What is IPL?
If you're bothered by the appearance of your skin due to dark spots or sun damage, RareV can perform a digital skin analysis at our Las Vegas, NV office to see if you qualify for IPL (intense pulsed light) therapy. An IPL photofacial is a treatment that rejuvenates the skin for adults with hyperpigmentation issues on their neck and face. A photofacial is a noninvasive procedure that can be highly effective and produce smooth, radiant outcomes. Our team of highly skilled aesthetic specialists utilizes a technology that radiates intense wavelengths of light energy to raise the temperature of the skin cells, promoting the natural healing process and increasing collagen production. As the added nutrients take effect, you should begin to see a healthier layer with an improved tone and fewer dark spots and irregularities.
"I was having medical problems way back in December 2019. I called looking for a primary doctor. The receptionist was very compassionate about the call and invited me to come in that day if I could get theier by 4:00 pm. Listen people that doctors visit was the best doctors visit in my life. I was diagnosed and sent for examination by a specialist. They really care about me and do a though job. I have a doctor's office who I can trust to get it right. They are top shelf. I rate the doctors triplle A in service, coutesy and price. Sincerely Gilbert Earl Wainwright. Founder/CEO. One love enterprises."- G.W. / Healthgrades / May 25, 2020
"I had a skin consultation with Jamie the other day, and it was very informative. She was able to break down all of the metrics from the machine and communicate it to me in a way I could understand. As well as recommended multiple treatment options going forward. 10/10."- C.H. / Facebook / Nov 13, 2020
"I just completed my third micro needling today with Jamie. Now after the first treatment I saw very little difference .I went in with high expectations after reviewing multiple videos on line of before and after. However on the second and third session I saw a complete difference in my skin. Not only was i pleased with the results but also the amazing customer service that Jamie provided . She walked me through every step and gave me great advice for the recovery process. I will definitely be back and recommend this place to anyone!"- K.H. / Yelp / Jul 15, 2021
What are the benefits of IPL?
With topical treatments alone, hyperpigmentation issues like sun damage and age spots can be difficult to manage. IPL photofacials offer a more comprehensive solution by targeting the deeper layers of skin, resulting in a more even skin tone. Patients at RareV appreciate IPL for the following reasons:
- Safe treatment: IPL is considered low-risk because it uses noninvasive light energy rather than incisions or injections.
- Fast results: A typical IPL session takes about 30 minutes, making it a convenient option for many busy patients.
- Long-lasting results: IPL offers long-lasting outcomes, with many patients noticing an improvement in their skin tone even months after treatment.
WHO CAN GET IPL?
A photofacial reaches the deeper layers of your skin to correct many complexion concerns (especially brown lesions and sun spots) with little or no needed recovery period afterward. The best candidates for IPL treatments at RareV could have a combination of problems with their skin, including sun damage, rosacea, brown spots (hyperpigmentation), rough texture, visible pores, redness, freckles, melasma, sun and age spots, or spider veins. A member of our team will examine your complexion and perform a skin analysis using the Image Pro 3D® to determine if you are a candidate for IPL during your initial consultation.
How IS IT DONE?
A photofacial at our Las Vegas, NV office is completed in about 20 – 30 minutes in one of our private treatment rooms. To start the procedure, your technician will clean and dry your skin before covering your eyes with goggles. The IPL photofacial is administered using a handheld wand that will pass over the skin while emitting pulses of light energy. While most patients will have some discomfort throughout the IPL photofacial, it is usually bearable for the short treatment time.
RESULTS AFTER IPL
There is no recovery period needed after an IPL treatment, but you may notice that your complexion is a little swollen and pink. This will subside naturally in several hours and can be masked with cosmetics. Our team at RareV advises patients to use a cream on the skin's surface to minimize any irritation and speed healing. It also helps to take an over-the-counter anti-inflammatory medication to ease swelling. Over the course of 2 – 5 days, the irregularities under the skin will rise to the surface skin layers and then start to flake away. It is necessary to keep your skin protected with sunscreen at all times after an IPL photofacial treatment and to not pick at the flaking skin. While you will notice some impressive improvements after your first treatment, your complexion will achieve its best results after several IPL sessions. We typically suggest that patients receive 3 – 6 sessions done about a month apart at our office for comprehensive outcomes.
How much does IPL cost?
Your complexion issues are unique, so the cost of IPL treatments will depend on your concerns. RareV offers specials on treatments like IPL often and we accept most payment methods. During your initial consultation, your technician can help estimate costs and determine how many sessions are needed to fit your needs and goals.
How quick are the results from IPL?
Some results can be seen following your session, but optimal results are visible a month after your last treatment. It is normal for you to respond differently to every treatment session. You should notice gradual improvements of blotchiness, redness, and spots (age, brown, and sun).
What are the possible side effects of IPL?
Most patients experience mild side effects like temporary swelling, redness, bruising, blisters, or crusting. This should subside in a few days. Your skin will be sun sensitive and you should keep in mind that damaging UV rays will negatively affect your results. We also recommend using sunscreen to prevent problems like spots and redness.
Do I need to prep for IPL?
Before getting IPL, patients are usually asked to skip self-tanners and excessive sun for at least 2 – 4 weeks before their procedure. You might need to stop using certain medications and topical creams, like Retin-A a few days before each appointment, and we may recommend taking pain relievers for one week before the appointment to decrease your risk of bruising. You should also protect the treated areas with sunscreen since your skin will be extra sensitive.
Why should I get multiple IPL sessions?
Multiple IPL sessions are better to produce gradual, natural-looking improvements to the appearance of your skin. Every session will fade surface irregularities and spots. A series of treatments also allow for longer-lasting results.
REVERSE THE EFFECTS OF SUN DAMAGE
You probably didn't worry much about your complexion when you had clear, youthful skin. However, when sun damage and age spots start to appear, you may find yourself suddenly interested in procedures to improve and rejuvenate your skin. We invite you to learn more about IPL photofacial treatments by contacting our Las Vegas, NV office and scheduling a skin assessment with a member of our team. With IPL photofacial treatments at RareV, we can target the deeper layers of damaged skin to help bring back a radiant glow and a smooth complexion.
