Who’s the most even complected of them all?
Uh... after enjoying all that summer has to offer, not me. Every year I spend time outdoors and get all kinds of sun spots on my face, but for some reason I do not notice them until right before Thanksgiving. Maybe it is because our Houston summers last so dreadfully long or maybe it is because Thanksgiving is the first big event for my family after summer is over. Whichever it may be, it is always too late to do something about it the day before the feast.
This year I’m determined not to repeat that pattern! While there are many different treatments and options to even out your complexion, one of my favorites is the IPL. IPL stands for Intense Pulse Light, also commonly known as a photofacial. The IPL is a non ablative laser that transmits different wavelengths into the skin to target sun spots, benign pigmented lesions, and redness due to broken capillaries. It can be customized for the patient’s problem areas as well as skin type and area being treated. After the treatment the spots get darker and within about a week will fall off. The best part is the IPL is virtually pain free and has no downtime.
Why start thinking about this now instead of procrastinating until the holidays? It usually takes 2-3 treatments to see best results and treatments should be spaced out at least 4 weeks apart. This laser does make you sensitive to the sun so make sure you don’t come in right after your vacation!
So we may not have any magic mirrors but you won’t need one after experiencing an IPL! Be sure to start this month, just in time for the holidays!
