Kinds of IPL treatment being offered at IYAC
IPL for rejuvenation of skin – This treatment would dramatically enhance your skin’s tone and texture, resulting in a marked decrease in open pores. The IPL beams are applied on the face of the patient, where it turns to heat energy and positively affects the tone and texture of your skin. It also helps to lower the process of skin discoloration and boosts the renewal of cells.
Laser Skin Rejuvenation (RevLite) – In this procedure, the light emitted from the laser permeates the upper skin layer and removes all the deep-seated pigmentation. It also boosts the process of cell renewal and addresses the problem of skin pigmentation.
Fotona or Laser for spider veins– In this treatment, the light energy is used to lower the occurrence of broken capillaries on the facial surface.
Dual Yellow Laser or IPL for acne – The yellow light used here helps to exterminate the acne-causing bacteria, thus removing all active acne. The Dual Yellow Laser also helps to address the problems of redness, melasma, and scars.
The IPL treatment doesn’t involve any side effects. This non-surgical procedure comes with zero downtime and patients can resume their daily activities immediately after a session. The only possible side effect is redness and swelling, which generally dissipates within a few days after the session. The laser circuit session at IYAC lasts about 45-50 minutes.
