Light energy absorption is rapidly becoming a preferred treatment for wrinkled, discolored skin. A series of intense pulsed light (IPL) treatments can correct a variety of problems, the most important being the appearance of the skin surface. IPL can help with wrinkle reduction as well as a variety of minor facial concerns. At Angelic Lift, we are pleased to provide this non-surgical facelift to our patients and encourage you to learn more about it.
This is a no-cut, non-surgical alternative to traditional skin ablation procedures. We highly recommend IPL to our clients who bring us concerns about age-related skin problems as well as concerns about wrinkled facial skin.
How the Treatment Works
It’s all about light frequencies. Light is made up of photons, and when observed as waves, an individual photon waves in a specific frequency. These frequencies can be mixed and matched. Sunlight, for example, is a mix of quite a few frequencies. A laser, on the other hand, emits monochromatic light, or in other words, a single wavelength and frequency.
An IPL device is calibrated to emit a carefully chosen mix of wavelengths. This mix results in an intense energy burst that penetrates right through the epidermal layer without damaging it. Instead, the energy is absorbed deeper down in the dermis, and this is where most subsurface areas of hyperpigmentation exist. This is also where capillaries lie, and it’s also where most of the collagen in the skin is produced.
When these tissues absorb the light energy, they heat up and are slightly damaged. The body responds by creating replacement tissue at a rapid pace. Some of this replacement tissue will eventually move upward and become the new epidermal layer, and it will be smoother and more youthful-appearing than the tissue it replaced.
What Else Does IPL Treat?
The device can be calibrated to emit a more focused, pixelated beam of energy that works to treat such concerns as acne scarring, bags under the eyes, fine lines, crow’s feet, wrinkles, and jowls.
Consultation and Treatment
During a consultation, we examine the client’s facial features closely and recommend a specific treatment series. Ideal candidates for this non-surgical facelift will harbor realistic expectations about this procedure in terms of what it can treat.
