How Soon After IPL Treatment Will Dark Spots Fade?

Featured Image

Your skin is an amazingly advanced organ that protects you every day and helps to keep you healthy. It also has an excellent regenerative ability to renew itself. Yet, the aging process produces various blemishes that may stick around despite our best efforts to exfoliate, scrub, and moisturize.

Among the most frustrating are dark spots or areas of hyperpigmentation. As these pigments lodge themselves firmly and stubbornly between the layers of the skin, they produce an unaesthetic annoyance that never seems to disappear. Luckily, an IPL photofacial treatment can remove the dreaded dark spots. So, if you're suffering from these or other blemishes, contact us at Evolve Med Spa in Dallas, TX to set up a consultation with our board-certified physician Dr. Tricia Shimer.

An IPL photofacial treatment can give you complexion-transforming improvements

IPL stands for intense pulsed light, the mode of its action. The future of cosmetic techniques is less and less reliant on surgical invasiveness. Instead, aesthetic tech is evolving toward less involved but more effective methods, such as those utilizing the inherent healing power of light. These pulses of light profoundly penetrate the uppermost layer of your skin to trigger your body's natural healing. New cells are produced, while the old, damaged ones are replaced, and dark spots and other blemishes fade away.

Another great advantage is that this procedure does not require much time, either during or after treatment. The IPL photofacial will be over before you know it, as it only takes about 20 – 30 minutes. Unlike other youth-restoring options, it's very straightforward. After cleaning your face and applying a shield to guard your eyes, Dr. Shimer passes a handheld device over your skin. This device releases light energy, which reaches deep into the various layers of tissue to kick-start a comprehensive remodeling process. Due to the resultant regeneration of cells and collagen stimulation, your complexion will revitalize itself at the deepest levels and from the inside out.

How soon after your IPL photofacial treatment can you expect to enjoy clearer, more radiant skin?

After the procedure in Dallas, TX, your skin will probably be a bit pink and swollen, but these are minor effects – especially when compared to other, more invasive treatments that require an extended, painful recuperation. You may also experience some skin flaking, though you mustn't pick at it. Doing so could not only damage your tissues; it will undo some of the results of your treatment.

In fact, it's over the few days following your procedure that you'll begin to see results – even a single session is enough to produce improvement. And within 2 – 5 days after your IPL photofacial, the dark spots and other bits of hyperpigmentation will begin to rise to the surface of the skin. Then, over the following couple of weeks or so, the blemishes that have bugged you will be naturally exfoliated from the skin's surface. Your best results, and optimal outcome, should be apparent after around a month following your final IPL session.
