Have you been spending more and more time each morning in front of the mirror wondering why your skin is starting to look red and blotchy? Are those pores and tiny wrinkles starting to bother you? Do you find yourself looking at the anti-ageing creams and lotions more carefully when you’re out shopping? What you really need is an appointment with us at the Opulence Spa. Meet with our expert consultant who will tell you about this almost miraculous facials that will take care of all those problems you want to eliminate.
Intense Pulsed Light photofacials or IPLs as they are also called, can work on all the blemishes you see such as rosacea, redness, wrinkles, age spots, excessive pigmentation, large unsightly pores, freckles, acne scars, damage from sun rays and so much more. And what you will be left is smooth, gorgeous skin that seems to get younger all the time.
When you arrive at our Las Vegas facials clinic, our trained expert will study your skin carefully to make sure the treatment will work well on your particular skin type. IPL treatments are most effective on patients that have light skin with minimal or no tanning. And if your skin still retains some of its elasticity, that’s an added plus. You will also be asked questions to check for the medications you’ve been taking and if you’re pregnant (you will be asked to wait until after the delivery). Please feel free to ask questions of your own so you are well-informed about the procedure you’re about to take. The expert will also advise you on the number of sessions you might need to sit for so as to achieve the results you have in mind.
A typical IPL session takes about 30 minutes or so in which the therapist begins by placing a mask over your eyes to protect them from the bright flashes of light. Next, a cooling gel is applied on the target section of your skin. This gel works to cool the skin and the protect it from damage. A light-emitting wand is gently moved on your skin and the pulses of light that pass into your skin will remove all the fine lines, and discolorations of the skin. The light also stimulates the production of collagen, a kind of protein that plumps up the skin so that the wrinkles are removed and the skin regains its smooth texture.
IPL treatments cause the very minimum of pain and you’re only likely to feel a light, snapping sensation following by a lovely, soothing warmth in your skin. At the end of your Henderson photofacial, the technician will apply ice on the area to cool it further so there is no possibility of any discomfort. While these photofacials are very safe, you could notice some amount of redness and swelling that settles down within a few days. However, if you have taken more intense treatments like for acute acne, or deeper wrinkles, the redness might last a couple of days more.
You won’t need to spend a lot of time recuperating since the outer layers of the skin are left intact. But you will be asked to care for your skin by staying out of the sun and keeping it protected with generous applications of sunscreen. After these first few weeks, you will notice a gradual rejuvenation of your skin. Each day, it will be clearer, smoother and you will be spending a lot of time in front of the mirror, loving and revelling in the new, glowing you!
