Living with acne can feel like a major struggle at times. Breakouts that you just can’t hide, red splotches, swelling, tenderness, and eventually scars take away from a person’s self-confidence and often cause them to be withdrawn and to hide in the background. It’s time to stop hiding and start living life to the fullest by taking advantage of some of the best laser treatments for acne and acne scarring. Take charge of your self-confidence and self-esteem by exploring these two popular options, the IPL Photofacial, and the Halo Treatment.
The IPL Photofacial
The IPL Photofacial, also known as IPL Photorejuvenation is an Intense Pulsed Light treatment that is used to create a smoother and more even skin tone. The IPL treatment can help each of the following:
- Sun damage
- Age spots and sun-induced freckles
- Liver spots and other benign brown pigments
- Spider veins (broken capillaries)
- Enlarged pores
How Does the IPL Photofacial Work?
A broad spectrum of light is transmitted through a small handpiece that is placed over the skin. The light penetrates the tissue and is absorbed by blood (when treating vascular lesions) or absorbed by melanin when treating pigmented lesions. The body’s own natural processes then remove the injured tissue from the skin leaving younger and smoother looking skin in its place.
During the treatment, a numbing cream is put on your skin because of the high level of heat that is used and because the treatment can feel like the sting of an elastic band snap. A cooling gel will also be used to counteract the heating sensation that you will experience during the treatment.
An IPL treatment averages 30 minutes per session. Typically, patients need anywhere from 3-5 treatments to achieve their desired results. These treatments are spaced 4 weeks apart. There is no downtime with the IPL Photofacial treatment. Patients may feel like they have sunburn, but this feeling subsides within a few hours. Your technician may ask you to avoid hot water and sun exposure for 2 days and following that to always use sunscreen when enjoying the outdoors. Blemishes that you have on your face at the time of treatment may darken for up to two weeks while your body works to shed this damaged tissue naturally. Eventually, the scars and blemishes will fade away.
IPL Photofacial & Halo Laser Consultations Available
Am I A Candidate For an IPL Photofacial?
Candidates for the IPL Photofacial include people who have scarring, sun damage, age spots, liver spots, spider veins, or larger pores. The medical staff at Juvanew Medspa will ultimately decide whether or not this treatment is best for you. They will inquire about your medical history and your tendency for scarring. In addition to this general health information, the technician will evaluate your skin coloring because the IPL photofacial is not always as effective on tanned or darker skin tones.
The Halo Laser Treatment
The Halo Laser is a laser treatment that combines both ablative and non-ablative treatments to produce the best possible complexion. This treatment helps with problems such as sun damage, scars, wrinkles, fine lines, enlarged pores, and uneven skin tone. This is done by delivering laser energy through the skin. This energy generates heat deep within the skin cells and triggers the body to begin healing by gently exfoliating the skin and stimulating the production of collagen.
How Does The Halo Treatment Work?
The Halo laser treatment uses ablative wavelengths to exfoliate the surface of the skin while a non-ablative wavelength penetrates the dermis in order to stimulate the production of collagen, which is responsible for fuller, smoother, younger looking skin. The use of two wavelengths is what sets the Halo treatment apart from other laser treatments.
The treatment will take about an hour to perform and many patients need 1 to 3 treatments to achieve the desired results. You will begin to see results in a week and the final results can usually be seen in about three weeks. There is no downtime with the Halo Laser treatment, but you may have swelling or redness which can be minimized with the help of the Juvanew Medspa team.
Am I A Candidate For The Halo Laser Treatment?
If you want to improve the appearance of skin on the face and neck, reverse sun damage from too many hours in the sun, improve acne scarring, and smooth out lines and wrinkles, then you are a candidate for the Halo Laser Treatment. The trained staff at Juvanew Medspa will ultimately decide whether or not this treatment is best for you during an office consultation. They will customize a treatment plan for your individual needs and be able to answer any questions you have.
