October first rolls in here in Calgary and Fall is pretty much wiped out by winter in a few short moments. As much as we miss the summer warmth, and fresh crispness that is fall, winter means we get to get in to the GOOD treatments so YAY!
Now that summer has faded, you are left remembering how much fun you had every time you look in the mirror. Sun spots, blotchiness and uneven skin are a drag and as much fun as you had getting them, they are no fun now. However; our new mantra this fall is:
Got sun damage? Don’t get mad – Get EVEN!
The best way to ‘get EVEN’ toned skin? Intense Pulsed Light. IPL is not a new technology, but it is the BEST for creating luminous, even skin tone. It has decades of research behind it and has proven over and over again to create smoother more even toned skin – safely.
Studies have proven that IPL will:
Reduce brown spots – you can expect an overall reduction in any brown pigmented spot. Some spots like true blue sun spots (Solar Lentigines) can easily be removed. Other brown spots like mild age related spots (mild Seborrheic Keratosis) can be notably lightened with IPL, but not fully removed. To know what you can expect, book a consult.
Reduce Redness – You can have redness in your skin for many different reasons. Sun damage doesn’t just create brown spots, it also creates red patches or red blotchiness. Other times redness is present because of medical conditions like rosacea, or a medication. Sun damage related redness can usually be eliminated for good. Redness for other reasons can usually be managed.
Increase Luminosity – Multiple studies have proven that IPL can increase the “Luminous” effect of individuals skin. Photo graphic evidence as well as control group testing have shown that post IPL clients have an increase in “luminosity”
Stimulate Collagen – this is one of the lesser appreciated effects of IPL, it stimulates superficial collagen. This is the collagen then helps skin be smoother and less wrinkled. One study used a series of punch biopsies before and after IPL to prove this and other control group type tests have supported this conclusion.
Make you happier – ok, ok, this one we CAN’T prove. What we CAN tell you is that over and over and over again we hear clients tell us that it great it feels to receive compliments on how great their skin looks, or how much easier their mornings are when they spend less time feeling frustrated by skin tone, or how wonderful it feels when HR at their new job comes to confirm their date of birth because surely they must have written the year mistakenly….. all these are true stories that to us confirm an increase in overall satisfaction with ones appearance.
If your sun damage has got you flustered, remember:
Don’t get mad! Get EVEN – and IPL can do that!
