Light Laser Treatment
therapy. . . OUCH!
you ever had a rubber band snapped repeatedly all over your face? OUCH!
The very first thing you need to know about an IPL therapy treatment it
that it can HURT!
It is highly recommended that you use the numbing cream prior to any
ILP therapy or ~ WARNING
each zap is going to hurt.
So what is an IPL therapy "intensive pulse light"
A small rectangular shaped wand, rather like an
ingenious flashlight with a small vacuum cleaner type hose attached to
a big huge machine.
The machine hums merrily in the back ground while the
wand zaps the
targeted area of the skin.
You get to wear little dark opaque goggles to protect your eyes before
a nice thick layer of cold gel is applied to the skin as protection
prior to any zapping.
The zapping is immediately followed by a bright flash of light and a
snapping sensation to the skin.
Depending on your tolerance to pain and
if you decided to used the numbing cream, the snapping can feel like a
big rubber band stretched to its limit then released against your skin.
. . YEOW!
If your skin has been numbed, the zap feels like a teeny little flick
of a finger. The discomfort is tolerable, but trust me on this one,
numbing cream is the way to go. Why be uncomfortable?
Do IPL treatments really work?
For photorejuvenation, IPL therapy is used to correct damaged areas of
the skin as a result of hyperpigmentation.
is extremely effective in getting rid of age spots as well
as red, splotchy skin, even rosacea.
After an IPL therapy treatment, your face might be a little swollen in
spots and you will most likely notice some discoloration ranging from
minor redness to small brownish splotches.
Rather than be horrified, rejoice!
That is evidence that the treatment is working effectively. You will
notice that the areas on your skin that discolor the most are the areas
where you will see the most improvement once the discoloration fades in
a week or so.
The discoloration can be significant enough that if you look at your
skin in a magnifying mirror, it will appear like your face was
splattered with tiny little flecks of mud.
This is an excellent sign that all those age spots and damaged areas of
your skin will disappear when the skin recovers from the treatment.
