Unlocking Radiant Skin: The Power of IPL Treatments at DCCM™
Sunspots, age spots, hyperpigmentation – these common skin issues can be a daily struggle to conceal with makeup. But what if you could reduce their appearance or even eliminate them altogether, revealing a more youthful, glowing complexion? At DCCM™, we offer a powerful solution – Intense Pulsed Light Therapy (IPL), also known as photorejuvenation or a photofacial.
Unlike conventional lasers, IPL is a non-coherent intense pulse of light that uses lower energy to rejuvenate the skin, making it an ideal treatment for eradicating sunspots and rectifying sun damage. We proudly offer two types of IPL treatments: the Nordlys by Candela and the Elos Plus IPL by our trusted laser device company, Candela.
**What Happens During an IPL Treatment?**
1. The targeted tissue absorbs the intense pulsed light, which then converts to heat.
2. This heat raises the targeted tissue’s temperature, causing controlled damage while sparing the surrounding tissue.
**Who Can Benefit from IPL?**
Ideal candidates for IPL are those struggling with:
1. Solar lentigines (sunspots, age spots, or liver spots)
6. Vascular changes
**Benefits of IPL**
With regular IPL treatments, you can enjoy:
1. Glowing, smooth skin
2. A more youthful appearance
3. Reduced appearance of sunspots and uneven pigmentation
4. Decreased flushing and rosacea
5. More even skin tone
6. Minimized pore size
**What to Expect After an IPL Session**
The procedure is minimally uncomfortable, with virtually no downtime or recovery needed. Post-treatment, you may experience temporary redness, swelling, or a sunburn-like sensation. The treated brown spots will darken and eventually shed off, while capillaries may temporarily become more prominent before they settle. In rare cases (about 1%), a patient may blister, but with proper at-home care, there is no long-term damage.
We typically recommend a series of 4-6 IPL treatments, depending on the specific condition and its severity. Results from IPL are long-lasting, and maintenance treatments can help preserve your revitalized complexion.
**Limitations and Contraindications**
It’s important to note that IPL does not help with loose, baggy, or crepey skin, puffiness around the eyes, skin cancer, bumpy moles, or sebaceous hyperplasia (benign growth of an oil gland).
Individuals who are pregnant, tanned, currently using Accutane, or those with epilepsy should avoid IPL treatments.
**Enhancing Your IPL Results with Skincare**
At DCCM™, we believe in a comprehensive approach to skin health. Alongside IPL treatments, we recommend a sound at-home skincare routine. In fact, each client who purchases a series of 4 or more IPL treatments will receive a complimentary skincare kit to help optimize their results.
Embrace the transformative power of IPL and discover the joy of revealing a fresher, more radiant you. We look forward to guiding you on this exciting journey to healthier, younger-looking skin.
