloe vera gel and being gentle with it is always a good idea. Furthermore, preventing long exposure to the sun is a good way to prevent any recurrence. The skin can develop spots again in time if exposure to the sun is excessive.

Skin treatments such as ipl can be used for a number of different skin concerns, such as spider veins in the face, chest, or upper torso. Generally, the treatment is used to treat facial skin but the future may hold more expansive treatment options. The skin usually begins to feel tighter, looks less red, and has fewer imperfections than before the treatment began. Since ipl treats the epidermis and the dermis layers of skin, the treatments reach deep into the skin and are not simply for the superficial areas of the skin. It is important to be fully aware of any benefits and risks that are associated with any skin care treatment and to seek the advice and care of a trusted and experienced dermatologist. This will help to ensure satisfaction with any treatment that you decide is right for your skin. With ipl, it is possible to receive quality and lasting effects to help alter any undesirable skin disorders or blemishes. It is of course important to understand that most ipl treatments will not be covered by a health insurance provider since they are considered a cosmetic procedure. The cost of each individual treatment varies and can run $300-$700 depending on the treatment area's size. Discussing this with a dermatologist prior to the start of treatments is a good way to ensure the success of the treatment as well as its affordability.

The most positive aspect of fotofacial treatments are their being minimally invasive and truly effective, as well as their ability to treat various types of skin complaints. Discussing the treatment with a dermatologist is a good idea, as is discussing what specific skin complaints are in question and how many treatments may be necessary to remove them. Furthermore, it is always a good idea to explore other options so that you are sure of which skin care option is best for you.
