Park City, UT (PRWEB) January 20, 2012
Resolutions come in all shapes, sizes and – colors? Banishing brown spots and red blotches through photo facial IPL therapy have made people’s New Year’s to-do lists.
The American Society of Plastic Surgeons reports that, in 2010 alone, U.S. consumers spent more than $216 Million pursuing Intense Pulsed Light therapy. IPL therapy is a minimally-invasive procedure that literally lifts brown spots, age spots, acne scars and redness (or Rosacea) from across the face, neck and chest.
“The buzz around IPL has definitely increased,” says Shawn Miele for FaceForum.com. “People with skin imperfections get great results with IPL photofacial treatment. This isn’t a vanity issue, either. Some have felt stigmatized or self-conscious for years.”
In honor of the New Year and consumers’ interest in the latest “new you” techniques, FaceForum.com has added an IPL overview to its website.
“IPL therapy is so popular because its results are immediate,” adds Miele. “That’s pretty impressive for a relatively painless, 30-minute, lunch-break procedure.”
“They’re also long-lasting and multi-dimensional. Patients routinely get 2-for-1 benefits, since both light and heat are used in the IPL process. That doesn’t only lift pigment from the skin. It also jump starts collagen production and boosts new cell growth to deliver a better complexion overall.”
“There’s not even any down time involved. Each click with an IPL wand lifts a little more pigment. Most patients we’ve talked with liken it to being lightly snapped with a rubber band and love being able to jump back into their normal routines right away.”
IPL therapy treats skin imperfections which include:
・ Sun Damage
・ Redness or Rosacea
・ Unwanted Hair Growth
・ Age Spots or Brown Spots
・ Under-Eye Bags & Premature Wrinkles
・ Enlarged Pores, Acne Scarring or Other Scarring
