Anti-Aging Treatments with Pure Light Laser

Anti-Aging Treatments with Pure Light Laser

Last year I turned 35, and I started to really feel the need to explore options for anti-aging treatments. I was also looking for a treatment that could combat my redness from my hormonal acne. That is when I learned about IPL, also known as a Photo Facial. I met with Rita at Pure Light Laser to discuss my skin goals and concerns, and she agreed that IPL would be the best fit. There are so many different treatments and products out there that are geared towards anti-aging, but it really does take sitting down with a professional and having your skin examined. It is important to learn what would be the best for YOUR skin.

So what is an IPL/Photo Facial?? In case you don’t know, I will fill you in! IPL (intense pulsed light) is an advanced laser therapy treatment that works to improve your tone, texture, and helps clear vascular scarring, sun damage, acne and rosacea. It also works to safely treat aging & photo damaged skin on the neck, chest, hands and just about anywhere on the body.

IPL – The Process 

Rita cleanses the skin before examining the areas to target. As I also want to combat my redness, Rita focused on those areas to start. The laser feels like an elastic being pulled on your skin, but I would say the pain is totally manageable! (If it wasn’t, I would not have done multiple treatments ;-)).  This treatment is pretty quick, with minimal downtime. I have been able to leave her office every time and still go out with a bit of makeup on. Don’t worry, you won’t need to hide at home for days!

It is recommended to avoid heat and direct sunlight, and sunscreen should be applied daily. We spaced the treatments out by about two weeks to start. Once you really start to see the results, an IPL is recommended about twice a year to maintain your youthful looking skin!

I also purchased an Ultra-C cream from Rita that consists of Vitamin C, Vitamin B5 and Vitamin E, which helps with both anti-aging and redness. I have been LOVING this product so far!
