Varicose veins are swollen, gnarled veins that become visible on the legs, ankles, and feet. Many people find them to be unattractive and wish to have them removed. This is possible with the latest technologies in vein removal.
Photorejuvenation is also known as IPL, Fotofacial, and Photofacial. It’s a non-surgical procedure that can make your face look more youthful by removing:
● Redness from Rosacea
● Sun damage
● Reducing pores
● Acne scars
Photorejuvenation is not a new treatment for the above skin conditions, as it’s been available for 10 years. The effectiveness and short downtime are the reasons it continues to be one of the most popular skin condition treatments worldwide.
What to Expect from the Procedure
IPL technology emits high-intensity pulses of broadband light deep into the skin. A computer controls the range and frequency of the light to target blood vessels and melanin.
A topical anesthetic is applied to the treatment area 10 to 30 minutes beforehand. This will help with pain management. The number of treatments needed to reduce the appearance of redness and dark spots depends on the person’s pain threshold, but most people achieve their desired results in three sessions.
Treatment can take up to one hour, but again, it depends on how much the client can withstand.
Following IPL treatment, most people report the face feels warm and looks red and swollen. They describe it as looking like they have a sunburn on their face. It’s temporary and resolves within a day.
Bruising is possible for individuals who take aspirin, NSAID (such as ibuprofen or Aleve), Vitamin E and some herbs. Discontinue these products seven days before treatment to reduce the chances of bruising.
Mild blistering may happen, but usually, that’s due to the inexperience of the treatment provider. This is why it’s imperative to reach out to trained professionals in IPL or photorejuvenation.
