Healthy skin is part of your overall health. While spa treatments serve their purpose to get you to look your best, the aesthetic specialists at Radiance Aesthetics & Wellness in Manhattan believe in a holistic approach that includes lifestyle changes.
There’s no way to halt the aging process, and some skin changes, such as “laugh lines,” are the result of living well. After all, what good is a life without laughter? Even with the most careful attention to what you eat and drink and how you take care of your skin, you may find yourself missing that youthful glow and wishing for a smoother, clearer appearance. You may have non-age related skin woes as well, such as rosacea or scarring. That’s where laser skin treatments can help.
An IPL photofacial (sometimes known as an IPL facial) uses light to get under the surface of your skin, smoothing it out and reducing discoloration. You’ll be given special eyewear to protect your delicate eyes from the light used during the procedure, and the clinician uses a handheld device to focus high energy beams of light on problem areas.
IPL photorejuvenation works by lightning areas of discoloration and creating new collagen under the epidermis, plumping your skin to create a smoother appearance. It usually takes several laser skin care sessions spaced a few weeks apart to achieve the full effect of the treatment, and you should continue your holistic skincare regimen to ensure maximum benefits.
