IPL Skin Tightening Treatments
Naturalight IPL Skin Tightening Treatments
This treatment is considered to be a non-down time procedure since normal after effects and side effects are rare. This treatment is often done in conjunction with the regular IPL photo-facials for optimal results. IPL skin tightening treatments use intense pulsed light at specific wave lengths that are strongly absorbed by the collagen-containing and fatty layers of the skin. When this special light is absorbed, it transfers heat to this region, which results in the tightening of the existing collagen fibers and the stimulation of new collagen. In addition, a series of treatments, usually 10 initial treatments with a once a year maintenance, is required.
Intense Pulsed Light Skin Tightening Treatments Pre-treatment:
- The skin is cleaned.
- A clear gel is applied to your skin to improve the light’s penetration.
- The skin tightening head is pulsed over the skin, resulting in a warm heating sensation.
Intense Pulsed Light Skin Tightening Treatments Post-treatment:
- The gel is removed.
- A regular at-home skin care regime is vital to getting optimal results, and your recommended regime is discussed.
- Normal activities are resumed.
